Avoid Covering Radiators During The Cooler Months
Radiators are mostly found underneath windows or along walls which are perfect for sofas and chairs; and usually covered which is bad during the winter months. When the radiators are turned on the hot air is limited as the heat hits the chair or whatever is in front of it and doesn’t circulate the room. This means one of two things; firstly, you have to keep the heating on for longer in order to heat the room and secondly the bills are going to increase. Instead, avoid placing objects in front of the radiators or at least avoid larger furniture pieces. This will help the hot air flow naturally and prevent it from being restricted also. If in doubt, call your Charlotte heating and air companies for more advice.
