In his most recent post, @thatpropertyguy has taken 30 seconds to offer particularly useful advice off the back of the disruption and harsh conditions that Storm Arwen has caused, with winds having reached up to 100mph and a pub in the Yorkshire Dales even having seen all its guests trapped inside by over five feet of snow.

In the clip, shared on November, 27, which has amassed more than one million views, the man says, ‘It’s getting a bit chilly, so here’s 10 hacks to keep your house warm in 30 seconds.’

The property expert then goes on to suggest all manner of ways of how you could help preserve heat in all rooms, starting with utilising your radiators properly.

He notes: 

Bleed your radiators to make them run efficiently. And speaking of radiators, use reflector foil to reflect the heat back into the room.

Use thermostatic valves if you haven’t already. Programme your thermostat so you’re not wasting heat throughout the day.

Simple acts like closing blinds and curtains can also help retain heat, as will moving furniture away from radiators to stop them absorbing heat.

If you want to have a go at fulfilling Insulate Britain’s proposition to the government, then you can even insulate your own walls, pipes and lofts.

You can also stop cold air from coming in by installing draught-proofing around windows and doors, if you fancy yourself as a bit of an amateur handyman.

Furthermore, after cooking, you can even use the oven as a make-shift radiator by leaving it open so its heat radiates into the rest of the room.

The Property Guy even gave a ‘bonus’ tip of doubling up on some nice woolly socks.
