Increase Daytime Sunlight
Maximise warmth by letting as much sunlight as possible into your Woldingham home during the day. This means opening the curtains at the right time and drawing them at night. Bifold doors and aluminium windows with slim frames are especially effective at maximising sunlight and thus natural heat. This is because they allow for maximum double glazing and a clear path for sunlight to enter.
Check for Draughts
Do you feel a chill even with the windows are closed? If so, you may have a draught coming in. About 10 per cent of heat in the average home escapes through windows and doors, but this figure may rise due to an old or improper fixture. At Dorwyn Ltd, our expert craftsmanship ensures all uPVC windows, composite doors and other products have a tight finish to prevent draughts and heat loss.
Replace Single Glazing
Older homes in Woldingham tend to feature a blend of single and double-glazed windows. Single-glazed panels lose more heat than double glazing because they lack the additional layer and argon gas that improves efficiency. For this reason, upgrading your glazing will keep your home warmer.
Consider Composite Doors
Composite doors offer the best in home security and energy efficiency. Innovative products from Solidor boast an insulated timber core that maintains the temperature inside your property – working as a barrier that cold air simply can’t penetrate. Furthermore, should an accident or act of vandalism occur, damaged glass stays in the frame, so you lose less heat while waiting for professional aid.
It isn’t just about getting new double glazing, bifold doors, uPVC windows or aluminium windows. If you own a conservatory with a glass roof, you may lose a considerable amount of thermal energy through the ceiling. Our locally trusted fitters install warm conservatory and orangery roofs across Woldingham, 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.
