Double glazed windows can be purchased in an assortment of frame styles and materials. They also vary in their energy efficiency, subject to how well they stop heat from passing through the window, how much sunlight gets through the glass, and how little air can leak in or out around the window.

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

"How energy efficient are the windows?"

Double Glazing Fitters Forest Row (RH18)

When picking out replacement windows in Forest Row, 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. Unfortunately, at the moment there's no obligation for double glazing producers to label their products, however by opting for a high rated double glazed window you can be certain that you will be buying the most efficient.

How many layers of glass do you need?

Double glazing has two layers of glass with a gap of approximately 16mm between them. There is also the option of triple glazing, which has 3 panes of glass. Both A rated double and tripled-glazed windows are available in Forest Row.

What type of glass is better?

The most energy efficient glass for double glazed windows is low emissivity (Low-E) glass. This often has an unnoticeable coating of metal oxide, normally on one of the interior panes - next to the gap. It allows sunlight and heat in but cuts the amount of heat that can get out again.

What is between the glass panes?

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

What keeps the panes apart?

All double glazed windows have pane spacers fixed around the interior edges to keep the two glass panes apart. For a more efficient window, watch out for pane spacers that contain little or no metal - often referred to as "warm edge" spacers.

The BFRC window energy rating system checks all of the components to make certain the final window achieves the energy efficiency standard claimed. This means that you simply need to watch out for the A-G ratings and keep in mind A is better! Alternatively, just look for the Energy Saving Trust Recommended logo which is only found on double glazed windows which are C rated or higher.

Which frame suits your home in Forest Row?

The kind of frame you pick will be determined by your property and your own personal preference. For all kinds 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
  • uPVC frames are the most common type. They last a long time and 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.
  • Aluminium or steel frames are slim and long-lasting. They can be recycled.

Is ventilation needed?

As replacement windows in Forest Row will be a lot more airtight than the original single glazed frames, condensation can accumulate in your home because of reduced ventilation.

If there's not an adequate 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 form on the exterior of new low-e glazing. This is because low-e glass reflects heat back into the home and as a result the outside pane stays cool and condensation can build up in cold weather - this is not a problem.
