How long does a boiler last?

Launched in 1966, Anglian Windows is one of the country’s three biggest window installation firms by number of customers along with Everest Home Improvement and SafeStyle UK. Since their launch, they have gone past the 1 million customer mark and their 2,000-strong workforce fit windows into over 800 homes a week. Anglian Windows cover most of the UK and they currently enjoy a high level of repeat business and recommendations from their customers.
Anglian double glazing windows are manufactured to the highest standard here in Great Britain. The company is rightly proud that it has been established for half a century.
|UPVC 60 x 90 cm||£250-£570|
|Wood||£845 - £910|
Anglian Windows don’t publish their price list online however we can say with a reasonable degree of certainty that the price you’ll be initially quoted for a 60cm by 90cm double glazed window installed will be around the figures shown below:
The company produces uPVC, aluminium and wooden windows in a range of styles including casement, cottage, bay, sash, tilt and turn and shaped windows. There is a selection of double, triple and secondary glazing. You also have an extensive colour and finish choice.
Anglian’s quotes are valid for six months from the date shown on your estimate. Please bear in mind that the more windows you get fitted during one installation, the cheaper the price per window you’ll pay in general.
As we mentioned before, Anglian Windows won’t give you a quote until one of their representatives has come around to your home to visit you. This is not unusual in itself – many installers don’t like to give a quote over the phone or by email until they see your property because there may be complications on site that make a quote difficult to honour.
In many cases, the representative from Anglian Windows will be interested in getting you to agree to an installation as quickly as possible. Anglian Windows employ hundreds of fitters around the country and they don’t want their teams sitting around doing anything and being paid for it.
Anglian Windows promise to price match any quote from uPVC from any source including installation. They will not beat the price but they will match it.
Here at CompareCompanies, we always advice that you get quotes from a number of different sources because, that way, you can save up to 40% on the price for a world-class installation. If you intend to use this price match promise with Anglian Windows, it may be best to get 3-4 quotes in from other suppliers and then show your Anglian rep the price you want to match.
Anglian Windows have teamed up with Japanese technology company and finance provider Hitachi to offer a flexible finance option to homeowners. With the Gold Account, you can:
You may be able to secure a further discount by using the Gold Account because, in common with all other installers, Anglian receive a “thank you” commission from Hitachi for introducing them to a new finance customer.
If the first quote you get is from Anglian and you don’t have any quotes for other companies to show your representative, you should ask for as big as discount as you can get.
We’re all used to haggling on big purchases – cars, the homes we live in, building work, and so on. New windows for your home is no different – in fact, many representatives visiting people in their home expect the people they’re meeting to haggle them down on price.
You can normally achieve the biggest discounts by agreeing to sign up during the appointment.
Whichever approach or combination of approaches you choose, make sure that you feel comfortable with the price you’re paying and that, if you’re taking out a Gold Account, that you can meet the monthly repayments without causing any hardship.
Anglian Windows offer three different types of glazing for your home. Double glazing is by far their most popular installation followed by triple glazing and secondary glazing.
By far and away the most popular choice of framing for windows, uPVC are very low maintenance and work very well both functionally and aesthetically on more modern builds. They offer a long, 25+ year lifespan after installation delivering real value for money to homeowners.
Timber frames look beautiful and they last for years. They look superb on more traditional and period properties although they require much more maintenance than their uPVC counterparts. Timber frames carry a significant premium in price over uPVC windows.
Very much the window frame in fashion now, aluminium double glazing regularly features in style and home improvement magazines. They’re great looking, customisable, and durable with lifespans in excess of 50 years. The frames are also very thin meaning that, in general, much more light gets into your home. Aluminium frames are more expensive than timber frames.
Casement windows are the most popular choice of windows in the UK. They’re opened using a handle placed on the frame and, with Anglian’s casement windows, you can choose to place the handle on the side of at the top.
Flush windows from Anglian are an enhanced version of their casement windows in the sense that the panes are placed dead flush to the outside of the frame creating clean, simple, and elegant lines. They’re available in either uPVC or timber frames.
