As the weather worsens and it starts to get darker outside earlier now that we’re well and truly in the winter months, have you noticed your home is feeling more cold and draughty?
Does your home fail to warm up no matter how long for or how high you have the heating on?
Your home may be suffering from cold spots.
Everglade Windows install PVCu windows in Harrow and Brent to eliminate cold spots and keep your home warmer and cosier.
How to check for cold spots
Cold spots are areas in your property where the hot air inside your home is sucked out through a gap or hole, making the area feel colder than the rest of the room.
You can easily test if you have cold spots by simply holding your hand about 30cm away from the window and moving it around until you feel a draught.
Or you could place an incense stick on the window cill and watch to see where the smoke goes. If it travels to a certain part of the window, you can see where your cold spots are.
If you can see that your PVCu windows are suffering from cold spots then that’s a good indication of how effective they are at improving the energy efficiency of your home.
Energy efficiency is really important in homes as the more energy efficient your home is the more money you’ll save on your heating bills.
