Winter in Cairo:

Thus, the weather can get pretty chilly. That is why it is important to follow the tips below to keep your homes warm.
1. Use the curtains:
The simplest tip to keep your home warm in the winter is to use the curtains to insulate the home from the outer temperature. When you are able to do that, it becomes easier for you to maintain the appropriate temperature inside. Even though you might be using double glazed windows, curtains will help you in setting the right temperature in your home. You have to ensure that especially during the night time; you keep the curtains closed in order to avoid the heat loss.
2. Cover the walls:
The walls normally have a temperature much lower as compared to the temperature inside the house. Under normal circumstances, in the winter, walls can reach the temperatures which are up to 4 cooler as compared to the temperature inside the home. That is why it is a good idea to keep the walls covered. If the walls are in direct exposure with the air inside, they will cool the air faster. As a result, there will be considerable heat loss. On the other hand, when you can keep the walls covered, it will become easier for you to avoid the contact of the walls with the air inside.
There are multiple ways in which you can cover the walls. These include:
• Building a bookshelf
• Using paintings
• Using a tapestry
• Creating shelf-based furniture
The option which you choose is entirely up to you. By covering the walls, you can easily maintain a comfortable temperature inside your home and you can actually make your home much warmer.
3. Moving the furniture to the right places:
The higher the temperature at which the furniture of the house, the warmer will be your house. Instead of stacking up the normal sitting as well as sleeping furniture near the walls, it is a good idea to position it in the center. This will ensure that the core temperature of the walls does not impact the furniture. As the furniture will remain warmer, it will not only help you to be comfortable inside the home but will also keep the air warmer. Thus, you have to move the furniture to the right places inside the home in order to keep the home warmer.
These are the 3 simple tips which you can use in order to keep your house warmer. Additionally, there are a few solutions which you can incorporate into your home in order to make it warmer.
We will now share with you four solutions which you can utilize in order to keep your home warmer.
The best solution to keep the home warmer is to trap the heat inside. When the air at the higher temperature comes in contact with the walls, it cools down. However, if you are able to use radiator panels in your home, you can be sure that heat will be reflected rather than being eliminated. You can use the radiator panels throughout the rooms. This will ensure that the heat is reflected back into the room which will help you make your apartment much warmer.
2. Efficient Boiler:
Throughout the winter season that is from the months of December to February, you will be using the boiler extensively. That is why it is important for you to get the boiler serviced. Once you are able to get that done, you can be sure that maintaining the warmer temperature inside your home will be comparatively easier. It is a good idea to get it serviced before the winter season embarks.
Just like the walls, the floor can also get pretty cold during the winter months. The best way to insulate the floor from the air inside the home is to use the rugs. The thick rugs will ensure that the colder temperature of the floor does not impact them. As a result, the floor will be insulated from the air inside. This will help you in maintaining the warmer temperature inside your home.
You have to use insulation like foam wherever possible in your home. Some of the places where you can use such insulation include pipes as well as windowsills. With the help of proper sealing, you will be able to insulate your home from the cold air outside. In case, there are cracks in the walls, you can use the spray foam as insulation. You can also use spray foam for closets as well as behind the cupboards. This will ensure that you are able to insulate your home from the harsher temperatures outside.
You can also use spray foam on your roof with the help of roofing professionals.
With the help of these solutions, maintaining the warmer temperature in your home will become easier. You will be able to stay comfortably in your apartment or villas during the winter season as well.
Thus, instead of just using the heating system on full power, it is a good idea to follow some of these tips and solutions in the months of December to February. Once you are able to do that, it will become easier for you to make your home warmer in the winter.
