Several years ago, mainly for reasons of cost, we opted to replace our windows with PVC-U units.

What troubled me subsequently was discovering that this was not considered an eco option, despite them being airtight fits with double-glazing, etc, and hence making a big difference to our insulation and heating needs.

The cost factor was against other options such as wood, which sadly were in the realms of funny money.

As a key component in our homes, I think this material deserves a category of its own to track the latest news and views.


PRW - PVC-U windows win green rating - A positive, it would seem, and my reason for kicking off this rating as I'd been feeling bad about my choices.
