How Upgrading Your Windows and Doors Can Boost Home Heat Retention This Winter

Keeping Your Home Warm And Energy-Efficient This Winter

Winter is on its way! Keeping your home warm and energy-efficient during the winter is about personal comfort and saving money, protecting the environment, and promoting overall well-being. Upgrading your windows and doors is a wise investment that pays off in a multitude of ways which this blog will explore:

Should I Upgrade To Energy-Efficient Windows?

Purchasing new energy-efficient windows can significantly reduce your heating and cooling bills, thus lowering your carbon footprint. Energy-efficient windows are designed to keep heat inside during winter. They prevent the cosy hot air indoors from escaping out of the house, and heat out during summer. SCI Windows uses the very latest glazing technology and PlatinumNRG double-glazed PVCu casement windows to achieve the ‘greenest’ rating of A+9 for energy efficiency. More information about our energy ratings can be found here.

Single, Double or Triple-Glazed Windows?

As you may already know, the number of panes of glass within your window affects the heat retention of your house. If you currently have single-glazed windows you’ll often find that your house loses heat quickly and struggles to hold it. This means that it can take a while to get to a comfortable temperature, due to draughts from your windows.

Double-glazed windows improve this by having two panes of glass with a layer of argon gas separating the two. Argon being a poor conductor of heat meaning the warm air doesn’t get transferred out of the home. Triple-glazed windows work under the same principle as double-glazed, having an additional layer of argon and another pane of glass. The added panes of glass also act as a sound barrier, reducing the amount of noise that comes into your home or escapes from it. Please have a look at the range of windows we offer and reduce your energy bill in the cold months ahead!

Can Doors Also Help Retain Heat In My House This Winter?

For sure! Our upgraded doors come with brilliant insulation properties, creating a thermal barrier between the indoor and outdoor environments. Doors with superior insulation properties minimize energy loss through gaps, cracks, and drafts. This means that less of the heated air generated by your heating system escapes, leading to a more energy-efficient home. Less heat escaping through the doors requires smaller usage from your home’s heating system to maintain a comfortable temperature. This results in lower heating bills and cost savings over time. While the upfront cost of upgrading doors may seem significant, the long-term savings on heating bills and potential heating system maintenance and repair costs can make it a financially wise investment. Have a look into what doors we offer and find the right one for you, saving you money this winter.
