Why is my house so cold during winter?

Have you ever sat at home on a winter’s night and felt like it was colder inside than it was outside?

Or in the warmer months, felt it’s just as scorching inside than standing out in the sun?

Many of our homes are designed for climates of other countries – like the US and UK – but not necessarily for our own.

And that’s why sometimes through extreme weather it may seem like your house isn’t doing it’s job to keep you warm and cosy, or cool and refreshed.
