Draught Proofing

Draught proofing your home can save in excess of £120.00 in the average home

Draught-proofing is often overlooked - but it’s one of the cheapest and most efficient ways to save energy - and money - in any type of building.

Draughts are a bit like ventilation – both let fresh air into your home.

Good ventilation helps reduce condensation and damp, however, draughts are uncontrolled; both letting in too much cold air and wasting too much heat.

Draught-proofing a home consists of blocking up unwanted gaps that let cold air in and warm air out.

Saving warm air means you’ll use less energy to heat your home, so you'll save money as well as making your home snug and pleasant.
