Pilkington energiKare can reduce heat loss by up to 90%

Plkington energiKare "Energy Efficient Glazing"According to an article on the Greenbuild News Website entitled “Energy efficiency grows in importance“, research from glass manufacturer Pilkington has found that 76% of homebuyers believe energy efficiency is a key consideration when deciding whether or not to buy a property. But according to the article only 27% of these would actually know how to judge a home’s energy efficiency.

Greenbuild News states that “Architect and TV presenter George Clarke is working with Pilkington to highlight the benefits of energy-efficient glazing, which can mean significantly lower energy bills. Replacing single with double glazing can save over £400 a year in fuel, while insulating your pipework and loft could save householders a further £150 a year.”

Pilkington’s Julia Berkin said: â€ŔIt’s reassuring that energy efficiency is creeping up the wish-list of key considerations for house buyers, particularly as simple steps like turning down your thermostat and fitting energy-saving light bulbs, can really make a difference to energy bills. Installing Pilkington energiKare glazing, for example, can reduce heat loss by up to 90%, compared to single-glazed windows — it also features solar control properties, keeping homeowners cooler in summer and snug during winter.”

The Pilkington Glass survey also found that garden size (64%), attractive exterior paintwork (53%), the appearance of neighbours’ houses (52%) and the state of a property’s windows (51%) were the top four factors that contributed towards a positive first impression when looking for a new property.
