Warming Up Your Home For Winter – Our Top Tips

Was your gas bill higher than expected this winter? You are not alone. The majority of us become more reliant on heating during the winter months to keep our home warm. But is there any way you can keep your house warm without spending so much?

Jennyfields have provided high-quality, aluminium windows and doors to our commercial and domestic clients for over 30 years. Keep reading to find out our top tips for warming up your home in the winter, without racking up too many costs.

Window Shopping – Literally

Having the right type of window for your home is essential; while wooden frames are readily available, they can be damaged easily, and water from rain can weaken the structure causing cracks that allows cold air to enter your home. On the other hand, alloys such as aluminium windows are cheaper alternatives that last longer, if looked after. This is definitely something to keep in mind when you are browsing for new windows.


Think Thermal

Did you know you can get unique curtains that keep the heat inside? These are called thermal curtains, which tend to be thicker and heavier. They can be taken down once summer rolls in, and help to improve the efficiency of aluminium windows and doors, saving you money in the long run. These curtains work by raising the insulation level, trapping cold air between the window and the curtain, preventing the draught from entering the room.


Door Sweeps For Efficiency

Adding door sweeps is another effective countermeasure against the cold. These long metal strips, usually made of silicone, neoprene or nylon can be mounted to the bottom of the door in a range of styles and sizes. Sealing the gap between the floor and the door, they save you money on heating, and help prevent pesky insects from entering your home.