Anglian’s cottage windows are aesthetically beautiful with a design which closes follows those of windows seen in traditional British cottages. They are popular for homeowners living in older, more traditional properties.
Popular since Victorian times, bay windows allow sunlight to flood into your home and they afford a panoramic and beautiful vista on the outside of your property. Anglian’s bay windows also provide homeowners with extra space and additional security through the construction of the bay windows.
Anglian’s sash windows are a modern day replica of the stylish window styles so prevalent in UK architecture prior to the invention and widespread adoption of double glazing. Sash windows feature an upper and lower panel – simply slide the lower panel up to open your windows to the outside world.
A modern twist on the casement window, you can open a tilt and turn window either inwards or vertically with an Anglian Tilt & Turn window. The Anglian dual turn window is an improvement on the old-style sash window which allows both panel to open by rotation rather than by sliding the bottom pane up.
Anglian windows also manufacture bespoke windows which allow you to replace windows with unusual configurations. During your appointment with their representative, measurements and photos are taken so that the finished product sits proud and flush in its location.
In general, given the size of Anglian Windows and the complexity of running a business of that size, the company performs well in online customer reviews:
|Platform||Number of reviews||Review score|
|Feefo||921||4.1 out of 5|
Established more than 50 years ago and with over 1 million successful installations, homeowners can be assured by the number of respected trade bodies and certification schemes to which Anglian belongs.
Have you ever seen the energy efficiency ratings on washing machines, freezers, and fridges telling you how energy efficient they are? The British Fenestration Rating Council (BRFC) does the same work but on windows and doors. Anglian, as a manufacturer of doors and windows, sends samples to BRFC for independent testing of the energy efficiency of its products.
The Glass and Glazing Federation (GGF) is the leading UK trade body for manufacturers, suppliers and installers of glass and glazing products in the UK and internationally. Part of its remit is to protect homeowners when they are purchasing glass or glazing products and services.
240 GGF members form the Conservatory Association, an off-shoot of the GGF. Members must follow their “Code of Good Practice” following the successful completion of the stringent admissions test and members must promise to uphold those standards permanently in the future.
The Conservatory Association, as part of the GGF, also offers a free reconciliation service when there is a dispute between an installer and a homeowner on the quality of work.
A government authorised Competent Person Scheme, FENSA appoints representatives in member companies who can sign off windows, doors, roof lights, and roof windows as being compliant with all relevant Building Regulations.
The Glazing Arbitration Scheme (TGAS) is a service offering an independent way of resolving disputes between TGAS registered traders and their customers “in a fair and impartial way”.
TrustMark members are heavily vetted so that they meet all required industry standards and they make a binding and meaningful commitment to best practice, technical competence, and good customer service.
Anglian Windows offers the following guarantees and reassurances to its customers:
If you agree to go ahead with Anglian Windows, the lead time between signing the contract and the date on which your installation starts is normally around 6-8 weeks. Each frame is custom-made for your property and to the specifications taken down by your representative and project manager so it does takes a bit of time. That said, this lead time is very similar to virtually every other double glazing installer.
If you use the Price Match guarantee, you are able to pay the same amount for your new windows as you would pay a local installer. Local installers generally tend to be up to 25% cheaper than national installers in many cases because their overheads are a lot lower.
CompareCompanies can put you in touch with 3-4 reputable local and national installers. For every installer we work with, we’ve done all the due diligence for you. We’ve made sure that they’ve been trading for at least one year and that they have the correct and current certification with both CERTASS and FENSA.
You’ll speak with a fitter or a representative from each of the companies we introduce you to – ask the questions you need to ask so that, if you do choose to go ahead, you’re happy with the firm you’ve chosen and the price you’re paying.
To get started, please fill in the form at the top of the page.
Our service is free of charge to you and you are under no obligation to accept a quote from any installer we bring you together with.
If you would like to know more about Anglian double glazing windows then why not get in touch with us as soon as possible and we will gladly arrange for a consultant from the company to make contact with you. He or she will arrange for an Anglian design expert to visit you at home to discuss your requirements and provide a free quotation.

