The Glass and Glazing Federation (GGF) is once again flying the flag for a greener future with the help of its online support Hub for homeowners, MyGlazing.com. With a dedicated environmental section, MyGlazing is a valuable resource for GGF members to use with consumers that are looking for more reassurance, support, and advice on sustainability.
“In an era of rising energy bills and increasing pressure to reduce our carbon footprint, it has never been more important to improve the energy efficiency of our homes,” says Anda Gregory, Chief Development Officer at the GGF. “But even the most eco conscious consumers don’t always know the best course of action to take when it comes to home improvements. This is precisely why we created a comprehensive objective third party resource for GGF members to use with their customers.
“The MyGlazing website offers homeowners a whole host of information about buying new home improvement products, but the environmental hub on the site is a dedicated section to give consumers advice and guidance on how to reduce their carbon footprint, lower fuel bills, save money, and increase the value of their property.
“Our easy-to-use Energy Savings Calculator can also be found in the environmental hub and allows homeowners to calculate how much energy, and money, they could save by upgrading their windows. The tool asks for the type of property they live in, type of windows currently in place, and the type of window likely to be installed, before it works out the savings for that specific project.
“Homeowners can find all kinds of articles on the hub, from advice on recycling and eco-friendly tips to implement in daily life, to how to reduce their carbon footprint. The aim of MyGlazing.com is to help homeowners nationwide to become more sustainable, but it is also a valuable tool for our members to use when selling in the home.”
