Stay Warm and Save Money
Keeping warm in Cold Weather
Keeping warm in the colder months is essential for your quality of life but it’s becoming increasingly expensive.
Just three things are needed for you to be warm and comfortable in your home.
- It must be reasonably draught proofed (we can help with this)
- you must provide enough heat to be comfortable and
- you must ventilate to reduce the risk of condensation
How To Avoid Dampness and Mould
Lack of ventilation is the biggest cause of condensation and this can lead to mould growth on walls and ceiling and, in extreme cases, on furniture and possessions.
If you cook in saucepans without lids, dry washing on radiators, use an unvented tumble dryer and bathe with the bathroom door open you will make matters much worse.

You must heat your home and this becomes ever more expensive.
