How To Prep Your Home For Winter

After being hit by the tail end of Hurricane Ophelia the UK is experiencing some unseasonably warm weather.

But remember, this is Britain. We all know how quickly conditions can change and with just 69 days left until Christmas, some exceptionally cold days inevitably lie ahead, so you need to ask yourself this – is my home fully prepared for winter?

If you feel that it isn’t, it’s not too late to get it winter-ready and Eden Windows has the products and installation expertise needed to help you.

Here’s our rundown of the must-have home improvements for this winter and beyond

A+ Plus Windows

It was announced last week by the Prime Minister that the energy bills of 11 million households will be capped for as long as five years under legislation put forward by government as UK families continue to struggle to cope with the cost of energy.

Whether that plan comes into force remains to be seen, however, the installation of A+ Plus Windows will help you immediately cut the cost of your energy bills. They’re the most thermally efficient windows developed yet and will practically eliminate heat loss.

Anyone unable to afford A+ Plus windows who currently has single glazed windows will find an upgrade to double glazing windows a little more affordable and an effective measure to reduce fuel usage.

Solid Roof

Thousands of old conservatories will sit completely empty for the next few months. It is a crying shame as a conservatory is the perfect setting for the many big winter occasions coming up (Halloween, Bonfire Night, Christmas, New Year).

They’ll be left unoccupied because they get incredibly cold. The simplest solution to this common problem is to replace the existing conservatory roof with a solid roof.

Available in lightweight slates / tiles, a solid roof can be specially designed for your conservatory style in an appropriate finish and will keep the interior toasty, even when the weather is at its worst.


The clocks will be going back next weekend which means fewer hours of daylight. Embrace any natural sunlight by integrating one of our fantastic skylights into whichever room could do with additional illumination. Our skylight range is encompassed of the Atlas Roof, Atlas Rooflights, UltraSky Roof and Velux Windows.

They each contain a wealth of glass and the bare minimum of framing so that lots of light gets through them and you get the most amazing view of the sky.
