The study by comparison site GoCompare, also revealed that house hunters saw home security as another top priority – secure windows and doors listed by 70% of respondents as a key factor in their purchasing decision.

Gary Warby, Owner Premier Window: said: “It’s obvious from the research, that people looking to buy new homes are putting energy efficiency and more importantly security at the very top of their list.

“We have enjoyed a period of comparatively low energy costs but with a raft of low tariffs coming to an end last month, home energy efficiency is going to be a real priority going into the winter.”

According to the Energy Saving Trust, heat lost through windows accounts for around 25 per cent of the total energy lost from your home. It suggests that new windows and doors could save homeowners up to £160 a year in heating bills over old or single glazed windows.
