It's also worthwhile keeping appraised of breaking news within the window industry, and the leading firms always aim to pass developments on to existing and potential customers alike. Back in June of this year one company commented upon the supposed governmental window scrappage scheme to assure customers that, although no scheme currently existed, a petition had been delivered to the government requesting the introduction of such an initiative. The new coalition government has recently issued a response to this petition which bodes well for homeowners looking to invest in new double glazed sash windows like this specialist's. The government's response was clear; a window scrappage scheme was not cost effective due to the disproportionate cost of grade C windows when compared to the proposed incentive amount, originally set at ￡1000. However there's hope on the horizon; the government pointed signatories to their Green Deal, originally set to come into force later this year. Under new proposals, households (and possibly businesses too) would be awarded up to ￡6,500 for energy efficient home improvements and would then repay this amount using the money saved on heating and energy bills. While the initiative is still being developed by the relevant departments, the government has stated that it intends to list double glazing as one of the measures covered by the plan. If this is the case, then homeowners could look forward to having energy efficient sashes like this stunning range installed using funding from this initiative. The Green Deal comes as part of the coalition's ￡20 billion scheme to improve the energy efficiency of countless domestic dwellings nationwide. While other measures might include loft insulation or more energy efficient doors, the effect on the window industry alone would be striking. The short term benefits to consumers are clear, but a scheme like this would also stimulate a welcome long term increase in the competitiveness of the window industry at large. This particular window expert welcomes any provision that assists homeowners in acquiring high quality windows. They've developed their double glazed sash windows range so that each design combines three integral elements; period beauty, matchless quality and industry leading energy efficiency.
