Tom Swallow, Sales and Marketing Director of Quick Slide Windows, explains how building and construction professionals can help make homes more energy efficient by investing in high quality windows and doors.

Becoming more energy efficient can not only help save the environment, it can help save you money in the long-run. Taking a few simple measures, such as turning off the lights and turning down your heating, can help. However, investing in energy-efficient products, such as windows and doors, are a one-time investment.

You can make a home more energy efficient by making the right investment; here’s how to do it…

PVC-u windows

Energy efficiency with PVCu windowsWhile there is the initial investment to consider, replacing your windows to PVC-u will offer a cost effective and virtually maintenance free solution.

With an energy rating of A+, these windows are among the highest quality products; they include argon gas, which can help to make homes more energy efficient.

PVC-u windows hold no risk of warping or rusting. The majority of profiles these days are multi chambered and often surpass their rivals during industry standard testing.

PVC-u Sliding Sash and Casement windows keep with any style of home and are available in any RAL colour as well as being available in a Woodgrain effect – say goodbye to chunky off-white plastic windows.

Top tip: It may sound simple but another way to make your home more energy efficient is by opening the blinds. Keep your heating off during the day and let your house be warmed by natural sunlight.

Double your energy efficiency with a good door

Eco-friendly doors, such as PVCu and aluminium doors, are not only more energy efficient; they offer a great design with the upmost security. These type of doors offer outstanding quality and are an investment that provides long-term value.

Top tip: If you’re after a quick way to draught-proof your home before installing a new door, you can quickly improve the energy efficiency of your home by using draught excluders.
