Some simple ways to keep warm, stay healthy and make the best use of your heating during the cold weather

  • heat your main living room to around 18-21ºC (64-70ºF) and the rest of the house to at least 16ºC (61ºF)
  • heat all the rooms you use in the day
  • if you can’t heat all your rooms, make sure you keep your living room warm throughout the day and heat your bedroom before going to bed
  • set the timer on your heating to come on before you get up and switch off when you go to bed
  • in very cold weather set the heating to come on earlier - rather than turn the thermostat up, so you won’t be cold while you wait for your home to heat up
