When investigating, why the Front Hall has been cold in previous winters & find:

(1) A big hole at the Elec. Distribution Board, where the cables feed in through the wall. (There was even a draft today, when there is barely any wind!) 💨

(2) No Insulation in wall over door + cold air blowing directly into the 1st floor joists… 🥶
