We all want to do our best to minimise our impact on the environment. By fitting high performance Upvc windows you are not only improving your thermal efficiency in the home, but can now also achieve lower environmental impact, by using recycled materials without compromising performance or aesthetic appeal.
Reduce, Re-use, Recycle are the guiding principles to minimise environmental impact. Our frames satisfy all three. We reduce the requirement for new Upvc therefore reducing oil consumption and carbon emissions. We recycle all our waste Upvc created during manufacturing processes.
All our products will meet exactly the same high performance criteria that you have come to expect from modern windows and conservatories. Our products can exceed all regulatory requirements for security, safety, durability, thermal and acoustic insulation.
Today's advanced performance Upvc windows and doors can deliver significant energy savings. As such they can play a positive role in making your home more sustainable by helping you to cut your carbon footprint, not to mention the price of your heating bills.The average UK home produces 6 tonnes of carbon dioxide every year. Multiply that nationally and you get a total of 83 million tonnes.
The installation of advanced performance windows, for example a 'C' rated window, will save about 852kg of CO2 per year, per property - fit an 'A' rated window and the carbon saving becomes even greater.
Based on current energy prices fitting a minimum performance 'E' rated window compared to an old single glazed window will cut the average cost of heat loss to around £75 per year from £188 per year - a potential saving of £113.
