Living in a cold house isn't ideal for your health. Fortunately, there are some excellent ways to keep warm even though you lack a heater and in the process, you may even improve the efficiency of your home. Here are 5 ways to keep your home warm in winter without heater.
* Heavy curtains
Using heavy curtains is the key to keep your home warm in monsoon. You can also opt for darker shades to help make the place seem cosy and nice.
* Close off any unused rooms
The larger your home is, the more expensive it is to heat. If you have an empty guest room or storage space, close the door and seal it with a draftstopper. You won't waste money heating a room you don't use. Â
* Put down a rug or carpet
Rugs and carpets help prevent heat loss through the floor. They are generally warmer to the touch than wood or stone, and so offer a warmer surface to walk on.
* The right lights
Turn on some incandescent lights. The average incandescent light bulb releases up to 95% of its energy as heat rather than light, making it an extremely efficient heat source.
* Turn off your bathroom fan
And the one in your kitchen, for that matter. Exhaust fans in these rooms pull hot air that rises to the ceiling out of your home. If you must use them, turn them on sparingly and be sure to shut them off when you're done.
