Why Choose Vacuum Glazing? 

 Housing associations and housing trusts manage a diverse range of residential properties, and ensuring energy efficiency is paramount. Vacuum Glazing (VG) offers an exceptional opportunity to rejuvenate these properties, providing sustainable, cost-effective, and comfortable solutions for various applications. 

 Benefits of Vacuum Glazing: 

  • Enhanced Thermal Insulation: Many of the housing properties under the management of housing associations were built during the post-war construction boom and suffer from poor thermal insulation. VG offers a cutting-edge solution by providing superior insulation properties that significantly reduce heat transfer, ensuring warmth in winter and coolness in summer. 
  • Cost Savings: Installing VG in your housing properties can lead to substantial cost savings by minimizing heat loss in the winter and heat gain in the summer, thereby reducing both heating and cooling costs. 
  • Energy Performance Compliance: Compliance with Energy Performance Regulations (EPC ratings) is essential for rental properties. VG helps exceed the required energy efficiency standards, ensuring your properties meet regulatory requirements and minimize environmental impact. 
  • Environmental Responsibility: As housing associations align with the government’s Net Zero policy, VG plays a pivotal role in reducing carbon emissions. Its exceptional insulating properties contribute to a greener future by reducing energy consumption and promoting sustainable practices.

Vacuum Glazing is an ideal solution for housing managed by housing associations, offering numerous benefits to both residents and property owners. By upgrading windows in social housing and rental properties with Vacuum Glazing, you can enhance thermal comfort, reduce energy consumption, and lower heating costs. The advanced insulation properties of VG combat heat loss during winter months and minimize heat gain in the summer, ensuring a stable and pleasant indoor environment for residents. Improved energy efficiency leads to more sustainable housing units, contributing to reduced carbon emissions and supporting environmental initiatives.

2. Public Buildings

Housing associations are often responsible for managing public buildings, including offices, community centres, libraries, and recreational facilities. These buildings have high energy demands and require efficient insulation solutions to maintain comfortable indoor conditions while minimizing energy consumption. Vacuum Glazing is an excellent choice for public buildings, offering exceptional thermal insulation and helping regulate indoor temperatures effectively. Installing Vacuum Glazing reduces heating and cooling costs, creates a more environmentally friendly infrastructure, and provides occupants with a comfortable and energy-efficient space. 

3. Educational Institutions 

Schools and universities

Educational buildings play a vital role in the community, providing a conducive learning environment for students. Vacuum Glazing is particularly advantageous for schools due to its ability to enhance thermal insulation and create a comfortable atmosphere conducive to learning. With Vacuum Glazing, schools can reduce heat loss during colder months, maintain stable indoor temperatures, and minimize the need for excessive heating. By implementing this energy-efficient solution, housing associations can create a more sustainable and cost-effective learning environment, ensuring that students and teachers can focus on education without unnecessary energy expenses.
