Double glazed windows use two panes of glass with a space between them which produces an insulating barrier, while triple glazed windows have three panes of glass. Both of these 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.
Energy efficient windows can be found in a number of frame styles and materials. They also vary in their energy efficiency, based on how well they stop heat from passing through the window, what degree of 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 noticed on home appliances like your washing machine or fridge. A-rated windows are the most efficient. To check a window's energy efficiency before you buy, look for the energy label.

To find the best double glazed windows for your house in Middlesbrough, ask the following questions:
"How energy efficient are the windows?"
When picking out replacement windows in Middlesbrough, you can check their energy efficiency by looking at the BFRC energy label and Energy Saving Trust Recommended logo. The Energy Saving Trust endorses any double glazed 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 choosing a high rated double glazed window you know you'll be buying the most efficient.
How many glass layers do you need?
Double glazing has two layers of glass with a space of around 16mm between them. There's also the option of triple glazing, which has three sheets of glass. Both A rated triple and double glazed windows are available in Middlesbrough.
What sort 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, usually on one of the inside panes - next to the space. It lets heat and sunlight in but cuts the quantity of heat that can get out again.
What's between the glass panes?
Extremely efficient double glazing windows may use gases like argon, krypton or xenon in the space between the 2 glass panes.
What keeps the glass sheets apart?
All double glazed windows have pane spacers fixed around the interior edges to keep the 2 glass sheets 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 the components to make certain the final window attains the energy efficiency standard claimed. That means you just 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 is only found on glazing that is C rated or above.
Which frame is best for your home in Middlesbrough?
The kind of frame you pick will be determined by your house and your own personal taste. For all kinds of frame material there are double glazed windows available in each energy rating.
- 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.
- uPVC frames are the most common type. They last a long time and 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
Is ventilation needed?
Since replacement windows in Middlesbrough will be far more airtight than the old single glazed frames, condensation may accumulate in your house because of reduced ventilation.
If there's not a decent level of background ventilation in the room, some replacement windows will have trickle vents built into the frame that let in a small amount of controlled ventilation.
Condensation can occasionally occur on the outside surfaces of new low-e glazing. This is because low-e glass is designed to reflect heat back into the property and as a result the exterior pane stays cool and condensation can build up in cold weather - this isn't a problem.
When should you improve your double glazing in Middlesbrough.
The majority of properties in Middlesbrough now have double glazing, but what some folks don't realise is that double glazing (like most other things needs to be maintained and sometimes replaced, if you have had your double glazed windows for a number of years.
Condensation or mist inside the glass.
If there's moisture inside the sheets of glass, it often means the seal has broken, allowing new moisture in. This usually means that it's time to replace your double glazing. "If it's steamed up and there's condensation, the window has usually had it, and the pane will need to be replaced," says a local Middlesbrough expert.
"My windows have gone a dull yellow colour."
The uPVC changing colour over time does not mean the quality of the double glazing has been compromised. You can sometimes find specialised paints to re-paint the frames of your windows in Middlesbrough. Nowadays, most manufacturers guarantee against discolouration but not against minimal fading and dulling.
"The hinges on my windows are too tight and it is 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 resolved. If this does not work, your local glass shop or double glazing repair company (see local paper ads or Yellow Pages) will usually replace the hinge for you.
"The hinges on my windows are too loose and my windows fly wide open when opened."
If you examine the hinge closely, you'll notice a small brass screw. This is the tensioning screw and if you tighten it fractionally, the problem should be resolved. If this fails to work, your local glass shop or double glazing repair specialist (see local paper ads or Yellow Pages) can usually replace the hinge for you.
"There's a draught coming through my windows."
Firstly, check for a loose handle, slightly bent hinge or a hinge where a rivet or screw has become loosened. If it's none of these it may be time to replace your windows, although it's worth contacting your local Middlesbrough double glazing repair company first to see if you can have the window repaired.
