Draught proofing doors and windows

Draught-proofing internal doors and windows is a very cost-effective way to insulate your home, as you'll only need to install draught-stripping. If you want a more robust option, you can choose metal or plastic strips, or for windows that don't open, you can use a silicon sealant.

A Rated Double/Triple glazing (where replacing single glazing)

Windows in the UK are given their own energy rating of A to G, with A being the most energy efficient. A-rated glazing comes with two are three panes of glass with a sealed layer of air or gas between them. They can be designed or fitted to any type of window, in wood, metal or plastic frames.

Secondary glazing

Secondary glazing (in addition to single glazing) could be suitable where restrictions on the type of windows you can install exist. Your installer will need to fix an extra piece of glass or acrylic to your existing window.

New insulated external doors (replacing single glazed or solid doors installed before 2002)

If your home has an old or poorly fitted front or back door, it could be a source of heat loss. A new, modern uPVC door could help to stop heat escaping and keep your energy costs down - and best of all, it's quick and easy to install.
