Sharing tips for keeping warm and being economical with fuel 🥶
I have been thinking about the best ways to keep warm, be efficient with heating sources and managing humidity/ condensation etc in the home.
I noticed that public information has recommended just heating one key room in the day and the used bedrooms at night. Some of us have been doing that for years (frugal or efficient?).
The big one for me is managing condensation. My gut is too open windows to create air flow and a route out for moisture, but then the cold air rushes in (and warm air out). Damp washing is a nightmare as the tumble drier uses an eye-watering amount of electricity but leaving damp washing/towels creates humidity.
I bought an over-sized fleece jumper last year and that is wonderful. Same for thick fleecy or knitted socks. I have been known to have a hood or hat on to warm up too. Blankets/throws are a must.
What do you all do to manage heat and moisture in the home? Any top tips for keeping warm?
