It’s that time of year when the heat has to come on, so I was going to write a post filled with furnace and heating jokes. But, with so many people likely unable to afford their heating bills this winter, it felt in bad taste. So instead I offer these tips to keep warm (from a cheap Canadian):
- dress in layers, and don’t forget a hat – you lose a lot of your heat through your head.
- Insulate your windows with plastic sheeting, and make sure no drafts are sneaking in under doors.
- Let the sun shine in when it can, but when it gets dark, close your blinds/curtains as an extra layer of insulation.
- If you do lose heat/power when it’s below freezing outside, leave your taps running just a little to prevent them freezing.
Good luck, everyone!
