Save money by selecting
energy efficient windows which
reduce your heating bills.
THE KEY FACTS
- The best way to compare windows for energy efficiency is to use the BFRC rating.
- BFRC rating is on a scale of A to G, where an A-rated window is more energy efficient than a G-rated window.
- Look for the BFRC label on windows and in literature to easily compare windows for energy efficiency.
- Different combinations of frame style, frame material, and glazing can yield very different results when trying to compare energy efficiency and cost. All of these factors can be compared using the BFRC rating.
Energy efficient windows, when correctly selected and installed, will help to minimise heating and lighting costs. They will also increase to the comfort and the amount of useable living space in your home. They can also help the environment with fewer carbon emissions.
Today, selecting energy efficient windows for a consumer is easier and better to understand with Window Energy Ratings (WER) which are independently assessed.
Window Energy Rated (WER) and what it means
The BFRC Window Energy Rating (WER) method includes all of the relevant factors in the energy efficiency of a window, as well as including the ‘loss factors’ such as U-value, it also includes the ‘gain factors’ such as the solar heat gain...
Why the need for Window Energy Ratings?
By using our WER high performance range of windows you will:
- Improve the energy efficiency of your home
- Save money on your heating bills
- Become more environmentally friendly – through use of recycling & PVCu environmentally friendly materials and lower carbon emissions
How will it make my home more energy efficient?
Simply using a C-Rated or above window reduces the amount of energy lost through windows by up to 90%.
That's enough energy to:
- Run 9 televisions for a year
- Drive over 600 miles in an average sized car
- Make 34,000 cups of tea
