Keep your family warm and save on your energy bills

How can home improvements benefit your family?

Upon first thought you probably can’t think of a tangible link between the two. However, you may be surprised at how updating your windows could help benefit your family life.

In times where every penny counts, it is worth considering the money you could save on your energy bills if you were to update the windows in your family home.

How to keep your family warm and save £’s at the same time

To help you understand how you could achieve these savings, it might be worth considering the points below:

  • The average annual energy bill for households is between £615-£1,220*
  • It is reported that you could be losing up to 20%** of the heat in your home if you only have single glazed windows
  • All windows today have to have a Window Energy Rating (WER) of C, so all new double and triple glazed windows should reduce heat loss in your home. The WER will dictate how much heat is lost through the windows, A++ being the highest and G the lowest (see WER example below)
  • By installing A-rated double glazing in your home you could save up to £160 on your energy bills each year***
