Should You Heat All Rooms in Your Home?

There are many factors to consider when heating an individual room in your home. The main heating method has the greatest influence on whether you heat the room or not. If you have a well insulated house, it may not be worth the effort to individually heat each room.

However, if you have a small or unheated room in your home, it may be worthwhile to heat it separately. This will help you save energy and money.

Using a smart radiator thermostat can also help you to control the temperature of each room, but they are more expensive than standard thermostats. They can be a good choice for those with gas or oil central heating. Depending on your needs, you might also want to consider a space heater or gas fire.

A simple way to determine the temperature of a room is to place a paper towel on the floor. It should feel warmer than the room itself. Wearing slippers is also a good idea. Slippers with covers create a warm air pocket, which helps retain warmth.

Another way to keep your feet from getting cold is to lay a rug on the floor. Rugs will help to keep the heat in, and help you keep your feet warm.

While it may seem logical to turn off the heat in your bedroom at night, this can actually hurt your health and increase your utility bills. Having a warm bed is important, and turning it off at night can make you less productive.
