4. Raise your humidity
The expert explained: “Winter air is often very dry, especially indoors. The seasonal increase in chapped lips and dry skin reveals that our home heating is sucking all the moisture out of our bodies, and believe it or not, dryness makes the air feel colder, too.
“Not only do we feel colder in dry air, but adding some moisture will actually allow your indoor air to retain the heat longer. Some easy ways to increase the humidity include having well-watered houseplants, bringing your laundry to dry indoors (bonus savings for not using the dryer!), and placing shallow water containers on heating elements such as radiators.
“It also helps to open the door after showering and letting that warm, humid air flow around your home.”
5. Insulate wherever you can
The attic may be useful for storage, but according to the expert, it is also one of the places that much of the heat escapes from. To stop this, Britons could add between 100 and 200mm of insulation on the attic floor to stop the heat transfer.
