Cosy Up to Helpful Heating Ideas
When outside temperatures dip it’s time to start getting a whole lot cosier indoors with handy and practical gadgets to ensure your household can still function efficiently in spite of the cold weather.
What sort of hard working practical solutions can we help with to supplement conventional heating that can be off-puttingly expensive to run?
For starters, If you’d like the look of a real fire but without the faff of daily fire lighting and cleaning then free-standing stoves with a realistic glow are a perfect alternative. They give your living room a cosy ambience and genuine warmth along with a focal point to style your seating around, all while sharing heat across the room.
If it’s wet and miserable outside you might be finding it tricky to get your washing dry on the outside line or rotary airer, not mention the mess of walking wet muddy footprints inside. Our heated airers are a great alternative to both the hassle of line drying and the cost of tumble drying. Instead they let you air clothes naturally in your utility or spare room like on a standard airer but with a built in heating element, that warms and dries your washing, both cost effective and easy to run.
Heat Anywhere in the Home
If you’re lucky enough to enjoy a wood burning stove or a real fire you’re always sure of a warm welcome but it can easily get messy without the right fireside accessories. Hearty log baskets make fabulous dust collecting storage for dried logs and kindling, plus you can keep newspapers and card tucked away out of sight too.
Working from home might be a new thing for lots of us this winter. It’s far from practical to incur the expense of heating the whole house just to keep one person warm while sitting at a desk during the day. That’s when practical oil filled radiators come into their own. Perfect for your home office, craft or hobby room, today’s contemporary radiator designs are sleek and stylish, compact and on wheels to switch effortlessly from room to room bringing heat exactly where you need it – including giving you a few extra months in the conservatory to keep the frost off your houseplants.
Finally, adding one or two small plug in halogen or fan heaters can also be very useful for corners of any small room delivering instant heat to your feet turning a chilly sitting room into an instant snug.
