There’s no denying that things are becoming a bit chilly. Wintery weather and the pandemic are both causing us to spend an increasing time at home - making it more important than ever to stay cosy. Not only is it more comfortable to be warm, it’s healthier too. To help us all stay warm this winter, Vent-Axia has therefore given us its top nine heating tips to get cosy and also help save some money on heating too.
Demonstrating the importance of a warm home, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic, the government has just released Health matters: cold weather and COVID-19. The guidance looks at how cold weather impacts on health but also how COVID-19 increases cold-related risks, including health issues that arise due to coexistence of cold weather and COVID-19. Poor quality housing, particularly cold homes, is cited as a major risk factor. Vent-Axia is committed to public health and helping in the nation’s response to COVID-19 and so is therefore offering nine simple tips accompanied by infographics to help combat cold homes:
“This winter, everyone will appreciate a warm and cosy home and our tips are aimed at helping people find multiple ways of both increasing warmth and saving money. Making a few small changes can make a big difference. Add to this the latest electrical heating options that are an efficient, practical alternative to gas central heating, offering improved performance and low-cost installation, as well as being almost maintenance free,” explains Tom Wodcke, Product Manager at Vent-Axia.

As well as comfort, a cold home is a health issue too. A cold home is more prone to condensation and mould issues, which reduces indoor air quality (IAQ). In addition, it exacerbates conditions such as circulatory problems, diabetes, arthritis and asthma and can cause increased blood pressure and risk of clotting, suppression of the immune system, stroke, common colds, heart attacks and pneumonia.
Electric heating can offer a simple and affordable way to boost heating in the home, with low capital and installation costs. And with the option to add heating to individual rooms rather than the whole house, costs are kept to a minimum. Vent-Axia offers a wide range of modern, energy efficient electric heaters and it is simple to choose the right electric heating for your home by visiting the company’s online heating guide www.vent-axia.com/tools-services/heating-guide.
