Woking, Surrey (PRWEB UK) 15 February 2013
Triple glazing sales continue to grow across Woking & Guildford for KJM Windows & Conservatories. As energy prices continue to rise and the long term outlook is this will remain, homeowners are looking for ways to increase the insulation of their homes, triple glazing is providing a cost effective solution. Sales in these products continue to rise on what was a buoyant 2012 for KJM Windows & Conservatories.
Managing Director Mark Pearce commented, "We have continued to roll out more web-pages to target areas across southern England and this has proved very successful. We have targeted towns like Woking & Guildford, up the M3/M4 corridors to include Reading and London. Because triple glazing is over five times more thermally efficient than old single glazed windows and three times that of older double glazing, the choice is a relatively easy one for the home owner. 2012 was a good year for sales despite the tough market conditions, triple glazing was one described as a niche product, but today it is being chosen in about 15% of our window sales. 2013 is already off to a buoyant start. Sales of our comprehensive range of triple glazed products remain very strong and is providing a very strong revenue stream, as consumers are considering removing older, less energy efficient double glazing. We have entered the era of the replacement - replacement market" He continued "Older double glazing can have u-values of around 3.0, whilst 44mm triple glazing can give a whole window u-value of 0.8, this is a much greater level of insulation and over 40% better than the best 'A rated' double glazing available today" The Glass and Glazing Federation energy savings calculator shows that standard 'A' rated double glazed windows could save you over £8000 on your energy bill and save the atmosphere from 25 tonnes of carbon dioxide over the next 20 years
Editors Note: - The U value is the measurement of heat transmission through a material. The U value of a material is a gauge on how well heat passes through the material and the lower the U value, the greater the resistance to heat and therefore has a better insulating value. U-Value is expressed in units of W/m2 and relates to the amount of heat lost in watts (W) per square metre of material.
