How Can New Windows Improve Energy Efficiency?

The journey to an energy-efficient home involves strategic choices, and UPVC window installation stands out as a brilliant place to start. In no time, you’ll be the envy of your friends and colleagues, with lower bills, and a noticeably warmer interior. From containing heat to eliminating draughts and leveraging the benefits of double glazing, these windows offer a comprehensive solution. At True Window & Glass Centre, we believe that for the very best results, you should always entrust the job to skilled professionals who understand the nuances - many of which are explained within this informative blog post.

Containing Heat

In the quest for a more energy-efficient home, the everyday homeowner may look towards the insulation of walls and roofs, yet the significance of windows in this equation should not be underestimated. The right windows can play a crucial role in containing heat within your living spaces, reducing the need for excessive heating during the colder months, when bills notoriously skyrocket. New UPVC window installations are a game-changer with unplasticised polyvinyl chloride, a material known for its excellent insulation properties. Unlike traditional materials, UPVC does not conduct heat as readily, helping to create a thermal barrier between the interior and exterior of your home. This translates to reduced heat loss and lower energy bills!

Fewer Draughts And Cold Spots

Older windows, especially those with single glazing, are often to blame when it comes to draughts and cold spots in a property. These unwelcome intrusions not only compromise comfort but also contribute to higher energy consumption as residents compensate by turning up the heating. UPVC window installations, with their tight seals and modern design, significantly reduce the occurrence of draughts. The advanced construction of these windows ensures a snug fit, preventing cold air from seeping into your home. The result? A more comfortable living environment and, importantly, lower heating costs which are immediately noticeable.

UPVC And Glazing

When contemplating window upgrades for energy efficiency, the choice of glazing is just as crucial as the frame material. Double glazing, with its two layers of glass separated by a gas-filled cavity, is a standard choice for those seeking enhanced insulation. This True Window & Glass Centre pairing creates a formidable barrier against heat loss and external elements, incorporating insulation properties and the thermal benefits of double or triple glazing, to ensure that your home remains energy-efficient throughout the year.
