Professional Draught Proofing
Keep your winter warmth in and the summer heat out.
Did you know that in many homes, up to 50% of heating and cooling energy is lost due to uncontrolled draught, making your home difficult to heat and cool and costing you a fortune in energy bills.
Draught Proofing is the most important step you can take to improving the thermal efficiency of your home, reducing your energy use and improving your comfort.
What is draught?
Draught is uncontrolled air movement in a building.
The biggest challenge with air leakage is that the problem is virtually invisible until you receive your high energy bill, but even minor gaps can add up and have a major cost over time.
By professionally draught proofing your home from unwanted air leaks, you can take control of your home’s heating, cooling, ventilation and zoning – making your home more comfortable and protecting you from exorbitant energy bills.
What solutions are available?
Draught proofing solutions come in many forms, depending on the source of air leakage. They include architectural quality perimeter seals for doors and windows, ceiling exhaust fan seals, fireplace treatments, and solutions for other unsealed gaps and cracks including wall vents, architraves and skirting boards.
ecoMaster’s philosophy is based upon architectural quality, aesthetics, longevity and functionality. Where the market has failed to supply to these standards, we have developed our own innovative solutions, delivering outstanding results
I’m delighted with the results from ecoMaster’s draught proofing. Naturally I had expectations, but was amazed at the immediate and visible impact. I feel warmer, I’m running the heating on average 1-2 degrees lower, the house it retaining its warmth better and the heating doesn’t reboot nearly as often as it did. I’m now looking forward to seeing this reflected in our heating bill.
Often, sealing underneath a door isn’t adequate in preventing unwanted air leakage in your home, as draught enters via any number of areas including around windows, architraves, skirting boards, through wall vents, open exhaust fans and chimneys and zoning options.
