Energy Efficient Glazing

Whether you've been looking to replace the windows of your home for a while, or have only just started to think about introducing new frames, with energy efficient glazing from Signature, you can significantly reduce your heating costs.

Your house windows are a significant investment, so when you come to replace them, it goes without saying that you'll want to find the very best windows for the job. That means finding windows that are durable, strong, secure and good looking... but there's another, often overlooked, area of consideration - and that's the energy efficiency of your windows.

Energy efficient glazing from Signature is available in a range of forms, including...

That means that you can have the perfect energy efficient glazing for your needs, whether you're looking for windows that resemble traditional timber box sash windows whilst incorporating the most modern developments, or instead windows that feature the kind of crisp, minimalist lines that makes them ideal for more contemporary-looking properties.

But what is energy efficient glazing... and how does it work?

Our windows here at Signature feature double glazing, which consists of two sheets of glass with a gap between them. This gap serves as an insulating barrier.

Our energy efficient glazing features such energy-saving technologies as standard as a special coating that reflects heat back into your home, keeping more of it inside so that you can have a warmer, more comfortable and draught-free home.

Our energy efficient glazing options also include insulated spacer bars, which are a type of spacer material that is used to separate the glass lites in an insulating window unit.

How can I tell whether I am buying truly energy efficient glazing?

This is where the Energy Saving Trust, as well as the Windows Energy Ratings (WER) scheme of the British Fenestration Rating Council (BFRC) comes in.

Only the most energy efficient glazing features the Energy Saving Trust Recommended logo, whilst the WER provides you with a means of more scientifically determining the extent to which supposed energy efficient glazing truly is energy efficient glazing.

Under the WER scheme, windows are examined on a component-by-component basis, being awarded a grade of between A (for maximum energy efficiency) and G (for the lowest).
