How to check for draughty windows and save on your heating costs this winter ;)

Exceed - we fix windows & doors

Hi Neighbour!

This month’s Tip from Exceed - As the cooler weather arrives it’s a good time to check that all your windows and doors seal tightly. If the friction stays or catches have become loose your windows won’t seal effectively, causing draughts and letting warm air out.

Depending on which kiwi power company you are with, winter power bill figures can double if not triple over the colder months. Before you know it, you are asking yourself how you have consumed so much electricity to the point where you can no longer afford your electric bill.

Before you panic, Exceed is here with a quick tip that could help you identify draughty windows and save on your electric bill this winter season. Jump onto our website blog to read more:

Hope this helps you :)

Lace up for summer fun

The Team from Resene ColorShop New Plymouth

Who wouldn’t want to show up to play in flash shoes like these? Customise a fresh pair of footwear or fancy up some old favourites – while covering up scuff marks – with nothing more than a few Resene testpots, artist’s brushes and a bit of good quality masking tape.

If your kids are little, you can help mask off any of the harder parts – such as around the soles – that you want to keep paint off of and remove laces, if there are any. You can even use this idea to makeover adult shoes that never get worn because the colour doesn’t go with anything.

Make the most of this weekend with this easy step by step project idea from Resene.
