From Composite Doors to Double Glazing in Woldingham
Tips to Keep Your Property Warm

The UK always seems to enjoy a few weeks of summer, but the weather can be cold and dreary for much of the year. Cooler winds hit in autumn, winter and spring, while rain seems to come and go at relatively short notice. To combat these conditions, your home needs reliable double glazing that prevents heat loss and internal dampness. You might also wish to consider uPVC windows, aluminium windows, composite doors or bifold doors, depending on your budget and the immediate needs of your Woldingham home.

Below, we look at simple ways to make your property more thermally efficient. If you’d like a quote without hearing from a pushy salesperson, call Dorwyn Ltd. Our team has no sales team because we don’t need them; we have a great reputation and rely on positive referrals.

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.

Warm Roofs

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.
