Reduce Your Heating Bill and Stay Warm This Winter

Monday, 11 November 2019  |  Olivia

We're all familiar with the agonising winter-time dilemma: do we chatter our teeth in our icy living-rooms, or turn up the heating and rack up huge debts? Sufferers of Raynauds disease are particularly aware that even something as simple as heating your home doesn't come cheap.

Fortunately, this article deals with several ways to save on your heating bill this winter, meaning you won't have to choose between buying Christmas presents and basic human comfort! 

Tricks To Reduce Your Electricity Bill

Following are some quick tips for reducing your heating bill:

  • If you've had a shower, leave the bathroom door open so steam spreads to the other rooms
  • If you're cooking, leave the kitchen door open so the warm air from the oven or stove can percolate through your home
  • If it's dark outside then keep your windows covered
  • During daylight keep your blinds open, as the light will help heat your home
  • Light a candle and (carefully!) hold the flame near windows and doors. If you see smoke moving in a horizontal direction you've probably spotted an air leak that might be letting the heat escape. Some insulating material can be easily used to patch this up

Why Is It Important that Raynaud's Sufferers Keep Their Hands Warm? 

Raynaud's disease makes sufferers particularly sensitive to cold temperatures. The disease affects blood circulation, and warmth will help to loosen the blood vessels up and increase your circulation. The fastest way to gain relief from the pain is by warming the affected area.

Top Tips On Heated Blankets Or Capes for Raynaud's Sufferers

Try tucking the heated throw under your knees or around your ankles where blood flows through your pulse points! Why not buy two? Then you can make sure you have a spare blanket while the other one is recharging.
