Crystal Windows and Conservatories Help Savers with UK Heating Bills
As household fuel bills rise at an unprecedented rate with anticipated costs to reach £1500 per household next year*, homeowners need to think carefully about the best ways to improve home energy efficiency and considering new energy efficient windows is a good place to start.
The average home loses 20% of its heat through the windows** whilst for homes with traditional single-glazed sash windows, this figure will be much higher. Double glazing cuts heat loss in half and choosing energy rated windows can save as much as £240 a year and 720kg of carbon dioxide.
Glazing and fenestration expert Tony Wooderson of leading North-West firm Crystal Windows and Conservatories commented, “The British Fenestration Rating Council has set out clear guidelines to help buyers choose the right product so it’s important that customers start looking at the ratings on windows in the same way they do with other household appliances.
“We don’t offer any PVC-u windows which have a rating below B – on a scale of A to G – which means customers can buy with confidence, and the initial investment pays dividends as ultimately you get your money back and more with what you save on your heating costs.
“Also, since the HIPs (Home Information Packs) were introduced for home buyers last year, it is now essential that customers can produce an Energy Performance Certificate for the property and the windows are a big part of that.”
With this in mind, Crystal use the leading energy-efficient glass, which can reduce the amount of heat lost through the windows by 90% as well as allowing more heat through the windows, which is known as solar gain which will make your property even warmer with no extra fuel charge.
