The UK's largest supplier of gas and electricity are raising their prices by a not inconsiderable amount for the second time in a year, and unfortunately many other providers are following suit. This comes despite the fact that the whole sale cost of energy has decreased, so the companies themselves are paying less for it and selling it on to their consumers at a marked up price.
People are beginning to consider switching providers en masse to the smaller, independent energy companies, but unfortunately there is no guarantee that they will not soon be putting their prices up too.
For this reason many homeowners are looking for new ways to lower their energy bills which will last long into the future, even after their new or old energy providers have put their prices up even further. Britain is falling deeper and deeper into double dip recession, so there does not seem to be an end in sight; thankfully though the manufacturing industry is going from strength to strength, which means that it is just as affordable now to get composite windows and doors fitted to your home as it was before the recession started back in 2008.
Add to this the fact that most people will not have been running their central heating or turning on their fire places for the best part of six months now, and the chances are good that people will have a little bit of cash spare that they would have spent heating their homes had it been winter. Now, then, is the perfect time to make sure that their homes are as insulated as possible so that their hard earned heat energy does not escape through their doors and windows over the coming winter months.
The great thing about triple glazed windows is that they are so durable in comparison to their single and double glazed cousins. Three thick panes of glass, with a vacuum between, means that there is very little chance of any heat energy radiating through to the cold outside and your room will remain warm long after you turn off your central heating. They are also very resistant to scratching, and will almost never leak, which means that even though it is a considerable outlay to get your home fitted with triple glazing, they will last for many years and will pay for themselves with the savings in energy bills.
Triple glazed and double glazing windows can be fitted into all kinds of composites, including folding and bi folding doors, so you can ensure that your windows will last for years and will save you money on your energy bill until they pay for themselves.
