How to Make Your Windows More Energy Efficient

Written by John Nicoll

As the eyes of your house, your windows play an important role for your home. They not only offer lighting, security and allow fresh air into our interior, they also contribute towards your energy efficiency.

During the winter months, energy efficient windows can help save you money on your heating, as they are great for keeping warmth in your home. If you’re thinking of making your windows more energy efficient, take a look at our top tips.

Opt for Window Decor

There are three main options for great window décor: blinds, shutters, and curtains. The best choice for window insulation during winter is curtains, as they help prevent heat from escaping your home, while also blocking drafts. They can also be opened up during the day to let those few hours of precious sunlight in.

Double Glazing

Throughout recent years, most modern homes will be built with double glazing windows. This is where two panes of glass are separated by a layer of air to help reduce condensation and keep the warm air in. This is perfect for creating energy efficient windows!

You could take it a step further and opt for triple glazing. This is when a third pane if glass is adding to your windows, creating an extra layer for even more warmth.

Replace Your Windows

Over many years, your windows may become damaged or cracked. If your windows are not an efficient as they used to be, we recommend having them repaired or replaced to ensure maximum efficiency, especially during this time of the year. This will keep your home warm for years to come.
