It can be difficult to keep your home warm in the winter months especially if you live somewhere that goes below freezing. Not only can it be uncomfortable, it can also be deadly, especially if the power goes out. If the power goes out you will want to retain some of the heat that is already in your home. You can do this by cutting down on the amount of time you open the refrigerator or freezer. You can also roll up a towel and place it in front of the door, or cover it with a blanket. Also, consider installing a home generator in the event something like a power outage occurs.
- During a power outage, moving all of your activities to one room can focus the produced heat.
- Make sure all of the heaters are safe to use indoors, so that you don’t risk carbon monoxide poisoning.
- Sometimes it is easier, safer, and more convenient to stay at a hotel while the power is out.
“The first step to staying warm during a power outage can be summed up in a single word: conservation.”
