All homes need some ventilation but the difference between ventilation and draughts is that ventilation is a flow of air that is controlled. Draughts are gusts of cold air where you don’t want them. Cold air flowing in from either the outside, or an unheated area of the house will cause you to feel cold and turn your heating up. This in turn costs you more money and is bad for the environment. Where do the draughts come from? Tim is an expert in sustainable building methods and energy efficiency in residential homes and writes on the subject for magazines and national newspapers. He is the author of The Sustainable Building Bible, Simply Sustainable Homes and Anaerobic Digestion - Making Biogas - Making Energy: The Earthscan Expert Guide. Moving in 2002 to a small-holding in South Wales, providing as it did access to a wider range of natural resources, fanned his enthusiasm for sustainability. He went on to install renewable technology at the property, including biomass boiler and wind turbine.Some reviewers did note that the strips did not hold on garage or external doors though, so it’s best to keep them for indoor use. You could also hang a pair of thermal curtains, which will make a big difference, particularly if your front door opens straight into your living area. Cold may also come in through gaps around the edges of your door so you may need to fill them with foam or a seal, or also consider purchasing a letterbox draught excluder too. Finally, if you really want to go all out, you can get a keyhole cover such as this STORMGUARD one. These are metal discs designed to drop over the hole and keep out the cold.
