Top 10 Tips For Keeping Your Cabin Warm In Winter

As a landlord

Keeping Warm in winter does not have to be a challenge.

Here are our best tips for you to follow so that you can maintain a comfortable temperature in your cabin and save on heating costs this winter:

  • Check that the window and door are shut properly:  Air leaks around windows and doors can let in cold drafts, making it harder to maintain a warm temperature in your cabin. And we don't want that! Making sure that your window and door are shut properly will prevent cold drafts from getting into your cabin. If you do notice any wear or damage, then let our team know ASAP so we can help rectify the issue.
  • Having good curtains: Curtains help insulate your windows and ranch slider doors from the cold and prevent heat loss. Just Cabins provides high quality curtains to help ensure that no heat escapes unnecessarily.

  • Let the sun in: On sunny days, open your curtains to let the sun's rays help heat your cabin naturally. Just be sure to close them at night to prevent heat loss.
  • Use effective heating: There are plenty of good options for heating a small space like a cabin. Choose an energy-efficient fin oil column heater and place it in a central location for maximum effectiveness or a wall panel heater. Also, some Franchisees offer small efficient heaters for their cabins, so check with them first.

  • Invest in a heating timer: A programmable timer can help you regulate the temperature in your cabin more efficiently, saving you money on heating costs. Set it to come on in the morning before you get out of bed, or in the evening before you get home from work or school. This stops you needing to run your heater overnight or during the day when you aren't there.
  • Choose cozy furnishings: Cozy and plush fabrics give the visual impression of being warm. So do warm colours like reds, oranges and yellows. This visual impression can help you to feel warmer in your space. And it doesn't hurt to have a throw blanket to pop over your legs in the evenings!

  • Layer up your bed: There is nothing worse than feeling chilly when you are in bed. So, make sure you layer up your bed with warm coverings to keep you snuggly. A mattress protector is a good start, then winter weighted sheets and several blankets or a duvet. It can be a better option to have several thin layers so that you can add or remove them on a nightly basis, depending on the temperature.

  • Select a good cabin: Not all cabins on the market are easy to heat. By choosing a Just Cabin, you are making a warm and cozy choice. All of our cabins are fully insulated to ensure the heat stays inside to keep you warm all winter long!
  • Choose an off-the-ground option: Just Cabins are set up on wheels to allow air to flow freely underneath. This helps to keep your cabin warmer and drier as it is not sitting directly on the cold damp ground.
