What is it?
Draught proofing is a method of blocking unwanted air gaps within a house. The most common set of draught proofing measures can be applied to doors, keyholes, letterboxes, windows and loft hatches.
How does it work?
If draughts are uncontrolled they can let too much cold air into the home and waste heat. Draught proofing blocks unwanted gaps that let cold air in and warm air out.
Draught proofing is one of the cheapest and most efficient ways to save energy and money in the home. Draught free homes are also more comfortable at lower temperatures.
According to the Energy Saving Trust, the potential annual savings in a typical three bedroom semi-detached house could be up to £55.
