As winter approaches and the nights begin to draw in, it is always tempting to go straight to the heating in order to avoid discomfort. This is great for the short term and fighting back against the cold, but it will also hurt your pockets.
That is why it is important to look into your windows and what can be done to help to reduce those mounting bills. UPVC windows provide a number of fantastic features that can not only make your home more pleasant, but also save you money.
UPVC windows are fantastic in terms of thermal efficiency, with high insulation values preventing any considerable heat loss. This therefore ensures that the temperature indoors is regulated and optimal for the homeowner’s requirements.
It also means that they are effective for all types of weather. UPVC keeps the house cool during the summer and, due to its non-absorption of heat, keeps the house cool during the summer.
With double glazing, you are sure to feel the benefits when it comes to heat retention. The double glazing design sees two panes of glass fitted into a window which provides both solid protection and insulation. In between those two panes of glass, there is an argon gas filling which helps to provide a further reduction in heat transference. Double glazing can seriously help when it comes to making savings on your energy bills, most significantly in detached properties.
UPVC windows are designed with an internal multi-chambered profile which is both versatile and robust. They also use sealed units on both sides of each pane of glass. Those chambers can often range from four to eight, with the higher amount of chambers generally meaning better energy efficiency. Not to mention, uPVC is a great insulator in itself.
In order to make the most of the thermally efficient benefits offered by uPVC windows, you need to ensure that they are performing as optimally as possible. If not, it would be a good idea to look into replacing them. Some signs to look for to see if your uPVC windows need replacing include:
