Double glazed windows are crucial if households want to make long-term savings on their energy bills.
According to Double Glazing Prices, 43 per cent of the UK's total greenhouse gas emissions can be attributed to inefficient properties.
The organisation stated a lot of people do have double-glazing, but are still "overheating" their homes.
However, plenty of households don't have energy-saving glass at all and many heating oil users will be hoping the government's Green Deal will give them an opportunity to weatherproof their home more effectively.
The scheme is aimed at providing loans to hard-up Britons, who can use the money to insulate their house. This will enable them to curb their energy consumption and the savings will be used to pay back the loan.
Representatives of the Department of Energy and Climate Change believe a total of 230,000 low-income households will benefit from the subsidy.
"An increased focus on poorer areas should see an extra 100,000 households in low income areas benefitting each year, compared to our original proposals," a spokesperson remarked.
