Draught: it must be eliminated

Just in case, there are draught strips, which are effective and highly useful. Quality construction in Hertfordshire is capable of performing this task within a matter of hours!
Regardless of how good an insulation of your home is, it will have to be replaced or at least improved. New insulation will do the same thing as draught elimination but on a completely different level. It is far more efficient and it brings a lot of other advantages. This type of insulation must be implemented into the walls, on the roof and floors.
Improvement of heat sources and water-related items
All heat sources, such are boilers, radiators or etc. will have to be replaced with new ones, more efficient ones. Obviously, this saves energy, reduces bills and make your home eco-friendly one.
The same thing applies to all items which use water in your home. Water-efficient toilets for instance use 3-5 times less water than conventional ones. For this type of remodeling, they are essential.
