ENERGY EFFICIENT GLAZING & DOORS

All properties lose heat through their windows. But energy-efficient glazing keeps your home  warmer and quieter as well as reducing your energy bills.

The benefits of energy-efficient windows

  • Smaller energy bills.
  • A smaller carbon footprint.
  • A more comfortable home: energy-efficient glazing reduces heat loss through windows and means fewer draughts and cold spots.
  • Peace and quiet: as well as keeping the heat in, energy efficient-windows insulate your home against outside noise.
  • Reduced condensation: energy-efficient glazing reduces condensation build-up on the inside of windows.
  • costs and savings for energy-efficient glazing will be different for each home and each window, depending on the size, material and installer.
  • Double glazing should last for 20 years or more.

Energy-efficient doors

Like any other part of the home, doors can be insulated and draught-proofed to prevent heat from escaping. Buildings regulations state that installing a new door requires approval from the relevant buildings control body, and new external doors now generally contain integrated insulation to reduce heat loss and comply with the regulations.

A properly fitted new external door should include an effective draught-proofing system. Existing doors can be improved by fitting draught-proofing strips around the seals and the letterbox. Fitting draught-proofing to the doors and windows will save the typical household between £10 to £50 a year.
