Upgrade Your Windows and Doors Ready for Winter
If you’re already reaching for the thermostat, it’s time to refurbish your windows and doors. With the colder months of the year just around the corner, there’s never been a better time to make the upgrade.
If your windows and doors are older or haven’t been fitted properly, they are more than likely allowing warmth out and chilly, damp weather in. This is particularly pertinent if your home has older timber windows, that can warp and rot over time. A poorly insulated home can wreak havoc on your family’s health, as well as cause various issues within your home such as mould and mildew. While you could take a DIY approach and attempt to block drafts or run a dehumidifier, it’s better to futureproof your property by upgrading your windows and doors before the full impact of any adverse weather takes hold.
The benefits of upgrading your windows and doors
The main areas of your home to check when evaluating the energy efficiency of your property is your loft and cavity wall insulation. Both are essential in optimising the energy efficiency of your property. However, there is little point in attempting to insulate your home without taking a good look at your windows.
If your property has older style windows engineered from uPVC or its original timber doors for example, refurbishing your premises with modern double glazing, new window frames and more secure doors can save you the hassle of costly utility bills. New windows and doors can also keep your home secure from unwelcome intruders who might take advantage as the nights grow longer.
In the cooler winter months, everybody loves a warm and cosy home. Unfortunately, if your property still features its original windows and doors, your energy consumption may be resulting in costly utility bills. Over time poorly sealed homes can also suffer from the effects of adverse weather, especially in the UK where damp, mould and condensation ravages properties without sufficient insulation.
Modern windows and doors feature innovative seals and double glazing that insulate your home from the effects of adverse weather such as damp, mould and condensation. Engineered with thermal retention and security in mind, you can rest assured your property will be kept warm, dry and secure this winter.
As winter progresses and daylight hours get increasingly shorter, you’re more likely to be leaving your home and returning in low levels of light. Unfortunately, this can create more opportunities for unwelcome intruders to enter your property under the cover of darkness. If your windows are of an older style, you and your family will not be benefitting from multi-point locking mechanisms, modern seals or more durable frames engineered from uPVC or aluminium.
Upgrading your windows and doors with modern double glazing, modern security features and strong, resilient frames means you can rest assured you and your family will be kept safe this winter.
