South Seeds handymen can fit a range of energy saving measures that can save you money on your energy bills and significantly improve your comfort levels at home. We have a team of three handymen, experienced in fitting energy saving measures in Victorian sandstone tenements and can get to jobs within a 15 minute drive from our office, on Victoria Road.

How can we save you energy?

Draughtproofing your doors, windows and floors, fitting airtight glazing film or mounting a curtain rail which supports the weight of thermal curtains, are just a few of the installs which will allow you to maintain the same temperature at home by either turning your heating down or switching it on less.

Victorian properties can be draughty and filling the gaps in your property will keep your home warmer for longer, by eliminating cold draughts and stopping hot air escaping. Our handymen use hardwearing draughtproofing strips, that are designed specifically for wooden frames and are available in two colours to suit almost every door and window. We can draughtproof wooden floors and skirting boards. We also have solutions for draughts around PVC windows. Tell us where you have a draught and we can fix it.

Most Victorian properties have fireplaces connected to chimneys. We can stop all the warm air being sucked out of your property, through the fireplace, while still maintaining proper ventilation, by installing a specially designed chimney balloon. Once a chimney balloon is fitted, it is invisible and can be easily removed and reused.

Energy saving installs allow you to turn your heating down and save money.

How much does the service cost?

Our energy saving handyman prices start from as little as £30.00. Have a look at our current price list. Prices can vary depending on access to fitting and the number of installs. Simply give us a call on 0141 636 3959, if you want to find out about how to get a quote.

How do I book?

Just get in touch with us either by email: info@southseeds.org or call: 0141 636 3959. You are welcome to drop it to see us too, at the Queen’s Park end of Victoria Road (open weekdays 9.30am to 4.30pm). We are happy to discuss particular handyman jobs and you can pick up copies of our ‘How to’ factsheets, if you want to give it a go yourself.

Give it a go yourself

We have produced a number of ‘How to’ factsheets that can help you install energy saving measures yourself. The factsheets were created with Southside Victorian tenements in mind, check out the resources section of our website.
