This winter is scary. No one really knows what to expect, but all the indications are that it could be brutal.

I do some volunteering for our local food bank – Trussell Trust and our local Community Pantry – and I kept thinking about our people sitting in cold and worry. Given all the work I’ve done recently on creating a warm home I thought I must be able to use that knowledge to help people use less energy. 

So I set about trawling the web to find out what could be done. You’re sure to have seen some of the regular ‘10 energy hacks for the home’ or ‘5 ways to use less energy’. I read every one I could find and put them altogether into one booklet.Then I realised there are loads of people who could use them. I’m going to have a go at draught proofing the letter box and keyhole myself. 

This is not my intellectual property – I’ve pinched it all. So it’s here for you to read; download and print out; or download onto a kindle or your phone.

Help yourself. And if you know anyone else or any organisations that could use it, please give them the link.

Let’s help each other stay warm.
