Why energy performance matters
Reduce energy bills
Installing BFRC rated energy efficient windows and doors will save you money on your energy bills. Citizens Advice calculated that energy price increases were eight times higher than rises in average earnings from October 2010 to November 2013. Many experts predict the costs of heating homes will continue to rise.
Cut carbon emissions
Being able to reduce our energy bills and reduce the carbon emissions from our homes by making them more energy efficient is becoming increasingly important so when investing in windows and doors, make sure they are BFRC rated.
Improve comfort in your home
Building regulations stipulate that replacement windows must be rated C or above and doors E or higher, except in historic properties and conservation areas. BFRC ratings do much more than comply with building regulations, they help you choose the right energy performance to make your home more comfortable to live in.
Why insist on BFRC energy rated windows and doors
When choosing energy efficient windows or doors for your home, you can see how they'll look but not how they'll perform. That's why it is crucial to check your installer will use BFRC-rated products. This will help you make a fully informed choice about what energy performance rating, from A++ to C is right for your specific installation. When your windows are fitted, our rainbow rating label will prove they will perform as promised.
