Healthy home tips

Here are some simple tips for making your home warmer, drier and healthier.

Staying warm

  • Mind the gaps: Gaps around windows and doors can let cold air and moisture in – and let heat out. Consider buying or making draught stoppers to cover any gaps. 
  • Draw the curtain on heat loss: Stop heat escaping through windows by insulating them with good curtains. You’ll get the best results if your curtains have a double layer, are flush to the wall on both sides and touch the ground, or hang on closed curtain tracks.
  • Let the sunshine in: Sunshine is a free heat source, so open your curtains or blinds fully during the day. Make sure you close them as it gets cold or dark  to keep that heat in.
  • Pump it up: If you can, heat your home regularly through winter to keep it warmer and drier. Heat pumps are the best, most efficient heating option. 

Staying dry

  • Open wide: It may seem counter-productive, but opening your windows (and doors) wide for half an hour a day lets moist air out and fresh, dry air in. That makes it easier to heat your home - and helps stop mould forming. 
  • Keep a lid on it: When you’re cooking, put lids on pots and pans to avoid steam escaping.
  • Hit the fan: Your home should have extractor fans in bathrooms and cooking areas – make sure you use them to get steam and moist air out of your home. 
  • Get out more: Drying your washing outside not only saves you money, it also keeps your home drier - one load of washing can release several litres of water into the air. If you do use a dryer, make sure it’s ventilated to the outside.
  • Go with the flow: Clear your gutters or spouting regularly to ensure water flows away from your property – not into it. 
  • Wipe it away: If you have condensation on your windows or walls, wipe it up with a towel or cloth.
  • Put the acid on mould: If you have mould, stop it spreading by cleaning it thoroughly using soap and water, vinegar (ensuring to clean the vinegar off well afterwards), or methylated spirits.
