About this deal

The first stage of draughtproofing is to identify any areas where air is entering or leaving your home. The best way to do this is with an infrared thermal imaging camera which will clearly show cold areas where you have cold air entering the house.

g. one that’s not insulated at all or only insulated at the joist (loft floor) level and not up to the rafters (a warm loft). You can prevent it gluing the door shut by applying a liberal coating of Vaseline to the moving surface. You may also have holes in your ceilings for spotlights, and holes in the walls for the light switches. It’s important to distinguish between draught-proofing and insulating your loft hatch as these are not the same thing.

These compress to form an airtight seal which is tolerant to movement in the door relative to the frame without stopping it from closing. The bottom edge has had a brush seal installed but the second image shows that this is less effective.

Draught-proofing the loft hatch at the same time will also help ensure you gain the maximum savings on your energy bills, too and helps to insulate your home. There's a frame around the opening that the hatch shuts up against (same as door stop around door frames) on all four sides, approx. It’s super important to always keep safety in mind when doing any work inside or around your loft space. Low Energy Supermarket accepts no responsibility for any electrical item purchased being installed and any item is fitted at owners risk. If the loft hatch is hinged, you will need to put either the compression seal or the foam strip on the outside perimeter on the top of loft hatch.As the name suggests, these are inflatable bags which can be fitted up the chimney before being pumped full of air.

They may not all be visible, but every pipe and cable that enters your home passes through a wall, floor or ceiling at some point. This right stipulates that for most products purchased online you have a legal right to change your mind within 14 days and receive a refund under the consumer contracts regulations 2013.Without completely protecting the loft area, including the hatch, you may find that warm air funnels through the hatch space, thus making the rest of your insulation relatively ineffective. I am trying to replace a loft door the maximum available opening is 695mmx880mm there is enough room to have a 50mm architrave type trim around this opening. Occasionally goods are damaged during transit, therefore you may need to confirm the packaging/goods were intact (prior to collection) to the courier as part of the refund process.
