We have launched an innovative and unique energy savings calculator in conjunction with one of our key Suppliers, Profine. The energy savings calculator enables consumers and specifiers to estimate the cost and carbon dioxide savings of installing certain types of window including 58mm, 70mm and 88mm frames.
Much has been talked about the potential costs savings of new windows in the Irish and European markets, not just replacing old draughty single glazed timber windows, but also older first generation PVCu ones. Given the fact that most companies are all claiming various degrees of ‘econess’ the carbon saving element of the calculator is an interesting and valuable statistic.
The energy savings calculator takes into account the total window surface area, type of windows to be replaced, proposed new windows and estimates their ‘U’ value. Once this has been established then you can input your choice of heating material used and the price per kilowatt, the calculator then adds a nominal annual price increase. The results are then calculated showing the savings in year one in terms of money and carbon dioxide reductions and this is then extrapolated over 20 years.
