Energy Efficient Home Improvements

Helping Homeowners and the Environment

Making homes more energy efficient is very important to us here at Sheerwater Glass. Not just because of the benefits this provides our customers but because of the positive impact it has on the environment. Most homes are heated via fossil fuels, the consumption of which causes harmful CO2 emissions. As homes become more energy efficient, less fuel is required to heat them. Therefore, less harmful emissions are expelled into the environment.

So, how do we make homes more energy efficient? Well, for starters, we make sure that our double glazing product portfolio is littered with the latest energy-efficient products. Whether that’s our windows, doors efficient roof lanterns or conservatories, our customers have ample opportunity to improve their home and reduce their carbon footprint.

High-performance Windows

The British Fenestration Rating Council (BFRC) independently tests windows to determine how thermally efficient they are before providing them with a Window Energy Rating (WER). The lower the rating, the worse the thermal performance is. Ratings start at E and go up to A++.

Here at Sheerwater Glass, we offer a range of windows which achieve some of the highest Window Energy Ratings that you can find. Our exclusive uPVC slimline windows, for example, achieve a Window Energy Rating (WER) of A+. So, if you’re thinking of upgrading the windows on your home, choose us and we guarantee it will be more efficient as a result.

Thermally Efficient Doors

Doors provide a passageway for you to move between the inside and outside of your home or between rooms. But, just because they let you move freely, doesn’t mean they should let out heat or let in the cold. Fortunately, with our selection of doors, you needn’t worry about either happening. Expertly fitted to be totally draught proof, enjoy an impressive selection of thermally efficient uPVC, aluminium, timber and composite door designs.

The thermal superiority of our composite doors, for example, is achieved because of a solid timber core that sits behind a Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP) skin.

Ultra-insulated Conservatories

Available with uPVC, timber or aluminium frames, you can add a stylish, well-lit living space to your home with one of our conservatories. And because they make full use of thermal technologies like multi-chambered frames, polyamide thermal breaks, and high-quality glazing, you can increase your living space without sacrificing your energy performance.

To maximise efficiency, our customers can opt for a Guardian Warm Roof. This unique tiled roofing system is suitable for any conservatory style, new conservatories, and for retrofitting. Oh, and they achieve a simply incredible U-value of just 0.18 W/m2k.

Conservation Areas

If you live in a conservation area and have decided to improve your home, chances are you’re limited in what improvements you can make. However, we ensure that you can keep within planning guidelines and still make your home more energy efficient.

Our customers have exclusive access to Evolution flush casement windows, which are regularly approved for use in conservation areas and achieve a Window Energy Rating (WER) of A+11. We also install high-quality secondary glazing so you can retain your property’s external aesthetics whilst improving the thermal performance of your windows.
