Cowdroy weather seals to improve energy efficiency
Energy usage and sustainability is a growing concern in Australia According to Your Energy Savings with 40% of the energy used at home is for heating and cooling.
When it comes to designing a home or renovating an existing dwelling, incorporating ‘Passive Design’ helps maintain the interior temperature of a home using little or no mechanical heating and cooling.
The first step to Passive Design is weather sealing your home. This is done to prevent air from leaking in or out through gaps and cracks.
“According to Sustainable Living Guide, weather proofing your house is important as draughts can account for up to 25 per cent of heat loss from a home in winter,” says Cowdroy Australia national business manager Peter Doyle.
Cowdroy’s Weather Seal range combats air leakage and draughts and can be integrated into any design. They cater for a range of different needs like eliminating draughts, dust, rain, light and sound. Cowdroy Gap Filler is also a quick and easy option for filling gaps around door architraves and along skirting boards.
