CASH-SAVVY Brits have discovered an affordable Amazon bargain that will stop condensation and keep your home warm – and it costs less than a fiver.
Despite the temperatures dropping and the gloomy winter season lurking around the corner, most families in the UK are putting off switching the heating on to keep the costs low.
A recent study by The Sun found that if you were to keep the heating on throughout the night for eight hours, it could cost you £13.44.
Multiply that by seven and you’re paying £94.08 for the week – which works out astronimical for the month.

Whilst it's easy to just ignore the water droplets sitting on your window, condensation is a problem that can lead to mould – and this is can trigger several health issues.
The NHS explained: “Moulds produce allergens (substances that can cause an allergic reaction), irritants and, sometimes, toxic substances.
“Inhaling or touching mould spores may cause an allergic reaction, such as sneezing, a runny nose, red eyes and skin rash. Moulds can also cause asthma attacks.”
But instead ot tackling it with expensive heating, the Window Insulation Kits you can snap up on Amazon work like a charm, making it the perfect winter hack.

This savvy product traps the air between the thin layer and glass to prevent condensation, as well as keeping out any cold draughts.
The affordable buy has also received hundreds of positive ratings online, with one writing: ''Easy to fit and effective.''
Another customer said: ''They definitely prevent condensation.''
A third chimed in: ''I’ve used this method of heat loss before & it works well.
''This size will only fit 1 of my windows. The tape needs pressing well in place.''
Someone else was happy but warned fellow customers about a slight downside: ''Generally very easy to install, especially if there are two of you.
''However the film was very prone to static build up, which made fitting larger sheets a bit awkward as it wanted to stick to everything except the tape.''
