Over 18% of the heat your home loses is lost through the windows. Heat that is lost through this ways means that energy is wasted, and money is wasted. If less heat escapes from your home in Bilston, you can save energy and save money.

All properties lose heat through their windows. Putting in double glazing is an effective way of bringing down your heating bills and keeping your Bilston home quieter and warmer.
Double glazed windows use two panes of glass with a space in between which creates an insulating barrier, while triple glazed windows have three sheets of glass. Both of those options can provide a good level of energy efficiency. It isn't the case that you must use triple glazing to gain the best results.
Energy efficient windows can be purchased in an assortment of frame materials and styles. They also vary in their energy efficiency, depending on 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 out or in around the window.
Some door and window manufacturers helpfully use a window energy rating system to show the energy efficiency of their product. This is much like the one you might have observed on appliances such as your washing machine or fridge. A-rated windows are the most efficient. To check a window's energy efficiency before you buy it, look at the energy label.

To find the best double glazing doors and windows for your property in Bilston, ask these questions:
"How energy efficient are the windows?"
When choosing replacement windows in Bilston, you can check their energy efficiency by looking at the BFRC energy label and Energy Saving Trust Recommended logo. The Energy Saving Trust endorses any double glazing windows rated C or above. The higher the energy rating, the more energy efficient it is. Unfortunately, at this time there is no obligation for double glazing window manufacturers to label their products, however by picking a high rated double glazed window you can ensure that you'll be buying the most efficient.
How many layers of glass do you actually need?
Double glazing has two sheets of glass with a space of about 16mm between them. There is 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 Bilston.
What sort of glass is best?
The most energy efficient glass for double glazed windows is low emissivity (Low-E) glass. This sometimes has an unnoticeable coating of metal oxide, generally on one of the internal panes - next to the void. It allows sunlight and heat in but cuts the amount of heat that can get out again.
What is between the glass panes?
Very efficient double glazing windows may use gases like xenon, argon or krypton in the void between the 2 glass sheets.
What keeps the sheets of glass apart?
All double glazed windows have pane spacers attached around the interior edges to keep the 2 panes of glass apart. For a more efficient window, watch out for pane spacers containing little or no metal - often known as "warm edge" spacers.
The BFRC window energy rating system checks all the components to ensure the final window reaches the energy efficient standard stated. This means you just need to watch out for the A-G ratings and keep in mind A is the best! Alternatively, just look for the Energy Saving Trust Recommended logo which will only be found on glazing that is C rated or above.
Which frame suits your home in Bilston?
The frame you choose will be determined by your home and your personal taste. 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.
- 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
- Aluminium or steel frames are slim and long-lasting. They can be recycled.
Do you need ventilation?
As replacement windows in Bilston will be a lot more airtight than your old single glazed frames, condensation may build up in your house because of reduced ventilation.
If there isn't a decent level of background ventilation in the room, some replacement windows will have trickle vents incorporated into the frame that let in a limited amount of controlled ventilation.
Condensation can occasionally occur on the outside of new low-e glazing. This is because low-e glass is designed to reflect heat back into the room and as a result the outside pane stays cool and condensation can build up in cold weather - this isn't an issue.
When should you consider improving your double glazing in Bilston.
The majority of properties in Bilston now have double glazing, but what some people don't realise is that double glazing (like most other things needs to be maintained and sometimes replaced, if you've had double glazed windows for quite a few years.
Mist or condensation inside glass.
If there is moisture inside the panes of glass, it often means that the sealant 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, it's usually had it, and the pane will have to be replaced," says a local Bilston expert.
"My windows have changed to a dull yellow colour."
The uPVC changing colour over time doesn't mean the quality of the double glazing has been affected. You can sometimes find specialised paints to re-paint the frames of your windows in Bilston. Most suppliers nowadays guarantee against discolouration but not against minor fading and dulling.
"The hinges on my windows are too tight and it's hard to open the window."
If you carefully examine the hinge, you should see 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 specialist (see local paper ads or Yellow Pages) can usually fit a new hinge for you.
"The hinges on my windows are far too loose and my windows slam open when opened."
If you examine the hinge closely, you'll see a small brass screw. This is called the tensioning screw and if you tighten it slightly, it should solve the problem. If this does not work, your local glass store or double glazing repair firm (see Yellow Pages or local paper ads) will usually be happy to fit a new hinge for you.
"There's a draught coming through my windows."
First, check for a loose handle, slightly bent hinge or a hinge where a screw or rivet has become loose. If it is none of these the time may have come to replace your double glazing, although it's worthwhile to contact your local Bilston repair company first to see whether the window can be repaired.
Double glazing can last for over 20 years, but like anything else is liable to 'wear and tear'.
