Through fitting draught excluders to the gaps around your doors and windows, you will be able to keep the warm air in and cold air out, all while saving your fuel bills and helping to keep your home warmer. You’ll find that self-adhesive foam strips of draught excluder are inexpensive and easy to fix in place. They’re ideal for using on your casement windows and interior doors. Be careful not to stretch the strips when fitting them. This will decrease their effectivity.
Here are our two simple steps on applying draught excluders:
1) . Use a damp cloth and clean all dirt and any loose paint from your window frame.
2) . Fist check that the window frame is now dry, then peel off the backing paper from the self-adhesive foam draught excluder, a little bit at a time. You can then press it onto the outside of the window frame, where the opening casement window will press against it when it’s closed. You should aim to cut the ends of each length at a 45-degree angle in order to form a neat joint at each corner. Close the window the press the strip firmly in place.
