How to Save Money on Your Energy Bills in 2023
With energy prices continuing to rise, many households are looking for ways to save money on their energy bills. One of the most effective ways to reduce your energy costs is by investing in a brand-new set of energy-efficient windows. Not only will they enhance the value and look of your property, but they will also provide you with some significant savings in the long term. In this article, we will explore how upgrading your windows (and also your doors!) can help you save money on your energy bills in 2023.
Modern-day windows are incredibly energy efficient. They retain heat during winter and reduce the heat gained in summer. All the windows we supply have an ‘A’ Energy Rating as standard. They also feature a 28mm double-glazed unit, an argon gas fill, and warm edge spacer technology. This enhances their overall energy efficiency and reduces the frequency with which you need to utilise your central heating, ultimately resulting in cost savings for you.
Double and Triple Glazing
Doubled or triple glazing are popular options for the vast majority of energy-efficient windows. Double glazing involves installing two individual panes of glass separated by a layer of argon gas. The gas acts as an insulation layer, preventing heat loss and also sound from travelling through – another great plus!
As you would imagine, triple glazing consists of three individual layers of glass separated by argon gas. Due to the additional layers of insulation, they are much more effective but will come at a higher cost.
The two most popular material options when focusing on energy efficiency will be PVCu and Aluminium. By taking advantage of the properties of these materials, manufacturers have been able to enhance the efficiency of their products. For instance, aluminium and PVCu frames are popular options for their durability as well as insulation properties; helping to reduce heat loss and improve overall energy efficiency. Both materials are strong, reliable, long-lasting, and low maintenance. They perfectly complement many homes with their discreet and unobtrusive appearance.
Proper window installation is crucial for ensuring maximum energy efficiency. Poorly installed windows can cause air leaks, reducing the effectiveness of your energy-efficient windows. It is important to hire a professional installer to ensure that you have no problems, going forwards. believe it or not, there is a knack to installing effcetive windows and doors!
