How to Stay Warm in a Cold House


Staying warm in a cold house does not always mean heating up the area around you. You can heat up your body in different ways so that a cold house doesn't feel as cold. That doesn't mean that some type of way to heat a room isn't a good thing, but you can save energy by keeping yourself warm instead of making spaces warm.

Things You'll Need

  • Clothing layers
  • Space heater
  • Lotion
  • Put on clothing layers. layers trap air pockets between you and the cold and act as an insulator. Start with an undershirt, put on a t-shirt, don a lightweight knit and top it off with a tight fitting sweatshirt. Over that put on a sweater and you won't be cold for long.

  • Cover yourself with a blanket when you are relaxing. For added comfort, make it an electric blanket that you can use for relaxing and sleeping.

  • Do some aerobic exercise. Once you get warmed up you stay warm for quite some time. Heating up your body will take the chill out of any cold house. The cold house air will actually feel good when you are finished.

  • Use a space heater in small rooms. There are many energy efficient models on the market today that will use only a fraction of the electricity of older models, yet will heat up an entire room and make it warm and comfy.

  • Take a hot shower. Put on lotion to help keep the heat in, then bundle up in layers of clothing.
