Did you know that up to 35% of the house’s heat can leak through poorly insulated windows? Here we go through the reasons and what you can do about it.
Winter is the coldest time of the year, and historically rising electricity prices have made it expensive to heat the home. We all know that windows let in beautiful light, but when it’s cold outside, bad and old windows also let out a lot of heat. Up to 35% of the house’s heat can leak through poorly insulated windows. With new windows, you can get an improved indoor climate.
Cold floors can be caused by bad windows
If you have cold floors at home, it could be due to bad windows. It is called a cold race. The inner glass of the window becomes cold due to poor insulation and causes the air closest to the window to cool down and fall to the floor. New air comes from above and replaces the cold air that has fallen, and you’ve got a movement that contributes to both a cold floor and an unpleasant draft in the room.
Energy-labelled windows make a big difference
Replacing old and poorly insulated windows can make a big difference to your heating costs but also to your indoor climate. In addition, replacing your old windows with some of our energy windows with extra good insulation makes the difference even bigger. It is an investment that pays off in the long run.

Keep an eye on the u-value when changing windows
U-value is a measure of a window’s insulating ability and indicates how much heat passes at a certain temperature. The lower the U-value, the better the insulating ability of the window. In other words, choosing energy windows with a low U-value is wise if you want to save energy and have a pleasant indoor climate. All our windows are of the highest quality and have very good U-values.
An investment with many advantages
Replacing windows is a big investment, but it also gives you a lot:
Lower energy costs – All our windows emit very little heat, which means that the need for heating is reduced.
Increases the value of the house – New windows are a good investment that increases the value of your house.
