10 tips to keep warm without heating in winter

In winter, our homes are not always as warm as we would like, or we decide to reduce our heating to save money. How to get warm without heating? 

Close the windows and the shutters

To warm up without heating, you must start by preventing the cold outside air from penetrating inside. You must therefore close the windows and shutters at night because it is the coldest at night. the shutters offer a little extra insulation.

Let the sun in

If you want to prevent the heat from escaping, you must also let in as much heat as possible.

Open shutters in all rooms of the house on sunny days in winter will let a little heat in.

Airing the interior

Even in winter, it is a good idea to air out your home. A few minutes when it is cold in winter is enough to renew and purify the air. But also to warm it up if the weather is good. Airing also helps regulate the humidity inside - and too much humidity makes you feel colder in winter.

Install curtains

Thick, pretty curtains placed on the windows and closed in the evening and at night can insulate the windows a little and thus keep a little more heat inside.

There are also heat insulating curtains. If they are not to your taste, place a double rod and 2 curtains (or 2 pairs of curtains) at each window.

Insulate the openings

It is at the level of the windows that the air escapes the most if they are not well insulated. In order to keep warm without heating, it is therefore necessary to insulate the openings.

It is possible, without changing the windows, to improve their insulation with new window seals. You can also add caulking between the frame and the window. These can be found in home improvement stores. You can also place an insulating film on each window or a low-emissivity adhesive thermal insulating film (effective and durable).

Putting mats on the floor

Insulating the floor also helps to keep the heat in your home. Place beautiful carpets on the floors of all rooms (kitchen, living room, bedroom, bathroom ...).

Prefer carpets made of natural materials, cotton or wool, very thick.

Close doors

Warm air always goes towards cold air; so if you have rooms that are colder than others, they will draw warm air from your warmer living rooms. Closing the doors inside your home therefore allows you to insulate the rooms that are less used and in which there is less heating. And thus to preserve more heat in the more used and warmer rooms.

Adding door sills

You can find pretty and modern door bottoms. Remember to stick yours against the door.

Seamstresses can easily make one. Simply measure the width of the door, add 2 cm of seam allowance, determine the thickness (and therefore the diameter) of the doorstop you want. Then calculate the circumference (diameter x 3.14) which will be the width of the rectangle of fabric. Cut the fabric according to the measurements obtained. Cut out 2 circles for the ends (with 1 cm seam allowance). Join the ends of the rectangle right sides together; join the circles and rectangle right sides together. Turn over. Stuff. Close the hole left to turn the work over. You're all set!


Cooking is a good way to warm up without heating: you create heat by preparing dishes, provided you use the oven or the cooking plates.

So cook to warm up your home. The idea is not to increase the electricity bill, but to enjoy good food by warming up the interior a little. Optimize the oven by cooking the preparations one after the other or even at the same time if everything fits in your oven.

Use a hot water bottle

To place in the bed, in the sofa... A simple and practical object to warm up without heating. If you want your hot water bottle to be pretty, buy or make a cover to your taste.
