Save money with your choice of windows

Having double glazing installed is one of the key ways of achieving cheaper energy bills. Double glazing not only reduces your energy bills but also provides a more comfortable and quieter home with fewer condensation problems and heightened security.

As much as 50% of the heat lost from your home is through windows. This could cost you
hundreds of extra dollars every year in heating and cooling bills. Double glazing is extremely
energy efficient, cutting these heat losses by up to 50%, reducing the need for extra heating and, in turn, helping the environment.

Did you know that by choosing the right double glazing combinations in the makeup of your windows can reduce heating and cooling bills even further. By using argon gas between the layers up to 40% energy saving can be achieved.

With energy and greenhouse gas reduction being the future of housing it only seems practical to seriously consider double glazing your windows and doors. The benefits not only affect costs saving while you’re living in the home but also add value to the resale price.

Double glazing adds approximate 30% additional cost of single glazed windows. In the long term, heating and cooling costs are significantly reduced, saving you plenty of money and reducing your carbon footprint.
