With the rising cost of fuel, not to mention reducing your carbon footprint, the
issue of energy efficiency is an important factor to consider when improving your
property. All of our windows have very good thermal insulation properties which can
help reduce heating bills. By retaining heat for longer within your property, heating
times can be cut -
REHAU window systems are unrivalled in quality, technological innovation and exceptional design – bringing you all the benefits of modern uPVC doors and windows, not only low maintenance, enhanced security but also superior energy efficiency.
The amount of heat that is lost through your window is measured by it’s U Value. The lower the value the better. Typical U values for older, wooden, single glazed windows can be as high as 5 or 6 W/m2K. Even PVC windows with double glazing that are 10 years old can have U values of 3 W/m2K.
Chosen View windows have a maximum U value of 1.6 W/m2K as standard -
Additionally, we can offer upgrades to improve this further -
Window Energy Ratings (WER) is a means of showing how energy efficient your window
is by providing information on the amount of heat loss, solar heat gain and air loss
your window provides and is shown by an energy rating label, similar to those seen
on fridges and washing machines. This label will provide a rating on a scale of A-
All of our windows can achieve an A rating with the appropriate glass.
It is, however,important to understand how the energy rating has been achieved. Certain
windows on the market achieve A ratings by having large amounts of solar heat gain
Chosen View can advise on the best window for your home to give you the optimum in energy efficiency.
Window Energy Ratings show the performance of the window by displaying the Energy
Rating Rainbow logo with a rating from A -
