Replace your windows to save money and keep out the cold

Floor to Ceiling Windows with Geogian Bars and Snow outside

With icy conditions and snow forecast for much of the UK this month, you may well be considering replacement windows to keep out the worst of the British winter.

Not only can new windows help keep rapidly-rising energy bills low, but you’ll also enjoy having a warmer, quieter home that has an enhanced value.

Here are a few things to take into account before committing to new windows:

  • Consider the style and design

Different properties suit different window styles, depending on the age and character of the building. Sash windows, for example, may well complement older homes or conservation areas with lots of period architecture, while more recently-built properties might suit casement windows. (If you’re unsure, casement windows are attached to their frame by one or more hinges. A sash window has one or two sashes which are slid vertically to create an opening.)

  • Look into the energy-saving benefits

An energy-saving calculator from an independent website can let you know how much money you could save on your bills by replacing your current windows with modern solutions that use energy-efficient glazing.

  • Choose your replacement window company with care

As when buying anything else as big as replacement windows, it pays to shop around, to ensure your deposit is protected, to read the terms and conditions of your contract in full, and to be sure that you understand everything before you agree to go ahead.

Find out what action you could take if you weren’t happy with the work carried out.

Industry experts always suggest choosing a company that has been trading for a minimum of three years and is Minimum Technical Competency (MTC) qualified.
