Tips on staying warm during a snow day no matter how frigid the weather outside gets.

Layer Up

It's easier to change your body temperature than room temperature, and it's way more eco-friendly. Instead of turning up the heat, put on another layer of clothing or make yourself a warm cup of coffee or soup.

Use the oven for cooking and baking

When the weather is bad, it's much safer and easier to stay home and cook a meal. Using your oven will warm the house up while also filling up your stomach.

Turn on the ceiling fan

Warm air rises to the ceiling. Run your fan on its lowest setting in a clockwise direction to push the warm air back down to where you can feel it.

Harness the sun

During the day, open the blinds and curtains on the south-facing windows—and let the sun warm you. At night, close the blinds and curtains to better insulate your home.

Block drafts from underneath doors and windows

Keep heat in and cold out by putting a towel at the bottom of the door or window. If you want to get creative you can cut a pool noodle in half lengthwise, wrapping it in fabric, and sliding it under your door.
