Double Glazing for Energy Efficient Homes

There are a lot of factors to consider when choosing the double glazing solutions for your home. With so many options available, it can be hard to know where to start. Double glazing is the natural choice for most homeowners but you’ll still need to choose which style windows and doors will suit you best.

At Styleglaze we’ll guide you through the options to make sure that you choose the right windows for your home.

What is Double Glazing?

Double glazing has two panes of glass, with a space in between them. This space is typically filled with argon gas to insulate the window and reduce heat transfer. Double-glazed windows are more energy efficient than single-pane windows and help to keep your home warmer in winter. The cold hits the outside pane of glass but the argon gas acts like a blanket to stop it from penetrating the second pane of glass and reducing the temperature inside.

This is why we don’t see Jack Frost painting his icy pictures on our windows nowadays.

Aluminium Double Glazing

It used to be thought that aluminium windows were cold. This is because of heat transfer. Metal is an excellent temperature conductor. This means that when cold touches the frame, it could transfer the cold to the walls or inside your home. Good quality aluminium has a thermal break which means that the cold is blocked. Our aluminium double glazing exceeds government recommendations for thermal efficiency.

uPVC Double-Glazing

UPVC double glazing is the most popular choice for homeowners. Our double-glazed windows exceed requirements for thermal efficiency, are available in any style you can imagine and are exceptionally durable.

uPVC double-glazed windows have aluminium frames inside. This contributes to the long-lasting quality of your windows and stops them from warping which causes gaps and therefore draughts.

Casement Windows for Classic Style

Casement windows are one of the most popular styles of double-glazing, thanks to their flexibility, energy efficiency, and classic look. Casement windows are hinged on one side, which could be the top or bottom, and open outward. This allows for maximum ventilation and views, making them an excellent double-glazing option for any room in your home.

They suit almost any home and are available in aluminium and uPVC. uPVC casement windows are by far the most chosen new windows.

Flush Windows that Look Like Timber

Flush windows look great with any house style, but they are particularly popular in traditional residences. Flush sash double-glazing profiles are a great alternative to wooden windows and doors. The profile looks similar to that of timber so is sympathetic to historical styles while also incorporating modern double-glazing technology.

Flush windows are more popular in uPVC but recently aluminium window manufacturers have also come up with great alternatives to timber.

Double Glazing Choices

There are two major choices to make when considering double-glazing for your home. The material – aluminium or uPVC, and the Glazing – double-glazing or triple-glazing. Both affect the performance and the price. We love all of the options so will offer unbiased advice.

Aluminium or uPVC Double-Glazing?

When compared to aluminium windows, uPVC double-glazing comes out on top in terms of cost and is an estimated 20% cheaper than aluminium. You also have more variety for quality standards with uPVC double-glazing. You can buy extremely cheap windows but they are rarely worth it in the long term. Stretching the budget a bit could prove well worth it when build quality and finish are taken into account regardless of which material you choose.

Double Glazed or Triple Glazed?

Most new windows in the UK are double-glazed. This is because, with modern windows, you can exceed the government guidelines for thermal efficiency and achieve a warm home without the additional expense of triple glazing. However, if you want the best possible energy efficiency, Aerogel technology combined with triple glazing will achieve U-Values of 0.9 W(2K), well below the 1.8 set by the government.

What is double glazing?

Double glazing is a type of window or door that is made up of two panes of glass separated by a layer of gas, such as argon. This design provides increased thermal insulation and soundproofing compared to single glazed windows.

What are the benefits of double glazing?

Double glazing offers a range of benefits, including increased energy efficiency, reduced noise pollution, improved security, and enhanced insulation. It can also increase the value of your property and improve its overall appearance.

If you want to reduce your heating bills, get a rough estimate of cost savings with our energy calculator.

How much does double glazing cost?

The cost of double glazing can vary depending on several factors, including the size and style of the window or door, the materials used, and the level of insulation and security features. At Styleglaze Installations in Daventry, we offer a range of double glazing options to suit a range of budgets, and we can provide a free, no-obligation quote to help you understand the cost of your project. The double glazing cost is partly offset by savings in fuel if used wisely.

How long does double glazing last?

Double glazing is designed to be durable and long-lasting, with an average lifespan of around 20 years. However, the lifespan can be influenced by factors such as the quality of the double glazing installation and the maintenance of the windows or doors.

Can double glazing be repaired?

In some cases, double glazing can be repaired rather than replaced. Common issues that can be repaired include misted or cloudy glass, broken locks, and damaged frames. At Styleglaze Installations in Daventry, we offer a repair service for double glazing, and we can provide advice on whether repair or replacement is the best option for your specific needs.

How can I maintain my double glazing?

Maintaining your double glazing can help to extend its lifespan and ensure that it continues to perform at its best. Regular cleaning, lubrication of moving parts, and inspection for signs of damage or wear and tear are all important aspects of double glazing maintenance. 

Why do double glazed windows get condensation?

Condensation on double glazing can occur when there is a difference in temperature between the inside and outside of the window or door. When warm, moist air inside the home comes into contact with the cooler surface of the glass, the moisture in the air can condense on the glass, resulting in water droplets or misting on the glass surface.

Double glazing is designed to be more energy-efficient than single glazing, and as a result, it can trap moisture inside the sealed unit. This trapped moisture can then condense on the glass surface in certain conditions, such as during cold weather when the internal temperature is warmer than the external temperature.

Another cause of condensation on double glazing can be a fault in the sealing of the unit. If there is a gap in the seal or a problem with the ventilation system, this can allow moisture to enter the sealed unit and cause condensation.

While some condensation on double glazing is normal and not a cause for concern, excessive condensation can indicate a problem with the installation or the unit itself. It's important to address any issues with condensation early on to prevent damage to the windows or doors and to maintain the energy efficiency of the unit.

At Styleglaze Installations in Daventry, we use high-quality materials and expert installation techniques to help prevent condensation from occurring on our double glazing products. We also offer repair and maintenance services to address any issues with condensation on your existing double glazing.

Is uPVC or aluminium better than timber windows?

Whether uPVC, aluminium or timber windows are better depends on a range of factors, including personal preference, budget, and the specific needs of your property. Each material has its own advantages and disadvantages, so it's important to weigh these up before making a decision.

uPVC windows are a popular choice due to their durability, low maintenance requirements, and energy efficiency. They are resistant to rot, rust and weathering, and can be easily cleaned with soap and water. uPVC is also a cost-effective option, making it a popular choice for homeowners on a budget.

Aluminium windows are another popular option due to their strength, durability and slimline design. They are resistant to rust and corrosion, and can be easily tailored to suit specific design requirements. Aluminium is also a good option for larger windows as it can support larger glass panes.

Timber windows have a more traditional and natural appearance, making them a popular choice for period properties and conservation areas. They offer good insulation and can be easily repaired if damaged. However, timber windows require regular maintenance, including painting and staining, to protect them from rot and insect damage.

Ultimately, the choice between uPVC, aluminium or timber windows will depend on your individual needs and preferences. At Styleglaze Installations in Daventry, we offer a range of window materials and designs to suit a range of budgets and design requirements. Our team of experts can provide advice and guidance on which material is best suited for your property and help you make an informed decision.
