Sealing your home and preventing unwanted draughts helps to save on your heating bills and get a warmer, more comfortable home. Now local charity Cumbria Action for Sustainability (CAfS) are offering free draught proofing to homes in the Eden area.
This service is available to tenants and home owners in Eden, free of charge if you meet one of these criteria:
- Over 60 year old and on a low income
- Under 60 and in receipt of a means tested benefit
- A member of the household has a disability or long term health issue

or write to: Cold to Cosy Homes Draught Proofing, Eden Housing Association, Blain House, Bridge Lane, Penrith , CA11 8QU
One of the experienced team will visit your home to assess it for draughts and give you advice on ways to save energy. A professional fitter will then visit your home at a pre-arranged date and time to install the specified draught-proofing products, which might include seals, brushes and draught strips for doors and windows, draught free letter box covers, keyhole covers, chimney balloons and other gadgets.
The draught proofing has been very popular with customers so far, one recently said:
"I'm really pleased with the draught proofing, the installer was very thorough and didn't leave any trace or mess. Already I can feel the difference around my ankles now the door has been draught proofed!"
