We only have horrible gas convection heaters - there are 3 in the house, 1 downstairs and 2 upstairs (one in each bedroom). We have a nightmare keeping the house warm and getting clothes dry. We rent so we can't do things to the house to help save us money. My mum is sorting us a curtain for the front door and one for the back door.
Our house is freezing, like very very cold! we have a breeze coming from under every windersil!! our front door has no post cover thing on, and theres a huge gap at the bottom to let air in!!
i have emailed the landlord 10x and still.. nothing! its so cold in the bedrooms!!
what can id o to warm us up? we use dressing gowns ect but still soo cold!
Put a draught excluder at the bottom of the door for a start.
You can buy some nice ones now or you can make one of your own. Even if you just fold up a blanket for now it will help.
Once your post has been you could cover the letter box, as long as you remember to uncover it the next day. Even if you tape a bit of cardboard over as a makeshift flap it might help. Just put the tape at the top and not the bottom.
Do you have an agent working between you and the landlord or do you deal directly with him? Keep nagging and calling and emailing and keep copies of everything. He has a duty of care so you could even go to CAB and get some advice.
If the window sills are ill fitting you might find some sort of sealant that you could use to fill in the gaps, especially if it's under the sill rather than on the frame. I think I've seen them in Poundland even.
