Keeping your home cosy and warm during the winter is very important. However, if there are draughts in your home, it means that warm air is getting out and cold air is getting inside. There are various ways to draught proof your home, starting with finding where the cold air is coming from – it could be unwanted gaps in your windows, letterboxes, chimneys, skirting boards, cat flaps or cracks in the walls.

In addition to making sure these areas are sealed to cover any draughts, other areas can also be problematic, including the gaps in between floorboards and the bottom of doors which should be covered with a draught excluder.

There are other methods to winter-proof your home, for example, putting up curtains can help insulate rooms, keeping the house warm during the winter and cool during the summer. Having proper insulation in your loft and wall cavities is very important as some of the heat in a house is lost through the walls and loft. Additionally, to make sure your boiler will always be working, we would recommend having a professional servicing your boiler annually – nobody wants a freezing shower on a winter day.

At the Handy Squad, we provide many other services to help you keep warm and save energy, such as fixing faulty radiators, repairing leaks and undertaking an annual energy audit in order to ensure all of your electrical appliances are working fine.
