All properties lose a certain amount of heat through their windows. Putting in double glazing is an effective way of bringing down your heating bills and keeping your Poole house quieter and warmer.
Double glazed windows use two panes of glass with a space in between which produces an insulating barrier, while triple glazed windows have three sheets of glass. Both solutions can deliver a good level of energy efficiency. It is not the case that you have to use triple glazing to gain the best results.
Energy efficient windows can be found in a number of frame materials and styles. They also have different levels of energy efficiency, subject to how well they stop heat from passing through the window, what amount of 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 the energy efficiency of their product. This is similar to the one you might have observed on appliances like your fridge, or washing machine. A-rated windows are the most efficient. To check a window's energy efficiency before you buy it, look at the energy label.

To find the right double glazing windows for your house in Poole, you should ask yourself these questions:
"How energy efficient are the windows?"
When choosing replacement windows in Poole, 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 glazed 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 manufacturers to label their products, however by opting for a high rated double glazing window you can be certain that you will be buying the most efficient.
How many glass layers do you need?
Double glazing has two layers of glass with a space of about sixteen millimetres between them. There's also the option of triple glazing, which has 3 sheets of glass. Both A rated triple and double glazed windows are available for installation in Poole.
What type of glass is best?
The most energy efficient glass for double glazed windows is low emissivity (Low-E) glass. This often has an unnoticeable covering of metal oxide, commonly on one of the inner panes - next to the gap. It allows heat and sunlight in but cuts the quantity of heat that can get out again.
What is between the sheets?
Extremely efficient double glazing windows might use gases like argon, xenon or krypton in the gap between the two panes of glass.
What keeps the panes of glass apart?
All double glazing windows have pane spacers fixed around the interior edges to keep the 2 sheets of glass apart. For the most 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 ensure the final window attains the energy efficiency standard that is claimed. This means you just need to watch out for the A-G ratings and remember A is the best! Alternatively, just look for the Energy Saving Trust Recommended logo which will only be found on double glazed windows which are C rated or higher.
Which frame is best for your home in Poole?
The type of frame you pick will depend on your property and your own personal preference. For all kinds of frame material there are double glazed windows offered 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.
- 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
- Aluminium or steel frames are slim and long-lasting. They can be recycled.
Is ventilation needed?
Since replacement windows in Poole will be a lot more airtight than your old single glazed frames, condensation can accumulate in your house because of reduced ventilation.
If there isn't a respectable level of background ventilation in the room, some replacement windows have trickle vents incorporated 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 due to the fact that low-e glass reflects heat back into the room and as a result the outside pane remains cool and condensation can build up in cold weather - this isn't a problem.
When should you improve your double glazing in Poole.
The majority of properties in Poole are now fitted with double glazing, but what some householders do not realise is that double glazing (like anything else needs to be maintained and occasionally replaced, if you've had your double glazed windows for quite some time.
Condensation or mist inside the glass.
If moisture develops inside the glass sheets, it often means the seal has broken, letting new moisture in. This means it is usually time to replace your old double glazed windows. "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 Poole expert.
"My windows have changed to a dull yellow colour."
The uPVC becoming discoloured with time doesn't 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 Poole. Most suppliers nowadays guarantee against discolouring but not against minimal dulling and fading.
"The window hinges are too tight and they are difficult to open."
If you carefully examine the hinge, you will notice a small brass screw. This is the tensioning screw and if you loosen it fractionally, the problem should be solved. If this does not work, your local glass store or double glazing repair company (see Yellow Pages or local paper ads) will usually replace the hinge for you.
"The hinges on my windows are much too loose and my windows fly wide 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 a little bit, the problem should be solved. If this doesn't work, your local glass shop or double glazing repair firm (see local paper ads or Yellow Pages) will usually be willing to 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 screw or rivet has become loosened. If it's none of these it may be time to replace your double glazing, although it is worth contacting your local Poole double glazing repair company first to see if the window can be repaired.
Double glazing normally lasts for a good few years, but like most things is subject to 'wear and tear'.
