Can you explain how double-glazing works?
Double glazing comprises of two panes of glass in a window frame. In the middle of the two panes is a layer of argon gas which helps to keep heat inside, therefore gives you better energy efficiency. The second pane of glass helps to minimize noise from the outside, so your premises is not disturbed by traffic, conversations and everyday exterior noise. Finally, two panes of glass give you more security because of the additional strength.
Can you explain how triple glazing works?
Triple glazing consists of three panes of glass and gives you excellent energy efficiency. In addition, these panes include thermal inserts which help to minimize cool loss, so cool is kept inside. This helps to dramatically reduce electric bills during the hot months of the year.
I’ve heard of window efficiency ratings. Can you explain what they mean?
Window energy ratings work similarly to electrical energy ratings and range from A++ to G. A++ is the highest rating and G the lowest. Building regulations state that all windows must be at least C-rated. Every window should have a label explaining what the rating is. The actual rating is calculated based on various elements:
U value (thermal transmittance, how much heat escapes through the glass)
G value (solar factor, how much energy comes from the sun)
L value (air leakage, how much air is leaked through the window)
Every window has a unique label displaying how it conforms.
Why do I get condensation on my windows?
Condensation comes from many different factors including people, plants, animals, and heating. Good ventilation helps to reduce condensation so if your windows have trickle vents across the top, keep them open. Double and triple glazing helps to reduce condensation because both types of windows are designed to retain internal heat and prevent transference of cold getting air inside.
