    Keeping the heat in

    Heating Engineers

    Aside from keeping the doors and windows closed and having good insulation, how can I best keep the heat in different rooms throughout the house? I’d like to know how I can best achieve this ahead of the winter.

    "Loft insulation and underfloor keeps the heat in and the house warm. You might be eligible for a government grant if you meet certain criteria. Also having the right size radiators for each room makes a big difference."

    "Good Morning, the best thing you can do is close any curtains as soon as dusk occurs. Limit doors being opened even internally. The use of draft excluders (available on amazon) can really help - also try and insulate around any ill fitting doors."

    "Hi, you have answered your own question really in terms of good insulation, upgrading this would help with underfloor and loft unsulation too. Look at the potential heat lost through windows and window edges keeping in mind you need adequate ventilation around the house to remove stagnant air and other household airbourne moistures. Without the mix high potential of damp and mold could occur which ultimately have long term issues in its self."
