Energy Efficiency 

 

In these days of soaring energy costs the benefit of installing double glazed units are considerable. Some 15% of a home's heating can be lost through windows, choosing the latest energy efficient double glazing can save over 250 a year. All our windows comply with the latest building regulations and comprise 32mm double glazed units with Pilkington K glass.

Pilkington K Glass forms the inner pane of the double glazed unit.  The coating reflects heat back into the room whilst also letting in free heat from the sun known as passive solar gain. Pilkington K Glass helps windows to achieve high Window Energy Ratings to demonstrate compliance with energy saving Building Regulations Part L.
