Double glazed windows use 2 panes of glass with a space between them which produces an insulating barrier, while triple glazed windows have three sheets of glass. Both of these options can deliver a good level of energy efficiency. It is not the case that you must use triple glazing to get the most energy efficient window.
Energy efficient windows can be purchased in a number of frame materials and styles. They also have different standards of energy efficiency, depending on how well they stop heat from passing through the window, what amount of sunlight gets through the glass, and how little air can leak out or in around the window.
Some door and window 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 home appliances such as your washing machine or fridge. A-rated windows are the most effective. To check a window's energy efficiency before you buy it, look at the energy label.

To find the best double glazed doors and windows for your house in Saltash, ask yourself the following questions:
"How energy efficient are the windows?"
When selecting replacement windows in Saltash, you can find 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 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 know you'll be buying the most efficient.
How many layers of glass do you need?
Double glazing has 2 layers of glass with a space of around sixteen millimetres between them. There's also the option of triple glazing, which has 3 layers of glass. Both A rated double and tripled-glazed windows are available in Saltash.
What type of glass is best?
The most energy efficient glass for double glazed windows is low emissivity (Low-E) glass. This sometimes has an unnoticeable coating of metal oxide, typically on one of the inner panes - next to the gap. It lets heat and sunlight in but cuts the quantity of heat that can get out again.
What's between the sheets?
Very efficient double glazing windows may use gases like krypton, argon or xenon in the gap between the 2 glass sheets.
What keeps the glass sheets apart?
All double glazed windows have pane spacers set around the interior edges to keep the two glass sheets apart. For the most efficient window, watch out for pane spacers that contain little or no metal - often known as "warm edge" spacers.
The BFRC window energy rating scheme checks all of the components to ensure the final window attains the energy efficient standard claimed. This 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 double glazed windows that are C rated or above.
Which frame suits your home in Saltash?
The type of frame you pick will be determined by your property and your personal preference. For all frame materials there are double glazed windows available 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
- 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.
- Aluminium or steel frames are slim and long-lasting. They can be recycled.
Is ventilation needed?
As replacement windows in Saltash will be far more airtight than the old single glazed frames, condensation may build up in your home because of reduced ventilation.
If there isn't 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 form on the outside surfaces of new low-e glazing. This is due to the fact that low-e glass is designed to reflect heat back into the property and as a result the external pane remains cool and condensation can build up in cold weather - this isn't an issue.
When should you consider improving your double glazing in Saltash.
The majority of properties in Saltash now have double glazing installed, but what some property owners do not realise is that double glazing (like anything else needs to be maintained and sometimes replaced, if you've had double glazed windows for quite a few years.
Condensation or mist inside the glass.
If moisture develops inside the glass panes, it often means the sealant has broken, letting new moisture in. This usually means that it's time to replace your old double glazed windows. "If it is steamed up and there is condensation, the window has usually had it, and the pane will have to be replaced," says a local Saltash expert.
"My windows have changed to a dull yellow colour."
The uPVC becoming discoloured over time does not mean that the quality of the double glazing has been compromised. You can sometimes find specialised paints to re-paint the frames of your windows in Saltash. Most suppliers nowadays guarantee against discolouration but not against minor fading and dulling.
"The window hinges are too tight and they're hard to open."
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 fails to work, your local glass shop 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 examine the hinge closely, you'll see a small brass screw. This is the tensioning screw and if you tighten it a little bit, the problem should be solved. If this fails to work, your local glass outlet or double glazing repair company (see Yellow Pages or local paper ads) will usually be happy to fit a new hinge for you.
"Draughts are 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 you may need to replace your double glazing, although it is worthwhile to contact your local Saltash double glazing repair company first to see if you can have the window repaired.
Double glazing usually lasts for many years, but like most things is susceptible to 'wear and tear'. Before contacting a double glazing firm in Saltash to replace your windows, get three or four quotes to ensure that you are getting a good deal, and only consider registered and approved Saltash double glazing fitters, who provide a warranty for their work and windows.

Skip Hire Saltash
Let's be honest, most home improvements and garden revamps in Saltash tend to generate a fair amount of waste. While double glazing installation isn't one of those jobs that usually creates lots of waste, that is not invariably the case, and it will depend on the size and scale of your installation. Now some double glazing companies will be glad to take this waste away for you, and recycle it in an environmentally friendly way, whilst others will just leave you to dispose of it on your own.
Whether you're left with doing this yourself, or the tradesman is dealing with it, a skip will often be required.
