Both solutions can deliver a good level of energy efficiency. It is not the case that you must use triple glazing to gain the most energy efficient window.

Energy efficient windows are available in a number of frame styles and materials. They also have different levels of energy efficiency, subject to how well they stop heat from passing through the window, what amount 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 scheme to show the energy efficiency of their product. This is much like the one you would have seen on domestic appliances such as your fridge, or washing machine. A-rated windows are the most efficient. To check a window's energy efficiency before you purchase it, look for the energy label.

To find the appropriate double glazing windows for your property in Pitsea, ask the following questions:

"How energy efficient are the windows?"

Double Glazing Fitters Pitsea (SS13)

When selecting replacement windows in Pitsea, 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. Sadly, at this time there's no obligation for double glazing producers to label their products, however by picking a high rated double glazed window you can be certain that you'll be buying the most efficient.

How many layers of glass do you actually need?

Double glazing has two sheets of glass with a space of approximately 16mm between them. There is also the option of triple glazing, which has 3 layers of glass. Both A rated double and tripled-glazed windows are available for installation in Pitsea.

What kind of glass is best?

The most energy efficient glass for double glazed windows is low emissivity (Low-E) glass. This often has an undetectable covering of metal oxide, normally on one of the interior panes - next to the space. It lets heat and sunlight in but cuts the quantity of heat that can get out again.

What is between the glass panes?

Extremely efficient double glazing windows might use gases like xenon, krypton or argon in the void between the 2 glass panes.

What keeps the sheets of glass apart?

All double glazed windows have pane spacers attached around the inside edges to keep the 2 glass panes apart. For a more efficient window, watch out for pane spacers containing little or no metal - often referred to as "warm edge" spacers.

The BFRC window energy rating system checks all the components to make sure the final window attains the energy efficiency standard stated. That means you simply need to watch out for the A-G ratings and keep in mind A is the best! Alternatively, just keep an eye open for the Energy Saving Trust Recommended logo which is only found on double glazed windows which are C rated or above.

Which frame is better for your home in Pitsea?

The type of frame you pick will depend on your home and your personal preference. For all frame materials there are double glazed windows offered 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.

Is ventilation needed?

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

If there is not an adequate level of background ventilation in the room, some replacement windows have trickle vents incorporated into the frame that allow 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 property and as a result the outside pane remains cool and condensation can build up in cold weather - this is not an issue.

When to improve your double glazing in Pitsea.

Most properties in Pitsea now have double glazing installed, but what some folks don't realise is that double glazing (like anything else needs to be maintained and from time to time replaced, if you have had double glazed windows for many years.

Mist or condensation inside the glass.

If there's moisture inside the panes of glass, it often means that the seal has broken, letting new moisture in. This means it is usually time to replace your double glazed windows. "If it is steamed up and there is condensation, it's usually had it, and the pane will need to be replaced," says a local Pitsea expert.

"My windows have gone a dull yellow colour."

The PVC becoming discoloured over time does not mean that the quality of the double glazing has been compromised. You can often find special paints to re-paint the frames of your windows in Pitsea. Most manufacturers nowadays guarantee against discolouration but not against minor dulling and fading.

"The window hinges are too tight and they're difficult to open."

If you carefully examine the hinge, you should see a small brass screw. This is called the tensioning screw and if you loosen it a little bit, the problem should be solved. If this does not work, your local glass outlet 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 much too loose and my windows slam open when opened."

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

"There is a draught coming through my windows."

Firstly, check for a slightly bent hinge, a loose handle or a hinge where a screw or rivet has become loosened. If it is none of these things it may be time to replace your windows, although it is worth contacting your local Pitsea repair company first to see if the window can be repaired.

Double glazing can last for many years, but like most things is susceptible to 'wear and tear'.