Got 2 suppliers, both phoned me within 24 hours, both made appointments to come and see me the following day.
These people are well managed and they provide outstanding support in all the aspects. Keep it up.

We endeavour to procure bespoke, free, no obligation quotes from potential suppliers of products and services to each of our customers, such as you, that make an enquiry via our website. This is a quote finding and supplier introduction service; we do not ourselves provide the products and services that you may require. We provide these services to consumers and businesses.
We aim to provide 1-4 quotes within 36 hours from your online completion of an enquiry working in conjunction with data controllers who specialise in the delivery of competitive supplier quotes. The number of quotes that we will try and help you to receive does vary depending on the product or service that you are looking to receive quotes for. If we do not call you before passing your details to the companies that supply the quotes we will stipulate the maximum numbers of companies that we will pass your details to when you enter your details in our product specific web form. If you have enquired about double glazing on our website one of the companies that we work closely with is Safestyle UK plc. Depending on your postcode area and requirements we may pass your details to Safestyle UK plc. We will reconfirm this when we speak to you on the phone.
To be able to deliver suitable quotations to you we send your personal data and the details of your requirements to potential suppliers.
We offer a price comparison service. All of the companies that we deal with know that you are conducting a comparison, hence they will often offer cheaper prices, for example on labour, than they would were they approached directly by a customer, hence our service has the potential to get you big discounts.
To provide our service we first explain in more detail how we use your personal information so that the consent you give us, which is detailed in the next paragraph, is fully and fairly informed.
You may seek further information about the scope of the consent as well as vary or withdraw your consent as outlined under the heading “What are my rights in relation to the personal data that you hold?”
We obtain personal information and business information (for business products and services) about you, only from you, and do not acquire information about you from anyone else.
First, to provide our quote finding service we will ask you manually to supply us via the website with your personal details namely: First Name, Last Name, Email Address, Telephone Number, Street, House Number, Post Code and Company Name (for business products & services). You may also be asked on the website and by follow up telephone call for further information to help us process your request for quotations.
Second, information is obtained electronically when one computer connects with another across the Internet as when you visit our website such as such as your computer’s unique numerical Internet address (IP address). Information so obtained while necessary to the operation of and communication between computers may well also allow you as owner of the information to be identified, much like a name and address, and thus constitute personal data. The law requires such information to be identified and so far as practicable, for informed consent to be given by you, before the electronic information is passed from your computer to ours. Further explanation about the automatic electronic collection of your information is provided under the heading “Your electronic information”.
We do not use your IP address to identify you personally but these logs may contain unique identifiable information left by your computer.
We may use IP addresses to ensure that we are not receiving fraudulent registrations from the same IP address as evidence in the event of being challenged for unsolicited marketing. The IP address log would show that a registration took place on a given day.
We provide our service to both consumers and businesses. The way the service works is very similar but due to the nature of the products and services and the suppliers of these, the processes are slightly different. From your perspective, you will receive the same level of service from us and your expectations in terms of receiving quotations from appropriate suppliers that you can then choose from are the same.
The processes how your data will be used are explained below.
After you submit your details we may phone you to discuss the products or services you seek from a suitable supplier, to check we’ll be able to meet your needs and, should you still wish to go ahead with us, to get you free and no-obligation quotes. This will normally be us but below explains how it works with the different products and services that we are able to help in the quoting process with.
At times we work as the appointment booking agent for the companies working on our network so even if you have requested direct contact from the company you may still receive a call from us in order to book the appointment for your quotation.
For certain home improvement enquiries we may not at the time you register with us have an installer who can provide quotes for that product. If that is the case we will pass your details to another quote finding company (in a secure manner) who will call you to see if they can match your details with some installers of that product. They will not use your information to do anything other than to call you about the product that you enquired about.

We take the security of your data very seriously from the outset. Our web address is HTTPS. (HyperText Transport Protocol Secure) This is the protocol used to access a secure Web server. We use https:// as the prefix to our Web address rather than the common http://, so that your session is managed by a security protocol and the transmission of data is encrypted to and from the Web server.
