As you know, blocking draughts is one of the simplest ways you can keep your home cosy in winter. AND it’ll keep your heating bills down too.
But did you know there are 5 other surprising benefits of draught proofing?
1. It’ll stop unwanted visitors from entering!
Gaps and cracks allow for all sorts of critters like bugs, insects and even mice, to creep into your home – not just draughts!
Sealing any big gaps around plumbing or doors is a sure-fire way of keeping unwanted guests out.
2. Reduce traffic noise or the sound of noisy neighbours
Sealing your windows and doors using weather strips will reduce sounds coming in from outside, helping to keep your home nice and tranquil.
3. Stop windows rattling
Weather seals on window frames will help reduce the chance of windows rattling in the wind or when cars pass by. David from Brunswick discovered this surprising benefit when he draught proofed his home.
4. It’ll work in summer too
Draught-proofing doesn’t just keep the cold out in winter. It keeps the heat out in summer too. By stopping the hot summer air from leaking into your home– you’ll feel cool in summer and reduce your dependence on expensive air conditioning.
5. It’s the biggest bang for your buck
Most households typically spend up to half of their total energy bills on heating and cooling. Because blocking draughts mostly involves inexpensive materials – even when you get someone in to install higher end products for you – draught-proofing is the single most cost-effective thing you can do to your home.
