Improving your home’s energy efficiency is a major priority for many UK homeowners. With heating bills at an all time high, people are looking for the best ways to enhance their home’s heat retention capacity to save money and create a warmer living area. One of the best ways to do this is with energy efficient windows.
Improving energy efficiency with replacement windows
According to UK government statistics, 18% of a property’s heat is lost through its windows. This is a huge proportion of the overall heat loss from a building. It is also something that can easily be reduced. With high performance double or triple glazing, you can significantly reduce heat loss through your windows and improve your home’s heat retention capacity.
Replacement windows are a great way of improving your home’s thermal performance. Modern glazing fitted with low-E glass is designed to regulate the sun’s rays. It does this by reducing the level of UV rays penetrating the building interior while at the same time helping to trap any warm air generated inside the home. This means that you won’t need to use your heating as often, helping you to make noticeable savings on your energy bills.
