What does it cost to stay warm at home?

Jo Haywood Reporter from Homed

If this cold snap is getting to you but you're worried about the cost of cranking up your heating, don't despair.

We asked the energy experts to breakdown the running costs of all our favourite winter warmers, so you can work out how to get the best heating bang for your buck.

And while it's no shock that firing up a 2Kw electric heater doesn't come cheap, the price of a warm bed for a toasty night's sleep might surprise you. Check out the full rundown, including electric blankets, hot showers, heated towel rails and more, here.
