Energy efficiency

Concerns for the environment and rising fuel costs have understandably meant more and more people are looking to increase the energy efficiency of their homes, particularly by installing or replacing double glazing.
With a high quality double glazed sealed unit such as the Glevum range, energy savings come from the heat retaining glass and the argon gas contained between the panes, absorbing both heat and noise.

Peace of mind and choice

Double glazed windows are given a WER (Window Energy Rating) on a scale from A – G, just like white goods such as washing machines. Any new windows installed must have be C’ rated or above to be classed as energy efficient and to comply with building regulations. At Glevum, we offer a range of double glazing products rated from ‘C’ to ‘A’ rating, to allow you balance energy efficiency improvements and value. For the ultimate in energy efficiency performance, Glevum now also offer a triple glazing range which has the maximum A++ rating. See here for more on Triple Glazing.

The WER rating also contributes to the EPC (Energy Performance Certificate), the information that sellers are legally obliged to provide to potential buyers. Windows that have been rated ‘energy efficient’ undoubtedly give your home extra sales potential.

Increased Comfort – Reducing condensation

Condensation can be a real problem, particularly if your current home does not have double glazing or units that need to be replaced. It is caused by several factors depending on your property, but well-fitted high-quality double glazing can help significantly.

Condensation occurs when moisture build up ‘condenses’ on the nearest coldest surface – an uninsulated window pane. A double-glazed window acts as an insulator, increasing the surface temperature of the glass so condensation does not form. Well-fitted double glazed doors and windows also increases the general warmth in the house which reduces the incidences of condensation.

Installing high specification sealed units from Glevum can really improve day to day living for all the family if condensation has been a concern for your health or home.

Ventilation

An adequate air flow through the home is also important to reduce condensation and make your whole home feel more comfortable in all weathers. Ask our Glevum design consultant about our ‘trickle vent’ feature.

Satisfied Customers

"I am very happy from start to finish with Glevum and would not consider going anywhere else for windows and doors and I would highly recommend."

K Turnbull (Cheltenham) - Jan'22

"Very professional, efficient and friendly from start to finish. Product is top quality. Installers were superb and went above and beyond what I expected. Very happy with the end result and cannot believe the difference in respect of reduced noise inside the house and insulation properties. This is the 2nd house that I have used Glevum on and would have no hesitation in using again in future.!"

I Davies (Yorkley) - Dec'21

"I have been delighted with all aspects of Glevum Windows. They were tremendously helpful in helping and advising me on choosing the best style of window to suit my old property. The appointment to fit the windows and door was prompt. The installers, Danny and Damion were exceptional. They were quiet, very very tidy, I no mess to clear up, and so pleasant. Glevum were so professional from the start, and I would recommend always. Thank you!"

"Friendly, professional, helpful, they didn’t try to sell me stuff I didn’t need. The installers were lovely, respectful, friendly, cleared up after themselves, and were a pleasure to have here. Would definitely recommend them although they could do with some singing lessons!!!"
