The complete failure of Australia’s housing stock to be appropriate for living in during winter is in the news again: Australian homes are so cold that some are falling below the WHO’s recommended ‘safe’ temperature(external link)

A while back I added draught snakes under every internal door, and silicone strip things to block the 1cm of open space under our front and back doors, which has helped improve heat retention and thus our power bills. Only while we actively run heaters though 😒 I’m thinking our next step is to add window insulation film stickers to all our windows, but I need to do more research. And also psych myself up to do the job, haha.
