In this blog we’ll be delving into uPVC casement windows, and why this choice is so preferable in Coventry and across the UK.
uPVC stands for unplasticized polyvinyl chloride, it’s a type of engineered plastic which allows it to be extremely durable and resilient. It’s a great material to use for windows because of it’s flexibility and strength, it’s also lightweight and UV resistant which is why we see a growing amount of people opt for this choice. Not only that, it’s also considerably more affordable than it’s counter parts aluminium and timber, in fact uPVC usually costs 50% less!
To keep your heating bill as low as possible and save you much needed money, opt for double or triple glazed windows. They’re able to keep the heat in, while resisting the cold air outside from entering. Double glazing utilises two panes of glass, which are placed apart from one and another, argon gas is then let in and trapped inside. This type of gas is a great insulator and therefore retains warm air from escaping your home. Double glazing is highly effective, decreasing heat loss by up to 30% in comparison to single glazed windows. Ensuring your home stays warm throughout the winter!
If you’ve worried about noisy neighbours or loud traffic, double glazed windows will certainly eliminate any disturbance. The extra pane of glass helps absorb the sound waves and the gas between the windowpanes assists in lessening the transference of sound. This’ll mean you’ll have all the sleep you’ll need.
Triple glazing is simply three panes of glass rather than one or two, by having an additional layer of glass you’ll be able to maximise the effects of double glazing! This means more insulation, which will stop you spending so much money on heating. Now you’re probably wondering what impact triple glazing has on sound. With all the extra layers of glass the sound waves will have to travel through, it will dampen noise outside considerably, this means any sound that does come through will be very quiet and unlikely to disturb your peaceful day.
uPVC double glazed casement windows are notorious for it’s manageable and easy maintenance, with just a wet cloth and some dish soap your windows will look brand new. This type of material is great all year round, with it’s weatherproof abilities you won’t have to be concerned about your frame rotting away like wooden timbers would. uPVC also provides brilliant thermal performance; they have very low thermal conductivity which makes it a great option for reducing heat loss and energy costs in the home.
