With a big warm blanket, a cup of hot cocoa and a roaring fire, keeping warm in the blistering cold weather is so cosy that it seems you don’t want it to end.
The cold weather may be cosy and a delight, but it means bad news if you’re living in an apartment. Some residential brokers in Australia sometimes don’t tell renters that the property they’re leasing can be as cold as the ice age during winter.
Keeping warm in an apartment can be difficult as it can keep you toasty just for too long, eventually, you’re going to need some help.
Luckily, we’re here to give you some useful tips on how to keep warm in your apartment during the cold weather.
1. Keep your thermostat on the low side. Maybe keep it between 60 and 65, just as a preventative measure when the full on cold breeze blasts your apartment. Even though you’re going out for work, the thermostat will keep your home warm and toasty, so when you get home, it doesn’t feel like you stepped inside a freezer.
2. If you have a balcony, and your balcony has furniture, then it’s wise to bring that furniture on the balcony inside the apartment.
Why? Moisture is bad for furniture. Cold weather brings tons of moisture. Furniture outside, means it’s susceptible to cold weather, ergo it’s susceptible to moisture.

3. Watch out for black ice! Repeat after us. AVOID BLACK ICE like the plague.

4. Store lots of blankets, and while you’re at it, grab a handful of Snuggies. Yes, we know that Snuggies look ridiculous and makes you look like you’re about to sacrifice a goat, but it does keep you warm.
5. Get baked! And by that we mean, use your oven to warm up your home. Instead of using your stove, why not cook in the oven. Its fumes will keep you and your apartment toasty like bread.
