Does your home suffer from poor light and a gloomy ambiance, even during those bright, warm summer months? Does sitting in your own home feel all too miserable and energy sapping? You're not alone as this is common with many UK homes, particularly pre-war builds where the centre of attention was on a warm cosy energy efficient home, and unfortunately, glass - at the time - simply wasn't a good insulator.
It's an established fact that your environment does play a major role in your mood and your frame of mind which is the reason that more people suffer from depression during the winter months than in the summer months.
During the late 1960's and early 1970's architects did focus more on light and ambiance rather than energy efficiency but designs like these where only for the rich and famous who could afford to keep their heating on all day and night so their home would look stunning.
However, it's a lot different nowadays with modern, energy efficient glass advancements year on year meaning that the average homeowner can now also have large glass windows, patios doors and of course stunning full width bi-folding doors without needing to spend an absolute fortune on their heating bills, in fact most of the new energy efficient glass used in these products can even save you money by keeping the heat in during the winter and keeping your home cool during the summer saving on both heating and air conditioning whether that air conditioning is a purpose built system or a simply electric wall, floor or ceiling fan.
