They may be useful, but doors and windows are a real issue when it comes to heating and feeling comfortable in our homes. There are, however, many ways to improve your fenestration, and they needn’t be costly – door socks are making a big come back (make your own!) and the thermal qualities and draughtiness of all glazing can be improved by the addition of insulating curtains, shutters, blinds (the latter must be fitted properly to prove effective against draughts), or relatively inexpensive secondary glazing.
Note: We would always advocate timber doors and windows over uPVC – see materials.
