How Upgrading Your Windows Can Help You With The Increased Cost Of Living
Inflation in the UK recently hit a 40-year high, largely due to the rising cost of energy. Naturally, British consumers are looking for ways to reduce their energy consumption. One way to do that is by making our homes more energy efficient. One of the best ways to reduce home energy consumption is by upgrading your windows.
How Double Glazing Saves Energy and Money
Double-glazed windows are also called insulating glass units or IGU for short. Installing two panes creates a sealed pocket filled with argon gas that prevents the transfer of heat and moisture. According to the Department of Energy and Climate Change, “heat is lost through single glazing about twice as fast through standard double glazing.” Twice as fast! That is a huge difference in energy efficiency. That is why the UK government has been upgrading the windows of government buildings and recommending that consumers upgrade theirs.
Other Benefits of Upgraded Windows
- Carbon Emissions – When you lose less energy, you use less energy. This means you’re generating fewer carbon emissions when you maintain the temperature of your home.
- Security – Double and triple-glazed windows are harder to infiltrate than single-glazed windows, so you’re safer from intruders and storm debris.
- Noise Reduction – The extra pane of glass with the super spacer bar around the edge insulate your home from outdoor noise. This is especially helpful in urban neighbourhoods or for homes near major roadways we can also offer further acoustic solution by using noise reducting glass.
- Ultraviolet Protection – Many windows available today reduce the amount of harmful UV rays that will enter your home. Prolonged exposure to UV radiation causes ailments such as skin cancer.
Triple Glazed Windows
As you would guess, triple glazing involves three panes instead of two, creating two insulating pockets of argon gas instead of one. Since it involves more material and labour, they are more expensive to buy and install, but savings are significant. The energy efficiency of our window is measured by the U-Value. With Triple glazing the whole windows has a U-Value of 1.1, which is the best you can get for keeping the heat in and the cold out. The extra insulation also blocks significantly more noise and UV rays and makes your home more secure.
What Is uPVC?
Everyone’s familiar with PVC plastic, commonly used for plumbing. PVC stands for polyvinyl chloride. uPVC is unplasticised PVC. It’s more rigid than PVC because it lacks the plasticisers that make regular PVC flexible. This makes it an appropriate material to replace painted wood in home construction. uPVC window frames are more durable than wood window frames because they won’t rot. It’s also low maintenance and inexpensive compared to hardwood timber or aluminium, yet it still works very well with steel.
The DECC recommends homeowners look carefully at the energy ratings for any windows they might purchase. C-rated materials are cheaper, but A-rated windows or above will insulate better and probably save you money in the long run by reducing your monthly bills for heat and air conditioning. The highest energy rating is A+.
Other Ways to Make Your Home More Energy Efficient
- Curtains – Thick curtains hung close to your windows help to keep heat from escaping. Close them at night but keep them open during the day to allow sunlight to warm your home.
- Weather Stripping – Make sure the weather stripping around your doors and windows is in good shape to avoid heat transfer.
- Smart Thermostat – Newer thermostats can be set to maintain different temperature limits for times when your home is unoccupied. Using an app, you can also change the temperature setting when you’re not home.

Why Invest in Window Upgrades?
While double and triple-paned windows offer a wide array of benefits to homeowners, their energy savings stand out as an ongoing perk. Upgrading your windows can add value to your home and enhance your windows’ ability to ward off intruders, so your family is safer. However, the continuous benefit and most appealing effect of window upgrades is their energy efficiency. Your interior spaces stay more comfortable as the double-glazed or triple-glazed windows keep cold air out of them. The result is lower energy bills since your home’s furnace or central heating unit doesn’t need to work as hard to maintain a comfortable temperature.
