Home improvement

| No Comments

The past few days I've been thinking about doing some home improvement, or rather, have some done. When I - well, back then it was still "we" - bought this place the glazing was single glass in aluminum profiles. It keeps the wind and rain out, but that's about it. Since double glazing offers more comfort and a better insulation, I've been considering replacing the old windows with new ones. However, if I do so, I'd not go for the regular glass, but HR+ (or HR++) glass with a U value of less than 1.1 W/m².K if possible. I'm aware that there are a lot of grants available from energy suppliers, the federal government, as well as tax cuts, so today I'll invest a day to look up possibilities and gather all documents, requirements and such.

Then tomorrow I'll call and mail some companies to get a price quote to have it all replaced. When all offers are in, I'll decide what to get and where to get it.
