ENERGY EFFICIENCY AND ENERGY RATED WINDOWS
Better energy efficiency in our homes has become increasingly important. With rising energy prices it is more important than ever to reduce our heating costs.
Simple measures to decrease the heat loss from your home can be the most cost effective way of saving energy. It is estimated that 20% of a home's energy is lost through inefficient windows and doors.
The energy saving trust estimates that installing B-rated double glazed windows could save you £165 a year on your energy bills, although this could soon increase with rising energy costs.

Windows can now be energy rated by the British Fenestration Rating Council in a similar way to a washing machine or fridge.
All our windows have a minimum 'C' rating to comply with building regulations from October 2010. However should you choose to increase your energy savings the we can fit 'A' or 'B' rated windows on request. Please ask us for further information.
