Why Aluminium Windows & Doors Are Eco Friendly

Choosing new windows and doors for your property can be a tricky task as there are so many aspects to consider.

As well as things like design, colour and cost, there’s also the environmental aspect to consider too.

With growing concerns surrounding the future of our planet, and how we can make more sustainable choices, this is now a key part of the decision process.

As a result, Aluminium doors and windows are quickly becoming the must-have addition to homes of all sizes up and down the country and with good reason.

Not only is aluminium durable, hard-wearing and versatile, but it is also extremely eco-friendly at the same time – here’s why.


They’re Built to Last

Compared to the steel or timber used in more traditional installations, aluminium is virtually maintenance free, making it the natural choice when it comes to exterior doors and windows.

That means they can last much longer than alternatives, sometimes as much as 50% more than alternative products that are on the market.

And seeing as they will not need to be replaced for some time, possibly even up to 40 years, not only will you save money on replacements or maintenance, but you’ll also reduce your household carbon footprint too.


They’re Energy Efficient

Aluminium’s composition means that it is a natural insulator, keeping out the cold and maintain warmth in the winter while retaining a cooler environment in the summer months.

As a result, Aluminium windows and doors reduce heat transmission, helping to create a more efficient and cost-effective building making them one of the most energy efficient products on the market.

So as well as ensuring a comfortable environment, you should also see a reduction in your utility bills each month too.


They’re Recyclable

Not only will aluminium windows and doors help to greatly reduce your carbon footprint but they are also 100% recyclable too.

That’s due to the fact that it’s easy to mine and manufacture with limited environmental impact, unlike timber, that must be sustainably sourced or even UPVC – which is limited in terms of how many times it can be reused.

Recycling aluminium saves around 95% of the energy needed to make the metal from raw materials and it can be melted down and reformed without losing any quality, a process that can be repeated over and over again.
