What people say about us

Some comments received about the DraughtBusters from people we have visited:

“I want to thank you for your time last Thursday; the group found the talk very interesting and positive.

This is something that BCAG is capable of undertaking and contributes positively to the community.

We, therefore, plan to look into establishing a DraughtBuster Bracknell Hub and will now seek to establish a community entity and secure funding. We will be in touch soon to ask for your help with training… Many thanks once again” – Russel, 2023

“We have been impressed by the simplicity and inclusiveness of your project and the generosity you have shown in helping other groups set up Draught Busters” – Energy Support group Halesworth Area Sustainable Hub

Brilliant info

Hi, I just wanted to say your site/blog, is just brilliant. We bought a house just over a year ago, which was built in the mid 70’s, needed modernising, the location and what it offered us as a family in terms of space and features etc is why we went for it..However its fairly energy inefficient. I am an avid DIY\’er and a great one too (I like to think so 🙂 ) and have been looking for info for some time now, on how I can fill in gaps between block work and floor joist. Having read your write up, it has not only confirmed what I was thinking of doing, but added some extra measure for improvement. I have also taken the time to read up most of your other articles and have found the dot and dab piece to be very informative too, especially as I have completely gutted our bathroom and one of the external walls does not look very good, hence was advised to dot and dab plasterboard to it and in my mind I was questioning how energy efficient that would be.. None the less, your site is now firmly saved to my favourites on my laptop, ipad and phone 🙂 Thank you once again! – 2019

“Thank you for the service provided by Tony through DraughtBusters and the Transition Town Reading scheme, which CAB referred me for.

What a great project.

I was truly amazed by the results of what might seem small remedies.

I had quite a few window and ceiling ‘gaps’ filled and a letterbox cover fitted – can not believe how much warmer my hallway is.

This work at my house has inspired me to really think about sustainability and energy, and the planet environment factors, plus saving money on energy bills.

It also gave me an incredible sense of feeling supported and helped, so thank you Reading CA and Draughtbusters.” – 2020
