Reduce your heating bills while staying warmer in winter

Energy Saving for Period Homes

In 2017 we were involved in a study which compared one of our refurbished windows with an Historic England refurbished window. The study states the following: ‘WARM Low Energy Building Practice carried out an air test on a Mitchell & Dickinson refurbished window in Exeter. This achieved an air leakage of just 9m3/hr at 50 pascals, a significant improvement on a window refurbished by Historic England, which was reported to have achieved 26m3/hr at the same pressure differential.’

Energy efficiency

Energy efficiency is hugely important to us; our founder Mukti Mitchell is well known for his work encouraging people to lead a low carbon lifestyle, and sustainability and environmental responsibility is a cornerstone of the Mitchell & Dickinson values.

We can’t afford to keep using the world’s limited fossil fuels at the current rate, for the sake of our planet and our wallets. That’s why we’ve devised a package of window, draught and loft insulation solutions for period and listed properties that reduces heat loss by around one third. Our CosyGlazing Secondary Glazing has been designed to improve the energy efficiency of existing windows and reduces heat loss from single glazed windows by 70 per cent.

Reduce your bills

Energy costs for an average UK  household have soared by 72% since 2021 and are predicted to remain high in the long term. Energy bills in 2024 for a 4-5 bedroomed house is £2,400 according to British Gas. If prices rise by 10% per year that cost will increase to over £6,000 per annum by 2034.

Our package of window, draught and loft insulation costs between £3,000 and £5,000 for the average British home, meaning it usually pays for itself within 4-8 years, representing a financial return of 15-25% per year.
