Stopping Draughts at Their Source: The Ultimate Guide to a Warmer, Quieter Home

Updated: Jun 4

Draught-proofing your home is not just about comfort; it's about efficiency. By taking proactive measures, you can significantly reduce energy costs, enhance the quietness of your interior, and increase the overall security of your abode. While there are numerous steps you can take, starting with double-glazed windows is both effective and transformative. Here’s how to fortify your home against unwelcome drafts.


Roof Insulation: Your First Line of Defense


The roof is a critical area where heat can escape, making roof insulation a key player in the battle against draughts. Opting for a minimum of 6.0 insulation batts in your roof space can dramatically retain heat within your home, reducing the reliance on heating systems and thereby saving on energy bills. But while roof insulation is a formidable barrier against temperature fluctuations, it's only part of the solution.


Wall Insulation: Sealing the Envelope


Insulating your walls further seals your home from the elements, acting as a cozy sweater that keeps the warmth in and the cold out. When walls are properly insulated, they work in tandem with your roof insulation to create a more consistent indoor temperature, enhancing comfort and reducing energy consumption. However, even the best-insulated walls and roof can't combat draughts if your windows are lacking.


Double-Glazed Windows: The Ultimate Draught-Proofing Solution


Here’s where double-glazed windows from Spartan Double Glazing truly shine.
