Double glazing can save energy and reduce your heating bills.
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 Droylsden, you can save energy and save money.
Environmentally friendly double-glazing cuts heat loss and also reduces condensation and noise issues. The installation of energy efficient double glazing in your Droylsden home could mean savings of approximately £135 on bills yearly if your whole-house single glazing is substituted with double glazing.
All homes lose heat through their windows. Installing energy efficient glazing is an effective way of lowering your energy bills and keeping your Droylsden house warmer and quieter.
Double glazed windows use two panes of glass with a void in between which produces an insulating barrier, whilst triple glazed windows have three panes of glass. Both of these options can provide a good level of energy efficiency. It's not the case that you must use triple glazing to get the most energy efficient window.
Energy efficient windows can be bought in a number of frame styles and materials. They also have different levels of energy efficiency, based on how successful they are at stopping heat from passing through the window, what amount 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 system to show the energy efficiency of their product. This is much like the one you would have observed on domestic appliances such as your washing machine or fridge. A-rated double glazing is the most effective. To check a window's energy efficiency before you buy, look for the energy label.

To find the correct double glazed windows and doors for your home in Droylsden, you should ask yourself these questions:
"How energy efficient are the windows?"
When selecting replacement windows in Droylsden, 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 glazing 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 window producers to label their products, however by picking a high rated double glazed window you can ensure 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 around sixteen millimetres between them. There's also the option of triple glazing, which has three layers of glass. Both A rated triple and double glazed windows are available in Droylsden.
What type of glass is better?
The most energy efficient glass for double glazing is low emissivity (Low-E) glass. This often has an undetectable covering of metal oxide, typically on one of the inside 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 panes?
Really efficient double glazing windows might use gases like xenon, argon or krypton in the space between the two glass panes.
What keeps the panes apart?
All double glazing windows have pane spacers attached around the inside edges to keep the two panes of glass apart. For a more efficient window, look for pane spacers that contain little or no metal - often referred to as "warm edge" spacers.
The BFRC window energy rating scheme checks all the components to make sure the final window achieves the energy efficiency standard claimed. This means that you just need to look for the A-G ratings and remember A is best! Alternatively, just keep an eye open for the Energy Saving Trust Recommended logo which is only found on double glazed windows that are C rated or higher.
Which frame best suits your home in Droylsden?
The kind of frame you choose will depend on your property and your own personal taste. For all frame materials there are double glazed windows available 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.
- 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.
- uPVC frames are the most common type. They last a long time and can be recycled.
Is ventilation needed?
As replacement windows in Droylsden will be far more airtight than your original single glazed frames, condensation may build up in your home because of reduced ventilation.
If there's not a sufficient level of background ventilation in the room, some replacement windows have trickle vents built into the frame that let in a limited amount of controlled ventilation.
Condensation can sometimes form on the outside surfaces 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 is not an issue.
When should you improve your double glazing in Droylsden.
The majority of houses in Droylsden now have double glazing, but what some homeowners do not realise is that double glazing (like most other things needs to be maintained and occasionally replaced, if you've had your double glazed windows for many years.
Condensation or mist inside glass.
If moisture develops inside the glass panes, it often means the seal has broken, allowing new moisture in. This usually means that it's time to replace your double glazed windows. "If it's steamed up and there's condensation, it's usually had it, and the pane will need to be replaced," says a local Droylsden expert.
"My windows have gone a dull yellow colour."
The uPVC becoming discoloured over time doesn't mean that the quality of the double glazing has been affected. You can sometimes find specialised paints to re-paint the frames of your windows in Droylsden. Nowadays, most suppliers guarantee against discolouring but not against slight dulling and fading.
"The hinges on my windows are too tight and they are difficult to open."
If you examine the hinge, you should see a small brass screw. This is the tensioning screw and if you loosen it fractionally, it should solve the problem. If this fails to work, your local glass store or double glazing repair firm (see Yellow Pages or local paper ads) will usually be happy to replace the hinge for you.
"The hinges on my windows are far too loose and my windows slam open when opened."
If you examine the hinge, you'll notice a small brass screw. This is the tensioning screw and if you tighten it fractionally, the problem should be solved. If this does not work, your local glass store or double glazing repair company (see Yellow Pages or local paper ads) can usually 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 rivet or screw has become loose. If it's none of these things the time may have come to replace your double glazing, although it's worthwhile to contact your local Droylsden repair company first to check whether the window can be repaired.
