- cavity walls filled
- double glazed windows
- the hot water tanks and pipes were lagged
We came in the house with good habits such as ensuring that the appliances and gadgets are not on standby and assets - all our lights are energy savings light bulbs. Nevertheless, there are still few things that are ought to be looked into more closely:
- draught strips around windows and doors
- heating controls programmed

- Change the front door
I have to choose one of those options. I might start with a door draught excluder!
