Double glazed windows use 2 sheets of glass with a void between them which creates an insulating barrier, whilst triple glazed windows have three panes of glass. Both of those options can deliver a good level of energy efficiency. It isn't the case that you have to use triple glazing to get the most energy efficient window.

Double glazed windows can be found in an assortment of frame styles and materials. They also have different levels of energy efficiency, determined by how well they stop heat from passing through the window, what amount of sunlight travels through the glass, and how little air can leak in or out around the window.

Some window and door manufacturers helpfully use a window energy rating scheme to show the energy efficiency of their product. This is much like the one you would have seen on home appliances like your fridge, or washing machine. A-rated windows are the most efficient. To check a window's energy efficiency before you buy, look at the energy label.

To find the best double glazing doors and windows for your house in Ardrossan, ask yourself the following questions:

"How energy efficient are the windows?"

Double Glazing Fitters Ardrossan (KA22)

When choosing replacement windows in Ardrossan, you can find their energy efficiency by looking at the Energy Saving Trust Recommended logo and BFRC energy label. The Energy Saving Trust endorses any double glazing windows rated C or above. The higher the energy rating, the more energy efficient it is. Sadly, at this time there's no obligation for double glazing window producers to label their products, however by picking a high rated double glazed window you can be sure that you will be purchasing the most efficient.

How many layers of glass do you need?

Double glazing has two layers of glass with a space of approximately sixteen millimetres between them. There's also the option of triple glazing, which has 3 panes of glass. Both A rated triple and double glazed windows are available in Ardrossan.

What kind of glass is best?

The most energy efficient glass for double glazing is low emissivity (Low-E) glass. This often has an unnoticeable coating of metal oxide, normally on one of the interior panes - next to the gap. It allows heat and sunlight in but cuts the quantity of heat that can get out again.

What's between the panes?

Very efficient double glazing windows may use gases like xenon, argon or krypton in the space between the 2 glass panes.

What keeps the glass sheets apart?

All double glazing windows have pane spacers fixed around the inside edges to keep the two panes of glass apart. For the most efficient window, watch out for pane spacers that contain little or no metal - often referred to as "warm edge" spacers.

The BFRC window energy rating scheme checks all of the components to make certain the final window achieves the energy efficiency standard stated. That means you simply need to look for the A-G ratings and keep in mind A is the best! Alternatively, just keep an eye open for the Energy Saving Trust Recommended logo which is only found on double glazing that is C rated or higher.

Which frame is best for your home in Ardrossan?

The frame you choose will depend on your property and your personal preference. For all types of frame material there are double glazed windows available in each energy rating.

  • Composite frames have an inner timber frame covered with aluminium or plastic. This reduces the need for maintenance and keeps the frame weatherproof
  • Wooden frames can have a lower environmental impact, but require maintenance. They are often used in conservation areas where the original windows were timber framed.
  • Aluminium or steel frames are slim and long-lasting. They can be recycled.
  • uPVC frames are the most common type. They last a long time and can be recycled.

Is ventilation needed?

Since replacement windows in Ardrossan will be a lot more airtight than the original single glazed frames, condensation might accumulate in your house because of reduced ventilation.

If there isn't an adequate level of background ventilation in the room, some replacement windows have trickle vents built into the frame that let in a small amount of controlled ventilation.

Condensation can occasionally form on the outside surfaces of new low-e glazing. This is due to the fact that low-e glass is designed to reflect heat back into the home and as a result the exterior pane stays cool and condensation can build up in cold weather - this is not a problem.

When should you consider improving your double glazing in Ardrossan.

The majority of homes in Ardrossan now have double glazing installed, but what some homeowners do not realise is that double glazing (like anything else needs to be maintained and occasionally replaced, if you have had your double glazed windows for many years.

Condensation or mist inside the glass.

If there's moisture inside the panes of glass, it often means the seal has broken, letting new moisture in. This means it is usually time to replace your double glazing. "If it is steamed up and there is condensation, the window has usually had it, and the pane will have to be replaced," says a local Ardrossan expert.

"My windows have changed to a dull yellow colour."

The PVC changing colour over time does not mean that the quality of the double glazing has been compromised. You can often find specialised paints to re-paint the frames of your windows in Ardrossan. Nowadays, most manufacturers guarantee against discolouration but not against minimal dulling and fading.

"The window hinges are too tight and they're difficult to open."

If you carefully examine the hinge, you will notice a small brass screw. This is the tensioning screw and if you loosen it fractionally, the problem should be resolved. If this fails to work, your local glass store or double glazing repair firm (see local paper ads or Yellow Pages) will usually be willing to replace the hinge for you.

"The hinges on my windows are much too loose and my windows fly wide open when opened."

If you examine the hinge closely, you will notice a small brass screw. This is called the tensioning screw and if you tighten it a little bit, it should solve the problem. If this does not work, your local glass shop or double glazing repair specialist (see local paper ads or Yellow Pages) will usually fit a new hinge for you.

"Draughts are coming through my windows."

Firstly, check for a loose handle, slightly bent hinge or a hinge where a screw or rivet has become loosened. If it's none of these things you may need to replace your double glazing, although it is worth contacting your local Ardrossan window repair company first to check if you can have the window repaired.

Double glazing can last for many years, but like anything else is susceptible to 'wear and tear'. Before contracting a double glazing specialist in Ardrossan to replace your windows, get 2 or 3 price quotes to ensure that you're getting the best deal, and only consider approved and registered Ardrossan double glazing installers, who provide a guarantee for their windows and work.
