The Energy Crisis: Save Your Money

Over the course of the year, the UK is expected to continue suffering from the energy crisis.

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.

Doors are also vital. A composite front or back door not only looks the part but can improve your home’s energy efficiency too. We have a wide range of composite doors at St Helens Windows, so give us a call today to arrange a free, no-obligation quotation. Click here to see more about our composite doors.
