"How energy efficient are the windows?"

When choosing replacement windows in Ingatestone, you can verify their energy efficiency by looking at the Energy Saving Trust Recommended logo and BFRC energy label. 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 producers to label their products, however by choosing a high rated double glazing window you know you'll be purchasing the most efficient.

How many layers of glass do you actually need?

Double glazing has 2 panes of glass with a gap of approximately sixteen millimetres between them. There's also the option of triple glazing, which has 3 panes of glass. Both A rated triple and double glazed windows are available in Ingatestone.

What kind of glass is best?

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

What's between the glass panes?

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

What keeps the glass sheets apart?

All double glazing windows have pane spacers attached around the interior edges to keep the two sheets 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 system checks all the components to ensure the final window achieves the energy efficiency standard stated. This means you simply need to look 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 will only be found on double glazed windows which are C rated or above.

Which frame suits your home in Ingatestone?

The frame you choose will be determined by your home and your personal preference. For all sorts of frame material 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.
  • 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.

Do you need ventilation?

Because replacement windows in Ingatestone will be far more airtight than the existing single glazed frames, condensation may accumulate in your house because of reduced ventilation.

If there is not a satisfactory 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 surfaces of new low-e glazing. This is due to the fact that low-e glass is designed to reflect heat back into the property and as a result the outside pane remains cool and condensation can build up in cold weather - this should not be an issue.

"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 Ingatestone expert.
