Do you feel a breeze around your external doors? Or perhaps there are cold spots throughout your home? Draughts can chill down your home from a myriad of spots, from gaps under doors, to letterboxes and even keyholes!
While some ventilation in a home is necessary to keep condensation and damp at bay, too much can leave you with an uncomfortably cold home, especially noticeable in the Autumn and Winter months.
The great news is that creating a draught-proof home is easy with our draught proof doors and insulation advice. Our expert team can guide you on draught-proofing your Essex home and help you identify key areas that need remedying – from filling in gaps around pipes to insulating your loft hatch.
Why Draught Proof Your Doors?
The most obvious reason to invest in draught proof doors is to keep the cold out, but the less obvious reason is to keep the heat in.
Why heat the air inside your home if it simply escapes through cracks and crevices? By reducing heat loss, your home will stay warmer, allowing you to turn down your household heating. And because less heating = less money on your gas or electricity bill, draught proofing your home really does pay for itself in as little as a few years.
In fact, according to energysavingtrust.org.uk, the average semi-detached property in England, Scotland or Wales that uses gas heating can save £20 per year just by draught proofing doors and windows.
