I already knew that when it comes to heating, New Zealand houses are badly built and badly positioned.
But this was also said by The Herald on Sunday enlisted Energy Efficiency and Conservation Authority technical adviser Andrew Smith.
He added: "In the average NZ home, all the drafts add up to a one-metre hole in your wall. In older homes, that would be more like a 5m hole."
OMG! That's a big hole, the 1 metre one, let alone the 5 metre one - that's HUGE!
Also - did you know that 25% of heat loss in your home occurs through the windows?
You can slow the heat loss and eliminate the cold drafts by using draft excluders or draft snakes or draft stoppers. They are natural, affordable and ecologically made.
These thermal insulators are packed with rice that mould themselves into their surroundings: doors or windows.
The draft stopper is an efficient thermal barrier.
You will feel the difference immediately.
It saves energy and money and keeps you warm and healthy during this cold winter.
