Draughts are never a good sign. They allow in cold air to your home and let the warm air, from the heating you’re spending a ton of money on, escape. Preventing draughts and therefore saving money is one of the simplest tasks you can do to stay warm this winter.
Checking for draughts is easy and doesn’t have to cost you a penny. Walk around your house or building, focusing on external windows and doors, carrying a candle, when the flame is flickering, you’ve found your draught. Be careful though, not all airflow is bad. Constant ventilation is needed to ensure fresh air is flowing throughout the building.
