Improving the energy efficiency of your windows can make your property quieter, warmer, and reduce your energy costs.
Double-glazed windows have two sheets of glass with a gap in between, creating an insulating barrier to keep heat in. Triple-glazed windows have three sheets of glass, but aren’t always better than double-glazed windows. To choose the most energy-efficient window select the one with the best BFRC rating.
Energy-efficient windows come in a range of frame materials and styles. Performance criteria vary according to the following:
- How well they stop heat from passing through the window.
- How much sunlight travels through the glass.
- How little air can leak in or out around the window.
Below is a table showing how much money you could save on your energy bills by installing double glazing:
|Energy rating||Detached||Semi-detached||Mid terrace||Bungalow||Flat|
|A rated||£120 - £160||£80 - £110||£65 - £90||£55 - £75||£40 - £60|
|B rated||£110 - £145||£75 - £100||£60 - £80||£50 - £70||£40 - £55|
|C rated||£110 - £135||£75 - £95||£60 - £75||£50 - £65||£40 - £50|
