If you haven’t caught on to the trend of energy efficiency in the home, you’re missing out. Perhaps one of the most talked about subjects in the news, energy efficiency is one of the first steps you can take to save the planet and it starts at home.
Investing in energy-efficient windows is one of the best decisions you can make for your home. There are numerous ways having energy-efficient windows benefits and transforms your property.
Old Windows Aren’t Energy Efficient
Are the windows in your home outdated and old? Ageing windows simply do not cope well in harsh weather conditions, the temperatures of changing seasons, and keeping your home energy efficient. The majority of old windows have single glazing and single glazed windows can significantly affect the energy efficiency of your home.
If the windows in your home are very old, it’s likely they are letting in plenty of cold air during the winter and warm air during the summer. Every bit of heat your home loses costs you significantly on your energy bills and it’s a waste of money. Energy efficiency in your home reduces heat loss.
Energy Efficient Windows Make Your Home Warmer
Do you find that the current windows in your home are draughty, rattling, rotting, or damaged? All these problems can significantly impact the energy efficiency of your home. Windows that aren’t efficient cause you to turn up the heating in your home significantly, just to keep warm.
By having our double-glazed windows installed in your home, you will notice an immediate difference in the comfort of your home interior. There will be no more draughts, your windows won’t rattle, and you will see your heating bills reduce.
Energy Efficient Windows Reduce Your Energy Bills
As we’ve already touched on, having energy efficient windows installed in your property will help to significantly reduce your energy bills. A typical property can lose up to £2,800 worth of energy over a decade and around 18% of this is lost through the windows. So, upgrading to energy-efficient windows is a win-win as not only do they give your property kerb appeal, but they also reduce your energy bills.
Don’t put up with energy bills that fluctuate month to month as the weather does. You can be in control of the thermostat and enjoy comfortable temperatures in your home all year round – whatever the weather is doing outside – with our double-glazed windows. The windows we sell and install at South Coast Home Improvements will help drive down the cost of your household energy bills.
Lower Your Carbon Footprint with Double Glazed Windows
In today’s Green Age, everyone wants to lower their carbon footprint. And this means doing everything you can to lower the energy usage in your home, making your daily living far more beneficial for the environment.
In addition to replacing your windows with double-glazed and energy-efficient alternatives, you should also consider checking your boiler and replacing your old appliances to help further reduce your carbon footprint.
Enhance Your Home Security with Our Windows
While the main purpose of any window is to let more natural light into your home, it should also be to protect your property against intrusion. If you are a homeowner, enhancing the security of your property should be one of the top priorities on your to-do list.
Did you know that the majority of property burglaries are carried out because of insecure windows? Installing our energy-efficient windows is one of the best ways to enhance your home security. All our windows are double-glazed and made with your security in mind, so come with high-quality locking systems and resilient window frames. If you would like to talk with us about how you can improve your home security, our experts would be more than happy to help.
Reduce UV Damage Around Your Home
Another advantage of energy-efficient windows in your home is a significant reduction in UV damage. When your home’s windows are not energy efficient, they let in harmful UV rays throughout the day, causing your furniture, books, and furnishings to fade quickly. By installing energy efficient windows with UV protective coatings, you can reduce light damage in your home by up to 75%!
Raise the Value of Your Home
Did you know that having energy efficient windows installed in your property won’t just transform the energy-efficient of your home, but it will also raise the value? Potential buyers are always looking for properties with great security and energy-efficiency. So, if your home offers that, it will be more valuable.
Increased Home Comfort
At the end of a long day, most of us look forward to returning home and relaxing in the comfort of our homes. However, if your windows are not energy efficient, it’s likely you go home and shiver throughout the evening as you experience draughty windows, noisy rattles, and problems with condensation. None of these factors increase your comfort.
However, by installing energy-efficient windows in your home, you can enjoy increase comfort any time you’re at home. Whether it’s snowing outside, raining like mad, or it has been a lovely warm day, our energy-efficient windows will keep your home comfortable all year round.
Reduce Noise Pollution with Our Windows
Energy efficient windows that are double or triple glazed are ideal for reducing the noise pollution from outside. Not only do our windows insulate your home from Britain’s fluctuating weather conditions, they also insulate your home against external noise. This is a significant benefit of energy efficient windows for many people, particularly if you live in a busy area or right by a main road.
What Makes Our Windows Energy Efficient?
The windows we sell and install, here at South Coast Home Improvements, are energy efficient thanks to the high-quality double glazing. Secondary glazing is two panes of glass with a gap between, filled with gas. This creates an insulating barrier that helps keep the heat in.
Our energy-efficient windows are available in a variety of frame materials, colours, and styles. So, whatever you are looking for, you are sure to find! And if you’re not sure what you’re looking for, there is no need to worry as our experts will be more than happy to help. Just get in touch today and we will answer any questions you may have.
What is the Most Energy Efficient Glazing?
Double glazing is the most energy efficient window glass you can buy as it is low emissivity (Low-E), which means it lets in light, but reduces the amount of heat that can escape. If you’re looking for the best glass to buy for your windows, Low-E glazing is the best option.
