Did you know your windows and doors could help you save money on your energy bills? With prices of energy rising dramatically, homeowners are looking for alternatives and fixes to reduce their spending on energy. Here are our tips on things to consider for your home to help you and your family save on electric and gas bills.
Ways to Reduce your Electric and Gas Bill
Modern windows do a great job of insulating your home. Naturally, double glazing is a must, as the two layers of glass help to trap in heat far better than older, single-pane windows. In addition, the materials used to create the frames are designed to not conduct as much heat, henceforth meaning your home retains the heat inside instead of it leaking out through your window fittings.
For windows installed with A-rated double glazing, a semi-detached, gas-heated home could save as much as £145 and 335Kg of Co2 a year. Investing in your home’s windows could really benefit your home’s heat retention (in a fantastic new style too!) and save you money for many years to come.
Our latest in doors do a very good job of insulating your home. Say goodbye to draughty hallways, as they’re expertly sealed by our team of fitters to keep the cold outside, where it belongs.
If you are thinking about installing Bi-folds, Patio or French doors, do not be concerned about heat loss due to the large glass area. All our doors do not compromise on insulation so you can enjoy both a great view of your garden without losing the heat in your home. With the added benefit of strengthened glass, these fantastic large paned windows will reflect heat back into the room efficiently helping to keep your home warm.
Installing draft-proof doors can save a typical household up to £45 a year, so replacing your current doors is another step in the right direction to reducing your energy bills now and in the long term as well.
Shutters and Blinds
It could also be worth considering adding blinds to your home. A blind made of heavy materials (such as a black-out blinds) can really help keep warmth in, and sealed shutters can make an impact on reducing drafts in the house. Whilst the impact on energy bills is likely far less than a brand new installation, it is a worthwhile investment.
