Go Green with Great Windows

Go Green with Great WindowsWith energy bills rising and wages stagnating, everyone is looking at ways to keep costs down. One cost that has increased year on year is the cost of heating a home, so it makes sense to look at ways to keep the price of a basic need, warmth, as low as possible.

And while cost-cutting measures, like putting on another jumper might save you a few pennies in the short term, making a real investment could lead to savings for years to come.

Not only that, but installing some new windows can do more for your home than just a fresh lick of paint. It can transform the way that it looks to the outside world – and large windows that let in a lot of light can transform how your home looks on the inside, too.
It might even add a few bob on to the value of your home as well.

Minimum rating

BFRC Rating SystemAny eco-home needs a BFRC rating of at least a C or more, and windows that reach the C grade have a payback of five or six years (according to the Energy Savings Trust.)

For the best energy efficiency, windows should have an inert gas like krypton or argon sealed between the panes. The gas reduces the amount of heat that is let out of the building, which is important for keeping a home warm. Krypton is the most effective, but argon is the cheapest.

At Warmseal, we are experts at keeping costs down and aesthetics high. Our double glazed windows are BFRC A+ energy rated and British Standard accredited, making them an investment in energy efficiency and warmth.

On top of that, all of the windows we have on sale exceed existing Government environmental and energy efficiency requirements, so you can be sure that the product being installed in your home is of the highest quality.

Double whammy

We use an outer glass that has been designed to allow as much solar energy as possible to pass through the pane, while reflecting the warmth back into the room using a Low-E coated inner pane. Perfect for heating a room without much effort and cost.

We can offer a wide range of styles and colours from: white frames, windows in any colour, windows with a wood grain finish, bay windows and casements. On top of that selection, a customer can also pick and choose from a wide range of glass options.

One of the additional benefits of having thick, double glazed windows is that they are also great at keeping out noise. This is perfect if you live on or near a busy street and just want some peace and quiet in your own home.

And while going green is the subject matter, all of our double glazed windows are good to the environment. We take every step we can to eliminate unnecessary waste from its production and work with a recycling partner to make sure that all the materials that can be recycled are.