Secure certificates (SSL Certificates) are in place. These are small data files that digitally bind a cryptographic key to an organisation’s details. These allow secure connections from a web server to a browser. SSL is used to secure the transfer of your data to our server.
Our server is protected by a firewall. Log in details are securely shared internally between employees.
Any personal data held in our database is encrypted. If there are any security breaches, your data is encrypted and therefore secure.
Each supplier to whom we pass your information in order to provide you with quotes has contracted with us to keep your data safe and use it only for the provision of a quote and, if selected by you, to provide the product or services you require.
We always have contracts in place with the companies that we pass your details on to both to ensure that they will keep your data secure and that they comply with the rules of the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) which we also operate within.
Please be assured – we will not use your details for marketing or use or pass your details to third parties other than as described in this statement without explicit consent from you.
Finally, please note that the transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your information transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.
We rely on your explicit consent to process your personal data. This means that we ask you to consent to the following use of your data:
We will email or text you about similar products and services. We will only do this if you haven’t opted out of receiving such emails or texts.
We like to work with Facebook, Google and other platforms (“Platforms”) to reach out to you with adverts for Other Products. We also like to use Platforms to reach out to other people who might like to use our quote request service.
We do this in two ways. In both cases, your data, along with other data, is used to create a custom audience and/or a lookalike/similar audience. Whenever an audience is shared with a Platform, the data is first hashed and pseudonymised, meaning that any data within the audience that could identify a person is replaced with an artificial identifier. So, the process is secure. Also, we don’t share more data than we need to for the purpose of creating the audience.
We share your personal data within our business and with data processors who can find suitable product and service suppliers for you. Your data will then be used to enable suppliers to provide quotations and potentially move towards a contract with you.
Some of the suppliers that may offer products and services to you are based outside of the EEA.
We transfer your data as detailed above with your consent.
We keep your personal data for no longer than is necessary for the purposes for which it is being processed. This is to reduce the risk that it will become inaccurate, out of date or irrelevant.
We ensure that your personal data is securely disposed of when no longer needed.
Your rights are embodied in the contract formed between us when you visit the website (as subsequently augmented when submitting your personal information and, if you are called, when speaking on the phone) and as contained in the General Data Protection Regulations 2018 – also known as GDPR.

You may also write to our Data Protection Officers either at our registered office address stated at the outset of this statement.

The GDPR provides individuals with the rights in relation to personal information about themselves which is held by us as summarised in the table below.
Some of the rights are unlikely to be of practical use. For example, if you wish for a copy or correction or cessation of use of some or all of your personal data we, our suppliers and our other introducing companies are likely already to have eradicated it from our or their system given the short periods your date is retained and its limited use.
Nevertheless, the GDPR principle of transparency in particular provides you with the right to enquire and to be informed and we briefly set out all of the rights here. Further information about the rights and the circumstances in which they apply may be obtained from a number of published sources and from our fact sheets which are available on request.
Information Right – you may require us to provide a more detailed explanation of how we collect, process and use your personal information.
Personal Data Access Right – you may require us to provide an electronic copy of your data free of charge.
Personal Data Correction Right – you may require us to correct your personal information as held by us.
Personal Data Erasure Right – you may require us to permanently erase the personal data that we hold about you.
Data Processing Restriction Right – you may require us to stop using your data for particular purposes such as mailing or profiling.
Data Processing Objection Right – you may require us to suspend using your data if for example it is incorrect or you simply wish to withdraw your consent.
Data Portability Right – you may require us electronically to transfer your personal information to another supplier, for example to facilitate switching.
Automated Decision-Making Right – you may require us not to make decisions about you relying solely only on a computer decision.
Breach Notification Right – if in the unlikely event there occurs a breach of security which is likely to result in a high risk to your rights as a data subject, we must inform you without undue delay.
Rights aside, if you have a change of heart and do not wish us to pass your information to potential suppliers or another introducing company please let us know immediately by email or, should we call you, during our phone conversation and we will remove your information from our and their systems.
