Keeping your home warm in the colder months can be both a practical and financial burden. However, there are several strategies you can employ to keep your home comfortable and energy efficient whilst ensuring you don’t face an extortionate heating bill. Read on to discover our top 4 ways to keep your home warmer and more comfortable this winter.
1.Line your Loft
Did you know up to 25% of the heat generated by your home is lost through the loft? Insulating your loft can be a quick fix to trap more heat inside your home and keep it warmer throughout the colder months, whilst also saving you money on your energy bills. Here at Insulation Kings, we offer several products for loft insulation in a variety of sizes, including Superglass Multi Roll 44 and Superglass Handy Pack 044, and ROCKWOOL Twin Roll.

Perhaps one of the easiest and most cost-effective methods, heavyweight curtains over windows and even doors can significantly contribute to keeping your home warm. The added layer helps to keep the warm air in and the cold air out, creating a much more comfortable temperature.
3.Reduce Thermal Bridges
A thermal bridge is an area of an object or construction that has a higher level of thermal conductivity than the surrounding materials. Also known as a cold bridge, these areas can result in considerable heat loss, even if all of the precautions have been taken to insulate the area.
Our Marmox Thermoblock is specially designed to be placed at the cold intersection where the wall and floor meet to ensure maximum thermal performance. These blocks also create a waterproof barrier, so as well as ensuring your home stays as warm as possible, they prevent any build-up of condensation which could result in damp and rot.
Rugs are a highly efficient and cost-effective way to reduce heat loss and draughts through flooring. If you have wooden floors, the loose structure of this flooring type means you may be losing a substantial amount of heat. Invest in a thick rug to keep your home cosy throughout the colder seasons. Or, if you’re looking for a more permanent way to insulate your floor, check out our handy guide on floor insulation for everything you need to know and more.
