I know how you feel I keep finding draughts here too! Are the draughts coming in the windows? If so you might need the hinges replaced. Get someone reputable, the last guy that did mine charged €40 a window & made one worse!! I have that window sealed with duck tape until I can afford a new window. I hope you get it sorted.

Its so annoying, Im like a woman on a mission now :o0 I never thought about the hinges....I just dont know exactly where its coming in!

Lol hopefully it's something less trouble than the hinges! With the wind being so strong at the moment draughts are a lot worse I'm being driven demented with them too hopefully when the wind dies down again they'll improve :-)

Aldi had draught excluders for sale a few weeks ago, you might be lucky & find some left. It's like a roll of foamy tape, very simple to use. Cut to measure & stick it around the edges of doors & windows. I have used it on just one particularly draughty window & it has worked very well. With this windy weather I am getting draughts from all angles, time to get the excluder tape out again!
