Every Home Should Have Double Glazing

Channel 4’s George Clarke recently encouraged homeowners to convert old windows to energy-efficient double glazing windows in an attempt to lower our carbon footprint in line with the Kyoto Protocol.

The Home Show and The Restoration Man presenter cited 20 steps that every homeowner should take to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from their property. Among them, underfloor heating, good-quality loft insulation and simple common-sense methods of using local builders feature as good first steps.

In reference to replacement windows, Clarke said: “When you look at the potential energy savings, every house in the country ought to be double-glazed.”

Even Clarke’s Edwardian house in Notting Hill Gate features double glazing windows from top to bottom proving that no matter what your house looks like, and regardless of its age, there is a solution.

Bespoke window frames are more aesthetically pleasing than the standard UPVC models. Also, frames made from wood are generally more insulating, and quite often last longer.

If you are looking to upgrade your existing windows, take a look at our products page for full details of Britelite Windows. You can also save £100 off the cost of your installation by playing Britey’s A-Mazing Game Show.
