Whilst the experts predict that November will be relatively mild, it is only a matter of time until winter rears its ugly head. After all, British weather may not be reliable but it is certainly brutal. Luckily, there are a few ways you can prepare your home for the drop in temperature and there’s no time like the present to start. Read on as we go over the top three things that can help keep you warm this winter…

Draught Prevention

A draught is one of the biggest causes of wasted heat and energy in the home. In fact, they can make you feel cold even when you have the heating on full blast. Luckily, if you get yourself in a habit of conscious draught prevention, you can ensure that your home is prepared this winter. For example, close the doors behind you and invest in a draught excluder to place in from of troublesome doorways.

Declutter the Gutters

Although  everybody knows that the leaves fall during autumn, gutter blockages tend to go unnoticed until they cause a serious problem. After all, your gutters are essential at draining water away from your roof and if they become obstructed, you can end up forking out for an expensive repair job. In order to ensure that your home isn’t vulnerable this winter, you should ensure that your gutters are clear of leaves, birds nests and other debris.

Stock Up on Fuel

With gas bills increasing every year, it can be beneficial to invest in an alternative way to heat your home. After all, there are numerous benefits to investing in fireplace or stove fuel like coal or seasoned firewood. With this said, the prices tend to increase the closer it gets to the winter months so you should stock up on fuel ahead of time in order to get yourself the best price.
