In a boost for energy conscious homeowners, the UK’s biggest home improvement company, Anglian Home Improvements, today announced that it will offer ‘A rated’ as standard across its uPVC range of casement windows.
Energy ratings apply to windows, just like household appliances, and are based on the window’s efficiency at retaining heat. Independently assessed and awarded by the British Fenestration Rating Council (BFRC), A rated windows provide greater energy efficiency for the home, preventing energy from being lost through the windows. They also retain more of the sun’s free energy, keeping energy bills down all round.
This latest initiative to help ‘green’ Britain’s homes follows the recent visit of Greg Barker MP, Minister of State at the Department of Energy & Climate Change (DECC), to Anglian Home Improvements’ head office in Norwich for talks on energy issues including the Green Deal and proposed changes to the Energy Companies Obligation (ECO) scheme. Anglian was one of the first companies to support the Green Deal scheme and is also an Energy Saving Trust Recommended supplier.
Melanie McDonald, Head of Marketing and Communications at Anglian Home Improvements, said, “Anglian has long been focused on improving energy efficiency in the home and raising the standard for British homeowners. This decision has come as a result of increasing demand from our customers, who have become much more energy conscious and expect superior energy efficiency throughout their homes, from household appliances to windows and doors. Anglian is proud to respond to this demand, making energy efficiency achievable for homeowners across the country.”
Established in 1966, Anglian Home Improvements is the UK’s biggest double glazing window, door and conservatory specialist, manufacturing over 4,800 windows per week. For more information and to view the full product range, visitwww.anglianhome.co.uk
