Double glazing will normally be fitted to a uPVC window frame. uPVC is the most energy efficient material from those used in the production of double glazing, compared to aluminium and hardwood.
You will have probably heard from a number of experts how double glazing will be able to save you money on your heating bills, but you might not be aware how these uPVC window installations actually work.
In reality, it’s a very simple technique. There are two panes of glass in the unit and these are separated by an energy efficient spacer, usually Argon, Xenon or Krypton. This gas creates an insulating barrier and doesn’t allow heat to pass between the two panes.
Effectively, this reduces heat loss, improving your home’s energy efficiency and cutting your bills. With uPVC window double glazing you can save up to £300 a year on your energy bills, which will be enough to help you escape fuel poverty.
With double glazing windows:
- Reduce your energy bills by up to £300 annually, saving you thousands of pounds over the 20 year life expectancy and protecting you from rising energy prices
- Heat your home efficiently, without having to turn up the temperature as heat is retained better in the home
- This also means your home’s carbon footprint will be slashed, making your property much more environmentally friendly
uPVC window double glazing throughout your home is one of the most effective ways to reduce energy bills, along with replacing an old, inefficient boiler. Together these will help you create a greener environment.
When it comes to the cost of double glazing, it varies depending on the size of the window, the material and gas used and which company you opt to hire. A-rated double glazing will be most worthwhile for your home and will see you make the most energy bill reductions.
What’s important though is that you consult with a professional company and avoid the cowboys who’ll do a botched job, take your money and run.
