Double glazed windows use two sheets of glass with a space in between which creates an insulating barrier, whilst triple glazed windows have three sheets of glass. Both of these options can provide a good level of energy efficiency. It's not the case that you have to use triple glazing to get the best results.
Energy efficient windows are available in a number of frame styles and materials. They also have different levels of energy efficiency, depending on how successful they are at stopping heat from passing through the window, what degree of sunlight gets 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 scheme to show how energy efficient their products are. This is similar to the one you may have observed on domestic appliances like your fridge, or washing machine. A-rated double glazing is the most effective. To check the energy efficiency of a window before you buy it, look for the energy label.

To find the best double glazed windows and doors for your house in Burgess Hill, ask yourself the following questions:
"How energy efficient are the windows?"
When picking replacement windows in Burgess Hill, you can find their energy efficiency by looking at the BFRC energy label and Energy Saving Trust Recommended logo. The Energy Saving Trust endorses any double glazed windows rated C or above. The higher the energy rating, the more energy efficient it is. Sadly, at this time there is no obligation for double glazing producers to label their products, however by picking a high rated double glazed window you know 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 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 Burgess Hill.
What type of glass is better?
The most energy efficient glass for double glazing is low emissivity (Low-E) glass. This often has an unnoticeable coating of metal oxide, typically on one of the inside panes - next to the space. It allows 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 krypton, xenon or argon in the gap 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 2 glass panes apart. For a more efficient window, watch out for pane spacers containing little or no metal - often called "warm edge" spacers.
The BFRC window energy rating scheme checks all of the components to ensure the final window achieves the energy efficiency standard advertised. This means that you just need to look for the A-G ratings and don't forget A is best! Alternatively, just look for the Energy Saving Trust Recommended logo which is only found on glazing that is C rated or above.
Which frame best suits your home in Burgess Hill?
The kind of frame you pick will depend on your home and your personal taste. For all types of frame material there are double glazed windows offered in each energy rating.
- 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.
- Composite frames have an inner timber frame covered with aluminium or plastic. This reduces the need for maintenance and keeps the frame weatherproof
- uPVC frames are the most common type. They last a long time and can be recycled.
Do you need ventilation?
Because replacement windows in Burgess Hill will be more airtight than the original single glazed frames, condensation might accumulate 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 limited amount of controlled ventilation.
Condensation can occasionally form on the exterior of new low-e glazing. This is because 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 an issue.
When should you consider improving your double glazing in Burgess Hill.
The majority of properties in Burgess Hill are now fitted with 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 have had double glazing for quite a few years.
Mist or condensation inside glass.
If there's moisture inside the glass sheets, it often means that the seal has broken, letting new moisture in. This usually means that it's time to replace your double glazing. "If it's steamed up and there is condensation, the window has usually had it, and the pane will need to be replaced," says a local Burgess Hill expert.
"My windows have changed to a dull yellow colour."
The uPVC becoming discoloured 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 Burgess Hill. Nowadays, most suppliers guarantee against discolouration but not against minor dulling and fading.
"The hinges on my windows are too tight and they're hard 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 fails to work, your local glass shop or double glazing repair company (see local paper ads or Yellow Pages) will usually be happy to fit a new hinge for you.
"The hinges on my windows are way too loose and my windows slam open when opened."
If you examine the hinge closely, you will notice a small brass screw. This is known as the tensioning screw and if you tighten it fractionally, it should solve the problem. If this doesn't work, your local glass shop or double glazing repair specialist (see Yellow Pages or local paper ads) will usually be happy to fit a new hinge for you.
"Draughts are coming through my windows."
First, check for a slightly bent hinge, a loose handle or a hinge where a screw or rivet has become loose. If it is none of these things the time may have come to replace your double glazing, although it's worth contacting your local Burgess Hill window repair company first to check if the window can be repaired.
