How to safely keep your home temperature up if you lose power


Losing power in the winter is never good – it’s absolutely important to stay warm! However, it’s also important to stay safe so here are a few ways you can plan to stay warm if the power does go out in the winter.

One way is a kerosene heater, but put it next to a slightly open window for ventilation. You can also pile all the blankets and warm-blooded creatures into one room to keep the temperature up – invite the dogs, too! Heating one room is easier than heating a whole house. 

Be very careful with candles – they are a fire hazard and they don’t actually create that much heat. If that’s your only option click the link to see a DIY candle heater. 

If all else fails, bundle up or find a warming center nearby!
