Double glazing saves energy and reduces 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 Fleetwood, you can save energy and save money.
Environment friendly double-glazing cuts heat loss and also reduces condensation and noise issues.

All houses lose heat through their windows. Putting in double glazing is an effective way of lowering your heating bills and keeping your Fleetwood home quieter and warmer.
Double glazed windows use two panes of glass with a space in between which creates an insulating barrier, whilst triple glazed windows have three panes of glass. Both of those options can deliver a good level of energy efficiency. It isn't the case that you must use triple glazing to gain the best results.
Double glazed windows can be purchased in an assortment of frame materials and styles. They also vary in their energy efficiency, according to how successful they are at stopping heat from passing through the window, how much sunlight travels through the glass, and how little air can leak in or out 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 similar to the one you might have seen on 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 buy it, look at the energy label.

To find the correct double glazed windows and doors for your home in Fleetwood, you should ask yourself the following questions:
"How energy efficient are the windows?"
When selecting replacement windows in Fleetwood, 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. Sadly, at this time there is no obligation for double glazing manufacturers to label their products, however by opting for a high rated double glazing window you know you will be buying the most efficient.
How many layers of glass do you actually need?
Double glazing has 2 panes of glass with a gap of around 16mm between them. There is also the option of triple glazing, which has three sheets of glass. Both A rated triple and double glazed windows are available in Fleetwood.
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 covering of metal oxide, commonly on one of the inner panes - next to the gap. It allows heat and sunlight in but cuts the amount of heat that can get out again.
What's between the glass panes?
Really efficient double glazing windows might use gases like krypton, xenon or argon in the gap between the 2 glass panes.
What keeps the panes apart?
All double glazed windows have pane spacers attached around the inside edges to keep the two glass panes apart. For the most efficient window, look for pane spacers containing little or no metal - often known as "warm edge" spacers.
The BFRC window energy rating scheme checks all of the components to ensure the final window achieves the energy efficiency standard claimed. That means you just need to look for the A-G ratings and remember A is better! Alternatively, just look for the Energy Saving Trust Recommended logo which will only be found on glazing that is C rated or higher.
Which frame best suits your home in Fleetwood?
The frame you choose will be determined by your house and your personal preference. For all sorts of frame material there are double glazed windows available 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
- 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.
- uPVC frames are the most common type. They last a long time and can be recycled.
Is ventilation needed?
Because replacement windows in Fleetwood will be more airtight than your original single glazed frames, condensation can build up in your house due to the reduced ventilation.
If there isn't a satisfactory level of background ventilation in the room, some replacement windows have trickle vents built into the frame that let in a small amount of controlled ventilation.
Condensation can occasionally occur on the exterior of new low-e glazing. This is due to the fact that low-e glass reflects heat back into the home and as a result the exterior pane remains cool and condensation can build up in cold weather - this is not a problem.
When should you consider improving your double glazing in Fleetwood.
Most homes in Fleetwood now have double glazing, but what some folks do not realise is that double glazing (like most other things needs to be maintained and occasionally replaced, if you have had double glazing for many years.
Mist or condensation inside the glass.
If moisture develops inside the panes of glass, it often means that the sealant has broken, allowing new moisture in. This means it is usually time to replace your double glazing. "If it's steamed up and there is condensation, it's usually had it, and the pane will need to be replaced," says a local Fleetwood expert.
"My windows have gone a dull yellow colour."
The uPVC changing colour with time doesn't mean that the quality of the double glazing has been affected. You can often find special paints to re-paint the frames of your windows in Fleetwood. Most suppliers nowadays guarantee against discolouring but not against slight dulling and fading.
"The window hinges are too tight and it's difficult to open the window."
If you examine the hinge, you should see a small brass screw. This is the tensioning screw and if you loosen it a little bit, the problem should be solved. If this does not work, your local glass shop or double glazing repair firm (see Yellow Pages or local paper ads) will usually be willing 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, you will see a small brass screw. This is the tensioning screw and if you tighten it slightly, the problem should be resolved. If this doesn't work, your local glass shop or double glazing repair company (see Yellow Pages or local paper ads) will 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 rivet or screw has become loose. If it is none of these things you may need to replace your double glazing, although it is worth contacting your local Fleetwood repair company first to see if you can have the window repaired.
Double glazing can last for years and years, but like anything else is susceptible to 'wear and tear'. Before contracting a double glazing company in Fleetwood to replace your windows, get 2 or 3 estimates to make sure that you're getting a good deal, and only go with approved and registered Fleetwood double glazing contractors, who provide a guarantee for their windows and work.
