Heavers tops the green list with Dorset’s first energy saving ‘A’
Local home improvements manufacturer Heavers of Bridport Ltd has become the first company in Dorset to be awarded an ‘A’ label in the Government-backed Window Energy Rating Scheme – the highest band possible for an energy-saving window.
The label, similar to those found on new fridges and freezers, was awarded by the British Fenestration Ratings Council after thorough examination of Heavers’ specification.
The ratings are for casement type windows. “People are taking energy consumption more seriously than ever nowadays,” said Malcolm Heaver, MD of the family-run company, which is also a founder member of the trade organisation, Network VEKA. “And the windows of our homes are a way that everyone can make a real difference with just a little thought – and make significant savings on their fuel bills too.”
Heavers now qualifies to display the Energy Rating Scheme label, with its familiar letter and colour coding.
