In this time of economic stress it is important to pay attention to even the smallest details. And these can make a difference and make us save money.
If we don’t want to spend an arm and a leg to stay warm in our home, we should always start with the maintenance of the radiators.
In particular, radiators should be thoroughly cleaned before the cold season arrives. Soak a soft cloth in warm water and Marseille soap and distribute it over the entire surface.
Remember, then, not to place furniture or sofas in front of the radiators, so as not to hinder the escape of heat. Finally, we use the valves to set the right temperature in every room of the house.
The furniture does its part
The way in which we furnish the house also counts towards saving on the bill. In this regard, we should ensure that the heat is distributed uniformly throughout the room and there are no unnecessary dispersions.
To help us, we may decide to install energy-efficient doors and windows. We particularly recommend those in PVC or aluminum of the latest generation. Obviously, even in this case it will be necessary to carry out regular and correct maintenance.
Let’s get rid of the old curtains and choose a new model. On the market there are special thermal curtains or double curtains, which will limit the dispersion of heat.

Early in the morning or when we clean the house we usually open the windows to change the air. It’s not a bad move, but let’s be careful.
We air once a day and for a short time. A couple of minutes may be enough. On nice days, we don’t hesitate to let the sun in. We open shutters and shutters to properly illuminate the room.
The time has come to say stop to the very high bills, to heat the house while saving costs, a few simple tricks like these are enough.
