Double glazing can save energy and reduce your energy bills.
Over 18% of the heat your home loses is lost through the windows. Heat that is lost through this ways means that energy is wasted, and money is wasted. If less heat escapes from your home in Thornaby, you can save energy and save money.
Energy efficient double-glazing reduces heat loss and also lowers noise and condensation issues. Installing energy efficient double glazing in your Thornaby home could mean savings of about £135 on bills per year if whole-house single glazing is substituted for double glazing.
All homes lose a certain amount of heat through their windows. Putting in energy efficient glazing is an effective way of reducing your heating bills and keeping your Thornaby house quieter and warmer.
Double glazed windows use 2 sheets of glass with a gap between them which produces an insulating barrier, while triple glazed windows have three panes of glass. Both of these options can deliver a good level of energy efficiency. It isn't the case that you must use triple glazing to gain the best results.
Energy efficient windows are available in an array of frame styles and materials. They also have different levels of energy efficiency, based on how well they stop heat from passing through the window, what degree 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 system to show how energy efficient their products are. This is comparable to the one you may have seen on 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, look for the energy label.

To find the appropriate double glazing windows for your property in Thornaby, you should ask yourself the following questions:
"How energy efficient are the windows?"
When choosing replacement windows in Thornaby, you can check their energy efficiency by looking at the BFRC energy label and Energy Saving Trust Recommended logo. The Energy Saving Trust endorses any double glazed windows rated C or above. The higher the energy rating, the more energy efficient it is. Regrettably, at this time there is no obligation for double glazing manufacturers to label their products, however by opting for a high rated double glazed window you know you will be buying the most efficient.
How many layers of glass do you need?
Double glazing has 2 sheets of glass with a space of around 16mm between them. There's also the option of triple glazing, which has 3 layers of glass. Both A rated triple and double glazed windows are available in Thornaby.
What kind of glass is best?
The most energy efficient glass for double glazing is low emissivity (Low-E) glass. This often has an unnoticeable covering of metal oxide, generally on one of the interior panes - next to the gap. It lets sunlight and heat 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 argon, xenon or krypton in the gap between the 2 panes of glass.
What keeps the glass panes apart?
All double glazing windows have pane spacers arranged around the interior edges to keep the 2 glass sheets apart. For the most efficient window, look for pane spacers that contain little or no metal - often called "warm edge" spacers.
The BFRC window energy rating system checks all of the components to make sure the final window reaches the energy efficient standard stated. This means that you simply need to watch out for the A-G ratings and remember A is best! Alternatively, just keep an eye open for the Energy Saving Trust Recommended logo which will only be found on double glazed windows which are C rated or higher.
Which frame suits your home in Thornaby?
The frame you pick will be determined by your home and your personal taste. 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.
- 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.
- Composite frames have an inner timber frame covered with aluminium or plastic. This reduces the need for maintenance and keeps the frame weatherproof
Do you need ventilation?
Because replacement windows in Thornaby will be far more airtight than your original single glazed frames, condensation may accumulate in your home because of reduced ventilation.
If there's not an adequate level of background ventilation in the room, some replacement windows will have trickle vents built into the frame that allow in a small amount of controlled ventilation.
Condensation can occasionally occur on the outside surfaces of new low-e glazing. This is because low-e glass reflects heat back into the room and as a result the exterior pane stays cool and condensation can build up in cold weather - this is not an issue.
When should you consider improving your double glazing in Thornaby.
The majority of houses in Thornaby are now fitted with double glazing, but what some folks don't realise is that double glazing (like anything else needs to be maintained and sometimes replaced, if you have had double glazed windows for a number of years.
Mist or condensation inside glass.
If there is moisture inside the panes of glass, it often means the sealant 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's condensation, it's usually had it, and the pane will need to be replaced," says a local Thornaby expert.
"My windows have gone a dull yellow colour."
The PVC becoming discoloured over time does not mean the quality of the double glazing has been compromised. You can sometimes find specialised paints to re-paint the frames of your windows in Thornaby. Most suppliers nowadays guarantee against discolouration but not against minimal fading and dulling.
"The hinges on my windows are too tight and they are hard to open."
If you examine the hinge, you will notice a small brass screw. This is the tensioning screw and if you loosen it fractionally, it should solve the problem. If this doesn't work, your local glass outlet or double glazing repair specialist (see Yellow Pages or local paper ads) can usually replace the hinge for you.
"The hinges on my windows are way too loose and my windows slam open when opened."
If you closely examine the hinge, you should notice a small brass screw. This is called the tensioning screw and if you tighten it a little bit, 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) can usually replace the hinge for you.
"There's a draught coming through my windows."
For starters, check for a loose handle, slightly bent hinge or a hinge where a screw or rivet has become loose. If it's none of these you may need to replace your windows, although it is worth contacting your local Thornaby repair company first to see if the window can be repaired.
Double glazing can last for over twenty years, but like most things is liable to 'wear and tear'.
