Slimline Double Glazing by Ventrolla
Following on from our recent article about UK households’ reduced energy use, the lack of energy efficiency through Britain’s housing stock is a hot topic, particularly in the run up to May’s general election. With the absence of a long-term commitment from our government it is left to us homeowners to take the bull by the horns.
With rising energy bills it is essential that our homes are at their most energy efficient, and with the innovative draught proofing system provided by Ventrolla, it really couldn’t be easier. Around 20% of a homes’ heat is lost through badly insulated windows, so considering home improvements with Ventrolla should be the first step.
There are several ways to reduce the amount of heat lost, firstly, by having a draught proofing system in place. This will improve the efficiency of your windows by up to 30%, and when fitted to doors and windows will save the typical household between £15 and £55 a year^.
Secondly, you could upgrade to Double Glazed sashes, which can be made-to-order and fitted into your existing box frames without disruption or the need to redecorate.
However, if your property is within a Conservation area, or indeed is a Listed property, then Secondary Glazing may be worth considering. Good-quality secondary glazing is discreet and effective. Its benefits, which include reduced heat loss, also include minimised sound intrusion, especially when low-emissivity glass is used.
