Double glazing using uPVC isn’t just about keeping the outside out and the inside in, ensuring that your house is disturbed as little as possible by the noise going on in the world around you, and keeping you safe and secure (although uPVC double glazing does those jobs very well indeed).
uPVC stands for unplasticised polyvinyl chloride. It is easy to clean, easy to install, and it looks great! As a bonus, it happens to be the cheapest form of double glazing frames but also the material that saves the most energy overall.
When it comes to installing uPVC double glazing, the real benefits come from the savings you can make on your energy bills which, in the current economic climate, is always a good thing. In fact, compared to single glazed windows, you could save around £165 a year on a three bedroom house. That’s over £4,000 on an average mortgage. These savings easily offset the cost of installation, and give you a warm, cosy, homely house that you’ll be proud to come home to.

To save even more money, K Glass is a fantastic option. K Glass is a low-emissivity glass that makes up the inner pane of the window, making double glazing almost as effective as triple glazing, without the cost. This stops heat from escaping (up to 25% of a home’s heat is lost through closed windows!), thereby saving you money on your heating bills. In an average three bedroom house, that’s about £200 a year.
For the ultimate in money and energy saving windows, it might be worth considering having triple glazing installed. These windows are still made with durable, attractive uPVC, but with an additional layer of glass you can save even more energy (and money) over the life of your windows. Triple glazed windows are 60% more efficient than standard double glazed panes (C rating), and 40% more efficient than superior double glazed panes (A rated). In that three bedroom house we mentioned before, switching to triple glazed windows could save you a massive £766 a year!
uPVC windows and doors don’t just look good; they save you money and keep you safe. What’s not to love about that?
