Energy prices are continually rising and it’s starting to become a serious problem for many homeowners up and down the country. Annual bills are now at a record high, doubling since 2004 and this rise isn’t expected to slow anytime soon.
As gas and electricity rates rise, there’s a growing need for insulation in the home. Insulation takes many shapes and sizes and is used to prevent heat loss through walls, windows, the floor and the roof. But one of the most popular techniques to improve home energy efficiency is with double glazing.
Double glazing Norwich is very important as a consequence and with new windows you can see energy bills reduced by £300 a year. Double glazing is popular for properties all over the UK and Norwich is no different, with nearly 1,000 online searches for double glazing Leeds in May.
Norwich house prices are notoriously high compared to the rest of the country and it seems homeowners don’t want to lose value because of inefficient homes. Which is why double glazing is such a popular option, improving efficiency and creating a fantastic aesthetic appeal for the windows.
The efficiency of properties is measured using something known as the Energy Performance Certificate. Ratings range from A to G, with A being the most efficient. With upgraded windows you’ll increase the rating of your home and with it, the value of your property.
But how will double glazing Norwich help to reduce your bills?
Double glazing is manufactured by two panes of glass separated by an energy efficient spacer, usually Argon, Xenon or Krypton. This means heat can’t pass through the unit and as a result is trapped in your home. Consequently, you don’t need to turn up the thermostat to stay warm.
With double glazing there’s now the chance to ensure your windows look great too with a choice in materials and colours to pick from. uPVC remains the nation’s favourite for double glazing Norwich, but aside from the typical white finish you can now have woodgrain effects which look fantastic.
