A prize win of Pilkington energiKare™ glazing has allowed Manchester couple Clare Schofield and Adam Tregaskis to drop their home heating thermostat setting to just 16 deg C - and still stay warm.

Clare and Adam are the winners of Real Homes magazine's December competition to find the UK's most energy-conscious couple.The catalogue of improvements which they carried out to their draughty 1930s home was described as "inspirational" by the magazine and has won them the title Pilkington energiKare™ Family 2010.
Since moving into their home three years ago, the couple have installed a modern condensing combination boiler and an open fire to use wood prunings from their large garden. They have also used thermal paper and thermal dry-lining on the walls, caulked all the floorboards and filled their shallow loft with as much insulation as it would hold.
Now their efforts have been crowned by fully installed Zenith Staybright Mk10 windows throughout their home, fitted with Pilkington energiKare double-glazing, which utilises Pilkington OptiWhite™ for the external pane and Pilkington K Glass™ for the internal layer, allowing more heat in from the sun and reducing heat loss by up to 90% compared to single-glazing.
"Our new windows are fantastic," said Clare. "We are absolutely thrilled with the difference it has made to our home."
