As we find ourselves in the middle of a cost of living crisis with energy costs going through the roof. There has never been a better time to take a look at some energy saving measures for your home.
Replacing your existing windows and doors are one of the solutions for keeping the heat in and your bills down.
As standard, every Sapphire Windows uPVC window has an energy rating of A + rated.
The building regulations state that replacement glazing must have a minimum window energy rating of band C.
By incorporating the best performing materials into our products, we ensure that we supply the very best in terms of energy efficiency and thermal performance, far exceeding the minimum standards imposed.
By doing so will help keep your home well insulated and your energy bills kept low.
All our products also have high security locking devices with full multiplying locking systems as standard. You can feel confident that your new windows and doors will keep your home warm as well as safe & secure.
One of the most cost effective ways of saving energy is by replacing poorly insulated windows, and at Sapphire, all our uPVC windows are made with high-quality Deceuninck profile, which offers excellent thermal insulation.

Environmental sustainability is extremely important to us.
One of the many reasons we choose to use the Deceuninck profile is because of Deceuninck’s commitment to using recycled windows & doors. Our windows and doors are designed to be 100% recyclable.
By using Sapphire Windows, you can be assured that your existing windows and doors will be recycled, and not sent to landfill.
How sustainable is uPVC? uPVC is highly recyclable, it can be recycled up to 10 times or more, without impacting its material performance.
uPVC window frames also have a reference service life of 35 – 40 years.
This would suggest that each uPVC window which has a service life of 40 years, can be recycled up to 10 times will give a total service life of up to 400 years.
We are often asked our opinion on double glazed or triple glazed windows. Often the choice is dependant on your lifestyle, your home, your plans for staying in your home, and your budget.
