How warm will your home be this winter?

Door Man from Waimak Window & Door Repairs

Keeping cosy depends on a variety of factors and every little bit helps.

Windows are a major source of heat loss. Decent drapes and curtains are worth their weight in gold.

Also, check the seals around your windows, as rubber shrinks and leaves noticeable gaps.

How about the top of the windows? Over time the friction stays wear out meaning the window no longer sits snug in the frame letting out valuable heat and cold air in.

Fortunately it's a minor job to replace both the stays and the seals to help fortify your home's armour.

For any queries, or other ways we can help, please get in touch with Jim

Poll: What do you think of CCTV on private homes?

Kylie Klein Nixon Reporter from Homed

I'm writing a story about CCTV security cameras on homes, what's the best system, how to install them, and whether or not they're a useful deterrent.
I wondered what you thought about private security cameras. Are they good for the neighbourhood? Or a sign troubled communities?
If you've got a strong opinion about them, drop me a line and let me know what you think.
