Double glazed windows use 2 sheets of glass with a gap between them which creates an insulating barrier, while triple glazed windows have three panes of glass. Both of these options can provide a good level of energy efficiency. It is not the case that you have to use triple glazing to gain the most energy efficient window.
Double glazed windows can be found 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, what degree of sunlight travels through the glass, and how little air can leak out or in 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 comparable to the one you might have noticed on appliances like your fridge, or washing machine. A-rated windows are the most effective. To check the energy efficiency of a window before you buy, look for the energy label.

To find the right double glazing doors and windows for your house in Sunninghill, ask these questions:
"How energy efficient are the windows?"
When picking out replacement windows in Sunninghill, you can find their energy efficiency by looking at the BFRC energy label and Energy Saving Trust Recommended logo. 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 manufacturers to label their products, however by opting for a high rated double glazing window you know you will be buying the most efficient.
How many layers of glass do you actually need?
Double glazing has 2 panes of glass with a space of around 16mm between them. There is also the option of triple glazing, which has 3 sheets of glass. Both A rated double and tripled-glazed windows are available for installation in Sunninghill.
What type of glass is best?
The most energy efficient glass for double glazing is low emissivity (Low-E) glass. This sometimes has an undetectable coating of metal oxide, usually 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 is between the sheets?
Extremely efficient double glazing windows might use gases like argon, krypton or xenon in the void between the 2 sheets of glass.
What keeps the sheets of glass apart?
All double glazed windows have pane spacers arranged around the inside edges to keep the 2 glass panes apart. For the most efficient window, look for pane spacers containing little or no metal - often called "warm edge" spacers.
The BFRC window energy rating scheme checks all the components to ensure the final window attains the energy efficient standard advertised. This means you just 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 is only found on glazing that is C rated or above.
Which frame suits your home in Sunninghill?
The frame you choose will depend on your house and your personal preference. For all frame materials there are double glazed windows available in each energy rating.
- Aluminium or steel frames are slim and long-lasting. They 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.
- uPVC frames are the most common type. They last a long time and can be recycled.
Do you need ventilation?
Since replacement windows in Sunninghill will be more airtight than the old single glazed frames, condensation can build up in your house because of reduced ventilation.
If there isn't a good level of background ventilation in the room, some replacement windows have trickle vents integrated into the frame that let in a limited amount of controlled ventilation.
Condensation can sometimes form on the outside 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 exterior pane remains cool and condensation can build up in cold weather - this is not a problem.
When should you consider improving your double glazing in Sunninghill.
The majority of properties in Sunninghill 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 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 panes of glass, it often means that the seal has broken, allowing 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 Sunninghill expert.
"My windows have gone a dull yellow colour."
The uPVC changing colour with time doesn't mean that the quality of the double glazing has been affected. You can often find special paints to re-paint the frames of your windows in Sunninghill. Most suppliers nowadays guarantee against discolouring but not against minimal dulling and fading.
"The hinges on my windows are too tight and it is difficult to open the window."
If you carefully examine the hinge, you will notice a small brass screw. This is the tensioning screw and if you loosen it a little bit, it should solve the problem. If this does not work, your local glass shop or double glazing repair company (see Yellow Pages or local paper ads) will usually be happy to fit a new hinge for you.
"The hinges on my windows are far too loose and my windows fly wide open when opened."
If you examine the hinge closely, you should notice a small brass screw. This is known as 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 Yellow Pages or local paper ads) will usually be happy to replace the hinge for you.
"Draughts are 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 things you may need to replace your windows, although it's worthwhile to contact your local Sunninghill repair company first to see if the window can be repaired.
