Double glazed windows use two sheets of glass with a gap between them which creates an insulating barrier, whilst triple glazed windows have three sheets of glass. Both options can deliver a high level of energy efficiency. It is 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 materials and styles. They also vary in their energy efficiency, depending on how well they stop 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 window and door manufacturers helpfully use a window energy rating scheme to show the energy efficiency of their product. This is similar to the one you may have seen on appliances such as your fridge, or washing machine. A-rated windows are the most efficient. To check a window's energy efficiency before you buy, look at the energy label.

To find the right double glazing windows for your home in Guildford, ask yourself these questions:

How energy efficient are the windows?

Double Glazing Fitters Guildford (GU1)

When choosing replacement windows in Guildford, 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 the moment there is no obligation for double glazing window 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 need?

Double glazing has two layers of glass with a gap of around 16mm between them. There's also the option of triple glazing, which has three layers of glass. Both A rated double and tripled-glazed windows are available in Guildford.

What type 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, normally on one of the internal panes - next to the gap. It lets sunlight and heat in but cuts the amount of heat that can get out again.

What's between the panes?

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

What keeps the panes apart?

All double glazed windows have pane spacers set around the inside edges to keep the two panes of glass apart. For a more 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 the components to ensure the final window achieves the energy efficient standard claimed. This means that you just need to look for the A-G ratings and remember A is best! Alternatively, just look for the Energy Saving Trust Recommended logo which will only be found on glazing that is C rated or above.

Which frame suits your home in Guildford?

The frame you choose will depend on your home and your personal taste. For all frame materials there are double glazed windows available 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 Guildford will be more airtight than the original single glazed frames, condensation can build up in your house due to the reduced ventilation.

If there is not a sufficient level of background ventilation in the room some replacement windows will 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 remains cool and condensation can build up in cold weather - this isn't a problem.

When to improve your Double Glazing in Guildford.

Most homes in Guildford now have double glazing, but what some people do not realise is that double glazing (like anything else needs to be maintained and sometimes replaced if you have had double glazing for a number of years.

Mist or condensation inside glass.

If there is moisture inside the panes of glass, it often means 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's condensation, it's usually had it and the pane will need to be replaced," says a local Guildford expert.

"My windows have changed to a dull yellow colour."

The PVC changing colour over time does not mean the quality of the double glazing has been compromised. You can often find specialised paints to re-paint the frames of your windows in Guildford. Most suppliers nowadays guarantee against discolouring but not against minor dulling and fading.

"The hinges on my windows are too tight and it is hard 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 slightly, it should solve the problem. If this does not work, your local glass shop or double glazing repair company (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 fly wide open when opened."

If this does not work, your local glass shop or double glazing repair company (see local paper ads or Yellow Pages) can usually replace the hinge for you.

"There is a draught coming through my windows."

First, check for a loose handle, slightly bent hinge or a hinge where a screw or rivet has become loose. If it is none of these you may need to replace your double glazing, although it is worthwhile to contact your local Guildford double glazing repair company first to check if you can have the window repaired.

Double glazing can last for years and years, but like anything else is subject to 'wear and tear'. Before contracting a double glazing company in Guildford to replace your windows, get a few quotes to ensure that you are getting the best deal, and only go with approved and registered Guildford double glazing installers, who offer a guarantee for their work and windows.
