uPVC double glazed windows supply & fit

If you want to see a huge reduction in your annual energy bills, whilst being environmentally friendly, replacement double glazing is often the way to go. And with uPVC windows you have a material that surpasses aluminium and hardwood, with a number of quality benefits.

uPVC double glazing is the most popular window replacement in the UK and is even recommended by most window installers because of its advantages.

But what is double glazing?

Double glazing is an efficient window unit that will replace your old, inefficient single paned windows. It’ll last for more than 15 years, cutting your energy bills year-in year-out by retaining heat in your home.

It works by having two panes of glass separated by an energy efficient spacer, which doesn’t allow heat to pass through. This spacer is normally Argon and fills a gap between 20mm and 28mm.

Benefits of uPVC double glazing

uPVC windows are the most popular replacement units in the UK and thousands of installations are completed every year. With double glazed windows:

  • Reduce your heating bills by as much as £300 a year, with superb energy efficiency locking heat in your home. This means you don’t need to turn up the temperature on your boiler to keep warm.

  • Your property instantly becomes more secure and research actually suggests break-ins are prevented as burglars avoid double glazed properties. Double glazing helps put your mind at rest and ensures greater safety.

  • Cut your home’s carbon dioxide emissions, lowering your footprint on the planet. Carbon is one of the key gases responsible for environmental problems such as global warming.

  • And an added benefit with double glazing is that noise pollution is limited, with sound waves unable to pass through that efficient Argon spacer.

Why choose uPVC windows?

There are a number of reasons uPVC is the most popular frame material in the double glazing industry for both homeowners and companies. Firstly, it’s far cheaper than hardwood or aluminium. So for those on a budget it’s a life saver.

And even with the cheap price, uPVC doesn’t skimp on its quality. It’s an extremely efficient material, reducing your energy bills and is also extremely durable and resistant to weather conditions.

It won’t rot or bow like wooden frames and it also can be coloured to match traditional homes. During production it’s created with stabilisers and additives to protect it from the sun’s natural UV rays too.

Double glazing FAQs

Will double glazing increase my property’s value?

These days, buyers expect homes to have double glazing. People recognise the benefits of installing double glazing, so if you don’t have it installed you should consider it. You’ll increase your property’s value and give it a better chance of selling faster, since single glazed properties are also more likely to have problems with damp and mould which could put buyers off.

What is the Window Energy Rating (WER)?

The energy efficiency of windows is measured using ratings, varying from A, the most efficient, to G, the least efficient. This scheme is run by the British Fenestration Council (BFRC). To comply with Building Regulations you’ll need windows of energy efficiency at least level C.

How much does double glazed windows cost

Are you looking to replace your old window for a new double glazed window and wondering what it’s going to be the cost? Well, the double glazed windows market is a very competitive one in the UK with varying prices across the country. Therefore, if you shop around you’re most likely to find something that’ll fit your budget both products and quality wise.

As you would have expected, the more windows you required the more money you are going to spend. However, the cost per window is likely going to be lower depending on the number of windows you purchase. Several double glazed windows come with a 10 year warranty but it’s advisable to also obtain a solid workmanship warranty which provides coverage for any potential problems for a good period of time upon installation.

To determine the cost of double glazed windows, there are so many things to put into consideration that just the primary dimensions of the window itself. Other factors that works to decrease or increase the cost of the project includes the frames’ quality as well as the material used. For example hardwood can be quite high priced when compared to uPVC.

The number of opening windows within the frame can also play a huge role in the cost of the windows as well as the type of the glass. The cost of a double glazing window usually ranges between £100 to £3,200 per window, depending on the available options.

To have a more accurate estimate of the cost of a double glazing window, you’ll need a obtain a survey from a double glazing installer who can take into account any possible complications that may arise when installing your windows while also giving an advise on the most suitable window style for your property.

Will double glazing stop condensation?

If you’ve got a problem with condensation and don’t have double glazing, you should find that getting new windows will help. Condensation is caused by warm air meeting a cold surface which then turns into water droplets. With two panes of glass, less heat will escape from your home and keep the window warmer, meaning when steam from the bathroom or kitchen touches your windows there should be less condensation.

How can I find out how energy efficient my new windows will be?

All new windows come with an energy efficiency rating from A to G. A is best, while G is the lowest rating. Anything above C is considered good, but these days most companies will be able to supply you with A-rated windows to maximise your energy efficiency.

Do I need to stay at home while my windows are being replaced?

Most installers will not need you to be at home while they are fitting your windows. It is a good idea to be present though, just in case they have any questions for you and perhaps for your own peace of mind. If you cannot be there, you will need to arrange access to the property and/or agree securing the property at the end of the day.

How much money will I save with double glazing?

By replacing the single glazed windows in your home you stand to make savings of around £170 each year. It’s not just the financial gain that makes double glazing attractive though and you can also save up to 680kg of carbon emissions annually. Over 20 years this is a saving of around £3,400 and 13,600kg of CO2.

How much are new windows

Are you about to replace your old windows and wondering just how much it’ll cost to have a new one fitted? If yes, then you’ve come to the right place! The question is a very straight forward one, however a direct answer can not be provided as determining window prices for a replacement project can be a very tricky challenge. With a plethora of influencing factors that can play a key role in the price of both materials and labour to be used, it could be extremely hard for a window installer to provide a cost estimate without paying you a visit beforehand.

The factors that can go a long way in determining the price of your new window includes the size of the window, frame material, style chosen, your location, rates charged by the window installer (these rates can be different from an installer to an installer, so it’ll probably be in your best interest to compare quotes to identify the most competitive price) as well as the type of glass required.

Generally, for a small flat featuring four windows, the average cost for new windows would be between the range of £2,100 to £2,300. This range provided covers the cost of double glazed uPVC casement windows as well as the installation price. In the same tone, a home with up to 8 windows will have an average cost for window replacement between the range of £4,400 to £4,600, wile also taking into account the installation price. Whereas a house comprising 10 windows could begin at an average cost of window replacement between the the range of £5,200 to £5,500, and a 15 window home will be between the range of £8,400 to £8,600. it should be noted that the aforementioned figures only include the standard number of windows with a uPVC frame and the installation cost.
