Keeping cool in the hot summer weather and warm in the cold winter months

With the cost of living being so high and families struggling to pay their energy, food and general household bills every month, keeping cool during the hot summer days and warm throughout the cold winter months, without spending extra money is more important than ever. Keeping cool is mainly about having plenty of good ventilation and air circulating throughout your home. Having Brise Soleil blinds fitted on your home not only helps protect you from the intense heat and damages caused from direct sunlight but also allows natural light into your rooms. These elite blinds can be purchased from professional companies such as alusystems.uk and they can also fit them for you.  Wearing light clothing made of cotton and drinking plenty of water to stay hydrated is important, use a high factor sun cream, and wear a hat and sunglasses when outside.

Staying warm throughout the cold winter months is more difficult without spending extra money on heating but it can be done.  Wear several layers of clothing, have plenty of hot drinks and eat warm foods, such as stews and soups. Keep your curtains or blinds closed alongside internal doors and windows to prevent draughts.  Put extra blankets on your bed and use a hot water bottle or heated blanket, which is reasonably cheap to run.

Unplug anything you don’t need and turn off standby switches, heat only the room you are in and speak to your Energy supplier if you’re struggling to pay your bills.
