Tricks to heat your home without heating in winter

Facing the cold without consuming energy is possible with a few rugs and the right blanket

January is synonymous with cold and with the cold of winter, bills tend to skyrocket a bit more. What if the heating to all wick, what if a long hot shower, what if more washing machines than normal because winter clothes fill up earlier. To overcome both the low temperatures and the dreaded January slope, we tell you several tricks with which you will be able to heat your house without using the heating.

First of all, think about putting rugs. They are an excellent thermal insulator, which protects against humidity and cold. However, the ideal floor to combat the cold is parquet or carpet. In addition, rugs help make your home a more welcoming space. Decoration and warmth at the same time. Two in one.

Speaking of decoration, another trick is to fill the walls, especially those that face directly outside, with books and paintings. In a way, it is like dressing on a bare wall. With this idea, your temperature will rise and the feeling of cold will be less.

Don’t forget that candles are also useful for heating small spaces. One option is to distribute them around the different corners to ensure that the temperature increases € as long as they do not stay on if you leave home.

In addition, the house should be ventilated daily, nothing to have it closed. Five or ten minutes is enough. Discard the very cold moments and look for the incidence of the sun. It is already known that solar rays are one of the cheapest heaters.

Of course, once you have ventilated, it is best to close the doors of the rooms in which we are not. This will prevent the cold from spreading throughout the house and more comfort is achieved in the rooms in which we are.
When it comes to clothing, there are two key tricks. On the one hand, it is recommended to dress in warm colors to catch the sun. Colors and temperature are related: the darker an object is, the more heat it absorbs. If not, think that when you dress dark in summer, you tend to be hotter. The same happens with the colors of the rooms. It is preferable to choose warm colors to paint the walls if the house is especially cold.

And, on the other hand, what would become of us without the blanket, that faithful companion on winter afternoons? The most effective ones so that the cold does not pass through are those made of wool, polar, and flannel, made of polyester and cotton or synthetic fibers, respectively.

Another ally is the adhesive tape, to cover possible fissures that may be indoors, windows, and various cracks.
