Guide to Draft-Proofing

Why Should You Draft-proof Your Home?

Save Money
It can be expensive to heat a home in Nova Scotia’s climate. Draft proofing a house to reduce air leakage is often the least expensive way of achieving significant savings on your heating bill.


Increase Comfort
A thorough job of caulking and weather-stripping will reduce cold drafts and make your home more comfortable.


Save Energy
Approximately 60% of Nova Scotia’s annual residential energy use goes towards heating our homes. Much of that energy can be saved. Retrofitting your home will help save our valuable energy resources, and will cost less than producing new energy.
