Double glazed windows use two panes of glass with a void in between which creates an insulating barrier, whilst triple glazed windows have three sheets of glass. Both of those options can deliver a good level of energy efficiency. It's not the case that you have to use triple glazing to get the most energy efficient window.
Energy efficient windows can be bought in a variety of frame materials and styles. They also have different levels of energy efficiency, based on how well they stop heat from passing through the window, what degree of 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 system to show the energy efficiency of their product. This is much like the one you might have observed on domestic appliances such as your fridge, or washing machine. A-rated double glazing is the most efficient. To check the energy efficiency of a window before you buy, look at the energy label.

To find the right double glazing doors and windows for your property in Mildenhall, ask the following questions:
"How energy efficient are the windows?"
When picking replacement windows in Mildenhall, you can check their energy efficiency by looking at the Energy Saving Trust Recommended logo and BFRC energy label. The Energy Saving Trust recommends any double glazed windows rated C or above. The higher the energy rating, the more energy efficient it is. Regrettably, at this time there's no obligation for double glazing producers to label their products, however by opting for a high rated double glazed window you know that you will be purchasing the most efficient.
How many glass layers do you actually need?
Double glazing has 2 panes of glass with a gap of about 16mm between them. There is also the option of triple glazing, which has 3 sheets of glass. Both A rated double and tripled-glazed windows are available for installation in Mildenhall.
What kind of glass is best?
The most energy efficient glass for double glazing is low emissivity (Low-E) glass. This often has an undetectable covering of metal oxide, normally on one of the inner 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 sheets?
Extremely efficient double glazing windows might use gases like krypton, xenon or argon in the gap between the 2 glass panes.
What keeps the panes of glass apart?
All double glazed windows have pane spacers fixed around the inside edges to keep the 2 sheets of glass apart. For the most efficient window, look for pane spacers that contain 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 attains the energy efficiency standard stated. This means that you simply need to watch out for the A-G ratings and don't forget A is better! Alternatively, just keep an eye open for the Energy Saving Trust Recommended logo which will only be found on double glazing that is C rated or higher.
Which frame suits your home in Mildenhall?
The frame you choose will depend on your home and your own personal preference. For all sorts of frame material there are double glazed windows available in each energy rating.
- 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
- 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.
Do you need ventilation?
As replacement windows in Mildenhall will be more airtight than your old single glazed frames, condensation may build up in your house due to the reduced ventilation.
If there isn't a good level of background ventilation in the room, some replacement windows have trickle vents integrated into the frame that let in a small amount of controlled ventilation.
Condensation can occasionally occur on the outside of new low-e glazing. This is because low-e glass is designed to reflect heat back into the room and as a result the external pane stays cool and condensation can build up in cold weather - this isn't an issue.
When should you consider improving your double glazing in Mildenhall.
Most homes in Mildenhall now have double glazing, but what some householders don't realise is that double glazing (like most other things needs to be maintained and sometimes replaced, if you've had double glazing for a number of years.
Mist or condensation inside glass.
If there is moisture inside the sheets of glass, it often means that the sealant has broken, letting new moisture in. This usually means that it's time to replace your double glazing. "If it's steamed up and there is condensation, the window has usually had it, and the pane will have to be replaced," says a local Mildenhall expert.
"My windows have gone a dull yellow colour."
The PVC changing colour over time doesn't mean the quality of the double glazing has been affected. You can sometimes find special paints to re-paint the frames of your windows in Mildenhall. Most suppliers nowadays guarantee against discolouring but not against slight fading and dulling.
"The window hinges are too tight and it's hard to open the window."
If you carefully examine the hinge, you will notice a small brass screw. This is the tensioning screw and if you loosen it slightly, the problem should be solved. If this does not work, your local glass shop or double glazing repair firm (see Yellow Pages or local paper ads) will usually fit a new hinge for you.
"The hinges on my windows are too loose and my windows slam open when opened."
If you closely examine the hinge, you will see a small brass screw. This is the tensioning screw and if you tighten it a little bit, the problem should be resolved. If this fails to work, your local glass outlet or double glazing repair company (see Yellow Pages or local paper ads) will usually replace the hinge for you.
"There is a draught coming through my windows."
First of all, check for a slightly bent hinge, a loose handle or a hinge where a rivet or screw has become loose. If it's none of these things the time may have come to replace your double glazing, although it's worth contacting your local Mildenhall double glazing repair company first to see whether you can have the window repaired.
Double glazing can last for over 20 years, but like most things is susceptible to 'wear and tear'. Before hiring a double glazing company in Mildenhall to replace your windows, get 3 or 4 quotations to make sure you're getting the best deal, and only go with approved and registered Mildenhall double glazing installers, who offer a warranty for their work and windows.
