Draughts are similar to ventilation, in that both let fresh air into your home. Good ventilation helps reduce condensation and damp and can help cool down a hot house. Draughts, on the other hand, are uncontrolled – they let too much cold air in and waste too much heat.
Draught proofing stops warm air from escaping your home in winter and hot air from entering in summer, saving you money and making your home more comfortable.
When assessing your home’s insulation requirements, we can review draught issues, pinpoint problem areas, and install custom draught-proofing solutions around your home that will prevent unwanted hot and cold air from getting in.
Did you know it is actually cheaper to keep heating running on low, rather than turning it off and then cranking it up to heat a cold room?
To maximise savings even further…
Curtains, blinds and shutters act as a barrier to the transfer of heat and cold through your windows, especially if you don’t have double glazing. On sunny winter days, open your window coverings to let that energy in to warm up your home for free!
Cleaning and replacing filters on air-conditioners and split systems allows your unit to work more efficiently and can also lower your energy consumption.
