Double glazed windows use 2 panes of glass with a void in between which produces an insulating barrier, whilst triple glazed windows have three sheets of glass. Both of these options can provide a high level of energy efficiency. It's not the case that you have to use triple glazing to get the most energy efficient window.
Double glazed windows can be bought in a variety of frame materials and styles. They also have different levels of energy efficiency, according to 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 the energy efficiency of their product. This is much like the one you might have seen on home appliances such as your fridge, or washing machine. A-rated double glazing is the most efficient. To check the energy efficiency of a window before you buy it, look for the energy label.

To find the right double glazing doors and windows for your property in Cwmbran, ask these questions:
"How energy efficient are the windows?"
When choosing replacement windows in Cwmbran, you can verify 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. Regrettably, at the moment there's no obligation for double glazing producers to label their products, however by picking a high rated double glazed window you know you'll be buying the most efficient.
How many layers of glass do you need?
Double glazing has two layers of glass with a space of approximately sixteen millimetres between them. There is also the option of triple glazing, which has three panes of glass. Both A rated double and tripled-glazed windows are available for installation in Cwmbran.
What sort of glass is better?
The most energy efficient glass for double glazed windows is low emissivity (Low-E) glass. This often has an undetectable coating of metal oxide, typically on one of the interior panes - next to the void. It lets sunlight and heat in but cuts the amount of heat that can get out again.
What is between the sheets?
Very efficient double glazing windows may use gases like krypton, argon or xenon in the void between the two glass panes.
What keeps the glass panes apart?
All double glazed windows have pane spacers attached around the inside edges to keep the 2 glass sheets apart. For a more efficient window, watch out for pane spacers that contain little or no metal - often known as "warm edge" spacers.
The BFRC window energy rating scheme checks all of the components to make certain the final window reaches the energy efficient standard claimed. This means that you simply need to look for the A-G ratings and don't forget A is best! Alternatively, just keep an eye open for the Energy Saving Trust Recommended logo which will only be found on double glazed windows that are C rated or higher.
Which frame is better for your home in Cwmbran?
The type of frame you pick will be determined by your home and your own personal preference. For all frame materials there are double glazed windows available in each energy rating.
- 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
- uPVC frames are the most common type. They last a long time and can be recycled.
Is ventilation needed?
Since replacement windows in Cwmbran will be more airtight than your old single glazed frames, condensation may accumulate in your home due to the reduced ventilation.
If there is not an adequate level of background ventilation in the room, some replacement windows have trickle vents integrated into the frame that allow in a limited amount of controlled ventilation.
Condensation can sometimes form on the outside of new low-e glazing. This is because low-e glass reflects heat back into the home and as a result the exterior pane stays cool and condensation can build up in cold weather - this should not be a problem.
When should you consider improving your double glazing in Cwmbran.
Most properties in Cwmbran now have double glazing installed, but what some householders do not realise is that double glazing (like anything else needs to be maintained and occasionally replaced, if you have had double glazed windows for a number of years.
Condensation or mist inside glass.
If there's moisture inside the glass sheets, it often means that the sealant has broken, letting new moisture in. This usually means that it's time to replace your double glazing. "If it is steamed up and there is condensation, the window has usually had it, and the pane will need to be replaced," says a local Cwmbran expert.
"My windows have gone a dull yellow colour."
The PVC becoming discoloured over time does not mean the quality of the double glazing has been affected. You can often find special paints to re-paint the frames of your windows in Cwmbran. Most manufacturers nowadays guarantee against discolouration but not against minimal dulling and fading.
"The window hinges are too tight and they're difficult to open."
If you examine the hinge, you will notice a small brass screw. This is called the tensioning screw and if you loosen it fractionally, it should solve the problem. If this fails to work, your local glass outlet 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 closely, you should see a small brass screw. This is the tensioning screw and if you tighten it slightly, the problem should be solved. If this does not work, your local glass store or double glazing repair firm (see local paper ads or Yellow Pages) can usually fit a new hinge for you.
"There is a draught 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 it may be time to replace your double glazing, although it's worth contacting your local Cwmbran double glazing repair company first to see whether the window can be repaired.
