Double glazed windows use two sheets of glass with a void between them which produces an insulating barrier, while triple glazed windows have three panes of glass. Both of those options can provide a high level of energy efficiency. It's not the case that you have to use triple glazing to gain the most energy efficient window.

Energy efficient windows are available in a variety of frame styles and materials. They also have different standards of energy efficiency, determined by how successful they are at stopping heat from passing through the window, what degree of sunlight travels 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 scheme to show how energy efficient their products are. This is similar to the one you may have seen on domestic appliances like your fridge, or washing machine. A-rated windows are the most effective. To check the energy efficiency of a window before you purchase it, look for the energy label.

To find the right double glazed windows and doors for your home in Girvan, ask yourself these questions:

"How energy efficient are the windows?"

When picking replacement windows in Girvan, you can check their energy efficiency by looking at the Energy Saving Trust Recommended logo and BFRC energy label. 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 this time there is no obligation for double glazing window producers to label their products, however by picking a high rated double glazed window you can be sure that you'll be purchasing the most efficient.

How many glass layers do you actually need?

Double glazing has 2 sheets of glass with a gap of approximately 16mm between them. There is also the option of triple glazing, which has three layers of glass. Both A rated triple and double glazed windows are available for installation in Girvan.

What sort of glass is best?

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

What is between the panes?

Extremely efficient double glazing windows may use gases like argon, krypton or xenon in the gap between the 2 sheets of glass.

What keeps the glass panes apart?

All double glazed windows have pane spacers attached around the inside edges to keep the 2 sheets of glass apart. For the most efficient window, look for pane spacers containing little or no metal - often referred to as "warm edge" spacers.

The BFRC window energy rating system checks all the components to make sure the final window achieves the energy efficiency standard advertised. 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 will only be found on glazing that is C rated or above.

Which frame is best for your home in Girvan?

The kind of frame you choose will be determined by your home and your own personal preference. For all frame materials there are double glazed windows offered in each energy rating.

  • 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.
  • Composite frames have an inner timber frame covered with aluminium or plastic. This reduces the need for maintenance and keeps the frame weatherproof

Do you need ventilation?

Because replacement windows in Girvan will be a lot more airtight than the original single glazed frames, condensation might accumulate in your house due to the reduced ventilation.

If there's not a satisfactory 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 outside 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.
