Saving money and energy by filling the gaps between your floorboards

DraughtEx not only helps keep your house warm, but can also help you to save money and use less energy.

Unfilled floorboard gaps in a room measuring just 12 x 12ft can add up to a combined exposed area of 3.87 square foot- similar to a small window being left open all day, every day.

By using Draughtex to not only fill gaps between floorboards but also gaps between floorboards and skirting boards to prevent unwanted breezes from entering the home, it is estimated by The Energy Saving Trust that you can save up to £40 per room per year on heating costs. A 12 x 12ft room would on average need only two rolls of DraughtEx to insulate the floorboards. Therefore by investing in DraughtEx, you will not only feel the benefit in terms of temperature, but should also see a positive effect on your energy bills which allows you to amortise the cost of the floor filler within approximately one year.

Lower energy usage also means a lower carbon footprint, and each insulated 12 x 12ft room is also estimated to reduce CO2 contribution by around 150kg per year.

Having sold well over twenty thousand rolls of DraughtEx so far, our floorboard gap sealers are currently saving our customers a combined £400,000 per year as well as preventing over 1500 tons of CO2 emissions every year. This energy saving is enough to offset 370 cars worth of CO2 emissions over the same period!

So with winter approaching, now is the time to invest in DraughtEx. DraughtEx will not only make your house feel warmer, but also help keep energy bills as low as possible through the coldest time of the year. Let us help you to save money and energy.
