Climate change is a serious concern for all of us and, as such, we want to do our best to reduce emissions. It turns out the amount of CO2 emissions you produce during your day-to-day life are linked to it. Your home’s heating fuel produces a lot of CO2 so by installing more efficient heating, you can reduce the carbon footprint and save money. Your home can be more energy efficient by replacing your outdated windows with new energy-efficient ones.
Energy-efficient windows can help you save on energy bills while preserving the overall quality of your home.
You’ll be surprised to hear that up to 25% of the heating in your home can be lost through your windows! By installing energiKare™ windows from Pilkington, you can reduce the amount of energy lost through your windows by up to 75%.
Energy-efficient windows are cost-effective. Not only do they help reduce utility costs, but also your energy bills will be lower than ever before.
Energy efficient windows help reduce the amount of energy needed when maintaining ambient temperature in your home, which means reduced monthly bills. With Pilkington energiKare™ insulating glass units, your energy bills can be reduced by up to 20%. This may be more substantial for a typical semi-detached house that could save £7000!
Energy-saving windows can help you save money and the environment at the same time!
By installing Pilkington energiKare™ windows you can be assured of doing your bit for the environment. Pilkington energiKare™ insulating glass units will reduce CO2 emissions from your home, which helps your carbon footprint. In a gas-heated semi-detached house, switching from single glazing in timber to Pilkington energiKare™ could save you 0.72 Tonnes of CO2 every year.

Windows containing Pilkington EnergiKare™ are energy-efficient according to the Government approved Window Energy Ratings (WER) scheme. Window Energy Ratings usually use a scale from A++-E which is indicated on a label that looks like those found on energy efficient household appliances. Windows rated A++ are the most energy-efficient and those that are WER band C and above meet recommendations from the Energy Saving Trust as Energy Saving Recommended products.
