For homeowners considering renovating or redecorating their homes, it is becoming increasingly important to consider that their home is not only cosy and comfortable but also eco-friendly.

For homeowners considering renovating or redecorating their homes, it is becoming increasingly important to consider that their home is not only cosy and comfortable but also eco-friendly, as this can not only help to reduce your carbon footprint but also save you time and money.

Perhaps the most obvious way to reduce the amount of energy used throughout your home is to consider whether your windows are properly glazed to prevent drafts and energy leaving your home. 

With this in mind, the Pilkington K Glass™ & Pilkington Optitherm™ ranges include high performance thermally insulating glass which, help reduce the amount of heat escaping from rooms by reflecting it back in – helping to reduce fuel bills ,and making your home more energy efficient.

Pilkington Suncool™ One offers solar control properties with the added benefit of thermal insulation, thereby helping homeowners maintain a comfortable indoor temperature all year around, whilst still having design freedom & flexibility Pilkington Suncool™ One is the ideal solution where large expanses of glass are used and perfect for bi-folding doors. 

When it comes to older properties, loss of heat and damp caused as a result of traditional single pane windows and older designs is fairly common. Pilkington Spacia™ is the perfect solution to combat these issues, as it’s vacuum glazing technology provides unrivalled thermal performance. It helps reduce energy loss, all while retaining the aesthetics, history and heritage in older properties.

While it may be unsurprising that poor glazing can result in an increase in energy usage through the home, there are other considerations to take into account when researching which glass can help make your home more eco-friendly.

Pilkington Activ™ is the world’s first dual action, self-cleaning glass, with a unique coating which gradually breaks down and loosens dirt as it builds, allowing rainfall to wash residue away. Not only will this save you time on washing your windows, it will also reduce the amount of chemicals that are used when washing windows, which will also benefit the environment, particularly when used on large-scale buildings.

It’s no longer necessary to sacrifice comfort, aesthetics or contemporary design in order to achieve an eco-friendly home. By making small, simple changes to things such as glazing, you can help to create a more sustainable, eco-friendly home that’s better for you and the environment.
