The Enery Savings Trust can only recommend the highest performing companies so only the best products that get to be Energy Savings Trust recommended.
Having been awarded the first five certificates from the BFRC, (the British Fenestration Ratings Council), we were further recognised by the Energy Savings Trust as the first company to be recommended by them in the UK.
While building regulations require windows with a “C” energy rating or better, most of our bygone ranges come “A” rated as standard, however, those on a tight budget may prefer a compliant window of “C” rating.
One important consideration is that most companies remove steel reinforcement to maximise the energy performance of their windows, this weakens profiles considerably.
Bygone windows are different.
We’ve had ours tested with steel reinforcement (which drains heat) so that you get an “A” rated product which is energy efficient and a solid, secure sash window, recognised by the Police through their preferred standard, Secured by Design.
“The communication and customer service has been excellent”. - Mrs B – Guildford
"These windows are a premium range but secure, A rated and have a very authentic grained appearance.” - GP – Essex
"The conservation officer had to be told that these sash windows weren't timber!" "They're a perfect match for the old ones and for our period property, but are more secure, retain the heat of the room and look great inside and out.” - Mr D W – Stoke
"We wanted someone we could trust. Having the double guarantee and back up of bygone themselves was the final reassurance we needed but we shouldn't have worried. Will get them back again next year when we can afford some more” - Mr C K - Derbyshire
"WE DESPERATELY WANTED TO RETAIN THE INTERNAL SHUTTERS" - MRS S.B - OXFORD
"The windows are lovely, the service and installation were excellent, and we’re now going to have the rest of them done” - Mrs C. J – Brentwood
