As we all know the weather condition of Pakistan. It is extremely hot in summers and cold in winters as the average room temperature is about 4 degrees to 5 degrees during winters. This kind of temperature is a very big problem for the people living in apartments. As we all know due to gas shortage we also can’t use heaters to control room temperature. I am going to share some tips which I used to keep my room and apartment warm in winters. Hope you will like it.
Close the Doors properly
The idea is to stop ventilation of any kind. Close all the doors and windows tightly and be sure you have stopped any kind of ventilation. You can also fill the space near windows with silicone for good results. This is the easiest and affordable way of insulating your apartment.
Use Thick Curtains
Thick Curtains protect your apartment from losing heat through the windows. Curtains with the thermal lining are cheap and affordable. You can also use double curtains for good results.
Clockwise Fan rotation
No one knows this little apartment hacks. If you want to keep the room warmer, make sure that your fans have a high speed and clockwise rotation. Clockwise rotation pulls the cool breeze up and mixes it with warm air and then warmer air pushed down and you feel warmer.
Let the sunlight come in
Sunlight is the ideal and free source of heat and it also keeps your apartment warmer. On a sunny day in winter, open all the blinds, doors, curtains and let the sunlight come in as much as possible. The natural light warms up the entire apartment. When the rooms become warmer, close the curtains, blinds, and doors. This will trap the heat inside and you can keep your apartment warmer for many hours.
Another tip is “use of proper placement of furniture”. If you are using heater, radiator or any fireplace. Place the furniture in distance because furniture absorbs and block heat and you cannot keep your room warm.
