How to Stay Warm without Cranking Up the Heat

If you are trying to keep your heat bill at a reasonable cost this winter, it may be tempting to give in and bump the temperature up during those frigid days. However, there are a variety of things you can do to stay warm in your home without costing extra on your heat bills.

Spend more time cooking: Not only will your movement around the kitchen help keep you warm, but the consistent use of the stove and oven will help warm you up as well.

Drink warm beverages: ‘Tis the season for tea, cider, and hot cocoa! Drinking hot beverages will help warm you up from the inside, so your overall body temperature feels more comfortable.

Open curtains during the day: If the sun is shining despite the cold temperatures, open up your curtains and let the light in! The sun’s rays will help warm up the room and help your heating unit run more efficiently.

Bundle up by the fire: If you have a fireplace in your home, curl up nearby with your favorite book and blanket for an extra cozy afternoon.

Invest in insulated windows: If there is a chill in your home that you simply cannot shake, you may benefit from installing energy efficient windows in St. Louis County.
