Keep your pets warm in winter!
It’s nearly that time of year when the heating is on full blast and the cat is sitting next to the fire, but do your pets stay warm when you are out of the house?
For those of us who have pets, it is really important to make sure the house is warm enough whilst we are out at work or school. It is easy to forget that temperatures can dip very quickly in the home when the heating is off and everyone is out. No wonder they are usually pleased to see you when you get home!
Of course, you can keep the heating on all day whilst you are out, to make sure they are warm and comfortable, but that can be really expensive. You don’t want to be heating the house for an extra 50 hours a week or more just for your cat or dog.Well you might… but its a lot easier to keep them warm another way.
Your pets will thank you for insulating your home!
Insulation could dramatically reduce your bills if you are leaving the heating on for your pets. Instead of the boiler working all day to keep the temperature up, insulation will slow that heat loss from the house, and ensure that the boiler only needs to kick in occasionally to get up to temperature. You will probably set the thermostat a bit lower for your pets than you would for yourself, so it is even easier for an insulated house to hold temperature during the day.
