When you let the light in with a House of Surrey conservatory you do more than add another room to your home. Mainly due to the ever increasing demands for more energy efficient glazing, technology for conservatories is advancing fast. Here's how a carefully chosen conservatory could help you keep cash in your pocket - with the added bonus of a good feeling from being eco friendly.
As you'd expect, the uPVC double-glazed windows and doors in your new House of Surrey conservatory can be supplied with the latest energy-rated gas-filled window systems - with BFRC ratings from a highly-commendable 'C' to the top 'A' rating. With home fuel prices set to keep rising, it makes sense to fight back with the latest technology and make home improvements that will help keep each gas and electricity bill down.
From 1 October 2010 all windows must have a Thermal Transmittance (U Value) of 1.6 W/m2.K or lower (i.e. Window Energy Rating 'C' or higher); doors must have a value of 1.8 W/m2.K. Look out for the reassuring BFRC energy efficiency labels on your House of Surrey conservatory.

As well as giving a better view than polycarbonate, House of Surrey conservatory glazing gives improved solar control for a more comfortable living environment.

What conservatory features and benefits will be most important for your home? Choosing the right energy-efficient conservatory, windows and doors means more than just achieving an excellent U rating. Style and practicality matter too, so your House of Surrey conservatory will perfectly complement your family's lifestyle.
