Double glazed uPVC windows are great for the home because they combine the benefits of double glazed with the benefits of uPVC as your window frames. Not only will you be saving money, you’ll also be choosing a low maintenance and environmentally friendly alternative.
Insulation – Perhaps the Biggest Benefit
When it comes to double glazing, you may be aware of its excellent insulation properties. This is because it is made up of two panes of glass that have a gap in between that is filled with air or another non toxic gas and then hermetically sealed (so air cannot get through at all). The gap between the panes can be anywhere from 6mm to 20mm and the higher, the gap, the more effective the double glazing is for insulation. Double glazing is important for windows because standard windows are the weak point in any home’s insulation, as single glazing really conducts the heat – letting it out in winter and letting it in in summer. Double glazing stops the window from conducting heat so heat loss and gain is drastically minimised, keeping the inside of your home much more comfortable and saving you a lot of money on your heating and cooling bills. uPVC windows themselves have multiple chambers within the frame, with each chamber being filled with air. This helps to stop the heat entering and leaving the home. They are also extremely well welded (fusion welded) in order to provide excellent resistance to leaks.

As well as a range of options in window styles, you can also choose from a range of colors. The standard colors are white, but you can also find grey, wood grain finishes and more. Generally, uPVC windows will look like painted or stained timber so they give an extremely attractive finish.
uPVC Windows are Long Lasting and Low Maintenance
Something else that you have to consider with uPVC windows is their incredible durability. These windows will not rust, rot, or warp; they have excellent fire resistance; they are termite proof; they can resist the damaging effects of the weather (sun, wind and rain); and they have high resistance to impacts. This means that you can use them just about anywhere, even areas with the harshest of conditions, without fear of the windows becoming damaged quickly. Best of all, the only maintenance that is required is the occasional cleaning – painting and the like is never necessary.
