We are going to invest in carpets but at the moment it's the old original wooden floors so very chilly. It's worse in the mornings then starts heating up but rapidly loses the heat if we go out/go to bed.
We are going to try and improve the heat loss etc but as a shorter term solution is there any hints and tips to make the place at least feel warmer? (Without great expense upfront or long term)
Yy thickest curtains you can get/make, draught excluders, door curtain & those stuffed draught excluders for the bottom of doors. Electric blankets & hot water bottles & throws when your lounging on sofas. Some rugs & if funds allow a wood burner.
Suspended ground floor is the worst, get the draughts blocked down there. Also take a look at the upstairs ceiling. Plus all the usual areas like behind kitchen cabinets, loos, external doors and windows. Between a tube a sealant and can of Pu expanding foam you should be able to get most of the way there.
Could be an unplastered wall or gap from pipes or blowing down from a void behind the plasterboard or from under the floor at the edges. You're going to have to go round and seal as many as you can, make it an obsession for a month, if you're struggling Jos stick can help to follow the draughts.
