Energy efficiency – With the rising cost of fuel, not to mention reducing your carbon footprint, the issue of energy efficiency is an important factor to consider when improving your property. According to the Energy Saving Trust, a staggering 26% of all domestic heat loss escapes through the windows.
The Thermal Rating Register provides a simple system to demonstrate the windows thermal performance by using a colour coded A-G rating, the higher the rating, the better the overall thermal efficiency of your windows, and the greater the savings on your fuel bills for consumers.
The Building regulations require replacement windows to be a minimum of a ‘C’ rating. This is a useful benchmark to consider when choosing replacement windows. The rating of windows not only takes into account the amount of heat the window loses directly, but also the amount of air that can escape through the frame, and the positive benefit of heat energy gained from solar energy.
You may have heard the term ‘U-value’ when researching thermal efficiency of your windows. The ‘U-value’ reflects the thermal insulating performance of your building. The lower the U-value is, the better the insulating performance. Single glazed windows have a typical U-value rating of 5.1 whereas the A-rated windows we provide have a typical U-value of 1.4. If you want to make your home as thermally efficient as possible, have a look at our triple glazing! With a 44mm unit we can get a U-value of 0.8!
In summary, energy efficient windows, when installed properly, can pay for themselves in lower heating and cooling costs over a period of years. Together with improved comfort, appearance and excellent customer care, energy efficient windows from COVE Windows are one investment every home can benefit from.
We at COVE Windows will install ‘A’ rated windows as standard.
Triple glazing is well established in many parts of Europe and is becoming increasingly popular in the UK. Windows are one of the most exposed parts of a house; if you are looking for the most energy efficient windows on the market, then triple glazing is for you. The thermal insulation benefit is clearly visible through the additional pane of glass and gas filled cavity.
By fitting A-rated windows, an average detached home would save 23 tonnes of carbon over 20 years. Our triple glazed windows are 40% more thermally efficient than typical A-rated windows so your energy saving will increase exponentially!
The main 3 benefits of triple glazing are:
1. Use less energy and save even more money on heating bills
Triple glazed windows have an optimised energy balance to maximise cost savings. Triple glazing allows a high level of solar heat gain, capturing warmth from natural daylight and drawing it into your home. This is combined with exceptional thermal insulation properties with triple glazed windows having a very low U-value* to keep the heat in during night and day. This means that you’ll need your heating on less often and for shorter periods of time.
2. Maximum comfort
The thermal efficiency of triple glazed windows ensures that cold spots are eliminated. With the correct specification, triple glazed windows from COVE Windows can increase the acoustic installation of your home and reduce the effect of external noise.
3. Enhanced security
The extra pane of glass in triple glazing provides greater security for your home. This is due to the middle pane being made out of toughened glass, which will make it much harder to break compared to the double glazed sealed unit.
* U-value reflects the thermal insulating performance of a building. The lower the U-value is, the better the insulating performance.
