Replacement windows and doors
There are no longer any Government-backed schemes directly relating to the replacement of windows and doors. There are however window scrappage schemes available across England, Scotland and Wales.
Scrappage schemes aren’t backed by the government, but they help to set trends for the industry, making products & prices more competitive. The smaller companies can sometimes offer you better and more up-to-date products & prices as they are more adaptable to changes in the market so it is always worth comparing a selection of different companies.
Replacing your Windows & Doors also has a large positive impact on the environment as your home will be more energy efficient. You can expect to save up to £2,800 per year on energy bills, giving you even more reasons to get up-to-date replacements.
Replacement windows and doors are often the first choice people make when it comes to staying warm and saving energy.
In addition to these obvious reasons for double or triple glazing, there are the added benefits of increased security, reduced noise, less condensation, fewer draughts, and not to forget the aesthetic benefit of smart new windows and doors.
Saving energy means saving money and the Energy Saving Trust has estimated the following annual savings where heating is provided by a gas fired boiler in a single glazed property:
|Energy rating||Detached||Semi detached||Mid terrace||Bungalow||Flat|
|A||£120 – £160||£85 – £110||£65 – £90||£55 – £75||£40 – £60|
|B||£110 – £145||£75 – £100||£60 – £80||£50 – £70||£40 – £55|
|C||£110 – £135||£75 – £95||£60 – £75||£50 – £65||£40 – £50|
There are currently no grants or help towards the cost of replacement windows, but many private companies offer scrappage schemes and the opportunity to renew your windows and doors in a very cost efficient manner and with the minimum of fuss.
