Double Glazing In Chesterfield – Saving Money
If you are sat within your property in Chesterfield with old style Double Glazing and you know that they are in need of an upgrade, did you know that you could be throwing away anywhere between between £150 to £250 a year on unnecessary heating. For those of you who are more environmentally conscious, you are also throwing out approx 720kg of unnecessary CO2 (carbon dioxide).
An amazing 18% of the heat your home loses is lost through the windows. Heat that is lost through this ways means that energy is wasted, and money is wasted.
Double glazed windows use two panes of glass with a gap between them and what we call a spacer bar. This is approximately 16mm in width. This can be either a silver spacer bar or a black warm spacer bar, keeping the 2 units apart. This is essentially a vacuum across which eat will find it hard to travel, hence keeping the heat in. Your units can also be argon filled, which means that if you pay a little extra for these units, you are opting for the top end in terms of thermally efficiency. This, therefore, saves you more money in the long run.
Spacer Bars - I mentioned that Double Glazing comes with various types of colours of spacer bars – the two most common that we now supply in Chesterfield, Derbyshire and the surrounding areas, are silver and warm black. Many installers are now switching from silver to warm black as the latter does not reflect the heat outwards away from the house, like the former (however minimal it is) does.
Glass - The most energy efficient glass in double glazing is the low emissivity (Low-E) glass. This tends to have an invisible coating of metal oxide, on just one of the internal panes – this has the effect of allowing the sunlight in and then trapping this heat in and not letting it escape.
Frames - They are also available in a variety of frames and styles and there are so many different types an they all vary so much in price and quality. You will find numerous suppliers of double glazing around Chesterfield and on further questioning, you will find that they all vary so much in quality.
A Rated or C Rated - One of the important things to look our for is if they come with ‘A’rated or ‘C’ rated windows. A-rated windows are the most efficient out of the two systems but you generally pay more. Having said that, ‘C’ rated windows are the industry standard and are a perfectly acceptable solution.
