Long-term solutions to creating a warmer, more energy-efficient home
Buying A-rated windows – which means they’re among the most energy-efficient on the market, will protect your home against heat loss, condensation, and damp.
The Glass and Glazing Federation (GGF) say that the average house will save around £1,800 over ten years by replacing old pre-2002 windows with A-rated double glazed windows.
In addition, buying a composite front door guarantees your home will be cosy and draught-proof.
Our doors have undergone rigorous independent testing to ensure they withstand simulated rain tests and wind speeds of up to 80mph – without any ill-effects.
They are also 17% more energy efficient than standard competitor doors.

Improve the overall energy performance of your home
As well as lowering your bills and creating a warmer and healthier environment, improving the energy performance of your home helps towards cutting carbon emissions.
With the Government’s pledge to cut carbon emissions by 2050, home owners are expected to do their bit to contribute.
There is already now a legal requirement, introduced in June 2022, for all new windows to include trickle vents to improve air flow and quality in homes, and reduce mould and condensation.
Other energy-efficiency tips from the GGF include:
- Switch traditional halogen bulbs to LEDs
- Defrost the ice in your freezer if it is more than ¼ inches thick.
- Track and control energy usage on your phone to keep up-to-date
- Switch off appliances and devices when you’re away
- Fix leaky taps to prevent wasting water
