The latest high performance, maintenance free, PVC-U windows will keep you warmer in winter and cooler in summer, making your home feel comfortable all year round. With sky rocketing energy prices, they’ll cut your fuel bills and carbon footprint too.
All Live In Design windows are Energy “A” Rated as standard, the highest official energy rating in the UK, as endorsed by the British Fenestration Ratings Council. Live In Design double glazed units are manufactured in the UK using the world leading Pilkington “K” high performance, energy efficient glass.
As an approved manufacturer of certified Energy Rated Windows & Doors, Live In Design has exclusive access to U-Comply, which is audited and approved by Certass, Fensa and the British Standards Institute. This allows Live In Design to demonstrate thermal performance compliance on every single window and door.
Legislation is in place that states that from October 2010, windows installed into existing dwellings need to comply with Approved Document Part L of the Building Regulations. In order to comply the installed products need to achieve a Window Energy Rating Band of C or above and/or achieve an overall U value of 1.6 W/m2k. The Window Installation Company must be able to demonstrate compliance by having its own Window Energy Rating Certification.
Our recently awarded BSI Certification, which details our full range of energy rated windows, a copy of our BSI window energy rating labels for both our double glazed windows and our triple glazed windows and our Pilkington EnergiKare certification within every written quotation that you receive from us.
