Lower Those Energy Costs With Energy Efficient Windows & Doors

Invest in energy efficient windows and doors to cut your energy costs

We’ve never known a time like it before. Food and drink prices are up. Petrol prices are up. And most concerning if you’re a homeowner, your energy bills are going through the roof. 

The raising of the price cap at the start of this month to £1971 (it was previously £1277, a 54% rise) has given some households no other choice but to prioritise heating over eating, or vice-versa. 

In October, that price cap is set to increase again, with us looking at a figure of around £2600. 

Cheaper energy deals are non-existent at present, so switching isn’t an option. 

What is an option though, and will make a difference, is getting energy efficient windows and doors installed. 

Let us inform you why they are so important to help you fight against energy.

Energy Efficient Windows

Poorly insulating windows can be responsible for heat loss, with it readily escaping through its dated glazing and frames. 

How can you tell if your windows are losing heat? Get right close to them to see if you can feel any type of draught and check for any moisture or mould on your windows, along with cracks in the sealant around them. 

Window products like our Extreme UPVC windows have an A+ energy rating as standard, which will hugely restrict heat loss and help you to save every year.

Energy Efficient Doors

Old front and rear doors could also be culpable for heat loss. Carry out the same tests suggested for your windows to identify any heat loss issues. 

In a push to make homes more energy efficient, the minimum allowed U-value for a replacement door is 1.8 W/m². You want a door with a low U-value as it signifies that a door offers a high standard of insulation. 

All our replacement doors meet this minimum standard and have impressively low U-values, so you can also anticipate that they will save you a great deal of cash during their long lifespan.
