Despite resolutions to improve the nation's energy infrastructure, London homeowners continue to face rising fuel and electricity prices. This leaves area citizens struggling to find ways of cutting costs in this regard. While higher efficiency appliances can reduce energy consumption, studies reveal an average of 25 percent of a home's heating and cooling efforts is lost through outdated windows. In order to help combat this issue, Ali Moham of — Skylight Fitters has launched a campaign to educate the local public on the potential savings to be gained through new window installations.
Said Moham, "At Skylight Fitters, our primary goal is to solve problems for our customers, one of which happens to be controlling their energy bills. Many are surprised to learn just how much energy is lost through their current old-style windows. Modern options still allow as much light to come into the home as their inefficient counterparts, but they're able to block out a great deal more of the sun's heat during warmer months and keep cold air from filtering through in wintertime."
According to information from the home improvement industry, some recently introduced window models are able to reduce heating and cooling loss by up to 70 percent as compared to older versions. Poland-based roof window manufacturer Fakro is currently considered at the top of this field and has received worldwide acclaim for its combination of durability and performance. Also an industry leader, Danish company Velux produces products approved by building associations, home improvement authorities and efficiency experts around the world.
In addition to lowering energy bills, upgrading windows and implementing high quality skylights, such as a fakro installation, can also improve the value of a home considerably. Improvements of this nature have been said to offer up to a 90 percent return on investment for those ultimately choosing to sell. In the same manner as updating kitchen appliances and incorporating a second washroom, having new windows installed greatly increases a home's selling potential as well.
Moham Concluded, "We're one of only a handful of companies in our area certified to handle Fakro and Velux installation, which is a testament to our high standards of service in its own right. Our business relationships with these companies also entitles us to a significant discount on their products, and we gladly extend the full price reduction to our clients. Through these allowances as well as providing information regarding the energy saving possibilities of having modern windows installed, we hope to better help our community offset growing energy costs."
