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 :)

Fix our ROADS

Karl from Spotswood

Can anyone tell me when the NPDC is going “FIX OUR ROADS” Especially on the truck routes!
While driving around my little town, I notice streets with sections full of roadwork signs and cones, but there’s no apparent work being done so why are these road cones and signs left behind. Then there’s potholes with no signage or cones.
And can someone please let me know what is happening with the stadium?

Our gardens are getting smaller, so NZ Gardener wants to come up with some suggestions for edible crops that do well in pots and small spaces! Suggest the crops that have done well for you (ideally specify a variety) and tell other keen gardeners how you grew them, how they performed for you, and any practical advice you would pass on to ensure a great result with that crop, and any secret tips you are prepared to pass on! If your tip is used in the magazine, you'll receive a free copy... And of course the glory of being in New Zealand's favourite gardening magazine! Click on this link to send us your best tip!
