Window scrappage scheme launched by Anglian Home Improvements

Anglian Home Improvements has launched a new window scrappage scheme enabling homeowners to improve the energy efficiency of their homes and get up to £3,000 off when they upgrade to energy saving windows.

From 2nd October 2013, old windows can be traded in for money off Anglian’s A-rated energy saving EcoGain windows, which not only keep draughts out but also trap sunlight to help to heat the home, bringing energy bills down. The advanced technology and attention to detail behind Anglian’s EcoGain windows make them some of the most thermally efficient double glazed windows on the market.

The promotion will run throughout October and November, giving homeowners a chance to upgrade their windows before the worst of the winter. The more windows you replace through the scrappage scheme, the greater the discount.

The average home leaks up to £280 of energy every year, with windows being one of the most problematic areas in terms of energy and heat loss. In fact, a huge 30% of a home’s energy can be lost through inefficient windows and doors, which is particularly disturbing in light of the ever increasing energy prices.

Melanie McDonald, Head of Marketing and Communications at Anglian Home Improvements, says, “Recent figures released by the Department of Energy and Climate Change showed that domestic electricity and gas prices rose by more than 8% in the year to July 2013. With price hikes like these becoming the norm, and with the longer, colder winters we’ve been having in recent years, it’s an ideal time to invest in improving the energy efficiency of the home to keep the cold out and the bills in check.”

Anglian first introduced its Window Scrappage Scheme in 2009, when over 20,000 customers took advantage of the promotion to invest in energy efficient windows. In line with Anglian’s commitment to saving energy, it recycles and reuses the materials from old windows wherever possible, turning them into useful items such as loft insulation and plastic pipes.

With almost 50 years’ experience, Anglian offers an extensive range of home improvement products, including double glazing windows and doors, Rooftrim, conservatories, orangeries, driveways, solar products and garage conversions.
