With 2024 approaching and energy prices rising, it is a smart idea to start coming up with ways to improve the energy efficiency of your home. We are here to help you stop making common mistakes that so many of us make that could be losing you money without you even realising. Your home is your safe space, and we understand that it is a top priority to feel comfortable and cosy within it without it costing you a fortune. Highland Homestyle offers a wide range of energy efficient and durable windows and doors that can transform your home; explore our range to find out more.

Do you suffer from cold draughts in your home? 

Cold draughts can be a very frustrating and uncomfortable issue. With the winters lengthening, Highland Homestyle has the solution. Our windows and doors are made to measure and tightly fitted by our expert installers to exactly match the size of your home with no gaps that ensure no warmth escape. Most of our windows and doors come with airtight seals that work by sealing the gap between your window and frame to ensure there is no space for heat to escape or cold air to enter.

Get windows that prevent moisture from entering your home. 

Condensation on the inside of your windows is caused by high levels of moisture within your home; with our tightly fitted and expertly designed windows and doors, we can help prevent high levels of moisture from entering your home. Condensation is a natural occurrence; however, dampness is not. Condensation can be reduced in a few ways, such as opening your windows when cooking and drying your clothing outside. In comparison, dampness can be prevented by fitting tightly sealed windows. Dampness can cause mould and rotting, which isn’t ideal, and if it isn’t sorted, it can become dangerous. Our windows and doors are designed with quality in mind; we aim to make windows and doors that make our customers’ lives easier.

Our uPVC frames come with insulating chambers that slow down changes in temperature to maintain a consistent temperature. With the help of our thick and durable double glazing and insulating chambers within our uPVC frames, you can reduce high levels of moisture from entering your home.

Upgrade to Double Glazing for ultimate energy efficiency

Upgrade your underperforming and outdated glazing with our thick and energy efficient double glazing. If you still have single glazing within your windows, doors or even your conservatory, then this can be the cause of condensation, heat loss, high sound pollution and low security in your home. By upgrading to our robust double glazing products you can take advantage of improved energy efficiency, security and noise pollution. Almost instantly, after your double glazing solution is installed, you will notice the benefits it gives to your home.

Get airtight glazing fitted for no escaping heat.

You can create a cosy and warm space in the gruesome winter months by trapping the warmth you have produced inside and a cool and ventilated home in the summer months by keeping the hot, sweltering heat outside. As you can maintain regular temperatures, your home will be less reliant on your central heating or air conditioning units, which means you can save money on your energy bills and reduce your carbon footprint. 

Fit Triple Glazing for more privacy and safety.

If you’re looking for the ultimate energy efficient home improvement solution, then our triple glazing options are a perfect choice. Triple glazing is an incredible investment due to the massive improvements in energy efficiency, security and noise reduction. You can create a peaceful, private and cosy home that you will feel comfortable and safe within at all times, giving you peace of mind that you and your loved ones are safe no matter the weather or strong forces that it may endure. Whilst double glazing is almost impossible to break, triple glazing is even less likely to break or damage; this is an excellent deterrent to intruders. 

Double and triple glazing is ideal for soundproofing your home. Triple glazing is made up of three layers of thick glazing that trap air bubbles or argon gas in between them that slow down heat transfer, acting as an insulator. Sound works in waves, and they have to travel through the argon gas for you to hear it. Luckily, the argon gas stops this, and along with thick glass panels, you can create a peaceful and quiet space that you can enjoy with your family and friends.
