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 Twyford, you can save energy and save money.
Environment friendly double-glazing reduces heat loss and also lowers condensation and noise issues. The installation of energy efficient double glazing in your Twyford home could mean savings of around one hundred and thirty five pounds on bills each year if your whole-house single glazing is substituted with double glazing.
All houses lose heat through their windows. Installing energy efficient double glazing is an effective way of bringing down your heating bills and keeping your Twyford house quieter and warmer.
Double glazed windows use two sheets of glass with a gap between them which creates an insulating barrier, whilst triple glazed windows have three panes of glass. Both of those solutions can provide a good level of energy efficiency. It's not the case that you have to use triple glazing to get the best results.
Double glazed windows can be found in a number of frame materials and styles. They also vary in their energy efficiency, based on how successful they are at stopping 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 window and door manufacturers helpfully use a window energy rating scheme to show the energy efficiency of their product. This is much like the one you might have noticed on domestic appliances such as your fridge, or washing machine. A-rated double glazing is the most efficient. To check a window's energy efficiency before you buy, look for the energy label.

To find the appropriate double glazed windows for your house in Twyford, you should ask yourself these questions:
"How energy efficient are the windows?"
When choosing replacement windows in Twyford, 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. Unfortunately, at this time there's no obligation for double glazing window producers to label their products, however by choosing a high rated double glazed window you know that you will be buying the most efficient.
How many glass layers do you need?
Double glazing has 2 layers of glass with a space of about 16mm between them. There's also the option of triple glazing, which has 3 panes of glass. Both A rated double and tripled-glazed windows are available in Twyford.
What sort of glass is best?
The most energy efficient glass for double glazed windows is low emissivity (Low-E) glass. This often has an unnoticeable coating of metal oxide, commonly on one of the inner panes - next to the void. 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 argon, krypton or xenon in the space between the 2 glass sheets.
What keeps the glass sheets apart?
All double glazing windows have pane spacers set around the interior edges to keep the 2 sheets of glass apart. For a more efficient window, watch out for pane spacers containing 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 reaches the energy efficient standard claimed. That means you just need to watch out for the A-G ratings and don't forget A is the 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 above.
Which frame is best for your home in Twyford?
The type of frame you choose will depend on your home and your own personal taste. For all frame materials there are double glazed windows available 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.
Do you need ventilation?
As replacement windows in Twyford will be much more airtight than your old single glazed frames, condensation may accumulate in your home because of reduced ventilation.
If there is not a decent 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 form on the outside of new low-e glazing. This is because low-e glass is designed to reflect heat back into the room and as a result the outside pane stays cool and condensation can build up in cold weather - this is not a problem.
When to improve your double glazing in Twyford.
Most properties in Twyford 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 from time to time replaced, if you have had your double glazing for quite some time.
Mist or condensation inside the glass.
If there's moisture inside the panes of glass, 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's steamed up and there is condensation, it's usually had it, and the pane will need to be replaced," says a local Twyford expert.
"My windows have changed to a dull yellow colour."
The PVC changing colour with time does not 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 Twyford. Nowadays, most manufacturers guarantee against discolouration but not against slight fading and dulling.
"The window hinges are too tight and it is hard 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 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 way too loose and my windows fly wide open when opened."
If you examine the hinge closely, you'll notice a small brass screw. This is the tensioning screw and if you tighten it fractionally, the problem should be solved. If this does not work, your local glass shop or double glazing repair firm (see Yellow Pages or local paper ads) will usually fit a new hinge for you.
"There is a draught coming through my windows."
First, 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 the time might have come to replace your double glazing, although it is worthwhile to contact your local Twyford repair company first to see whether the window can be repaired.
