With winter chills upon us, keeping warm is a top priority for everyone. Even more so when it comes to our homes, so how do we keep the warmth in and the winter out?

That’s a very good question. Drop by your local Mitre 10 and ask about quick and easy ways to winter-proof your place.

When a home has obvious wind draughts, the heating and cooling systems will work harder using a greater amount of energy to maintain inside temperatures.

Even if your home is well-insulated, cool air can leak in and out through the gaps and cracks. Air leakage accounts for 15-25 per cent of winter heat loss in buildings. Sealing your home against air leaks is one of the simplest upgrades you can undertake to increase your comfort while reducing energy bills.

Using Cowdroy Weather seals to seal your home is an easy and an affordable way of reducing your energy bills. It’s the perfect option for home owners and even renters

One of the most common ways for draughts to get into your home is through gaps in the bottom of your door. Cowdroy’s CM3 range is the perfect option to easily seal up any bottom of door gaps.

Cowdroy weather seals and gap fillers can be fitted to jambs, faces or edges of most windows and doors, and Cowdroy’s products cater for a range of door and window needs – including basic hinged doors, security doors, roller doors and automatic doors.

The range comes in a variety of colour options to ensure there is a product that suits the look of your home.

Install a Cowdroy weatherseal to suit your front or back entry door and minimise the effects of external elements such as wind, rain, light and sound.

Getting your home winter-proofed is as easy as dropping by your local Mitre 10 for the right advice and the right products.
