Replacing old windows and doors, and insulating external walls, will help save energy and cut heating bills. However, the investment required may put a strain on the family budget
There are, however, a few “free" ways to improve thermal comfort at home:
- Wash your windows and clean your lampshades regularly in order to make your home brighter and reduce the need for artificial lighting.
- Make sure that radiators are not covered or blocked by long curtains or furniture.
- Air your rooms more efficiently in winter by opening the windows wide for a short period of time, rather than leaving them slightly ajar for a long time.
