Description

Compressible drought strips (bout a tenner from a DIY shed) fitted into the recess will make it airtight. The cold (blue) areas around the sides and top of the door in the first image are caused by air leakage. With these hygienic seals, you have the option to specify the colour of the seal, with a completely white seal, white backing with a black seal, or brown backing with a brown seal. Roofs are designed to let cool air flow in through the sides so that the warm air that rises upwards through your ceiling is collected and got rid of. If the loft is insulated at the ceiling joist level, then insulating your loft hatch should confer a substantial benefit.

Each of these openings in the building fabric is a potential source of draughts if not properly sealed. If your Wizz Air flight has been delayed or cancelled in the past six years AND the airline refused to refund you for additional costs incurred, such as replacement flights, you may now be able to get your money back. The recent trend for removing carpets to expose the floorboards has exacerbated this effect because cold air can flow unrestricted through the gaps between the boards. You can prevent it gluing the door shut by applying a liberal coating of Vaseline to the moving surface. If you’re lucky this only causes heat loss in the winter and brings attic heat into the home in the summer.Good use of draft proofing could reduce your air permeability to around 8-10 metres cubed per hour which is a good low-cost way of reducing you heating bills.

It doesn’t save you a lot of money, but it is a quick, inexpensive and relatively easy job and will attribute some way towards energy savings in your household.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.

My loft hatch and doors to the eves have the same just mineral wool insulation in a black bag stapled to the doors. If you have a hinged loft hatch that doesn’t rest on a post then you’ll need to apply the foam strips to both the hatch surround and inside of the hatch frame so that the two strips meet and squash together a tiny bit. For those without the luxury of a thermal camera, you can rely on the sense of touch to identify cold areas (or contact us about a thermal survey).

The unobtrusive design coupled with sleek, contemporary styling makes the door an ideal match for modern decors. cut off some normal insulation, pop it into a black bin bag and staple it to the hatch - jobs a goodun! Whilst it is a **** poor job, seals are needed anyway as even a millimetre gap will still let air bleed. Start by cutting a thick piece of styrofoam or wool insulation to size, if you don't know the size of your hatch, you will need to measure it before undergoing more steps.

Once you have done this, you should then put an equivalent strip on the interior of the hatch frame. If we’re not installing something like a Fakro loft ladder that comes with a fully-insulated hatch and frame then we build one bespoke. Millions of people would have to double their incomes to escape financial hardship, says anti-poverty charity Joseph Rowntree Foundation in a new report published today. A smouldering incense stick producing a steady stream of smoke can also be useful for detecting gentle air currents.
