"How energy efficient are the windows?"

Double Glazing Fitters Blandford Forum (DT11)

When picking out replacement windows in Blandford Forum, 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 is no obligation for double glazing window manufacturers to label their products, however by opting for a high rated double glazing window you can be certain that you will be purchasing the most efficient.

How many glass layers do you need?

Double glazing has 2 layers of glass with a gap 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 for installation in Blandford Forum.

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 unnoticeable coating of metal oxide, usually on one of the internal panes - next to the gap. It lets heat and sunlight in but cuts the quantity of heat that can get out again.

What's between the glass panes?

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

What keeps the glass sheets apart?

All double glazed 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 containing little or no metal - often known as "warm edge" spacers.

The BFRC window energy rating scheme checks all the components to ensure the final window attains the energy efficiency standard claimed. This means that you simply 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 glazed windows which are C rated or higher.

Which frame is better for your home in Blandford Forum?

The frame you choose will depend on your house and your own personal taste. For all frame materials 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?

Since replacement windows in Blandford Forum will be a lot more airtight than the old single glazed frames, condensation may build up in your house because of reduced ventilation.

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

Condensation can sometimes occur on the exterior 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 external pane remains cool and condensation can build up in cold weather - this isn't a problem.

When should you improve your double glazing in Blandford Forum.

Most houses in Blandford Forum now have double glazing installed, but what some folks do not realise is that double glazing (like anything else needs to be maintained and from time to time replaced, if you've had your double glazing for a number of 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, the window has usually had it, and the pane will have to be replaced," says a local Blandford Forum expert.

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

The uPVC becoming discoloured over time doesn't mean that the quality of the double glazing has been compromised. You can sometimes find specialised paints to re-paint the frames of your windows in Blandford Forum. Most manufacturers nowadays guarantee against discolouring but not against minor dulling and fading.

"The window hinges 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 called the tensioning screw and if you loosen it fractionally, it should solve the problem. If this does not work, your local glass shop or double glazing repair firm (see Yellow Pages or local paper ads) can usually fit a new hinge for you.

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

If it's none of these things it may be time to replace your windows, although it's worthwhile to contact your local Blandford Forum repair company first to see if you can have the window repaired.
