Many homes throughout the UK are still fitted with single pane wooden windows and wooden doors, which don’t provide the best levels of insulation, energy efficiency, security and weather proofing that homes need in order to stay in great condition. Most people believe they just haven’t the money to upgrade to newer windows and doors, but you really don’t have to break the bank in order to have replacements fitted, and there are definite savings to be made in the future.
This is because by increasing your energy efficiency you will be able to keep heat inside your home through better insulation, instead of allowing it to escape through inefficient doors and windows. Energy wastage is one of the biggest causes of global warming right now – the less insulation your home has, the more heat you will need to get your home warm. To do this you will need to turn your central heating up higher than it really needs to go, meaning you will spend more money on your energy and will be using up extra resources.
If you would like to transform your home into a green machine, the first thing that you should do is replace your old windows and doors with energy efficient uPVC ones. They will have much better insulation and will keep your home toasty warm in the winter for half the price of what you are paying now. They will also help to keep your home cool in the summertime thanks to smart insulation technology, and they are much more secure than older windows and doors as well.
Single pane windows are very easy to smash, making an easy entrance for burglars and thieves. Wooden doors can be much easier to break down than modern ones, making homes that are fitted with them an instant target. Modern doors and windows, on the other hand, have double or sometimes triple glazing that can be very difficult to smash without attracting attention and uPVC doors absorb impacts very well, making them almost impossible to break down quickly.
You can find the best uPVC doors and windows for your home by looking online now and you will be able to select the ones that appeal to you the most. You will want to think about your style of home and see while windows and doors suit it the best, so that you can keep your home’s character. Of course, you might want to try adding to it by choosing an alternative style, such as cottage style windows, French windows or bi-fold windows.
