Spring has arrived and many Essex homeowners are already taking advantage of the warmer weather by scheduling in window replacement or repairs.
Basildon’s top double glazing experts Acorn Windows says spring or summer is an ideal time to consider buying replacement windows as having them installed can leave your home exposed to the elements for a day or so – so it’s wise to do it during dry weather. However, its specialists fit double glazing products all year round so its never too late to improve the energy efficiency of your home and reduce those all important household bills.
Colin Brown, managing director, said “there are many reasons why people consider updating their windows. Some people choose to replace windows to update or improve the façade of their homes, which is especially advantageous if the property is soon to be placed on the market. Research shows new windows can make a big difference when it comes to finding a suitable buyer. Other people choose to replace because their current product has expired and no longer shields them from the elements or noise.
“It’s important to remember that replacement is not always the best option,” he said. “We carry out a lot of repairs and maintenance as well as offering new products, it depends on the age of the windows and how well they are performing as to which is most cost-effective for the home owner.
“Today’s double-glazing products are much more energy efficient than they were in the past. We find a lot of customers are choosing to update their windows to save money and better insulate their homes as their current products are 15 to 20 years old. Other people simply choose products on aesthetics alone. We have a comprehensive range of styles so homeowners can make the right decisions for them.”
The Energy Saving Trust estimates that the average home (a three bedroom semi detached property) could save about £135 per year on energy bills by replacing all single glazed windows with energy efficient glazing.
