Replace windows and reduce your carbon footprint
There’s a distinct chill in the air (and probably in your living room as well) at the moment and when winter arrives your home can begin to feel like an over-sized refrigerator. For most of us there is no option but to turn on the central heating and crank it up high. However, before you go burning through oil or gas and ramping up your heating bills take a look around the house and see if there are any ways you can reduce energy costs, keep heat in and keep cold out and ultimately save yourself a bit of money – not to mention the planet.
One of the most effective ways is to ensure that your home is properly insulated and that no heat is escaping unnecessarily. It is estimated that approximately one-third of your home's total heat loss escapes through poorly insulated windows and doors, so improving the quality of your windows is a good start to saving money and reducing your carbon footprint.
And at the same time as reducing your energy bill high quality replacement windows can improve the overall look and feel of your home making it more comfortable, quiet, and attractive. If you live in an older period home lots of window manufacturers will be able to replace your windows with designs that are in keeping with the style so there’s no need to compromise on the overall aesthetic.

From a noise reduction point of view, new technology using new and improved double-glazing increases the overall thermal energy of your home and can greatly reduce the level of noise that reaches you from outside. Not so important if you live in a quiet cul-de-sac, but definitely something worth considering if your house is on a busy road. Increasing insulation under your floors and in your attic will also add to the cosines of your house and help to further reduce ambient noise from outside.
Replacing old windows and insulating your home can be a costly enterprise, but you will see your bills reduce immediately and these days we all need to be doing our bit for the environment as well. Take a look around the house and assess where the problem areas are. Even if you can only afford to have some of your windows replaced in the most affected areas of the house, it will make a big difference and will certainly be worth the investment in the long run.
