Using less energy means less CO2
Using energy for heating (or cooling) dramatically impacts the environment. Generating energy typically produces greenhouse gases such as CO2. The more energy we use, the more emissions we create.
Science suggests man-made emissions play a major role in global warming and, in turn, influence climate change. Home energy use alone accounts for 27% of UK carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions which contribute to climate change.
Prevent Energy Waste
By making buildings more energy efficient with windows, we can reduce energy use and prevent energy waste. In the UK alone, fitting better windows could reduce emissions by almost 5 million tonnes.
The Glass and Glazing Federation calculates that if all UK replacement windows installed were Band C rated (like DuraGreen windows) instead of the minimum building regulation specification, each household could save the equivalent energy to making 34,000 cups of tea!
Our DuraGreen windows reduce condensation by up to 80%
The air in homes often has a high moisture content. Whenever we cook, bathe or even breathe, we increase water vapour. When saturated air contacts a cold surface, condensation forms, promoting bacterial growth and mould.
Both can compound respiratory problems such as asthma. With lower heat loss at the edges, our windows are typically 3-4°C warmer than those with metal spacer bars, reducing condensation by up to 80%.
