Double glazed windows use two sheets of glass with a void in between which creates an insulating barrier, while triple glazed windows have three panes of glass. Both options can provide a high level of energy efficiency. It is not the case that you must use triple glazing to gain the most energy efficient window.
Energy efficient windows are available in an array of frame materials and styles. They also have different levels of energy efficiency, determined by how successful they are at stopping heat from passing through the window, how much sunlight travels through the glass, and how little air can leak in or out around the window.
Some door and window manufacturers helpfully use a window energy rating system to show how energy efficient their products are. This is comparable to the one you might have seen on appliances like your fridge, or washing machine. A-rated windows are the most efficient. To check the energy efficiency of a window before you buy, look at the energy label.

To find the right double glazing doors and windows for your home in Bedlington, you should ask yourself these questions:
"How energy efficient are the windows?"
When selecting replacement windows in Bedlington, you can verify their energy efficiency by looking at the Energy Saving Trust Recommended logo and BFRC energy label. The Energy Saving Trust recommends any double glazed windows rated C or above. The higher the energy rating, the more energy efficient it is. Sadly, at the moment there's no obligation for double glazing window producers to label their products, however by choosing a high rated double glazing window you know that you'll be buying the most efficient.
How many layers of glass do you actually need?
Double glazing has 2 layers of glass with a gap of around 16mm between them. There's also the option of triple glazing, which has 3 sheets of glass. Both A rated double and tripled-glazed windows are available in Bedlington.
What kind of glass is best?
The most energy efficient glass for double glazing is low emissivity (Low-E) glass. This often has an undetectable coating of metal oxide, generally on one of the inner panes - next to the void. It allows sunlight and heat in but cuts the amount of heat that can get out again.
What's between the sheets?
Really efficient double glazing windows may use gases like xenon, krypton or argon in the void between the 2 sheets of glass.
What keeps the panes apart?
All double glazed windows have pane spacers attached around the inside edges to keep the two glass panes 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 system checks all the components to ensure the final window attains the energy efficient standard claimed. This 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 higher.
Which frame best suits your home in Bedlington?
The frame you pick will depend on your house and your own personal taste. For all frame materials there are double glazed windows available in each energy rating.
- uPVC frames are the most common type. They last a long time and can be recycled.
- Aluminium or steel frames are slim and long-lasting. They can be recycled.
- 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.
- Composite frames have an inner timber frame covered with aluminium or plastic. This reduces the need for maintenance and keeps the frame weatherproof
Do you need ventilation?
Because replacement windows in Bedlington will be far more airtight than your original single glazed frames, condensation might build up in your home due to the reduced ventilation.
If there isn't a good level of background ventilation in the room, some replacement windows will have trickle vents incorporated into the frame that allow in a limited amount of controlled ventilation.
Condensation can sometimes occur on the outside surfaces of new low-e glazing. This is due to the fact that low-e glass reflects heat back into the room and as a result the external pane stays cool and condensation can build up in cold weather - this is not a problem.
When should you improve your double glazing in Bedlington.
The majority of properties in Bedlington now have double glazing installed, but what some homeowners do not realise is that double glazing (like most other things needs to be maintained and sometimes replaced, if you've had your double glazing for quite a few years.
Condensation or mist inside glass.
If there's moisture inside the sheets of glass, it often means that the seal has broken, letting new moisture in. This usually means that it's time to replace your double glazed windows. "If it's steamed up and there is condensation, it's usually had it, and the pane will have to be replaced," says a local Bedlington expert.
"My windows have gone a dull yellow colour."
The uPVC changing colour over time doesn't mean that the quality of the double glazing has been compromised. You can often find special paints to re-paint the frames of your windows in Bedlington. Nowadays, most manufacturers guarantee against discolouration but not against minor dulling and fading.
"The hinges on my windows are too tight and they're difficult to open."
If you carefully examine the hinge, you should see a small brass screw. This is the tensioning screw and if you loosen it slightly, it should solve the problem. If this doesn't work, your local glass store or double glazing repair specialist (see local paper ads or Yellow Pages) will usually replace the hinge for you.
"The hinges on my windows are way too loose and my windows fly wide open when opened."
If you examine the hinge, you'll notice a small brass screw. This is known as the tensioning screw and if you tighten it a little bit, it should solve the problem. If this does not work, your local glass outlet or double glazing repair company (see Yellow Pages or local paper ads) can usually replace the hinge for you.
"Draughts are coming through my windows."
Firstly, check for a loose handle, slightly bent hinge or a hinge where a rivet or screw has become loosened. If it is none of these things you may need to replace your windows, although it's worth contacting your local Bedlington window repair company first to check whether the window can be repaired.
