Double glazing Stevenage

Environmental considerations have rightly become a hot topic lately, as none of us would want our lifestyle to ruin the world we live in. The cars we drive, the food we buy and the holidays we take must all come in for consideration. And not only how we live, but also where we live – the houses which are our homes, as well as the localities in which we build them – also have a large impact on whether we are helping or hindering the cause of protecting our planet.
In order to influence the choices people make to be more sound in this regard, governments have tried many schemes which they believe will lead to less consumption of materials and energy, as well as less waste and harmful emissions. Established energy saving measures such as double glazing have become compulsory, and systems of monitoring the energy performance of entire properties have been introduced.
The first time most of us come across these control measures will be when we try to buy, rent, sell or let a home or other premises. When any such transaction occurs, the building must undergo an energy assessment which rates it based on how environmentally favourable it will be during day to day running. If you own a home or a business property, what can you do to boost the ratings of your investment in order to increase its value and make it a better place to live?
