Draughtproofing and energy efficiency

The Letterplate plays a role in increasing the energy efficiency of your projects, making a direct contribution to draught proofing. Elimination of letter box draughts reduces the amount of heating required to maintain a comfortable temperature within a house. As many houses have their thermostat in the hallway, the space most affected by letter box draughts, a more even hallway temperature means the thermostat won’t prompt the boiler to heat up unnecessarily.

The VI Letterplate is the ideal partner to standard home draughtproofing measures and energy monitoring systems.
