Feeling the chill? Your guide to energy-efficient windows and doors.


We’ve been selling and installing replacement doors and windows for over thirty years so naturally you’d expect us to say how good they are at making your home warmer and more energy efficient by reducing your energy bills. But don’t just take our word for it.

Evolution Windows

Those nice people at Ovo Energy have a comprehensive article on their website listing many ways to make your home more thermally efficient.

In answer to the question “How can I reduce the heat lost through windows?” Ovo Energy say “The easy answer is to install double glazing”, but they also offer other useful tips on draught exclusion on letterboxes and key holes on doors, as well as spelling out how much money you can save by installing double-glazing. Ovo Energy also highlight the specialist knowledge required to comply with planning laws covering conservations areas and listed building – expertise that we at County have in-house and are pleased to share with customers free of charge.

We supply a huge range of windows and doors – all guaranteed to make a difference in keeping your home warm and cosy. From PVC, timber and timber-effect through to aluminium we have a style to suit your budget and design aspirations. Visit one of our showrooms to see for yourself or arrange for one of our advisors to visit you.
