Window Energy Ratings: The Warmseal of Quality

Posted on by

Nowadays we live in a world that is much more conscious of the environment and how our actions can have a negative impact on it, and over the years we have seen the introduction of various different policies and standards so that we might reduce that impact. Window Energy Ratings (WER) are in place for a simple reason;

Determine how energy efficient your windows are and whether they meet the energy standards.

Since its implication by the British Fenestration Rating Council the WER has proven to be a useful gauge for people replacing their old doors and windows. Windows from 10 to 15 years ago are less likely to be energy efficient, so the ratings system will help people to choose higher quality modern windows.

The chart is coloured like a rainbow and goes from A to G, A being the highest and G being the lowest in terms of energy effeciency. All windows manufactured now must achieve a C rating at minimum in order to comply with Building Regulations, giving people three ratings from which to distinguish and choose from. It’s a simple but effective system that is easy to identify and recognise. Anyone looking to change their windows, then, needs to ensure that their manufacturer of choice is using this ratings system and complying with its standards. The standards in question should also be a good indicator to any potential customers about the overall quality of the manufacturers in question.

Warmseal meets these standards and exceeds expectations with its products. In fact, the company’s products are officially rated as the most energy efficient windows to be manufactured in the North East region, with all of its windows achieving A Rated +10, the highest possible rating.

A Rated windows are the best option to take when fitting new windows for various reasons, one of the most attractive being that they save you money. The more energy efficient a window is, the more substantial the savings on your bills; you can save around £130 a year on average, which leads into longer term savings provided that all of your windows are made to this standard. A Rated +10 windows are also built to last as well as conserve energy, to the point that they will effectively pay for themselves whilst saving you money.

How did Warmseal’s windows achieve an A Rated +10 in the first place? It all comes down to innovative design. Warmseal’s windows are made with an outer frame containing five chambers and PVCu thermal inserts in order to guarantee ultimate efficiency as well as ultimate performance. They make for a good choice in more ways than one; the environmentally conscious amongst us can rest assured that Warmseal’s PVCu inserts are also made from 100% recyclable materials and to the highest standards possible.

A Warmseal window is the way to go; seal in the heat to keep you warm and at no extra cost.
