Well, the colder weather is certainly drawing in and, as we sit here in our offices with jumpers firmly on, our thoughts have turned to heating our homes and how we can keep them warmer for longer, while spending less money. 

That might sound like a pipe dream but we've found a few ideas that can actually make it a reality! Taking inspiration from heating engineers, who are accustomed to helping clients get more from their heating, we compiled this brilliant list of ways to keep your home feeling warmer, without breaking the bank.

Get wrapped up and take a look!

1. Have your sofa facing a fire to get the maximum benefit and waste less heat

2. Keep curtains open during sunny days to draw natural heat inside

3. Swap out summer cushions for warmer versions finished in brushed cotton, flannel and wool, which will hold heat better

4. Shut your curtains as the sun sets to trap in all the heat acquired during the day

5. Add draught excluders to doors. You can even use plastic strips to stop cold air coming in

6. Set your radiators to super low in unused rooms to keep the edge off the cold without costing much

7. Rearrange furniture to ensure it's not in front of radiators or you'll be paying for nothing

8. Turn your thermostat down 1-2 degrees. You won't actually notice until your lower heating bill arrives!

9. Place tin foil behind radiators to radiate the heat out instead of letting the wall absorb it

10. Add a few thick rugs to keep your feet warm as you walk around

11. Get snuggly in bed with extra throws and blankets and have the heating lower at night

12. Bring in enough logs for the whole evening and next morning, then you won't need to open the door and let heat out

14. Letterbox draughts can be pretty significant so add an interior brush back to keep the warm air in and the cold out

15. Put heated towel rails to good use so you don't need the heating on high when you get out of the shower

16. Worry about you instead of the room you're in. Add extra layers and curl up under blankets rather than relying on your heating
