If you don't already have a heater in your home, you may want to have one installed. Even if you have been getting by using things like heating blankets and massive amounts of blankets and clothing, you may find that having an actual heating system can make your winters much more pleasant. In fact, you might find your heater brings you some surprising benefits you never imagined and here are some examples of some of the surprises you may get to enjoy:
The freedom to use your hands anytime
If you have a cold home in the winter, you may have become used to doing things like pointing the end of the remote control at the TV from under the blanket so your hand isn't exposed to the cold air or waiting to type your emails until the space heater has heated the work corner of your room enough that you can move your fingers freely, without them being too stiff form the coldness. You might be surprised when you have a heating system in your home that you can use your hands all day and night without them being stiffened from the coldness.
The ability to roll right out of bed
You may have your alarm set early, so you can work up the nerve to get out of your warm bed and step into the cold air. When you have a heating installation, you can change the time on your alarm clock, because you will no longer need all that time to prepare for the cold. Instead, your mornings will start pleasantly, with you simply waking up and rolling out of bed into a nice and warm bedroom.
The chance to have your own side of the bed
When you don't have a heater in your home, you and your partner probably curl up together in bed and don't move much, for fear of letting some of the cold under the covers. When you have a heater installed in the home, you can get your own side of the bed back because the two of you won't need to try to share body warmth to get to sleep. You can once again move around at night and get nice and comfortable in a toasty bed.
The ability to wear what you want
When you have a heater in your home, you won't have to wear a lot of clothing to walk around the house. If you want to wear your favorite pair of pajamas or even a pair of shorts, you will be able to do so, even when it is the dead of winter outside.
