With the recent news that next month is set to be the start of the worst winter for decades, with record breaking snow predicted, Safestyle Windows have produced a really helpful online winter project that aims to help households keep warm whilst keeping bills down.

The Winter Warmer Checklist gives you 12 easy steps, to help ensure you have a warmer home this winter.

After successive winters of rising fuel prices, some homeowners are struggling to make ends meet and might have hoped that 2013 would be different. However, the early signs are that there will be further price rises in store as the evenings draw in.  In fact today British Gas have announced imminent price hikes.

Never has there been a better time to make your home as energy efficient as possible, keeping you warm in the winter and easing the pressure on your household finances.

Last winter, energy price comparison site uSwitch claimed 69 per cent of UK households went without heating at some point, simply to keep their energy costs down.  I know we try and hold off putting ours on as much as possible, however, with two young children in the house it is not always possible.  By implementing some of the tips from Safestyle you can leave the heating off and save money without feeling the cold.

From these free tips, such as keeping your internal doors closed, to the more expensive home modifications like investing in double glazed windows and doors, there are enough great ideas here to give your home a toastier feel this winter. Other top tips include adding insulation to your walls and loft, as well as switching to thicker curtains or blinds.

Commenting on the guide, a spokesperson at Safestyle UK, said: “While no homeowners will enjoy another round of utility price rises this winter, for some more vulnerable people on lower incomes, the thought of having to go without heat again can be very distressing.

“At Safestyle, we value energy efficiency in the home very highly, so we hope that some of our tips will enable homeowners to make simple changes around the house that will keep them warmer for less this winter.”

The checklist can be found here.  Why not print it off and keep yourself and your family that little bit warmer this winter, without it costing you too much!
