Winter in Brighton is simply beautiful and is always full of fun, exciting treats and places to explore. Brighton Pier is known to be a hot destination, for many of us. Heading down to the pier during the summer period is a great time to take in the blazing sun, the warm sand and witness a gorgeous view of the English Channel.
Nevertheless, living near the beach and being situated in a seaside town all year round, can have its drawbacks especially during the winter phase. Being situated on the edge of England, Brighton is largely exposed to strong winds, heavy rain and snow.
With the weather forecasting heavy duty snow for the south of England this winter, it’s time to bundle up, stay warm and start thinking about how to best preserve the heat in our homes.
Many of us are already experiencing the cold winter nights, some more than others. Cold drafts continue to invade our homes, as we’re left unsure where there coming from, which is leading to a lot of heat loss and rising gas bills.
Are Your Doors the Reason for Heat Loss
When it comes to heat loss, doors vary just as much as the different types of walls do. Wooden doors, for example, are more prone to heat loss, due to wood being a poor heat insulator. Typically hardwood doors tend to have a U Value of between 2.5 and 3, which is not very good. You can imagine after years of being exposed to the elements that those doors become even less energy efficient. This maybe one of the reasons why some of your homes are still cold today. If your home has wooden doors, maybe it’s time for an upgrade. UPVC doors, on the other hand, tend to have A U ratings, which is the highest when it comes to energy efficiency.
