Help Your Wallet And Environment With Energy Efficient Windows And Doors

Cut your energy bills

With everything from petrol to food prices rising in price, homeowners are seeking ways to save money.

One way to accomplish this is to limit your consumption of energy. Not only will this help you, but minimising your energy consumption also lowers your carbon footprint.

Beginning on the 1st of April, the maximum amount of energy that a supplier can charge you is £1971 for how much gas and electricity you use. 

This number marks a 54% increase on the former figure of £1277. Frustratingly,  experts do not see and end in sight with predictions as high as £2600!

The current most inexpensive tariff available is £2800. So, unlike in the past where switching suppliers could save you money, this may no longer be the case.

As dire as all this sounds, we do have some helpful advice.

Before cold weather returns in October, and we see a price cap increase, it would be wise to invest in energy efficient doors and windows installed by Speedy.

Below are some reasons why it will be worth it in the long-term.

Energy Efficient Windows

Nearly one fifth of heat loss is a direct result of antiquated, poorly insulated windows. Heat can escape through the window frames or by way of the glazing.

The easiest way to find out if you are losing heat through your windows is to hold a candle up to them. If the candle flickers, this signifies a movement of air which means that the hot air inside your house is escaping through your window. Additionally, one can look for the presence of moisture or mould indicating heat loss.

We at Speedy provide an A+ rated standard for our energy efficient windows. Replacing your aging windows with our cost saving windows can help you save an average of £170 per year.

Energy Efficient Doors

Homeowners can lose an estimated 15% of heat from their home through poorly insulated front and back doors. Use similar strategies as those mentioned above to find out whether your doors are also contributing to unnecessary heat loss.

In order to meet building regulations, all replacement doors must reach a U-value of 1.8 W/m². In this case, the U-value represents the amount of heat passing through a door. This regulation includes the door as well as its glass and frame.

At Speedy, we design our wide variety of different doors to exceed these U-value regulations. And by exceed, we mean we strive for lower U-values which will save you money through minimising energy loss.

Energy efficient doors

Not only will our windows and doors save you money and the environment energy, but they also come with a 10-year guarantee. This represents the minimum length of time they should perform for. Our energy efficient windows and doors will begin paying for themselves from the moment they are installed. 

Don’t wait until you spend even more money losing energy through your antiquated windows and doors. Now is the time to invest in your home’s energy efficient future by clicking here.
