By installing energy efficient windows you can significantly improve the energy efficiency of your home, reduce heating bills and become more environmentally friendly, lowering your carbon footprint.
Now the dark nights are here and the temperature drops we all look at ways to keep our homes nice and warm. One of the main ways this can be achieved is by upgrading to energy efficient windows. Around 26% of all domestic energy heat loss is through the windows. By installing energy efficient windows you can significantly improve the energy efficiency of your home and save money on your heating bills.
Energy efficient windows are windows that help to contain and conserve heat within the home, reducing drafts, resisting condensation and allowing natural “free” energy – the warmth of the sun – to heat your home.
An easy to follow energy rating scheme indicates how energy efficient a window is. Graded from A to G, it is similar to the one used for home appliances such as fridges and freezers. ‘A’ rated windows are tested by the British Fenestration Rating Council (BFRC) on three factors: air leakage, solar gain and heat loss. Warmseal offers a full range of the highest quality ‘A’ rated energy efficient windows to keep your home warm and secure.
The potential energy and cost savings of energy efficient windows can be seen by the fact that using a C rated or above window reduces the amount of energy lost through windows by up to 90%. That is enough energy to run 9 televisions for a year, drive over 600 miles in a car or make 34,000 cups of tea. In monetary terms, ‘A’ rated windows provide on average savings of up to 28% or £468 per year on your home energy bills.
Installing energy efficient windows can give a significant impact to your home throughout the cold winter months.
