Keep Your Frames — Change Your Glass
One of the simplest and easiest ways to improve the heat retention of older homes is to change the glass in the existing window frames. Many older double-glazed units do not contain low-emissivity (low-e) glass or inert gases and therefore are not energy efficient. By replacing your old inefficient existing window glass with our Low-E Plus glazing will make your windows as efficient as triple glazing, making your home much warmer and comfortable.
NEW Fineo Vacuum Glazing — Maximum Comfort for Period Homes
Easily retrofitted into existing timber window frames, ultra-thin Fineo affords period and heritage homes the opportunity to enjoy modern warmth and comfort, without impacting their outward appearance.
A mere 6.7mm in depth, Fineo’s amazing thermal performance is 8 times better than single glazing, 42% more efficient than double-glazing, and, incredibly, offers a 12.5% improvement on triple glazing. And with its superior light transmission, you also enjoy a lighter, brighter home.
High Thermal Performance — New Windows And Doors
Energlaze high-performance windows and doors deliver market leading thermal efficiency as well as the latest high-security features. Our range includes new uPVC casement and flush casement windows, composite front doors, sliding and french doors offering superior design, security and energy efficiency. For larger sliding and bifold doors we recommend our Aluminium range.
Capture The Sun. Power Your Home.
Power your home with free electricity from solar PV panels. Installing solar PV will help reduce your dependency on fossil fuels. As a renewable source of energy, solar PV panels will not only reduce your electricity bills, but also your carbon footprint. Energlaze is an SEAI approved installer ensuring that you will qualify for up to €3000 in grants
Insulate for a Warmer, More Energy-Efficient Home
According to the SEAI the best way to make homes more energy efficient and sustainable is to improve the insulation. Energlaze installs the latest in insulation technology from external and cavity wall insulation to attic spray foam and roll out insulation. Not only will your home be warmer you will also significantly reduce energy bills and you can avail of up to €6500 in SEAI grants and Bord Gáis Energy energy credits.
Create a Low Carbon Home With our Heat Pumps
Heat pumps are an environmentally friendly and extremely efficient alternative to oil, gas, solid fuel and conventional home heating systems. Heat pumps work by converting energy from the air outside of your home into useful heat inside, in the same way a fridge extracts heat from its inside.
Heat pumps are a major source of renewable energy for Irish homes, and after 2025, will replace oil and gas boilers as the primary heating source for retrofitting older homes. By installing a Heat Pump you can avail of up to €4000 in SEAI grants and Bord Gáis Energy energy credits.
How to improve your home’s BER
Improving the Building Energy Rating (BER) of your home can make it warmer, reduce your energy and heating costs, and even increase the resale value. For multiple upgrades Energlaze advise that customers commission a Technical BER report that will produce a BER Certificate, determine the over heat loss index, establish its suitability for a Heat pump and further recommend the correct sequence of upgrades to achieve a B2 Rating or better.
By 2030 Ireland's Climate Action Plan Sets Out To..
Retrofit 500,000 homes to an equivalent B2 BER
Allow homeowners to sell excess energy back to the grid
Phase out the burning of fossil fuels like coal and peat
Increase the amount of electric vehicles to one million
