Energy-efficient windows could result in cheap gas bills

Between 1 July 2019 and 31 December 2019, at least 10% of people who switched energy supplier for both gas & electricity with Uswitch saved £479 or more.

Consumers should get energy-efficient windows if they want to enjoy cheap gas bills.

This is advice given by the British Fenestration Rating Council (BFRC), which says that people are losing hundreds of pounds every year thanks to heat being lost through windows.

Director for technical affairs Giles Willson said it is impossible to give a single standard price for energy-efficient windows, as all homes are different.

But he noted that since windows last for about 30 to 35 years, people will find they make savings after the initial investment.

He suggested those looking to get cheap gas bills should log on to the BFRC's website to look at the carbon calculator.

According to BFRC data, people in single-glazed houses who install energy-efficient windows could cut their carbon emissions by a fifth.

This could result in a £470 saving on their energy costs in a year.
