Selcting double glazing for your home is a major decision. It's an important, lasting investment in your property. You'll want to get it right. Fuel costs are rising. You need to create a comfortable home environment that remains affordable to heat.
If the windows in your home consist of a single glazed or older double glazed units, replacing them with energy efficient windows will not only save you money, it could reduce the energy you need to heat or cool your home by 20%
Average fuel savings from single glazed to energy efficient 'C' windows on the average house are:
* £157.00 per year for Gas
* £236.00 per year for Electricity
This equates to a reduced carbon footprint of 0.31 tonnes per year, which equates to a 19% saving. This almost equals the 20% reduction that EST asks consumers to target as part of their commitment to reduce carbon emissions.
Our energy efficient windows let you:
Science suggest man-made emisions play a major role in global warming and, in turn, climate change. Home energy alone accounts for 27% of UK carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions which contribute to climate change. By making buildings more energy efficient with windows, we can reduce energy use and prevent energy waste.
In the UK alone, fitting better windows could reduce emissions by almost 5 million tonnes. The Glass and Glazing Federation calculates that if all UK replacement windows installed were Band C rated instead of the minimum building regulation specification, each household could save the equivalent energy to make 34,000 cups of tea!
Understanding Window Energy RatingsThe British Fenestration Rating Council's Domestic Window Energy Rating Scheme provides a way to compare the energy performance of windows. Windows that achieve a 'C' rating or higher can carry the "Energy Savings Recommended" tag.
All our windows achieve a minimum of a 'C' rated or better energy efficiency, so you can be sure that your windows are the best that money can buy.
As well as longer, maintenance free life, every energy efficient window we install is fully guaranteed against failure for 10 years.
