Unfortunately, the United Kingdom is one of the worst countries in Europe when it comes to having energy-efficient homes. Hence, heat is being wasted. However, energy-saving hints and tips can help to save you money in the long run as well as combat the current energy crisis.
Improve Energy Efficiency
Single-glazed windows, whether they are casement windows, a bow window, a glass porch, or a fanlight window, are considered to be inefficient for homes in the UK. During the winter, they lose warm air. In the summer, they struggle to retain cool air. Hence, people with single-glazed windows may have to spend money on fans or air-conditioning units as well as heaters and electric blankets. These also use more energy and electricity, causing an increase in both energy prices and household bills.
It is important to invest in uPVC, double-glazed, A-rated windows sooner rather than later. Why not upgrade your bow windows? Or maybe your bathroom windows? Take a look at our windows page on our website for some inspiration.
