Make sure your radiators are clear

If you have the heating on, you’ll want to maximise the heat it can give off. If something is covering all or a portion of your radiator, remove it so all radiators are completely visible, allowing the heat to effectively spread around the room.

Add an extra layer of insulation to your windows for £4.99

You can use transparent and airtight materials to give your windows an extra layer of insulation in the winter. Home window insulation kits can be bought for as little as £4.99 which will help block out cold drafts and keep more heat in.

Get a fleece sheet

Some people tend to get out or purchase a fleece duvet, which is a thick and sometimes softer alternative to a regular duvet. However, fleece sheets also help massively too, and can be a warmer alternative to most fabrics, costing just under £10.
