I kind of agree and not -
This is the warmest country (in winter) that I have ever lived in
Much warmer than England, Scotland or Mid-West USA (Indiana)
WITH THE COLDEST HOUSES!!!
We are 20 years behind the times - people live in Canada and Germany in houses that don't need any heating!
Spend just a few more dollars on insulation and decent double glazing
And you can have a warm house on a very small heating bill,
When I was in Christchurch I had a house built - double the standard insulation, underfloor heating, solar heating panels, UPVC windows
Lovely - then I had to move - did the extra comfort make it sell easily?
What do you think?
