Keeping Warm This Winter

Keeping warm this winter can be expensive with the rising cost of heating supplies. Not to mention the stress of the possibility of a broken boiler. Contact Numbers UK is a directory system that allows easy access to a database of useful telephone numbers for a number of different sectors. It is the easiest way to connect you to organisations like British Gas. Contact Numbers UK are helping you keep warm with their #WinterHeatingHelp campaign. That's why I have put together some top winter heating tips for your home to help you stay warm this winter.

Cold air tries to carry your body heat away. Blankets form a barrier between your body and that cold air. Since heat doesn't transfer through the blankets very well, they keep the heat from getting out. Wrap yourself up in a blanket on the sofa while reading a book or binge-watching Netflix.

Hot Drinks

Very little in life can’t be improved with a hot drink. Switching the kettle on, sitting down and putting the world to rights with friends and loved ones is pretty much a national past time. Grabbing a tea, coffee or hot chocolate warms your cockles and warms up your hands, mouth, and stomach. Hot drinks also taste great!

Slippers are comfortable, warm, slip-on shoes that you can wear inside. Experts warn having cold feet really can increase your risk of catching colds and the flu. So not only do slippers keep your feet warm and cosy they can decrease your risk of getting sick!

Hot Water Bottle

By keeping a hot water bottle near the foot of the bed it will not only help you fall asleep when it's cold, but it won't need to be turned off like a heater or electric blanket. Hot water bottles are a great cheap way of staying warm this chilly season.

Also keep warm, cosy and maintain that valuable heat by keeping doors closed and putting down a rug. By leaving the oven door open after you've finished cooking will also heat a room. Even moderate exercise can help keep you warm.

Energy providers like British Gas can help to keep you cosy this winter. They have flexible tariffs and they can provide you with smart meters and boiler/heating cover. You can also use active heating systems (such as Hive). British Gas is the largest provider of energy in Britain. Providing more than just electricity and gas to Britain’s businesses and homes. British Gas offers a wide range of services to help households and businesses. Not only helping you save money but also live in a safe home and work environment.
