Energy Rated Windows Rotherham
Best Choice Windows are at the forefront of energy rated windows
Recent developments in the double glazing industry now means double glazed windows can be rated the same way as white goods, such as fridges can. This simple scheme controlled by the BFRC (British Fenestration Rating Council) allows windows that have been put through a rigorous testing process to display a rating from A - G with an A rating being the best.
Best Choice Windows now sell two fantastic Energy Rated windows.
- 'A' rated SolarisEnergyMax
- 'C' rated SolarisEnergy
There are two major reasons why you should choose windows that carry a 'C' rating or higher when you improve you home;
- They are better for the environment
- They save you money
In simple terms, energy rated windows utilise the suns FREE solar power to help heat your home. Excellent insulation qualities ensure that 'heat loss' through your windows is kept to a minimum. Both of these functions result in your heating bills and energy consumption being dramatically reduced.
Only windows that carry a 'C' rating or higher are considered 'Energy Saving'.
Window Energy Rated (WER) and what it means
The BFRC Window Energy Rating (WER) method includes all of the relevant factors in the energy efficiency of a window, as well as including the 'loss factors' such as U-value, it also includes the 'gain factors' such as the solar heat gain.
Informed decisions making for the homeowner
It provides consumers with clear identification of energy efficient products to enable them to make informed purchasing decisions. For windows, the BFRC Rating and the BFRC label provides a 'better ruler' to establish the total energy performance of a rated window.
Energy labels allow buyers to compare and select products based on the product's specific energy performance rather than on manufacturers claimed values. Window Energy Rating (WER), identifies energy saved by installing WER rated window
Accredited WER windows work on the same principle as energy efficient labelling used on domestic products, like washing machines.
