Stop letting the air out with weather sealing upgrades

The Victorian Energy Upgrades (VEU) program provides rebates for various energy-saving measures, including weather sealing. Weather sealing, also known as draught proofing, involves sealing gaps and cracks around doors, windows, and other parts of a building to prevent air leaks. This can significantly improve the energy efficiency of a home by reducing the need for heating and cooling.

Exhaust Fan Seals: Installing seals or covers on exhaust fans that automatically close when the fan is not in use to prevent air leakage

Cooling Vent Covers: Sealing evaporative cooling vent covers to prevent air from escaping through cooling vents.

These weather seals help to create a more airtight indoor envelope, which enhances thermal comfort and reduces energy consumption. The VEU program offers rebates and incentives for these upgrades, making it more affordable for homeowners to improve their energy efficiency.
