Anyone got any good tips to heat up the house, we have storage heaters in my flat and they are just no good at keeping the room topped up with heat to the point we can see our breath as we breath, it is that bad now that we have been confined to one room in the house and cant go upstairs unless we really need to (To use the toilet).
havent noticed it before the snow/icy weather came in as it wasnt that bad, maybe just a bit of a draft. but since we came back from our break away last week we have really noticed the change in temperature and could do with suggestions to heat up the house, we have bought draft excluders for doors and are going to buy some thick curtains as the house is pretty old so may have small cracks around the windows.
also going to ring the landlord tomorrow to see if there is anything they can do like get the insulation checked in the attic as the upstairs is just so cold.
wouldnt really be bothered if it was just me and the missus but since we have a lil one the temperature just isnt acceptable for her well being and dont want her to be uncomfortable.
we have bought a fan heater and it does the job to some extent but it stinks the room out if left on for too long so not a good alternative.
anyone know if oil filled radiators are decent enough and dont have a lasting smell if left on for a prolonged period?
any help greatly appreciated as if this carries on we may just have to move house, we have only been here for a few months and had a fairly warm summer with not much problems due to temperature until the snow/ice this past week.
