Glazing Options

Here in the UK, double glazing or triple glazed doors and windows is the preferable way to ensure proper insulation of one’s property.

 

Glass is a reasonable insulator, but a single pane of glass in a door or window needs to be fairly thick to be able to deliver anything like the thermal performance of a modern double glazed or triple glazed door or window.

 

Double or triple glazing obviously involves two or three panes of glass respectively. The 2 or 3 panes are held alongside one another by a spacer bar. The hermcetically sealed units contain air or inert Argon gas in the 2 or 3 panes delivering excellent insulation.

 

The Thermal Efficiency of the units combines with the frames to give the whole window or door a WER rating from 'A' rated being the best through to 'C' rated.

The insulating layer of double glazing helps keep the cold temperatures on the outside from affecting the climate on the inside. The benefit for you is that your home will be noticeably warmer in winter.

 

The shift from single glazing to standard double glazing will reduce heat loss through your windows by over 50%.

In the same way that the insulating layer of double glazing helps keep the cold temperatures out, it reduces the impact of hot temperatures. Thus, the benefit for you is that your home will be noticeably cooler in summer.

 

The shift from single glazing to standard double glazing will reduce the solar heat gain through your windows by around 13%.

So exactly what are Energy Efficient Windows? They are windows that help to contain and conserve heat within the home, keeping out wind and rain, resisting condensation and yet allowing natural “free” energy - the warmth of the sun - to heat the home. They can be made using any frame material - aluminium, PVC-U, steel or timber or even a combination of materials.

 

HSW Windows & Doors double glazing or triple glazing  are all Energy Efficient Windows. They are easy to recognise - simply look for the BFRC Label.
