Today is the first day of winter - a perfect day to winterize your apartment (if you haven't yet already). In this blog post, we'll share some simple, cost-effective ways to keep your apartment warm and snug during the winter months.
1. Let the Sunshine In:
Tip: Open your curtains during the day to let in natural sunlight.
Why: Sunlight is a natural heat source. Allowing it to pour into your apartment during the day can naturally increase the temperature.
Bonus Tip: Close your curtains as soon as it gets dark to keep the heat in.
2. Rearrange Your Furniture:
Tip: Move furniture away from heating vents.
Why: Furniture can block heat from circulating properly. Rearranging it can improve heat distribution throughout your apartment.
Remember: Ensure that sofas or beds are not blocking radiators or vents.
3. Use Rugs and Carpets:
Tip: Place rugs or carpets on bare floors.
Why: Bare floors can account for up to 10% of heat loss if they're not insulated. Rugs and carpets add an extra layer of insulation.
Style Tip: Choose a rug that complements your room's aesthetics while adding warmth.
4. Use Humidifiers:
Tip: Place a humidifier in your living space.
Why: Moist air feels warmer than dry air. A humidifier can add moisture to the air, making your apartment feel warmer.
Health Benefit: Humidifiers can also prevent dry skin and respiratory issues in winter.
5. Cook at Home:
Tip: Bake or cook at home more often.
Why: Using your oven and stove can raise the temperature in your apartment. Plus, you get a delicious meal out of it!
Safety Reminder: Never use your oven as a heat source.
By implementing these simple tips, you can create a warm, inviting space that combats the cold outside. Stay warm and enjoy the cozy comforts of your winter-ready Deveraux apartment!
