Double glazed windows use 2 sheets of glass with a gap in between which creates an insulating barrier, whilst triple glazed windows have three sheets of glass. Both of those options can deliver a high level of energy efficiency. It isn't the case that you have to use triple glazing to get the best results.
Double glazed windows can be found in a variety of frame styles and materials. They also have different standards of energy efficiency, determined by how well they stop heat from passing through the window, how much 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 system to show how energy efficient their products are. This is much like the one you may have seen on home appliances such as your washing machine or fridge. A-rated windows are the most efficient. To check the energy efficiency of a window before you purchase it, look at the energy label.

To find the correct double glazed windows and doors for your property in Cambuslang, you should ask yourself these questions:
"How energy efficient are the windows?"
When selecting replacement windows in Cambuslang, 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 glazing windows rated C or above. The higher the energy rating, the more energy efficient it is. Sadly, at this time there's no obligation for double glazing manufacturers to label their products, however by choosing a high rated double glazing window you know that you'll be purchasing the most efficient.
How many layers of glass do you need?
Double glazing has two panes of glass with a gap of approximately 16mm between them. There is also the option of triple glazing, which has three sheets of glass. Both A rated double and tripled-glazed windows are available for installation in Cambuslang.
What kind of glass is better?
The most energy efficient glass for double glazed windows is low emissivity (Low-E) glass. This often has an undetectable covering of metal oxide, generally on one of the interior 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 glass panes?
Very efficient double glazing windows might use gases like xenon, krypton or argon in the space between the two glass sheets.
What keeps the glass panes apart?
All double glazing windows have pane spacers set around the interior edges to keep the two sheets of glass apart. For a more efficient window, watch out 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 attains the energy efficient standard advertised. This means you just need to look for the A-G ratings and remember A is best! Alternatively, just look for the Energy Saving Trust Recommended logo which is only found on double glazing that is C rated or higher.
Which frame suits your home in Cambuslang?
The type of frame you pick will depend on your house and your personal preference. For all frame materials there are double glazed windows offered in each energy rating.
- 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.
- uPVC frames are the most common type. They last a long time and can be recycled.
Do you need ventilation?
As replacement windows in Cambuslang will be more airtight than the existing single glazed frames, condensation can accumulate in your house because of reduced ventilation.
If there is not a decent level of background ventilation in the room, some replacement windows have trickle vents built into the frame that allow in a small amount of controlled ventilation.
Condensation can occasionally form on the outside surfaces of new low-e glazing. This is because low-e glass reflects heat back into the room and as a result the external pane remains cool and condensation can build up in cold weather - this should not be an issue.
When to improve your double glazing in Cambuslang.
The majority of houses in Cambuslang now have double glazing installed, but what some folks do not realise is that double glazing (like most other things needs to be maintained and sometimes replaced, if you have had double glazing for a number of years.
Mist or condensation inside the glass.
If there's moisture inside the glass sheets, it often means the seal has broken, allowing new moisture in. This usually means that it's time to replace your old double glazed windows. "If it's steamed up and there is condensation, the window has usually had it, and the pane will have to be replaced," says a local Cambuslang expert.
"My windows have changed to a dull yellow colour."
The uPVC becoming discoloured over time does not mean the quality of the double glazing has been compromised. You can sometimes find specialised paints to re-paint the frames of your windows in Cambuslang. Most suppliers nowadays guarantee against discolouration but not against slight fading and dulling.
"The window hinges are too tight and it is hard 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, the problem should be resolved. If this fails to work, your local glass store 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 much too loose and my windows fly wide open when opened."
If you examine the hinge closely, 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 doesn't work, your local glass store 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."
First of all, check for a loose handle, slightly bent hinge or a hinge where a screw or rivet has become loosened. If it is none of these things you may need to replace your windows, although it is worthwhile to contact your local Cambuslang repair company first to see whether the window can be repaired.
Double glazing normally lasts for a good few years, but like anything else is susceptible to 'wear and tear'. Before hiring a double glazing firm in Cambuslang to replace your windows, get two or three quotations to ensure that you're getting the best deal, and only go with registered and approved Cambuslang double glazing technicians, who provide a guarantee for their work and windows.
