Save Money by Weather Proofing your Home

Draught proofing is a great way to lower energy bill costs and keep the house warm throughout winter by defending the home from the elements.

The cost saving initiative is perfect for both warm and cool months as it maintains temperatures inside the home all-year round, reducing the need for heaters in winter and air conditioners in summer.

Bunnings National Hardware Buyer, John Campbell, provides his expert advice on keeping an efficient, clean and warm house this winter:

- Draught proofing can save money each year on your energy bills as your house will use much less energy and run more efficiently.

- Draught proofing is an inexpensive way to maintain temperatures inside the home across the cooler months as there is less need to use heaters. Bunnings stock a wide range of weatherproofing products; head in store to speak to an expert team member about which item is best suited for your home.

- Installing draught-proofs reduces cleaning time as leaves and other mess are prevented from entering the house through gaps in the doors and windows.

- Weather stripping can be easily completed as a D.I.Y. project, with no professional help required.

Bunnings suggests draught proofing the home at the beginning of autumn before cooler temperatures, wind and debris become more apparent.
