Britain’s double glazing industry has been given a boost after it was confirmed the Energy Bill would be passed in this country.
The Energy Bill was first mentioned in the spring, and when it’s introduced homes around the UK will be forced to make ‘green’ changes.
And double glazing is one of the most environmentally friendly ways to insulate your home and reduce carbon dioxide emissions.
With double glazed windows you’ll use less energy to warm your home as heat loss is reduced. This will keep down your monthly energy bills and lower your carbon footprint.
The bill will allow homeowners to use the savings they make from the Green Deal to pay for environmentally friendly upgrades. This will make insulation affordable and give all homes the chance to cut their energy bills.
Chris Huhne, secretary for the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC), says that this is the first scheme of its kind anywhere in the world.
He believes that the bill will protect families from the ever-increasing energy prices and will help them escape fuel poverty.
Double glazing isn’t just useful for preventing heat loss either. Because there are two panes that can’t feel each other’s temperature, moisture can’t settle on the inner pane. This means condensation is seriously reduced.
With double glazed windows you’ll also have less noise pollution. So a busy main road or traffic works won’t cause you a problem and your home will be peaceful throughout day and night.
