Energy Saving

Prevention of heat loss from buildings is an extremely important way of helping to reduce carbon emissions. In 2002 the government revised Part L of the Building Regulations which sets the standards for energy efficiency in buildings. More recent developments include the British Fenestration Rating Council (BFRC) energy rating scheme for windows.

This is modelled on similar systems already in operation on items such as fridges or washing machines. The BFRC rating simply and effectively assesses the energy performance of a window. They are rated using an A to G scale on the basis of their total energy efficiency.

An A-rated window is more energy efficient than a G-rated window. Windows with a rating of A to C are entitled to apply for and use the prestigious government backed Energy Saving Recommended logo.

“Although it is not yet the law to have a BFRC rated window, the more conscientious among us would surely prefer to buy a window with a higher energy efficiancy rating”.
