Energy efficiency is one of the buzz terms of the 21st Century and rightly so. We will eventually run out of natural resources, this is the reason governments across the globe are looking at ways to reduce our carbon footprints. We can do our bit by using less in the home and by investing in more energy efficient products.

The combination of carefully selected materials, expert process and careful waste disposal make Flair products among the most energy efficient and environmentally friendly on the market..

The thermal image of the house above, shows the green areas (top left) where old windows have been replaced with modern energy efficient ones, in contrast to the old existing windows shown in magenta, which let considerable heat out of the home.

The images to the right above show the warm edge effect of  SWISSPACER. The dark blue areas showing reduced temperature or up to 5.3° when standard spacers are used.

Each window rated by the BFRC has a unique label. This label will display the following information:

1. The rating level – A, B, C, etc…

2. The energy rating eg. -3kWh/(m²·K) in this example the product will lose 3 KW hrs per square metre per year.

3. The window U value eg. 1.4W/(m²·K)

4. The effective heat loss due to air penetration as L eg. 0.01 W/(m²·K)

5. The solar heat gain eg. g=0.43

Simply put this will determine how well a product will perform the functions of:

* Helping you contain and conserve heat within your building in the winter

* Keep out the wind

* Resist condensation

* Contribute to improved sound insulation

What Does the Energy Efficient Window Ratings Label Tell You?

The BFRC Scheme is the UK’s national system for rating the energy efficiency of windows and is recognised within the Building Regulations as a method to show compliance for your replacement windows installation.

Window Energy Ratings use a consumer-friendly traffic-light style A-E ratings guide similar to that used on ‘white’ goods (such as fridges, freezers, washing machines etc…). This ratings label can be used by you to make more informed choices about the energy efficiency of the windows you are looking to purchase.

With carbon emissions high on the global agenda and the current high cost of fuel, we are all looking for ways to make our homes more energy efficient.

So exactly what are Energy Efficient Windows? They are windows that help to contain and conserve heat within the home keeping out wind and rain, resisting condensation and yet allowing natural “free” energy - the warmth of the sun - to heat the home. They can be made using any frame material - aluminium, PVC-U, steel or timber or even a combination of materials.
