Are you living with a secret heater?
As the dark nights are closing in and you feel like hibernating for the winter, keep an eye out for those pesky little secret heaters creeping around the house! You might think that your home is staying at a reasonable temperature and there’s no need to turn the heating on just yet, but be warned; it has recently been reported that as many as a quarter of us are switching on the heating without telling anyone.
The best way to avoid a thermostat war with your fellow house dwellers is to find a compromise, keep the heating on but at a slightly lower temperature. Did you know that by reducing it by just 1°c, you can save up to 10% off your annual fuel bill?
If you are holding back on ordering your heating oil to avoid this battle, remember that the fuel prices are currently still very low especially for this time of year.
You’ve got to admit, waking up to a warm house in the morning does make it a little easier to get out of bed.
