A+14 windows for A+14 energy efficiency
Here at Majestic all of our windows are rated A+14 for energy efficiency. Here’s why energy ratings are important to bear in mind when choosing a new window.
Energy ratings: how they work
Windows are rated using the WER (Window Energy Rating) scale designed by the British Fenestration Ratings Council. The scale runs alphabetically, from A—G, with the best, highest performing windows rated A and above, and the worst, lowest performing windows rated G.
The WER scale takes into account a host of features when grading the energy rating of a window. It considers factors such as the U value, the solar heat gain value (G value) and the overall air leakage of the window’s components. Most windows that home improvement companies supply are rated between A—C on this scale: achieving an above an A value is difficult.
A+14 energy rated as standard for enhanced energy efficiency
All of the windows that we manufacture and install here at Majestic are A+14 energy rated, as standard. This means that the quality of our windows exceeds the expectations of the WER scale. The exceptional quality of the profile, as well as the high quality double glazing that we supply as standard, ensures that your new window will help to keep your home at the right temperature, always, whilst saving you energy and money in the process.
Majestic: A+14 rated, exceptional installations
Here at Majestic, we’re A+14 rated. Achieving such an incredibly high rating relies on more than just making the glazing in a window a great thermal insulator. The quality of the frame, window profile and installation all contribute to how thermally retentive the overall window is. At Majestic we understand this and manufacture our products with this in mind.
We design our windows with a unique thermal reinforcement that enhances their thermal and acoustic insulation, as well utilising the latest high quality double glazing as standard for improved energy efficiency. Combine this with exceptional installations performed by our in-house, experienced team of craftsmen and you can understand why Majestic have been rated an A+14 installer!
Beware of bogus energy rating claims
When home improvement companies brag about their energy ratings, they should be able to provide certification that proves they are telling the truth. This means showing you ratings documentation with their company name and address on it rather than the details of a third party. As both a manufacturer of windows, and an installer, Majestic have our certification readily on hand to prove that our incredible energy ratings are genuine. Unfortunately, many other double glazing companies don’t. If a company can’t show any supporting documentation to you it normally means that they either don’t manufacture their own products, or that they aren’t even rated! Be careful when dealing with home improvement companies who make suspicious claims: always ask to see documentation.
