Promoting Energy Efficient Windows and Doors
Our environment continues to remain a key issue.
The urgency of the subject and for everyone to do something positive, has increased dramatically over the last few years.
The effects we have on our environment is one that is on all our minds at the moment; from global warming to energy consumption.
Progress Windows are always looking at ways we can minimize our impact. Your choice in energy efficient windows and doors, can make a positive impact to both your property and the world around you.
Homeowners are turning to eco-friendly products and want to be kinder to the environment when it comes to improving their home.
Research shows that nearly 30% of all heat lost through uninsulated homes, is via the windows. And this highlights the importance of the double glazing industry to take steps to ensure products are more environmentally-friendly.
At Progress Windows, all our uPVC frames are designed to not only be energy efficient, but also eco-friendly.
Our uPVC frames are manufactured with zero harmful materials such as lead and steel. Because of this, our frames are 100% recyclable at the end of their lifespan.
As a result of the strong durability of our products, steel reinforcement in not necessary. The strength & durability of uPVC windows, means less chance of prematurely needing to replace windows or doors.
uPVC also plays its part in saving the destruction of trees and forests. Generally people have the conception that wood is more natural and therefore must be the more eco-friendly option, but it is not necessarily the case due to sustainability and the management of forests.
There is zero operational waste with our products with 100% of production waste uPVC (around 1200 tonnes a year) being reground and formulated into new products. uPVC decking and fencing for example, is made from 86% recycled material.
By properly insulating your home, you are keeping your house heated in the winter or cooler in the summer for a longer time frame.
