What are the Benefits of Installing New Windows?

man installing new windows
Windows primarily have two main uses – they provide ventilation and daylighting. By harnessing natural daylight, it will help to lower a building’s energy costs because it reduces the need to rely on electric lighting during daylight hours. 

Unfortunately, windows are a notorious source of unwanted heat loss. All windows lose a certain amount of heat and the older your windows the more energy inefficient they will be. To make your property better insulated and help cut your energy costs, you should really consider installing energy efficient uPVC double glazing, triple glazing or secondary glazing.

Glazing today is vastly superior compared to the windows that were installed 20 or 30 years ago. Thanks to new technologies, energy efficient window and glazing systems have been developed which act to help cut energy consumption, in addition to minimising condensation and improving comfort levels. High performing double glazing and triple glazing windows feature two or three sheets of glass with a gap – usually around 16mm – between the panes which is often filled with insulating gas such as xenon or argon to reduce heat transfer and keep heat in.

Much like electrical appliances, uPVC windows have energy ratings and more and more companies are choosing to provide this information with their products. In terms of the most energy efficient glass for double glazing on the market, look out for low emissivity (Low-E) glass.
