Air vents in sitting room?

House we are living in is on top of a hill and it is always very windy. Always seems to be a constant draught coming through the air vent. And sometimes we can notice draught around the skirting board of the same wall as vent. All the rooms have the same vent on the outer wall are they safe to block up? We have an open fire in sitting room.

    It is up to you. Where it becomes a matter of law is if you are burning an open gas fire.

    You can try blocking them, but in cold weather, homes produce a lot of moisture (which needs to have an outlet), through cooking, bathing/showering, and drying washing indoors. This typically creates a lot of condensation on windows, and even mold on cold walls.

    A dehumidifier might be suitable for you.
