Chimney Sheep wool draught-proofing collection designed to keep homes warm in the winter
Chimney Sheep Ltd’s wool draught-proofing tools are perfect for keeping homes warm during cold winter days. The simple energy-saving measures will help consumers retrofit their homes easily, contributing to a reduction in energy bills and making homes more energy efficient. Covering all draught-proofing measures, the range includes door draught excluders, wool gap filler, door and window draught seal tape, and a rug. Each item will work alongside the company’s best-selling chimney draught excluder, the Chimney Sheep®, or can be used on its own. Rather than using synthetic materials, the sustainable draught-proofing range utilises the naturally insulating properties of wool to plug leaky gaps within a property and prevent draughts. Made from British wool, the draught-proofing products are sustainable and when disposed of, 100% compostable.
Using a range of draught-proofing measures in a property is a quick and simple way for consumers to save money on household energy bills. It is one of the most cost-effective ways to make a property more energy efficient with a small payback timeframe. A Chimney Sheep® can save the average household £125 per year whilst draught-proofing doors and windows can save £60 per year, according to the Energy Savings Trust. As well as saving money on heating bills, it makes a home feel warmer and reduces wind noise caused by draughts.
The new sustainable draught-proofing range from Chimney Sheep includes:
Chimney Sheep® chimney draught excluder
A Chimney Sheep® is a chimney draught excluder made of Herdwick wool. It is designed to be inserted into open chimney flues and can be removed as and when a fire is lit. The simple device works to reduce draughts by blocking 93% of airflow and allowing for sufficient ventilation. This helps to ensure households are heated efficiently saving consumers
over over 4% on their household energy bills. This equates to a saving of £125 for the average household based on the current Energy Price Guarantee of £2,500. The naturally occurring properties of Herdwick wool makes the Chimney Sheep® highly durable, breathable and malleable – perfect to plug the gap just above the fireplace. The product works to prevent warm air from escaping up the chimney and stopping cold air from coming in via other leaky parts of a building and the chimney when not in use, reducing the ‘stack effect’ phenomenon. Each product has a clamp and handle attached to it which makes it easy and convenient to insert and remove as needed.
Prices start from £18.00. They are available to buy from chimneysheep.co.uk
Door Draught Excluder
The Chimney Sheep door draught excluder works to stop draughts from entering indoors through the gap at the bottom of the door, acting as an effective barrier. Designed to fit most door frames, the door draught excluder is slightly bigger and more robust than the usual standard door draught excluders measuring 90cm x 30cm x 15cm. The weighted design allows the cushions to stay firmly in place, ensuring that they work effectively to help make a home more energy efficient. Each draught excluder is handmade at the Chimney Sheep factory in Cumbria and is filled with washed Herdwick
wool from the Lake District which also helps to insulate a room.
The Chimney Sheep door draught excluder is available in an organic cotton cover and a unique hessian cover made from recycled coffee sacks.
Prices for the door draught excluders start from £30.00. They are available to buy from chimneysheep.co.uk.
Wool Draught Seal Tape for Doors & Windows
The Chimney Sheep wool draught seal tape for doors and windows is a self-adhesive wool tape. It is designed to be placed over small gaps and cracks found in windows and doors that let cold air into a property. It will also prevent warm air from escaping a property. Consumers using this tape will make a home feel cosier, will make it more energy efficient and help to reduce energy bills. The tape is made of 100% British wool and is sold in 5m lengths.
The price for the draught seal tape is £7.50. It is available to buy from chimneysheep.co.uk.
Wool Gap Filler
The Chimney Sheep wool gap-filler is a sustainable alternative to traditional foam gap filler. It can be used to fill any gaps letting in draughts around a property. It works particularly well to insulate cavities, gaps and cracks around doors, windows, joists and roof frames. It can also help with sound insulation. Sold in 2m lengths and made of 100% moth-proof wool, the natural insulating properties of the fibres help to make homes feel warmer and more comfortable. It also helps to make a property more energy efficient which in turn reduces energy bills.
The price of the wool gap filler is £10.00. It is available to buy from chimneysheep.co.uk.
‘A useful bit of insulation’
The Chimney Sheep box of ‘A useful bit of insulation’ is a multi-use product that can be used to fill most gaps and cracks in a property letting in draughts. Made of 100% wool and 100% moth proof, the section of insulation can be cut to size as required. The insulation is also an effective sound insulation.
This insulation is available in 500g, 1kg and 2.5kg boxes.
Prices for the insulation start from £10.00. Boxes can be purchased from chimneysheep.co.uk
Made from a mix of Herdwick and Texel wool, the Chimney Sheep wool rug is a stylish way to stop draughts coming through cracks in floorboards. Wooden floors often have gaps and let in cold draughts. By placing this rug on top of the gaps, those draughts are stopped, helping to keep homes warmer and more energy efficient whilst adding an element of interior design to a room.
The rug is available in various sizes via chimneysheep.co.uk. Prices will start from £150.
