For thousands of years, we have plundered our blue planet and extracted all the resources we need, and it is only in the past two decades that we have begun to take action to reduce the negative impact we are having on the environment. If you are a UK homeowner who is looking to reduce your energy consumption, installing double glazed replacement windows and doors will certainly result in lower energy use.
Energy Saving in Harrow and Pinner
At The Window Centre, we have been helping Harrow and Pinner homeowners save energy with our state of the art range of double glazed windows and doors since 1993, and while it might be a considerable investment to replace all the windows and doors, it is something you do only the once, and when you consider the savings to be had, door and window replacement is a long-term investment that pays big dividends. Some homeowners are saving as much as 40% on their fuel bills, and with a large family residence, that adds up to a considerable sum, not to mention the eco-friendly benefits that double glazing brings.
Functionality with Style
Replacing all the windows and doors presents a golden opportunity to transform your property, and we happen to have an in-house design team to help you explore the many options. The latest generation of uPVC windows and doors come in a range of colours, and with a natural looking timber grain, our products visually enhance character properties, while providing an effective thermal barrier which greatly reduces the heat loss via the glazed surfaces. You might want to add some living space, and we specialise in double glazed porches, which provides yet another barrier between your interior and the harsh British climate.
Long Term Savings
Most UK homeowners dread the winter months, as the energy bills are always at the top end of the scale, yet once you have replaced the windows and doors with double glazed units, you can enjoy many years of reduced energy costs. If you were to add up the savings over five years, this would already be a considerable amount, and our windows are designed and built with longevity in mind, so you can expect to enjoy decades of trouble free use, and, of course, ongoing energy saving.
Thermal Glass Coatings
We only use the very best glass, which happens to be Planitherm Eco-Pane Energy Glass, which is a very effective thermal barrier, and with two sheets of glass that are separated by an award winning space bar, your valuable heat will find it very hard to escape. The cavity is filled with inert Argon gas, which aids the insulation process by preventing heat transfer, and with much less heat being transferred through the glass, your heating system doesn’t have to work as hard, thus saving energy.
