The Difference Between B Rated and A Rated Windows
A-rated windows are one of the products C&W Direct are renowned for with our customers. One of the most important choices you will have when choosing new windows is choosing the best thermal efficiency rated product. A-rated windows are a great long term money saver due to their superior thermal performance, with a reduced dependency on fuel to heat and cool your home.
Building Regulations require that any newly installed windows must be at a minimum C rated, with the only exception being those in listed buildings. C&W Direct go above and beyond for our customers which is why we specify the highest quality of double glazed A rated windows.
Research from the Energy Saving Trust says you can save between £75 and £110 per year with double glazing, with 44% of those surveyed saying their home was warming with this choice of windows.
The benefits of Double Glazing Windows
Having well-insulated glazing will also add up 10% to the value of your home, although this can depend on the type of property you own.
Here are some other benefits of double glazing –
- Reduce Condensation – Condensation occurs when warm air hits cold surfaces but the level of moisture in your home is significantly reduced with double glazing.
- Increased Home Security – The design of double glazing ensures your windows are sealed tighter and harder to force open.
- Improved Sound Insulation – Much in the same way double glazing keeps your home warmer it also creates a barrier to block outdoor noises.
