Energy Efficiency

Gain Free Solar Heat

Our energy efficient windows have a dual functionality that allows you to gain free solar energy from our greatest natural resource; the sun.

The tight weatherseals of the windows prevent cold wind and rain from entering your property whilst the glass allows natural free energy from the sun to enter and heat your home.

The glass of the windows has a transparent metallic coating that reflects heat back inside, retaining warmth and reducing the amount of energy needed to heat your home. Put simply, saving energy can save you money!

Cheaper Heating Bills

Our windows are capable of achieving an A+12 energy rating. This means your windows would retain an additional 12 kWh per m² each year over a standard A+0 rated window.

Compared with C rated windows you would save enough energy per year to run a full size A++ fridge freezer constantly and do a 2kg load of washing every other day for a year!

(Based on a property with 10 windows, each 1m². All assumptions provided by information available from www.carbonfootprint.com and www.energysavingtrust.org.uk).

British Fenestration Rating Council (BFRC)

In 2004 Window Energy Ratings (WER) were introduced by the BFRC (British Fenestration Rating Council) in order to simplify the method of comparing the energy efficiency of windows.

The energy rating of the window, described as a letter from A (best) to G (worst), is determined by the amount of energy the product will either lose or supply to the property over the course of a year. The BFRC runs the Window Energy Ratings (WER) scheme. We are proud to say that our energy efficient uPVC windows are all BFRC approved.

The WER system uses a rainbow coloured scale to show the energy efficiency a window provides. Our windows are capable of achieving an A+12 rating, the highest level of energy efficiency

Energy Saving Trust Recommended

The Double Glazing Network use an Energy Saving Trust certified manufacturer of uPVC windows. Therefore all of our Liniar products are Energy Saving Trust Recommended and therefore endorsed to use the “recommended” logo.
