Some window and door manufacturers helpfully use a window energy rating system to show how energy efficient their products are.

To find the right double glazing doors and windows for your home in Ballingry, ask yourself these questions:

"How energy efficient are the windows?"

Double Glazing Fitters Ballingry (KY5)

When choosing replacement windows in Ballingry, you can check their energy efficiency by looking at the Energy Saving Trust Recommended logo and BFRC energy label. The Energy Saving Trust endorses any double glazed windows rated C or above. The higher the energy rating, the more energy efficient it is. Unfortunately, at the moment there's no obligation for double glazing manufacturers to label their products, however by choosing a high rated double glazing window you know you'll be buying the most efficient.

How many glass layers do you actually need?

Double glazing has 2 panes of glass with a space of around sixteen millimetres between them. There's also the option of triple glazing, which has three layers of glass. Both A rated double and tripled-glazed windows are available for installation in Ballingry.

What type of glass is best?

The most energy efficient glass for double glazed windows is low emissivity (Low-E) glass. This often has an undetectable covering of metal oxide, typically on one of the inner panes - next to the void. It lets heat and sunlight in but cuts the quantity of heat that can get out again.

What's between the panes?

Extremely efficient double glazing windows might use gases like argon, krypton or xenon in the space between the 2 sheets of glass.

What keeps the panes of glass apart?

All double glazed windows have pane spacers fixed around the interior edges to keep the 2 glass panes apart. For a more efficient window, look for pane spacers containing little or no metal - often referred to as "warm edge" spacers.

The BFRC window energy rating system checks all of the components to ensure the final window reaches the energy efficiency standard that is claimed. That means you just need to look for the A-G ratings and don't forget A is better! Alternatively, just keep an eye open for the Energy Saving Trust Recommended logo which will only be found on double glazing that is C rated or above.

Which frame best suits your home in Ballingry?

The type of frame you pick will depend on your home and your own personal preference. For all sorts of frame material there are double glazed windows offered in each energy rating.

  • uPVC frames are the most common type. They last a long time and can be recycled.
  • 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.

Do you need ventilation?

Since replacement windows in Ballingry will be a lot more airtight than your existing single glazed frames, condensation might build up in your house due to the reduced ventilation.

If there isn't a good level of background ventilation in the room, some replacement windows have trickle vents incorporated into the frame that allow in a small amount of controlled ventilation.

Condensation can sometimes occur on the outside surfaces of new low-e glazing. This is because low-e glass is designed to reflect heat back into the home and as a result the outside pane stays cool and condensation can build up in cold weather - this is not an issue.

When should you improve your double glazing in Ballingry.

The majority of homes in Ballingry now have double glazing installed, but what some householders don't realise is that double glazing (like most other things needs to be maintained and from time to time replaced, if you have had your double glazing for quite a few years.

Condensation or mist inside the glass.

If there is moisture inside the glass panes, it often means that the seal has broken, letting new moisture in. This means it is usually time to replace your old double glazed windows. "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 Ballingry expert.

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

The PVC becoming discoloured 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 Ballingry. Nowadays, most suppliers guarantee against discolouring but not against slight dulling and fading.

"The window hinges are too tight and it is difficult to open the window."

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

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

If this does not work, your local glass outlet or double glazing repair firm (see local paper ads or Yellow Pages) will usually be happy to fit a new hinge for you.

For starters, check for a slightly bent hinge, a loose handle or a hinge where a rivet or screw has become loose. If it is none of these you may need to replace your windows, although it is worthwhile to contact your local Ballingry repair company first to check whether the window can be repaired.
