Double glazed windows can be found in a variety of frame styles and materials.

Some window and door manufacturers helpfully use a window energy rating scheme to show the energy efficiency of their product.

To check a window's energy efficiency before you purchase it, look for the energy label.

To find the best double glazing windows for your home in Dumbarton, ask the following questions:

"How energy efficient are the windows?"

Double Glazing Fitters Dumbarton (G82)

When picking replacement windows in Dumbarton, you can find their energy efficiency by looking at the BFRC energy label and Energy Saving Trust Recommended logo. The Energy Saving Trust recommends any double glazing windows rated C or above. The higher the energy rating, the more energy efficient it is. Unfortunately, at the moment there's no obligation for double glazing window manufacturers to label their products, however by picking a high rated double glazed window you know that you will be purchasing the most efficient.

How many layers of glass do you actually need?

Double glazing has 2 sheets of glass with a space of around 16mm between them. There's 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 Dumbarton.

What kind of glass is best?

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 interior panes - next to the void. It allows heat and sunlight in but cuts the amount of heat that can get out again.

What is between the panes?

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

What keeps the panes of glass apart?

All double glazing windows have pane spacers fixed around the inside edges to keep the 2 panes of glass apart. For a more efficient window, look for pane spacers containing little or no metal - often called "warm edge" spacers.

The BFRC window energy rating scheme checks all the components to ensure the final window reaches the energy efficient standard that is claimed. This means you simply need to watch out for the A-G ratings and keep in mind A is better! Alternatively, just keep an eye open for the Energy Saving Trust Recommended logo which is only found on double glazing that is C rated or above.

Which frame is best for your home in Dumbarton?

The frame you choose will depend on your home and your own personal taste. For all frame materials 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.
  • uPVC frames are the most common type. They last a long time and can be recycled.
  • 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

Is ventilation needed?

Because replacement windows in Dumbarton will be more airtight than the existing single glazed frames, condensation may accumulate in your home due to the reduced ventilation.

If there's not a respectable level of background ventilation in the room, some replacement windows have trickle vents incorporated into the frame that let 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 stays cool and condensation can build up in cold weather - this is not an issue.

When to improve your double glazing in Dumbarton.

Most houses in Dumbarton now have double glazing, but what some property owners don't realise is that double glazing (like most other things needs to be maintained and sometimes replaced, if you have had your double glazing for a number of years.

Mist or condensation inside glass.

If moisture develops inside the panes of glass, it often means that the sealant has broken, letting 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, the window has usually had it, and the pane will have to be replaced," says a local Dumbarton 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 affected. You can often find specialised paints to re-paint the frames of your windows in Dumbarton. Nowadays, most manufacturers guarantee against discolouration but not against minor fading and dulling.

"The window hinges are too tight and it is difficult 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 slightly, the problem should be solved. If this does not work, your local glass outlet or double glazing repair firm (see local paper ads or Yellow Pages) can usually replace the hinge for you.

"The hinges on my windows are too loose and my windows slam open when opened."

If this does not work, your local glass outlet or double glazing repair firm (see local paper ads or Yellow Pages) can usually fit a new hinge for you.

"There's a draught coming through my windows."

Firstly, check for a slightly bent hinge, a loose handle or a hinge where a screw or rivet has become loosened. If it is none of these it may be time to replace your windows, although it's worth contacting your local Dumbarton window repair company first to see whether the window can be repaired.
