Keeping your home warm in the colder months is extremely important. Why? The NHS advises that it is extremely important to keep your property warm for health reasons. It is not about just feeling warm and comfortable. Especially if you have known conditions such as heart and lung disease.
Mould can affect people with asthma badly. Infrared heating warms all the surfaces and prevents moisture forming on the walls. It also reduced convection heat and therefore circulation of dust, pollen and other allergens. This is also import to reduce viruses and bacteria spreading in your home.

NHS tips – Keep your home warm
Follow these tips to keep you and your family warm and well at home:
- if you’re not very mobile, are 65 or over, or have a health condition, such as heart or lung disease, heat your home to at least 18C
- keep your bedroom at 18C all night if you can – and keep bedroom window closed
- if you’re under 65, healthy and active, you can safely have your home cooler than 18C, as long as you’re comfortable
- use a hot water bottle or electric blanket to keep warm in bed – but do not use both at the same time
