Wear warm clothes

Keep your home warm

  • If you have reduced mobility, are 65 or over, or have a health condition such as heart or lung disease, you should heat your home to at least 18C. It’s a good idea to keep your bedroom at this temperature¬†all night if you can. During the day you may prefer your living room to be slightly warmer. Make sure you wear enough clothes to stay warm.
  • If you’re under 65 and healthy and active, you can safely have your house cooler than 18C, if you’re comfortable.
  • You can also use a hot water bottle or electric blanket (but not both at the same time) to keep warm while you’re in bed.
