2. Limit your heated area
In extreme cold condi- tions, it’s best to pick one room to keep warm rather than distributing your limited heating through- out your entire house.
Obviously, if you have a fireplace or wood stove, then the choice is made for you. Otherwise, select a room on the “warm” side of the house (usually the south end), away from prevailing winds.
If there are rooms in your home that you rarely use, consider closing the heating vents in those rooms and shutting the doors. This will divert more heated air into the rooms you are using, while cutting back on your heating costs.
When trying to stay warm, it’s a good idea to consolidate your bodies in one room. The heat from your bodies and breath alone will help to stabilize the temperature in the room.
