Cairngorm Windows, planning today, saving tomorrow!
By installing our A Rated Windows, the average UK home could save money on their fuel bills, and save as much as 1704kg of CO2 per year, the equivalent of taking a Ford Mondeo off the road for a year! Even our C rated windows could offset your carbon footprint by 852kg, that's as much as not running a Ford Fiesta for a year (based upon an average mileage of 12,000 per year).
Why not see how much you could save by trying the Glass & Glazing Federation's carbon calculator.
Is PVC Sustainable?
Yes! The first PVC windows that were fitted in the UK are now over 40 years old & still going strong! A PVC window can be recycled & remade 10 times without losing any of the quality. A window made today could still be around in 400 years time! So the windows you buy today could also be used by your great, great, great, great, great, great, great, Grandchildren!
