>Changes to Building Regulations

Changes to Building Regulations

On the 1st October 2010, New Building Regulations Part L states that replacement casement windows will be required to achieve a window energy rating of at least a C or a whole window (not centre pane) U-value of 1.6W/m2k. All Wickes windows exceed this standard.

Window Energy Rating Certificate

Window energy ratings (WER's) are becoming increasingly important, with the Government now inforcing minimum standards of performance. This improvement in energy rating will provide you with reduced utility bills, a warmer home and insulation against unwanted outside noise all whilst helping to protect the environment.

The WER system uses a simple A-G ratings guide similar to the ones you might have seen on domestic goods like washing machines and dishwashers. This label displays the rating alongside other important information such as the U-value of the product and effective air leakage. All of our uPVC windows are A rated and available to buy online and in store.
