Householders

An Energy Ratings imageSaving energy and reducing carbon emissions have been high in the agenda for several years. The Government is committed to reducing our impact on the environment and is encouraging householders and businesses to be as efficient as possible. If we can stop heat escaping from our homes, offices, hotels and other buildings, then we can reduce the need to heat our properties which in turn reduces carbon emissions thus leading to less global warming.

Energy efficient glazing can reduce the heat loss through your windows by half. Our aluminium frames all have a unique polyamide thermal barrier incorporated in the profile, which vastly reduces the transfer of heat from the inside to the outside.

When fitted with high performance double glazing, our windows can achieve an “A” under the Window Energy Rating scheme. Visit the Energy Saving Trust to see how much you could save on your fuel bills.

The benefits of double-glazing

Smaller energy bills:
Replacing all single glazed windows with energy efficient glazing could save you around £135 per year on your energy bills.

A smaller carbon footprint:
By using less fuel, you’ll generate less of the carbon dioxide (CO2) that leads to global warming.

A more comfortable home:
Energy efficient glazing reduces heat loss through windows and means fewer draughts and cold spots.

Peace and quiet:
As well as keeping the heat in, energy efficient windows insulate your home against unwanted outside noise.

Reduced condensation:
Energy efficient glazing reduces condensation build-up on the inside of windows.

Recyclability

Today’s world calls for us all to be more conscious of our environment. In 1998 the world recognised this by signing the Kyoto Agreement. The Kyoto Agreement directly affected the construction industry by demanding that buildings become more thermally efficient. With these demands longevity, thermal efficiency, sustainability and recyclability are now critical factors in construction.

Since 1888, over 700 million tonnes of aluminium have been produced. Over three quarters of the aluminium is still in productive use, 90% of the aluminium used in the construction industry is recycled. Recycling the aluminium currently stored would equal 15 years’ primary output, recycling aluminium requires 95% less energy than primary production. Recycling aluminium from end-of-life products saves close to 80 million tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions per year Since the inception of aluminium recycling, we have avoided over one billion tonnes of CO2 Emissions Unlike some alternative building materials, aluminium offers an almost unlimited life expectancy.

Aluminium does not age like other organic materials and needs no protection from ultra-violet light. It’s overall life-cycle is more environmentally friendly due to the minimum energy required in maintenance and the well established, proven design life of aluminium assures that the aluminium will provide a long term solution year on year with the guarantee of 100% recyclability at the end of a building’s life.
