Other Ways To Keep Your Home Office Warm
Space heaters are relatively inexpensive. They can be a quick way to keep you and your co-workers warm! Space heaters should be placed at least 3 feet away from anything that could burn and have proper ventilation. If it gets hot around the heater, try reducing the thermostat to turn it off automatically when it gets too hot.
Purchase A Wearable Blanket
On cold days, try staying in your pyjamas and slipping into a comfortable blanket. Wearable blankets are great! You can get them in different sizes and colours to match any outfit or room décor. They keep you warm without being heavy or bulky.
Turn On Your Ceiling Fan
Those who aren’t looking to invest in a blanket can keep the heat down and their neck warm with an office ceiling fan. Using the ceiling fan to circulate warm air around the room converts that warm air into usable heat, distributing it to cool areas of the room, creating a more evenly heated space. It also helps dehumidify the air, keeping you comfy and your energy bills lower.
