Living in Portugal

Are you living in Portugal and the coldest you have ever been?

Many people we meet socially tell us that their first year in Portugal is the coldest that they have ever been. For some reason they cannot get their house warm and dry.

This sounds so incongruous and exactly the opposite of what you expect when you come to a warm country. Certainly all those thoughts of outside dining, barbecues with friends and soaking up the sun seem a little fanciful when your teeth are chattering and your walls are covered in black mold.

Although the learning curve is steep It certainly did not have to be because with a little planning they could have spoken to Castelo Construction and chosen from a wide range of services from insulation, new windows and doors to get their home toasty in time for winter. Services like supply and installation of wood burning stoves, pellet burners and central heating.

Just think how nice that would be in January.

location is important to get the best out of your stove

 Stove prices are at their lowest and you will be able to haggle.

We are not expecting rain so opening up walls or the roof to install the flue is not a problem.

Cement and plaster will have a chance to fully dry before you light the fire.

Fuel is also at an annual low price so stock up and get ready for winter.

 

 

6 Tips, Make sure that you use a double skin flue tube. This has many advantages and is well worth the extra cost.

If the stove seller is installing the stove don’t assume that he is using “expert installers” take some photographs during the install in case you have any problems later.

Ensure that the stove pipe has cleaning hatches both inside and outside the house.

It is vital that the stove pipe is the correct length. We often come across problems with flues that too short.

The stove flue pipe must have a hat on the top or rain will enter and rust your stove during the winter.
