A warmer house this winter is possible, through the use of technology. Take a look at six of the best items to keep your home warm this coming Christmas.
A great way to waste energy and money is heating up your whole house when you are just using one or two of the rooms. This is why one really cost-effective solution is to purchase individual heaters, such as the slimline Eco Tubular heater. There is a built-in thermostat in the energy-efficient heating tube, and so it activates only when it is needed, and your can stand it wherever you need it or fit it onto any wall. It even is resistant to some inclement weather. The refurbished tech hub at eBay also offers more thermostat space heaters that are quite affordable.
Ethanol fireplaces are a great piece of tech. They look great, they’re easy to install and they can really make a home or room look great. There are lots of places that sell them and they can be a great addition to your home for Christmas.
The Tado thermostat is super-intelligent and can track all of the members of your house at the same time, which probably will have a lot of suspicious users thinking about ‘Skynet-esque’ future scenarios. However, this funky feature just means that your heating turns on only when somebody is coming home, so you can return to a heated home without wasting any energy. Or you can tweak your heating manually using the useful ap, that also shows you the amount of money you have saved on your heating bills since you installed Tado. Might as well blow your own trumpet, right?
Nest is among the best and original smart thermostats that can be purchased, to ensure your house is heated only when it is necessary. Controlled via the simple built-in control, adjustments can be made via the useful phone app as well. The Nest thermostat, like the Tado, also can track your movements automatically, so your house isn’t kept warm when no one is home. Despite all of its complexity, it is surprisingly easy to operate and install the Next, that gives your the best of both worlds. The refurbished tech hub on eBay also has many great value heating gadgets available.
The refurbished version of the Warmlite Mini Fireplace Heater provides a nice 3D fire effect, helps you feel very cozy as you are curled up on your couch. Best of all, it is very efficient. A timer and two heat settings means you won’t waste any energy heating your house when you don’t have to, and the top setting can get your room toasty very quickly.
Whenever it is minus figures outdoors and the sun is barely managing to show over the horizon, why should you bother to get out of bed? A much smarter solution is plugging in your Silentnight Comfort Control Electric Blanket and then get settled in and watch Netflix all day long. The ultra-thin nano wiring on the blanket is very energy efficient, and it comes with three heating settings, so you can always keep the temperature the way you want it. You can also use it while you are sleeping, and it is safe to put in the washing machine and dryer also.
If you have a radiator that is as cold as ground hamburger, then there is a good chance you will have to bleed them. Fortunately, you can get a bleeder key on eBay for just a couple of English pounds, which will sort out your problem quickly. It features a universal design which means the key will fit into almost any radiator around, and a quick twist will result in the troublesome liquid tricking out into a build-in bottle, to prevent any puddles.
