Free Draft proofing
Is your home drafty? Does it feel colder when you walk into the hallway or move to a different room in the house? If you have answered yes to any of these questions then your home could drastically benefit from having draft proofing measures to prevent any air entering or escaping through small holes in your external walls and windows. The main areas where cold air can enter your home is through holes and cracks around the window frames and door, installing a simple draft excluder to the bottom of your front door or a brush draft excluder on your letter box would make a huge difference in keeping warm air in your home!
