Energy usage and sustainability is a growing concern in Australia, with home energy consumption a significant contributor to greenhouse gas emissions. According to Your Energy Savings, on average across Australia, 40 per cent of the energy used at home is for heating and cooling.i

When it comes to designing a home or renovating an existing dwelling, incorporating 'Passive Design' is crucial. Passive Design helps to maintain the interior temperature of a home using little or no mechanical heating and cooling. There are a number of ways such as appropriate insulation and weather sealing that will use minimal energy - improving comfort and reducing energy bills.

The first step to Passive Design is weather sealing your home. This is done to prevent air from leaking in or out though gaps and cracks.

"According to Sustainable Living Guideii, 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 Peter Doyle, National Business Manager, Cowdroy Australia.

Cowdroy's Weather Seal range combats air leakage and draughts and can be integrated into any design - easily installed on to jambs, faces or edges of doors and windows. They cater for a range of different needs such as 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. See the below guidelines on how to weatherproof your home.
