Saving Energy With Draught Proofing Measures

Posted by Rick on October 2 2009 (energy efficiency, Energy Saving)

Cold draughts are common place in many homes and are caused by exposed gaps between the inside and outside of your home. These gaps allow for valuable energy to escape and leave some areas of the home feeling very uncomfortable. Fortunately solving draught problems can be achieved cheaply and easily.

Draught proofing measures work by blocking or filling the gaps that exist within your home. These gaps are are usually found beneath door ways and window areas. This is usually because they have either been fitted poorly or draught protectors have not been put in place.

Draught proofing comes in many different forms including rubber, brushes and foam but for the most comprehensive advice it is worth visiting or calling the Draught Proofing Association. They will be able to advise you on the types of stops you will need for your home.

Installing draught proofing is considered a basic energy saving method as it helps reduce heat loss and according to the Energy Saving Trust can save around £25 a year on energy bills. Draught proofing measures can often be self installed which means they are extremely cheap measures to introduce.
