With the cost of living on the rise, people are looking for ways of saving money on energy while keeping warm throughout autumn and into the winter months. Little do they know that something as simple as investing in A-rated double-glazed windows and insulated doors can cut energy costs by at least £195 per year.

How can you tell if a window or door is leaking energy?

Aside from a noticeably cooler home, there are many telltale signs of worn-out uPVC windows and composite doors, such as:

  1. Cracks or warping – if uPVC windows or composite doors are cracked or warped, energy will almost always escape from your home. The severity of the damage will determine whether you can get it fixed or if you’ll need to replace it entirely.
  2. Sealant erosion – a slight whistling coming from your window or door could mean the sealant has worn away, letting cooler air inside your home.
  3. Single glazing – if your uPVC windows aren’t double glazed and composite doors not properly insulated, they will lose heat twice as fast, and it will cost twice as much to keep your home warm. Upgrading your windows and doors will vastly reduce your energy loss, helping you save more money when it comes to paying the bills!

By upgrading your uPVC windows and composite doors to A-rated, properly insulated options, you can help you save on more than just energy costs. Our windows and doors keep outside noise to a minimum and are Secured by Design approved to improve the security of your home. Not only is this a great choice for the environment but also for your home and your savings!
