Keeping Warm with Wooden Windows

There is yet more doom and gloom in the news with fuel prices set to rise for what feels like the 100th year in a row. Fuel prices are a constant source of concern for most people as it makes what is already an expensive time of year, with Christmas coming up and school holidays, even more so.

Ensuring your home is properly insulated is not just a great way of saving on your fuel bill this year, by keeping the cold out and the warm in, but it is also an investment as it means that next year, you’re ready for next year and the year after.

It’s also a long-term investment, as new or well insulated are a very desirable asset for those looking to buy a property in the future.

There is a wide choice when it comes to new windows and as well as choices in design, size and style, there is also a wide range of materials to pick from.

A modern trend has always been PVC and even some metals that are resistant to the elements such as aluminium, as these are seen as more secure and have previously been the main ones that offer double glazing.

This might have put off those with more period, older properties from getting new windows or choosing a modern kind that could save them money in fuel bills, or those that prefer a more traditional look for their property.

However, these days you don’t have to compromise on your personal preferences or fuel efficiency, as most kinds of wooden windows can now come with double glazing, so you really can stay warm this winter, as well as save money, with wooden windows.

Wooden windows, if anything, can keep you even warmer than other materials. Metals such as aluminium are harder to warm and naturally cool to the touch, whereas wood is a natural and room temperature material that holds the warmth in. This means even less heating is needed to keep the heat in your property.
