Why is energy efficiency important?
Making your home more energy efficient really pays off in terms of saving you money in the long run while also improving your home’s building energy rating (BER). Global Home Improvements invests a lot of time and money developing more energy efficient solutions to ensure they are better for the environment and more cost efficient for you, the homeowner. We are committed to making our products as energy efficient as possible, from our triple glazed A+ rated windows and doors to our Global Flat Roofing system.
Why are windows given an energy efficiency rating?
Just like electrical appliances, windows are rated on how energy efficient they are. Many companies don’t offer A+ or A-rated windows as standard, so it’s important to check the rating of what you’re buying. All our windows are triple glazed as standard with 2 panes of low-emissivity glass which reflects heat back into your home. Triple glazed PVCu windows from Global are A+ rated for energy efficiency, the highest rating in Ireland.
What makes our windows so energy efficient?
Global is the only company in Ireland installing triple glazing windows as standard. With up to 35% of the energy you buy to heat your home being lost through either single glazed or inefficient double glazed windows, investing in Global’s Heat Therm 30 triple glazed windows, incorporating our unique energy installation system, represents the best possible value between energy saving and cost.
The benefits of Global A+ rated windows
- Lower energy bills: replacing your windows with Global’s triple glazed A+ rated windows will save you hundreds of Euros on your heating bills every year.
- Global’s A+ rated windows ensure a more energy efficient and comfortable home. You will have less draughts or cold spots around your home plus our triple glazing will help to keep outside noise out.
- Global triple glazing is also more secure as you have an extra pane of glass to make it more difficult for intruders to gain entry.
We don’t just do energy A+ rated windows
The energy efficiency of your home is subject to a number of elements, such as doors, windows and roofs.
