Creating a Resurgence in energy performance

Creating a Resurgence in energy performance

The call for the UK to improve the energy efficiency of homes has come into sharp focus off the back of COP26 and the world declaring a climate emergency. According to the Committee on Climate Change, 40% of the UK’s carbon emissions are produced by residential dwellings, and if we are, as a nation going to reach our target of net zero by 2050, we must act now.

Many homes in the UK are steeped in a rich history and have stood for hundreds of years. This can pose significant challenges when homeowners are wanting to reduce their carbon emissions whilst ensuring their property is both warm and secure. In addition, heritage homes can often either be in a conservation area or have a listed status, meaning that there are strict restrictions regarding the type of windows that can be retrofitted.

Delivering energy performance for heritage properties

By developing a system that has a realistic wood heritage look and finish, the award-winning Resurgence from Liniar is the UK’s first PVCu double-rebated flush sash window system and offers a genuine alternative to timber windows.

Resurgence can reach Window Energy Ratings (WER) of A++ and can achieve a U-value as low as 0.8 W/m²K. With the option to fit 28 mm double glazing or 36 and 44mm triple glazing, Resurgence windows can help significantly improve heritage, listed, new and existing homes by delivering unrivalled energy efficiency together with both draught and weatherproofing.

Councils and planners recognise that they must take a more modern approach to the renovation and upgrade of heritage and listed buildings and therefore Resurgence, in consultation with the relevant bodies, can be part of upgrading heritage homes whilst meeting Article 4 directions and listed building requirements.

Creating a stunning window

With a clean and sleek finish, Resurgence is available in a wide range of colours, with woodgrain finishes to give a true heritage appearance. Using a comprehensive lamination process, the realistic finish of a Resurgence window is ensured even when open by having foil in all visible areas. In addition to standard PVCu welding and mechanical jointing, Resurgence also benefits from being able to use Timberweld® technology which provides a butt-jointed handcrafted appearance whilst saving fabricators production time.

The system has also been specifically designed to be fitted using traditional standard PVCu installation methods. This means Resurgence requires no specialist training for installers, ensuring a better finish and minimal time and disruption for homeowners or site operatives.

Future proofing heritage homes

With energy prices set to continue to rise and rumours of taxes being applied to poor energy performing homes, there is no better time to educate homeowners, renovators and property developers about the long-term impact of their window choice. Installing energy efficient, UK made and fabricated windows that help improve a home’s Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) will not only save carbon emission and energy costs but will add genuine, sustainable value to properties.

With nearly 50 years’ expertise and heritage in the fenestration industry, Liniar is committed to helping reduce the UK’s carbon emissions through innovation, investment and ensuring that fenestration products are fabricated to exacting standards whilst offering best-in-class customer and technical services.

The Resurgence system continues to be a genuine game changer for heritage and modern homes alike, offering stylish, energy efficient and secure windows.
