Be prepared for winter with energy efficient windows from Croft
By installing energy efficient windows you could improve the energy efficiency of your home, save money on heating bills and become more environmentally friendly.
As the dark nights draw in and the temperature drops we all look at ways to keep our homes warm. One of the main ways this can be achieved is by installing energy efficient windows. Approximately 26% of all domestic energy heat loss is through windows. By installing energy efficient windows you could improve the energy efficiency of your home, save money on heating bills and become more environmentally friendly.
Energy efficient windows are windows that help to contain and conserve heat within the home, keeping out wind and rain, resisting condensation and yet allowing natural “free” energy – the warmth of the sun – to heat the home.
An easy to follow energy rating scheme indicates how efficient a window is. Graded from A to G, it is like the one used for appliances such as fridges. ‘A’ rated windows are tested by the British Fenestration Rating Council (BFRC) on three factors: air leakage, solar gain and heat loss. Croft offers ‘A’ rated energy efficient windows and the company is endorsed by the BRFC and Fensa.
The potential energy and cost savings of energy efficient windows can be seen by the fact that using a C rated or above window reduces the amount of energy lost through windows by up to 90%. That is enough energy to run 9 televisions for a year, drive over 600 miles in a car or make 34,000 cups of tea. In monetary terms, ‘A’ rated windows provide savings of up to 28% or £468 per year.
It therefore makes sense to consider replacing your windows before the winter kicks in. As the leading installer of energy efficient windows throughout Lancashire, Croft offers a complimentary home visit where they can provide a quotation for replacement windows. The company recycles all the windows it removes to use as secondary components in new windows, meaning none are sent to landfill. Until the end of November, Croft are offering a 20% reduction on all window orders placed.
