You’re the captain of the good ship ‘Home’ and there are a few things you can do that’ll make a big difference and save you a fair bit of money - especially in winter.
We’re not trying to tell you anything you don’t know - but everyone needs a reminder now and then about the small things that make a big difference. Here’s some healthy habits you can keep up to make the most of your home.
Move your sofa
Move your sofa and make sure it’s away from the windows so those curtains can do their job. Use the opportunity to reposition for optimal winter TV viewing.
You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
Even winter has sunny days - and sunny air is dry air. So put clothes outside to dry, open up the windows and wipe off any condensation. That’ll help keep your house healthy for those rainy cold days when you can’t make the most of the outdoors.
Keep your home ventilated
Reduce moisture in the air by opening up windows and turning on extractor fans when cooking and showering.
