Once dinner comes out of the oven, we all close the door again. But why waste that heat? Leave the oven door open and let the heat transfer slowly into your kitchen, it’ll help keep your house warm while you eat. And, naturally, keep the kids away from the door. Wooden floors might look lovely but they can also let heat escape from right under your feet. Putting down a warm rug covers up the gaps and ensures your toes stay toasty.

Clear your radiators. Try and avoid placing large pieces of furniture in front of them. At least in the short-term, the sofa you love by the radiator is absorbing heat, says Neuburg. Putting a shelf above the radiator, especially if you have high ceilings, can also help channel the warmth, adds Neuburg. But it’s important not to place things on the radiator itself, she says, “You can put a shelf above it to stop the hot air rising directly above it.” This is particularly the case if the radiator is below a window with curtains, where warm air would be trapped between the window and the curtain. Shut up unused rooms, says Neuburg. Keeping doors closed will prevent cold air moving into the rest of the house and contain the heat you’ve generated in a smaller area.
Glow-Worm tends to sit in the category of “best of the rest”, with other boiler makes such as Vokera, and Potterton. Glow-Worm are a cheap boiler brand. They tend to be used on budget renovations and rental properties. Reliability wise, they’re certainly not known for being up there with the likes of Vaillant, Worcester, Ideal and Baxi. That said, they do offer 2 and 5 year warranties on their boilers, so in the short-term, they’re cost effective. It’s not all bad-news. Glow-Worm boilers are regularly priced as “special offers” at local plumbing merchants. So, that means they are cheap to buy, and cheap to install. Expect Glow-Worm to be priced similar to Vokera boilers, if not a little cheaper. Find additional information at https://www.peterbrown.net/.
