SNUG is a Transition Town Lewes enterprise, providing draught proofing services and workshops across East Sussex. Whether you want to draught proof your home yourself, or want an expert to do it, we’re here to help.

 


 

Draught Busters wanted to help grow our Snug social enterprise!

Snug run hands-on, practical draught proofing workshops to show residents how to make their homes cosier, cheaper to heat and more fuel efficient. We also offer a full home draught proofing service, where we install Secondary Magnetic Glazing and high quality draught proofing for windows, doors, floorboards and chimneys.

Snug is now looking for energy efficiency and DIY enthusiasts to help grow our social enterprise. We are particularly looking for people with great DIY skills who have a passion for working with people and a passion for the environment. Full training will be given.

Why draught-proof your home?

Did you know that you could be losing 30% of the heat in your home through draughts alone? With at least 18% of heat loss from windows!

 

Effective draught proofing can:

Substantially reduce the energy and heat lost through windows and doors

Reduce your fuel bills and make your home more fuel efficient

Create a cosier and warmer home at low cost

Full draught proofing can save the average home around £55 per year. Turning down the thermostat in a draught free home could save a further £65 per year. (Source: Energy Saving Trust)
