Increase Daytime Sunlight
Maximise warmth in the Banstead area by letting the sunlight in during the day. This means opening the curtains at the right time and drawing them at night. Thicker curtains will preserve warmth during the night but won’t restrict airflow while open. Bifold doors prove especially useful because of the clear double glazing and thin frames that offer a clear path for the sunlight to enter.
Check for Draughts
Do you feel a chill even with the windows closed? If so, you may have a draught coming in. About 10 per cent of heat in the average home escapes through the windows and doors, but this figure may rise due to an old or improper fixture. At Dorwyn Ltd, we fit uPVC windows, uPVC doors and composite doors with a tight finish through expert craftsmanship. This will ensure your property stays as warm as possible.
Replace Single Glazing
Older homes tend to feature a blend of single and double-glazed windows. These single-glazed panels will lose more heat than double glazing because they lack the additional layer and argon gas that improves efficiency. For this reason, installing new uPVC windows or bifold doors will likely transform your space for extra comfort in the wintery seasons.
Consider Composite Doors
UPVC doors act as superb insulators, but composite doors take things a step further for optimal security and energy efficiency. These innovative products from Solidor boast an insulated timber core that maintains the temperature inside your Banstead property – working as a barrier that cold air simply can’t penetrate. Should an accident or act of vandalism occur, the glass stays in the frame so that you lose less heat while waiting for professional aid.
It isn’t just about getting new double glazing, bifold doors, uPVC windows or uPVC doors. If you own a conservatory with a glass roof, then you may lose a considerable amount of thermal energy through the ceiling. Our locally trusted fitters install warm conservatory and orangery roofs across Banstead, using the finest products from Guardian Building Systems.
By following the above steps, you’ll be better prepared for the cold air of winter and can expect to spend less on heating as a result.
