All homes lose heat through their windows. Installing double glazing is an effective way of lowering your heating bills and keeping your Sandbach property quieter and warmer.
Double glazed windows use 2 panes of glass with a space in between which produces an insulating barrier, while triple glazed windows have three sheets of glass. Both of those options can provide a high level of energy efficiency. It isn't the case that you must use triple glazing to get the best results.
Double glazed windows can be purchased in an array of frame styles and materials. They also vary in their energy efficiency, based on 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 system to show the energy efficiency of their product. This is similar to the one you would have observed on appliances such as your washing machine or fridge. A-rated double glazing is the most effective. To check a window's energy efficiency before you purchase it, look at the energy label.

To find the correct double glazed windows for your home in Sandbach, you should ask yourself the following questions:
"How energy efficient are the windows?"
When selecting replacement windows in Sandbach, 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 glazing windows rated C or above. The higher the energy rating, the more energy efficient it is. Regrettably, at the moment there is no obligation for double glazing producers to label their products, however by choosing a high rated double glazed window you know that you will be purchasing the most efficient.
How many glass layers do you need?
Double glazing has 2 layers of glass with a gap of around sixteen millimetres between them. There is also the option of triple glazing, which has 3 panes of glass. Both A rated double and tripled-glazed windows are available for installation in Sandbach.
What sort of glass is better?
The most energy efficient glass for double glazing is low emissivity (Low-E) glass. This sometimes has an unnoticeable covering of metal oxide, generally on one of the interior 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 glass panes?
Very efficient double glazing windows may use gases like argon, xenon or krypton in the gap between the 2 panes of glass.
What keeps the sheets of glass apart?
All double glazed windows have pane spacers fixed around the inside 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 the components to make sure the final window reaches the energy efficiency standard that is claimed. That means you simply need to watch out 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 will only be found on double glazing that is C rated or higher.
Which frame is better for your home in Sandbach?
The type of frame you pick will be determined by your property and your own personal preference. For all frame materials there are double glazed windows available in each energy rating.
- 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.
- Aluminium or steel frames are slim and long-lasting. They can be recycled.
Do you need ventilation?
As replacement windows in Sandbach will be far more airtight than your old single glazed frames, condensation may accumulate in your house due to the reduced ventilation.
If there's not a good level of background ventilation in the room, some replacement windows will have trickle vents incorporated into the frame that let in a small amount of controlled ventilation.
Condensation can occasionally form on the outside of new low-e glazing. This is due to the fact that low-e glass reflects heat back into the home 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 Sandbach.
The majority of houses in Sandbach now have double glazing installed, but what some homeowners don't realise is that double glazing (like anything else needs to be maintained and sometimes replaced, if you've had your double glazing for quite a few years.
Condensation or mist inside the glass.
If moisture develops inside the glass sheets, it often means that the sealant has broken, letting new moisture in. This means it is usually 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 need to be replaced," says a local Sandbach expert.
"My windows have gone a dull yellow colour."
The PVC becoming discoloured with 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 Sandbach. Most manufacturers nowadays guarantee against discolouration but not against slight fading and dulling.
"The window hinges are too tight and they're hard 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 fractionally, it should solve the problem. If this doesn't 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.
"The hinges on my windows are far too loose and my windows slam open when opened."
If you examine the hinge closely, you will see a small brass screw. This is the tensioning screw and if you tighten it slightly, it should solve the problem. If this does not work, your local glass store or double glazing repair firm (see local paper ads or Yellow Pages) will usually be willing to fit a new hinge for you.
"Draughts are coming through my windows."
First, check for a slightly bent hinge, a loose handle or a hinge where a rivet or screw has become loose. If it is none of these things you may need to replace your double glazing, although it's worth contacting your local Sandbach window repair company first to see whether the window can be repaired.
Double glazing can last for over twenty years, but like anything else is subject to 'wear and tear'.
