What actually are energy efficient windows?
Energy efficient glass creates an insulating barrier between your home and the outside world. The air gap between the panes is filled with a gas which has a low conductivity to heat, further reducing the heat loss. Poorly fitted or insulated windows can make a huge difference to energy efficiency of your home, so improving this means you don’t have to leave your heating on as much and don’t wake up shivering.
How much will energy efficient windows save me?
According to the energy saving trust installing energy efficient glass could save you up to £110 a year. Given the ever increasing cost of energy the savings are likely to be far greater in the future.
Energy efficient windows are also better for the environment as they reduce the carbon footprint of your household.

They reduce unwanted noise, reduce cold spots, draughts and reduce condensation, making your home a more comfortable place to live.
