Energy Saving Windows -
A Guide To Buying The Best and Most Energy Efficient Replacement Windows and Doors

Double Glazing and Secondary Glazing

Up to 20% of heat is lost through poorly insulated window frames and single glazed windows, so why not consider double glazing or secondary glazing in your home. It’s definitely worth thinking about it.This type of home improvement is affordable and you don’t necessarily have to replace all your windows at the same time although if you were in a position to do so, it would save you money if you were to have them installed at the same time, but there are other options.

If you can’t afford to replace all your windows then why not choose to replace the windows in the rooms that cost you most to heat, for example like your living room. By considering this as option you could still reduce heat loss through windows by half.

How double glazing works, is that air is trapped between two panes of glass, special inert gas is also an option, this creates an insulating barrier that reduces heat loss, noise and condensation, plus the benefit of cutting your heating bills by £80-£100 a year. Don’t be concerned that by replacing your windows that this will effect the look of your house. There are wide range of window styles and colours to actually enhance the look of your home but it is worth checking to ensure there are no restrictions due to age or location of your property, for example if your home was a listed building.

Other Products:

Looking for the energy saving recommended logo when choosing your windows, you can be sure they are the most energy efficient. Manufacturer’s window products are assessed on a rating of A-G, the assessment is based on the whole window and not just the glass or seals. These grades are issued from the British Fenestration Ratings Council.

If double glazing is not an option for you then there is always secondary double glazing, although not as good as double glazing it will still save money by cutting heat loss and draughts.

Energy Saving Recommended SchemeEnergy Saving Recommended Scheme

Currently manufacturers/organisations voluntarily submit their windows for energy-efficiency accreditation. This is now very important to the organisations as consumers are more aware of energy saving products and this is continuously increasing with many people so much more conscious of the financial and environmental benefits.The Energy Saving Trust supports the British Fenestration Rating Council’s (BFRC) domestic window energy rating scheme (WER) by accrediting any window rated ‘band-C’ or above, helping consumers to readily compare the energy efficiency of competing products using a recognisable mark/grade for everyone to understand.

The BFRC’s WER scheme is based on the whole window. The higher the BFRC rating indicates a more thermally efficient window. The window is given a rating of A-G BFRC bands of the window energy label. It is this band that provides the basis for energy saving recommended certification. So it’s very important for organisations to ensure their products are assessed and manufactured to the highest grade.

It is likely that the BFRC’s A-G bands will be incorporated into the revised Part L of the building regulations some time in 2006.
