If it's wet than you need to open a window and let some fresh air in. Most of your heat will go up the chimney. Thick rugs on the floor help keep your body warm.
To purchase the right kind of clothing now for next winter I suggest you shop at www.landsend.com and get some Polartec. For the beds I suggest duvets (down filled comforters which can be placed in huge pillow cases [or, as some people call them...duvet covers] which are made by sewing two cotton sheets together to make the cover).
In Quito, at ten thousand feet above sea level, we had three fireplaces in a seven story house. We used one every day. Another we used once in a while. The one in the master bedroom was never used. We burned a lot of eucalyptus wood. The building had no other heat. We really liked our wool sweaters and our down filled duvets.
It's the dampness that makes it feel cold. A bowl of hot soup is a good starter for getting warm. That and some caldo de feijão in one glass and some cachaça in the other!! Tom
