If you would like to reduce your carbon footprint, effective home insulation is essential and as a majority of the surface area of the average home is glazed, double glazed replacement windows are the obvious choice. The heat loss through a single pane of glass is considerable and with some effective roof and wall insulation, that only leaves the glazed areas to insulate and our bespoke double-glazed units come in a range of styles and colours, retaining the character of the property. The Window Centre has been replacing windows and doors for more than 20 years and we’ve grown and developed alongside the industry, adopting new technology to improve our products – a development that is ongoing.
We all owe it to ourselves to adopt green practices at home and replacing your windows and doors is a very effective way of reducing heat loss, while bringing an even, warmth to every room in the house. No longer will that window seat be always empty in the winter and with made to measure patio or French doors, you can bring a lot of natural light into the home. When making the investment to replace your doors and windows, it should be regarded as a long-term gain, in terms of the fuel savings that are made, and with very long warranties on all our products, your investment will provide dividends for many years.
Delaying the Burn
As the heat lost through the glazed areas is dramatically reduced, the temperature drop takes much longer, and as the thermostat controls the boiler burn, you’ll hear that click and whoosh a lot less frequently. In some cases, your boiler will only burn for half the time it used to, as the double glazing brings optimum heat retention. It is always a good idea to have the central heating system serviced in the autumn, as this will ensure a lean burn, saving you even more money.
It isn’t just the fuel saving that double glazed windows afford, with improved home security as all units have state of the art locking systems and the average burglar would not attempt a forced entry and would simply look for an easier target. Aside from the security features, double glazing brings a new level of sound insulation, eliminating exterior noise and maintaining a calm and serene ambience throughout the home. Many of our customers are shocked to discover just how quiet things become after the units are fitted and if you happen to live near a major road or railway line, double glazing is for you.
