So how are Energy Efficient Windows different to standard double glazing?

Did you know that not all double glazing is the same? The type of glass used in your windows affects how energy efficient your home can be. To help homeowners understand this, the British Fenestration Ratings Council (BFRC) developed the Window Energy Ratings System. Put simply, the system measures the efficiency of the complete window unit and ranges from A-G (A being the highest –most energy saving, G being the lowest). You’ll probably notice that the scheme is similar to those labels found on fridges and other appliances. It’s a great way of comparing the energy performance of different products.

Energy Saving Recommended (ESR) is a government backed Energy Savings Trust. Products backed with this logo are guaranteed to be energy efficient. The ESR recommends a minimum of a C-Rated window to increase the efficiency of your home.
