With this talk recently at the Big Six energy firms increasing their prices on average by 9.1%, it has thrown the spotlight back on how we can make our homes more energy efficient.
Simply, this means using less energy – whether that is gas or electricity – to heat our homes, as well as retaining this heat for as long as possible. On one hand, this sounds quite easy to do and there are small things that we can in our everyday lives to do this but, longer term there needs to be investment in our properties to make this a viable option.
One popular energy efficient improvement is double glazing, a feature many Glasgow properties benefit from. But if your home or business still has single glazed windows (whether it is all the windows or just one or two), then now is the time to look at replacing those windows.
First and foremost in terms of benefits is the amount you could save each year on fuel bills. Many of our customers do tell us that they notice an almost instant change in how warm their house feels; on average, according to figures from various sources including consumer organisation ‘Which?’, a three-bedroomed house would save £170 a year on their heating bill. And with double glazing on Glasgow properties lasting 20 years or more, it soon mounts up to a considerable sum.
Other benefits include;
uPVC windows last for many years and require very little maintenance and it has been around now for many years. We suggest if your double glazing at your Glasgow property if 20 years old (or more), then you can contact us for an assessment of their energy efficiency.
