A draughty door or window is, at best, a mild irritation. At worst, it can turn a warm, cosy night-in into an arctic adventure.
To add insult to injury, you’re paying for the privilege of having that icy breeze in your home – with even the slightest of draughts capable of adding between £10 and £50 to your annual heating bill.
Fortunately, there’s a simple remedy at hand. Draught-proofing is one of the easiest, cheapest and most efficient ways to stop heat energy escaping your home, and to cut your heating bill in the process.
How to draught proof a home
Draught-proofing works on a very simple premise – block the gaps that are letting cold air in (and warm air out) of the property.
Those gaps could be in all manner of places, around your electrical fittings or between suspended floorboards for instance – but most typically, your draught will be coming from doors or windows which don’t quite fit their frame.
Even if your doors are flush in their frame, you could still find a whistling breeze coming through the letterbox or even the keyhole. Isolating the problem is the first step to fixing it.
