The Importance of Being Energy Efficient

Energy efficient windows can result in huge savings for the average UK household.

Average yearly energy savings range from £44.88 for a double glazed house, up to £325 for an electrically heated house with single glazed windows. So replacing your windows with "A" rated energy efficient windows can save over £800 in 5 years, which could pay for a rather nice holiday - they undoubtably pay back your initial investment.

Not only will you save money with energy efficient windows, but there are also many other benefits. As well as keeping the heat in, energy efficient windows insulate your home against unwanted outside noise, giving you that extra bit of peace and quiet. Energy efficient glazing reduces heat loss through windows and means fewer draughts and cold spots and also reduces condensation build-up on the inside of windows, giving you a more comfortable home.

Reducing carbon emissions has never been more important, especially as the the UK Government have a Climate Change Bill that currently aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 60% by 2050. Therefore, if more people were to install Energy Efficient Windows, if we recycled more and produced less pollution and waste, it could make a significant difference to both climate change and the Earth's finite resources.

There are also other ways to help your household to be energy efficient. Insulating lofts, cavity walls, tanks and pipes, along with your energy efficient double glazed windows, can give also help to give you significant savings on your heating bills as well as further reducing CO2 emissions. Energy saving light bulbs are also a quick way to stop wasting energy and money.
