Discover how you can increase the temperature at home this winter
Saving on the electricity bill is an issue that has become paramount in Spanish homes in the last year, especially for those with a regulated rate. The rise in food or gasoline prices due to inflation has caused spending to be cut and every euro that comes out of the pocket is looked at. Winter is key since the use of heating or any electrical device to heat the house will be accompanied by a higher expense.
One way to save is to isolate the windows from the cold, since up to 35% of the heat from heating can be lost through the cracks. If your house gets colder than usual, it may mean you have window problems.

The way in which they open also has an influence, which is why casement windows are better than sliding ones.
The blind or even the box may be the key to increasing the temperature of the rooms in your home in winter. It is a complement that reinforces thermal insulation. To prevent colder from entering, you can choose PVC or aluminum blinds. In the case of the drawer it is also convenient that these materials.
In case you cannot afford the cost of a reform of this type, there are cheaper solutions. To prevent cold from entering the blind box, you can use a foam or roll insulation if you think it is not well insulated, since this is an entrance to the outside.

Their installation is very simple, but it is convenient to review them from time to time to check their status.
To increase the temperature of the home, it can also be useful to choose thicker curtains, or place wooden furniture or carpets.
