Draught Proof your home with Exceed

Exceed - we fix windows & doors

Hi Neighbours,
Did you know that living in a cold house in winter can affect your health?
If house temperatures fall below 16°C, the risk of respiratory illness increases. This is because cold houses are also usually damp, which can lead to respiratory symptoms.

One of the simplest steps toward a warm home is to stop draughts and keep the heat inside your home.

If you want to learn how to minimize the risks or how to identify draughts on your windows and doors, read our blog post or give us a call on 0800 25 25 00
