As a homeowner we’re sure you’re always thinking of ways to reduce your outgoings, including your energy bills. Particularly at the moment, with the cost of living and energy prices in particular rising markedly in the past year.

The good news is, there are some things you can do to help improve energy efficiency, including upgrading your current windows to new energy efficient windows. There are many benefits of energy efficient windows, from helping to reduce your energy bills to improved comfort, and greater protection for the sun’s rays. So if you’re considering double and triple glazing, read on to find out more.

Lower Energy Bills

As the name suggests, energy-efficient windows are energy saving windows. Due to their insulating properties, they are more efficient windows and can help you to save money on your energy bills. Did you know, that up to 25% of the heat in your home is lost through poorly insulated windows and doors?

By upgrading to energy efficient double glazing or even triple glazing, your replacement windows have the potential to save you up to £175 per year on your energy bills. They will also reduce your carbon footprint as you are reducing your energy consumption and keep heat in your home.

Improved Comfort

Installing energy efficient will save energy and make your home more comfortable throughout the year.

Have you been using heavy curtains to keep keep your home warm in the winter? The benefits of energy efficient windows are that the temperature in your home will be better regulated with double-glazing and make your home more comfortable than conventional windows.

Reduction in drafts, less condensation & hot spots

As the temperature reduces in cold weather you may notice that some of your windows and doors are not doing a good job of keeping out the drafts due to gaps in the window frames. Perhaps you notice condensation forming between the panes of glass or that certain rooms are a hot spot. These are all down to inefficiencies in your current windows.

Energy-efficient window replacement will help with to improve all of this.

Increased insulation properties

Another one of the benefits of energy-efficient double-glazed windows is their excellent insulation properties. Double-glazed and triple-glazed windows reduce heat loss due to their extra glass panes, which enclose a cavity of dry, still air between the extra sheets of glass. Something which cannot be achieved with single-glazed windows.

Better temperature regulation

Old windows, weaker frame material, and single glazing are not as thermally efficient as new windows. By upgrading to more energy-efficient windows or having your current windows serviced or repaired, you can maintain a comfortable temperature all year round. The extra layer of glass will mean potential savings on your bills.

UV Protection

UV rays can not only be dangerous for for individuals but also for the items in your home, including furniture and fabrics. The special coating in more energy-efficient windows protects items from harmful UV rays. This unique coating is not something that you will find in single pane windows.

Noise Reduction & Noise Protection

If you live in a busy area, unwanted noise in your home such as traffic noise can be annoying. Double and tripe glazed windows are fantastic at reducing external noise and helping to soundproof your home.


The initial investment of upgrading to new window installations and adding secondary glazing will have a variety of benefits over time, including reduced maintenance, reduced condensation, reduced energy use, energy savings, and improved heating and cooling in your home.
