Saving Warmth and Money Through the Winter

The cold winter months often deliver the highest utility bills, but there are some things that you can do to keep yourself warm without having to turn up the heat. Clothing makes a tremendous difference. Thermal clothing, such as thermal socks, are lightweight but can still retain tremendous amounts of heat.

Eating and drinking warm foods and liquids are also a good way to keep heat during the winter, as is keeping a blanket with you. Hats can conserve a surprising amount of warmth, and rugs will help on cold tile floors such as the flooring in kitchens and bathrooms.

Keeping doors closed will prevent drafts from traveling and slowly warm up the room you spend the most time in. If you’re a homeowner, you may want to check on your home’s insulation before the winter hits. Proper insulation can make a tremendous difference on how well a room heats up.
