But some could be wasting money by neglecting gaps around windows, which can let warm air out and cold air in. James Elston, Director at Boiler Central, recommends an easy trick that not only keeps homes cost but also potentially saves households a lot of money each year. He said: "These hidden gaps let heat slip away without us noticing. Draft blocking tape is like our secret weapon - it seals these gaps and stops silent heat leaks. It's not just about what you can see. If not properly sealed, windows can be a major source of heat loss. "Draft blocking tape is a cost-effective way to strengthen your windows, ensuring your warmth stays inside and doesn't escape unnoticed. It's a protective shield for your home against heat loss and can help save hundreds of pounds a year." Windows are key in the effort to stay warm, and their thickness - or lack thereof - can significantly impact how well your home retains heat. But finding a solution to drafty windows does not have to cost a fortune, Mr Elston insists.
