    We don’t buy double glazing all that frequently, so when looking for an installer in places like Billericay and Wickford, you may feel a bit like a deer in the headlights. High quality, energy efficient windows and doors are what you are aiming for, with the potential to save you over £140 per year on heating bills.

    Already have double glazing? How efficient is it?

    Older double glazing can suffer from condensation between panes, leaks, draughts, cracks and chips. Wear and tear means inferior performance, that may cost £££s as well as making your home less comfortable. If your double glazed windows need replacing you will need a professional and reliable company to perform the work.

    Windows which have a British Fenestration Ratings Council [BFRC] rating are a wise choice, according to the Energy Saving Trust. With this system windows are rated from A-G depending on how thermally effective they are. Beware though as some companies claim that their windows are A rated, yet they are simply using their own company rating system rather than the approved BFRC one. So these systems may in fact be B or C rated or lower.

    Another important thing to check with any glazing company you are considering, is whether or not they are FENSA registered. This is the Competent Persons Scheme authorised by the government, relating to the replacement of windows, doors and roof lights within the UK. A FENSA registered company like Essex Trade Windows Ltd, not only gives peace of mind, but offers the customer greater protection. Always check on the FENSA website that the company is actually registered as some have been known to make false claims. Essex Trade Windows also install the exceptional quality, award winning Optima range of Profile 22 windows, which have a long list of advantages including A++ ratings and Secured By Design Approval.
