Upgrade your home's energy efficiency by draughtproofing your single-glazed windows. This upgrade focuses on optimising your home's insulation by sealing gaps and cracks around your windows, preventing cold drafts from entering and warm air from escaping. By improving the insulation of your windows, you can enjoy a more comfortable indoor environment and potentially reduce your energy consumption.

When should you consider this?

  • If you have single-glazed windows that allow drafts and cold air to enter your home.
  • If you notice high energy bills due to heat loss through your windows.
  • If you're looking to improve the overall comfort and energy efficiency of your home.

Frequently asked questions:

  • How does draughtproofing work? Draughtproofing works by blocking gaps and openings around windows where cold air could enter and warm air could escape. This helps to maintain a more stable indoor temperature and reduce the need for excessive heating.
  • How does controlled ventilation differ from draughts? Controlled ventilation allows fresh air in when needed, helping to reduce condensation and dampness. Draughts, on the other hand, are uncontrolled and lead to excessive heat loss. Draught-proofing addresses these uncontrolled gaps and helps you retain warmth indoors.
  • How much can I save by draught-proofing my home? Draught-proofing around windows and doors could save you approximately £50 per year, depending on the size of your home. If you also draught-proof your open chimney when not in use, you could save around £70 per year.
  • Is draught-proofing suitable for DIY or professional installation? Draught-proofing costs vary based on the extent of work needed. DIY draught-proofing is more budget-friendly, while professional installation costs around £250-£300 for an entire house. DIY is suitable for those comfortable with simple tasks, while professional installation is recommended for older homes or those needing specific expertise.
