What are the benefits of installing this Letterbox Draught Excluder?
A bit like with our chimneys, having an open letter box is like having a small open window, drawing warm air out of your home and allowing cold air in. We can plug our chimneys with a Chimney Sheep® so why not draught-proof our letterboxes too with a letterbox draught excluder? Doing so will:
- Save you money – whilst your letterbox is often overlooked as a serious source of concern when it comes to draughts, if you are keeping a close eye on your energy bills, every little helps!
- Make your home more energy-efficient – installing a letterbox draught excluder into your home will make your home more eco-friendly by preventing warm air from escaping and cold air from invading. This means your heating system will no longer need to work as hard to reach the temperature which you desire.
- Ensure your home is warm, cosy and dry– stopping warm air from escaping and cold air getting in will help to keep your home toasty and dry. Rather important on those cold and rainy winter evenings in front of the TV!
Each of our letterbox draught excluders is made in the UK by Stormguard who is one of the UK’s leading manufacturers of draught excluders for doors and windows, so you know it is going to be good!

How else can I draught-proof my house?
You may have guessed but we are rather big fans of draught-proofing and there is good reason. IT WORKS whilst being easy, cost-effective and a pretty quick way for you to feel warmer.
If you have a house with an open chimney we would always suggest draught-proofing your chimney first. It is often the biggest source of heat loss in homes with the Building Research Establishment (BRE) stating that 80 cubic metres of air is lost out of a chimney per hour. The best way to draught-proof your chimney is with one of our removable chimney draught excluders, a Chimney Sheep®.
Your house may have lots of other draught sources too, so how do you deal with those? Well, you can track down all those pesky draughts with a Smoke Pencil. The most common though are windows and doors which can be easily fixed. Take a look at some of our other draught-proofing measures like our keyhole covers and door draught excluders which will ensure you keep your warm air in your home where it belongs.
