We are passionate about home improvements and particularly about windows and doors.

We see windows and doors as more than something that opens and closes to let you or the light in and out. We see them as extensions of your personality and an expression of the way that you like to live. We love getting to know our customers and the reasons why they choose particular windows and doors. Do you choose a brightly coloured door or will you fall back to a safe neutral position when you come to the final choice? Will you change from the existing colour and arrangement or will you make a radical change.

These journeys fascinate us and we are here to help make that journey exciting for you. A major purchase for your home should be exciting and give you pleasure for many years to come. Our news pages help to give you some insight to our personality and help you think more about the choices you make.

Save Money on House Hold Bills with These Tips.

When it comes to saving money, everyone wants in on the secret, and here at Heath Windows, we’ll share with you a few tips on how to reduce the cost of your household bills. That doesn't mean that you have to live uncomfortably. Many of the ways of saving have no effect on the quality of your life. Take a look to see how you can lower your bills.

Switch off Electrical Devices at the Wall

It may be tempting to leave the phone charger by your bedside plugged in. You can charge your phone in an instant, without having to faff around with turning the plug on. Most of us leave TVs, kettles, microwaves and other appliances switched on.  It can seem like too much effort to fire them up again, especially when you have to wait for computers. However, you’d be surprised by how much a small amount of electricity can add up over time and of course, you reduce the risk of an electrical fire. This is especially important with Christmas lights. 

What Causes Window Condensation?

Do you ever look at your windows and wonder why they’re misty? Windows can look misty whether the water has formed inside, outside or even in between the panes of glass. If you're above a certain age you'll even remember when 'Jack Frost' used to visit and turn that condensation into magical frosty patterns.

We have a lot of old homes here in Cardiff that have to live with old windows because they are in a conservation area or the building is listed.

Although it's not as cold in homes as it used to be, condensation is still not nice to live with. It spoils the look, creates damp pools on window sills and potentially causes mould if the window condensation doesn't dry quickly enough. It also affects the temperature of the room as the coldness emanates from the window. Whatever the reason for it, nobody wants it. To prevent it from happening, you first of all need to understand where it's coming from.
