Portuguese homes are among the coldest in Europe.

Portuguese homes among the coldest

According to figures by statistics agency Eurostat, more than one in five Portuguese say they do not have the means to keep their homes warm enough. Currently, only citizens in Bulgaria, Lithuania, Greece and Cyprus are less able to afford the necessary heating in their homes. However, the number of Portuguese suffering in unheated homes has improved substantially in recent years, dropping from 40 to 22 percent in the space of ten years.

What a find I'm so happy that this is not just me. All my homes here are hard to heat and have also been wet. Thanks

I've only been here 2 months and I cannot believe how cold the floors are here, having lived in Switzerland for over 10 years. In a new build with cork insulation and feel like I'm walking on ice!

I hope this is not an indication of insulation against the heat in summer.
