for under doors, if so do you use the brush ones you attach to door, or use the old sausage dog style, i tried the sausage dog style last year and drove me nuts with son in and out of room, anyone use the double style ones? are they any better?

I use the double sided ones which consist of a piece of foam you cut to size and slide under the door. They do work pretty well, but don't look great to be honest.

yeah i was thinking of going for these ones as last year everytime kids went out of room you got to go and put it back, son is in and out like a yo-yo, but they i agree they dont exactly look very nice, its either this one or try the brushes but they dont exactly look to nice either and they are for downstair rooms

Moob there awesome where did you grab them from and are they as effective when using on carpetted floors?

sassie if you have a local initiative to insulate your home they may fit them for you?
i had it done few years ago and they fitted the brushes which tbh were v good.

if you don't put the heating on you won't get any draughts as the whole house will be the same temp....

yeah me too, but it doesnt stop the draughts which make the house still feel cold, front door is a bodge up (double galzed, pvc) which is why the front room has the draughts under door, putting the heating on 24/7 doesnt stop this

put brush draught excluders on the front door then - problem solved.

Didnt the council fit it free anyway, in which case they should fix it?

no the council didnt fit it, the door doesnt seal properly, so draught excluders on front door wont help

Why not? You can get ones that fit completely around the door frame to make a seal on gaps up to 1cm

makes sense to stop the draught at entry to the house, not seal off colder rooms.

November,that's quite late.

Average temp is 9-16C in October down here so a jumper is more than enough in October for us. Only fully put the CH on in late december until early march.

Got cavity wall and full D/Glazing so that keeps it warm (my 50" plasma chucks out a fair bit of heat too lol).

Grim wind chill outside at times mind as I live on a beach.

fleabay mate - wouldn't recommend them too much mind, they move about a lot when you open/close the door and you have to reposition them all the time.
