Tips for keeping warm this Winter
  • Draw your curtains at dusk to help keep heat inside your rooms 

  • Don’t cover or obstruct your radiators or storage heaters

  • Food gives you energy and helps to keep your body warm so have plenty of hot food and drinks 

  • If possible, try to move around at least once an hour.

  • Wear lots of thin layers – clothes made from cotton, wool or fleecy fibres are good at keeping in the heat

  • Try and heat your home to at least 18°C 

  • Only use your electric blanket as instructed and get it tested every three years

  • Never use a hot water bottle with an electric blanket

  • If you have vulnerable neighbours or relatives, check on them in a Covid-safe way.
