Commit To A Window And Door Upgrade To Try Fight Against Energy Costs

Invest in energy efficient windows and doors to cut your energy costs

Energy bills are giving millions of UK homeowners a real financial headache at the moment due to the unprecedented rise of the price cap. 

This has been a hot topic in the news for weeks following the 54% increase from April 1st to £1971 (it previously stood at £1277). 

And it will continue to dominate headlines over the coming months as the price cap will jump again in October to £2600+. It could even be around the £3000 mark!

In normal circumstances, switching your supplier would be the answer, but very few cheaper deals exist, much to everyone’s dismay, including the Money Saving Expert, Martin Lewis. 

There are two things you can do that will help, the first being to be more conscious of the energy you use, and also getting energy efficient windows and doors fitted. 

We can justify the suggestion of installing new windows and doors.

Energy Efficient Windows

Could your windows be allowing heat to escape from your home? There’s a fair chance they will be if they’re only single glazed and outdated . 

Scrutinise them by looking for any signs of moisture or mould, cracks in the sealant around your windows, and seeing if you can feel any kind of draught filtering through. 

UPVC Extreme windows are just one style of window in our range that have an A+ rating as standard, which when installed, may save you money every year.

Energy Efficient Doors

You also need to ditch any ageing front or back door as again, they could be a source of heat loss. Carry out the same close inspection of your doors to identify whether they are a contributor to it. 

In a drive towards making homes more energy efficient, new doors must have a minimum U-value of 1.8 W/m², not least so that they comply with Building Regulations, as well as effectively insulate households.

With their exceptionally low U-values, our doors could make your home feel significantly warmer, without it costing you in energy.

A bonus of buying new windows and doors from TWC is that our guarantee runs for 20 years, double the industry standard. 

Get ahead of the game and request a quote for a window and door installation well before October’s price cap comes into effect.
