Environmental Aspect of New Windows
When we are considering new windows for our homes, we tend to focus on the benefits for us, which makes sense. But there are also the positive environmental aspect of new windows that offer a secondary reason to make the upgrade.
One of the big selling points of double glazing is that it cuts down on heat loss and can save you money on your utility bills. But this is also a benefit for the environment. Double glazed windows can reduce emissions by hundreds of kilograms a year which helps the environment. Added to that is the reduced demand for gas and electricity that your property has, meaning you are using less fossil fuels.
Another benefit to good quality windows and doors is that they improve ventilation. This means that homes stay cool and don’t require air conditioning to cool them in the summer months. Again, this reduces the need for electricity to operate the air con and cuts back on the demand on the system.
Better insulation is another way that utility bills are reduced and wasted power along with it. Double glazing windows have top quality seals that reduce draughts and those tiny ways that heat can escape from the home.
Finally, the ease of cleaning of PVC windows means there are no harsh chemicals needed to clean the window frames. This means less chemicals going into the water supply or the soil around your home.
