De-clutter your radiators
Move everything away from your radiators. Long Curtains that cover them or the clothes you are drying on them all decrease the efficiency. Move furniture away from the radiators so air can circulate and heat the room correctly
Wrap your home up in cotton wool!
Well not exactly cotton wool! But alot of heat is lost through the roof of your property. make sure your loft insulation is of the correct thickness and into every corner.
Tin foil isn’t just for the turkey!
Put tin foil down the back of the radiators this will reflect the heat into the room more efficiently this is especially useful on outside walls. purpose made reflective panels can be purchased from eBay.
Installing a plastic film to the inside of your windows is a quickest and easiest way to insulate your windows against the cold weather. A pack to do an average size house can cost as little as 10 pounds!

Draft excluders are a cheap way to insulate a room. Soft furnishings such as rugs, carpets and curtains all give that extra insulation.
