Shorter days and falling temperatures get us thinking about how we can keep ourselves, our homes and our families warm and snug during winter. There are lots of changes you can make – some big, some small – to improve the overall health of your home over the colder months.
Whether you own or rent, you can make your home warmer and healthier this winter.
But to keep your home toasty and warm, you need a four-pronged approach that considers all of these aspects. An insulated, well-ventilated home without enough heating will still be cold, while a dry home with no insulation will cost a fortune to keep warm.
Don’t know where to start? Consumer gives you the information to make the best decisions to suit your needs and budget. We’ve got advice on what you should tackle first and which improvements will give you the best bang for your heating buck.
