Double glazing will help you to lower your carbon footprint.
Double glazing saves energy and reduces your heating bills.
Over 18% of the heat your home loses is lost through the windows. Heat that is lost through this ways means that energy is wasted, and money is wasted. If less heat escapes from your home in Neath, you can save energy and save money.
Environment friendly double-glazing cuts heat loss and also reduces noise and condensation problems.

All houses lose a certain amount of heat through their windows. Putting in double glazing is an effective way of reducing your energy bills and keeping your Neath home warmer and quieter.
Double glazed windows use two panes of glass with a void in between which produces an insulating barrier, while triple glazed windows have three panes of glass. Both 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 styles and materials. They also vary in their energy efficiency, according to how successful they are at stopping 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 how energy efficient their products are. This is comparable to the one you might have noticed on domestic appliances like your washing machine or fridge. A-rated double glazing is the most efficient. To check the energy efficiency of a window before you purchase it, look at the energy label.

To find the correct double glazing windows and doors for your home in Neath, ask yourself the following questions:
"How energy efficient are the windows?"
When picking replacement windows in Neath, you can find 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 producers to label their products, however by opting for a high rated double glazing window you know you will be purchasing the most efficient.
How many glass layers do you need?
Double glazing has 2 sheets of glass with a gap of about sixteen millimetres between them. There is also the option of triple glazing, which has three sheets of glass. Both A rated double and tripled-glazed windows are available for installation in Neath.
What type of glass is better?
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 inside panes - next to the space. It allows sunlight and heat in but cuts the quantity of heat that can get out again.
What is between the sheets?
Really efficient double glazing windows might use gases like xenon, krypton or argon in the space between the 2 glass panes.
What keeps the panes apart?
All double glazed windows have pane spacers arranged around the interior edges to keep the two glass sheets apart. For a more efficient window, watch out for pane spacers that contain little or no metal - often called "warm edge" spacers.
The BFRC window energy rating scheme checks all the components to ensure the final window reaches the energy efficient standard claimed. This means you simply need to watch out for the A-G ratings and keep in mind A is the best! Alternatively, just look for the Energy Saving Trust Recommended logo which will only be found on double glazing that is C rated or above.
Which frame is best for your home in Neath?
The type of frame you pick will depend on your property and your personal preference. For all kinds of frame material there are double glazed windows offered in each energy rating.
- 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.
- uPVC frames are the most common type. They last a long time and can be recycled.
- Aluminium or steel frames are slim and long-lasting. They can be recycled.
Is ventilation needed?
Because replacement windows in Neath will be far more airtight than the old single glazed frames, condensation might accumulate in your home due to the reduced ventilation.
If there isn't a satisfactory level of background ventilation in the room, some replacement windows will have trickle vents incorporated into the frame that let in a limited amount of controlled ventilation.
Condensation can sometimes form on the outside surfaces of new low-e glazing. This is because low-e glass is designed to reflect heat back into the home and as a result the exterior pane stays cool and condensation can build up in cold weather - this isn't a problem.
When to improve your double glazing in Neath.
Most properties in Neath are now fitted with double glazing, but what some homeowners do not realise is that double glazing (like anything else needs to be maintained and sometimes replaced, if you have had double glazing for quite a few years.
Mist or condensation inside the glass.
If there's moisture inside the sheets of glass, it often means that the seal has broken, allowing new moisture in. This means it is usually time to replace your double glazing. "If it is steamed up and there is condensation, the window has usually had it, and the pane will need to be replaced," says a local Neath expert.
"My windows have gone a dull yellow colour."
The uPVC changing colour with time does not mean that the quality of the double glazing has been affected. You can sometimes find specialised paints to re-paint the frames of your windows in Neath. Most manufacturers nowadays guarantee against discolouration but not against minor fading and dulling.
"The hinges on my windows are too tight and it's difficult to open the window."
If you examine the hinge, you will notice a small brass screw. This is called the tensioning screw and if you loosen it fractionally, it should solve the problem. If this does not work, your local glass outlet or double glazing repair specialist (see Yellow Pages or local paper ads) will usually fit a new hinge for you.
"The hinges on my windows are way too loose and my windows slam open when opened."
If you closely examine the hinge, you'll see a small brass screw. This is called the tensioning screw and if you tighten it fractionally, the problem should be solved. If this doesn't work, your local glass store or double glazing repair company (see Yellow Pages or local paper ads) can usually fit a new hinge for you.
"There's a draught coming through my windows."
For starters, check for a slightly bent hinge, a loose handle or a hinge where a screw or rivet has become loosened. If it's none of these you may need to replace your windows, although it's worth contacting your local Neath repair company first to check whether you can have the window repaired.
Double glazing can last for over 20 years, but like anything else is susceptible to 'wear and tear'. Before contracting a double glazing specialist in Neath to replace your windows, get three or four estimates to ensure that you're getting a good deal, and only go with approved and registered Neath double glazing contractors, who offer a warranty for their work and windows.
