Energy Efficiency

At Genesis Windows we aim to save you money whilst helping the environment.

You only need to look at the facts to appreciate the significance of energy efficient windows and doors. Between 5 and 10 per cent of heat can be lost through poorly fitting single glazed windows and a further 15 per cent through sub-standard doors. In older properties this can be as high as 50 per cent.

The generation of the energy we use to heat, light and cool our buildings represents almost half of the carbon dioxide emissions in the UK. Energy efficient buildings (that is those with features such as double glazing that help keep heat in) save fossil fuels for future generations and help to reduce pollution that damages the ozone layer. As to saving money, research shows that a single glazed window loses energy at a rate of -198 kWh/m2 per year. Assuming electricity costs around 11p per kWh, and that the average house has eight square metres of glass, double glazing could save home owners around £167 per year.

Our windows, doors and conservatories help keep fuel bills down and the rain and draughts out. They boast excellent heat insulation features including snug fitting seals and Pilkington low emissivity, or low E glass - a special glass with an invisible, heat reflective coating that makes it more energy efficient.

All our products comply with Document L (Building Regulations) so offer good thermal performance with a low U value rating of 1.8. As a guide, the lower the U-value, the lower the amount of heat lost and the lower the amount of energy wasted. The U value of single clear glass is 5.4 and of an ordinary double glazing unit is 2.6.

To improve energy efficiency even further, we fit as standard 20mm cavaties to make a maximum 4.20.4 unit.
