Hi

 

We live in a 2 bed terraced house with single glazing and night storage heating. We pay £500 rent/month

We had to turn off the night store heaters over 2 years ago due to being unable to afford to run them. However wqe have now had to resort to putting them on and have endured some very cold winters.

Today, I know it is cold outside but my feet and hands are literally blocks of ice, the heat from the heaters is escaping through the single glazing and poor insulation around windows and doors.....surely we should not have to put up with this?

 

Any help appreciated, cheers x

There's no requirement to fit double glazing or a gas fired heating system (assuming you even have a gas supply). You say poor insulation around windows & doors, does this mean they're draughty? That should be dealt with. As long as everything is in a good state of repair, you're probably going to struggle getting anything done.

 

Have you tried asking nicely?

Yes the heat is just escaping through the freezing cold windows and the windows and doors are draughty!

The landlord moans and says we should be greatful when they fix things like toilets that dont flush or lights that dont work! So they arent going to care about this! Thanks anyway

You can seal draughts easily with foam strips from B&Q and windows can be insulated with plastic sheets taped to frame or heat shrunk, which you can buy kits for.
