In winter, a surprising amount of heat can be lost through the gaps leading to outside. We clearly all recognise this, especially on a windy night when we have all at some time or other felt a draught catching across out necks, backs or legs. It is like a continuous wave of cold air that can be quite irritating and, no matter how much heat there is being expelled into your home to keep you warm, it can make you feel cold, on edge and uncomfortable.
Making sure fuel efficiency is not only cost effective, but low for the sake of the environment is an important issue to all home owners. However, rather than spending large amounts of money on attempts to lower the loss of heat, the solution can be simple. Effective draft proofing can be achievable with products such as our Hairy worm door brush strips.
Just as the open edging around a door frame, letter box and garage door can make a massive difference to the comfort and warmth of a place in the cold months, so too can the right choice of seals and draft excluders. However, not only do you want something that is proven to be effective, but you want a product that is made professionally. For example, if you purchase a woven brush seal, you want something that isn’t going to break and shed fibres every time you open or close your doors or windows, therefore reducing its effectiveness each time you move it. At George Culley, we provide only the best high quality wool piles that will last.
Door Brush Strips
Our woven brush pile seals are crafted with the understanding that using natural materials such as wool to trap warm air and provide comfort to those tucked away on the heated side of these materials, is highly effective. We provide a choice of self-adhesive strips to fit whatever size you need. For example, whatever size letterbox you have, we have the right cover for you. When cold air keeps pulling up your letter box making it seem like someone is constantly knocking at your door, these wool pile draught excluders are ideal.
To provide even more comfort and heat in the areas used more frequently, especially in the evenings such as in the living room or bedrooms, we also recommend the use of a wool pile draught excluder on your inner doors. This allows you to higher up your central heating specifically in the areas you need it most, reducing heating costs further, and increasing your heating fuel efficiency.
Rubber strips are also an ideal choice for around doors and window frames. You can also purchase keyhole seals for larger key slots such as a mortice lock where a substantial amount of heat can be lost. Extractor fans, open chimneys that are not in use, and other openings where pipes and other home facilities such as a washer and dryer are fitted, can also cause our homes to lose more heat. Using a choice of foam seals, rubber fittings and The Hairy Worm wool pile seals, can make all of the difference. However, to ensure you choose the right fittings for each of your needs, you may need to ask the professional team at George Culley. We not only provide these draft excluders and seals, but we manufacture them. We also have a huge choice available, based on our knowledge of the fittings and fixtures needed to help keep a property warm especially in cold, damp and windy weather.
