Try these tips to warm up your home and yourself for the holidays:
Electric Blanket – Sleep comfy and cozy.
The easiest way to get rid of the problem is by focusing on your own individual temperature. There’s no need to heat the whole house when you’ll be sleeping in your bedroom the entire night. Instead, go with an electric blanket to keep your body temperature warm and toasty. If you don’t want to invest in a heater for every guest and every room, a heated blanket may be a wise choice.
Space Heater – You Need the Extra Heat.
If you’re cold all the time, you may want to invest in a heating system. When you’re still browsing around for heating system installation, invest in space heaters for guest rooms to keep your home warm and cozy throughout the holidays.
Flannel Sheets & Warm Throw Blankets – A Soft Touch.
It’s time to change the sheets with those great flannels to keep you warm at night. When the temperature drops suddenly, you’re often caught off guard. When you don’t want to use the heater, a cheaper fix to save money on heating your home is keeping flannel sheets or fuzzy throw blankets on hand for when you feel the chill.
Rugs & Curtains – Welcoming and Warm.
Both rugs and curtains will help keep the heat inside your home. Rugs will keep your feet comfortable and warm. Cold air can creep in through the windows, but curtains offer a source of insulation to keep the cozy warmth inside.
Fireplace & Candles – A Little Holiday Spirit.
A single tealight candle is surprisingly a huge source of heat, but a fireplace is sometimes all the warmth you need to heat an entire home. You’d be surprised how much heat is released from even a small open flame. There are plenty of reasons to light a fire in the winter or just in time for the holidays. Who doesn’t like to get toasty by the fireplace?
Hot, Winter Beverages – A Winter Specialty.
The winter mornings and evenings can get quite chilly. Relaxing with your favorite hot tea, coffee, or a package of marshmallows for a delicious mug of hot chocolate will help warm you up.
Feast & Bake Cookies – Comfort Food.
The biggest source of heat in a home without a heating system is the oven! Do you remember the days when your parents or grandparents would leave the oven open to heat up the house after a day of baking or cooking? If you need to warm up your home for the holidays, then this is the perfect opportunity for a day of cooking up a feast and baking cookies or desserts to heat the home.
As always be sure keep warm this winter with the above tips or using your home heating system.
