For Bathurst’s cool climate your choice of window is as important as the insulation in the walls and roof.
Up to 60% of a home’s heating energy can be lost and up to 86% of the heat gained through your windows.
Improving their thermal performance increases comfort and reduces energy costs.
Whether you are planning your dream home or renovating, uPVC double glazed windows are perfect for homes in the Central West.
A significant part of the thermal energy loss is through the frames, depending on how well the material conducts heat. Metals are good conductors, which is why they feel hot to the touch when exposed to the sun. This makes them poor thermal insulators.
UPVC is a low conductor of heat which therefore stops the heat transfer from the heat-exposed side to the non-exposed side. UPVC window frames provides a high level of energy efficiency compared to a standard aluminium frame. Standard aluminium window frames readily conduct heat and cold, eliminating benefits from installing double glazing.
The lower the U-value the better. The more insulated the window unit is the better the window will be in retaining the interior’s heat in the winter and keeping heat out during the summer:
Single Glazed Aluminium Windows
Aluminium Double Glazed Windows
uPVC Double Glazed Windows
Insulate Double Glazing’s stylish and modern uPVC double glazed windows and doors are the ideal energy efficient choice with added benefits of minimising noise and increasing security. The added thermal resistance reduces the amount of heat escaping in winter and prevents unwanted heat from coming into your home in summer, and keeping your home at a more comfortable temperature reducing your energy costs.
