Season Of Mists

Well, autumn is just around the corner, with the first day of the season according to the meteorological calendar being 1st September.

It can be a beautiful season with the leaves turning gorgeous shades of gold, red and brown, but on the downside the evenings get darker earlier and damp mists and chilly days return.

Interestingly, according to a study by 'The Journal of Ageing Research', people who are born in the autumn are more likely to live to the ripe old age of 100! It's also said that those born in autumn do better in education. Famous people born in this season include Elizabeth 1, Roald Dahl, Agatha Christie, Michael Faraday (English chemist and physicist), Pablo Picasso and John Lennon.

Whilst you can't control when you were born, you can make sure you and your home are prepared for autumn. Now is a good time to check your doors and windows and consider more up-to-date, energy efficient replacements if they are old and worn. Similarly you may like to replace your conservatory roof with a Warm Roof that provides better thermal efficiency.

So be prepared for the season ahead - have a chat with the Horsford Team!
