The Answer To Defeating The Winter Chill… Triple Glazing

There are many ways that you can keep your house warm throughout the winter months, but not many with results as dramatic as updating your current glazing. It is estimated that 10 – 20% of your homes heat is lost through your windows alone, so it obviously makes sense to minimise this and updating to triple glazing can do that. Besides the obvious benefit of keeping yourself warm this winter, triple glazing could also dramatically reduce your bills over time as you won’t be rushing to the thermostat at the first sign of the cold.

Although triple glazing may look very similar to double glazing, it is partially the extra pane of glass that helps insulate your home. Other beneficial factors of triple glazing are that has a multi-chambered UPVC profile, warm-edge spacer bars, soft-coat glass and argon gas. This may make no sense to some of you, but it take it for us, it’s this modern glazing technology that really makes the difference for your homes heat and bills!

The more environmentally conscious amongst you may also be interested to know that triple glazing isn’t just beneficial to you and your family! Triple glazing can also reduce your homes carbon emissions. Another benefit that may interest you if you live in a noisy neighbourhood, triple glazing can help to keep that noise out so that you can get a good night’s sleep as the extra pane acts as a barrier, perfect for those who live near busy transport areas.

The benefits don’t stop there either! Something that bothers most people is how secure their home is, with the extra pane in your windows your homes will be safer than ever. Any potential home invaders would be hard pressed to get through your reinforced glass, although not impossible it would more than likely be a large deterrent and take some serious effort. Also, all windows from West Yorkshire Windows are fitted internally and make removing the glass from your home’s exterior an impossibility!

Double Glazing Replacement Windows – are they really worth it?

Nobody likes to spend money when they do not have to and more so now than ever in the current credit crunch we are all looking to save money. One such expense which many people debate is whether to install replacement windows and doors or not. There are several considerations which you need to think about to determine if you need replacement windows.

Often old wooden windows will have been painted so many times that they can no longer be opened and this is a serious safety risk.

Unfortunately it is a sign of the times that we live in that security needs to be a consideration. Locks on older windows and doors are often flimsy and can easily be broken. It is important not to only consider the main front and back door but consider all the external doors in your house such as French doors and patio doors.

It seems like every time we open a newspaper we read how gas and electricity prices are once again set to increase. Or how global warming is getting worse and it is all our responsibilities to do our bit to look after the planet. The windows and doors are one of the weakest spots in many homes in terms of energy efficiency it is predicted that between 25 and 40 percent if the heat in a home could be lost through inefficient windows and doors.

Many people do not realise that their windows and doors are actually inefficient but if any of the following factors sound familiar then the likelihood is that your windows could be improved. Is double glazing used in your windows? Are your windows more than 20years old? Do your windows suffer from condensation, and do you get little pools of water on your windowsills? Are the windows warped or rotting and can you feel drafts around your windows? Are your windows easy to open and can they be locked easily? These are just a few of the factors which indicate that your windows may need replacing.

uPVC Windows in Cream, Green, Black, Grey, Rustic Cherry and Whitegrain

After the successful debut of whitegrain uPVC windows in the summer of 2008, West Yorkshire Windows have now launched 5 new colours.

With the UK double glazing market reaching boiling point window companies are being forced to develop new product developments to bring in new custom.

Managing Director of the Conservatory Outlet group, Matthew Glover explains, “The challenge for uPVC window companies in a difficult market to encourage people to change their uPVC windows that they had fitted in the 1980s and 1990s. PVCu windows are a long lasting and maintenance free solution for replacement windows, but consumers are unlikely to be thinking about replacing new windows that are no more advanced than the windows they intially replaced 10 or 15 years ago. Therefore, West Yorkshire Windows have developed our A rated energy efficient windows which can help to provide large savings on heating bills (compared to standard double glazed windows). And we believe these new colour options will give people more individuality, and is a real alternative to timber windows”.

How modern uPVC Windows and uPVC Doors can improve home security

It would be an obvious point to make that having new uPVC doors and uPVC windows fitted would provide several benefits to your house as a whole. The addition of these new features would undoubtedly increase the value of your home and the good news is that they do not have to detract from the external styling of the property either. In fact, by adding something like a porch, conservatory or orangery you not only compliment the building but also add more room and in many cases a touch of elegance to your house.

Energy efficiency is also another good reason for having new uPVC windows or uPVC doors fitted.  This measure helps to save the environment by reducing your carbon footprint but it can also save money in your pocket by reducing energy bills.

The one overriding feature that I believe is the most significant point to take into consideration, though, is the added security features that modern uPVC doors or uPVC windows have to offer.  Not only do you benefit from the most modern and sturdy of materials but the equipment is likely to be fitted with good locks and bolts and even something as seemingly insignificant as internal beading can prove to be a useful addition to security.

Here we will look at some of the more significant features that modern uPVC doors and uPVC windows have to offer.

Internal Beading
At the end of the day a double glazed window is not designed to survive a sustained attack. After all, the emergency services need to gain quick access into your home if need be, but the idea of having modern windows fitted would be to deter the opportunist thief.  Older double glazed windows had the beading fitted on the outside of the glass, meaning that a potential burglar could pop out the plastic seal around the frame with a screwdriver and literally remove the entire unit.

Nowadays internal beading is fitted pretty much as standard which takes away this option.  If somebody wanted to break into your house with modern uPVC windows fitted they would literally have to smash the glass thus creating a lot of noise and bringing the attention of the neighbours to the fact that something was wrong.

Fire Safety
Having new uPVC windows fitted opens up the opportunity to make the house safer in the incidence of fire as well as improving the security of the property.  If you use a company that offers a bespoke design service you can make sure that they run through all the features and benefits of fitting windows within certain areas of the property that would allow for a quick escape during the rare instance of a fire in the home.  By having new windows fitted you are not only benefiting from all the points above, but it could also be the difference between life and death for you and your family.

Modern Locks and Bolts
Older doors in particular only have one lock that clicks into the frame at the middle of the door, making it easier for an intruder to force his way into the property.  The newest doors however have things such as multiple locking points, barrel locks with an anti drill design and anti-lift pins and hinge protectors, literally designed to prevent a would be burglar from lifting doors (especially in the case of an older conservatory or sliding patio door) right off their hinges.  These many added security features of modern uPVC windows and uPVC doors have evolved over the last 20-30 years of trial and error.

A process of developing technologies that would beat the ever increasing ingenuity of the burglar has led to the development of ever more secure locks and bolts to be added.  A burglar tends to be opportunistic and will deliberately seek out a soft target.  The best way to send out a message to them is to have new windows and doors fitted so they do not even give your property a second glance after noticing how the fittings look rock solid from the outside.

To explore your options the best step forward would be to book a session with a company that offers a bespoke design service.  There are a few good companies out there that offer this and not only will you be able be able to come up with a plan that suites the style of your building, takes into such external factors like a risk assessment of your property to determine the weak points but will also take into consideration your budget.

Save 20% on your fuel bills with the latest uPVC Double Glazing

The double glazing in our uPVC windows has one of the highest energy saving ratings in the industry.

To enable customers to make the best choice the British Fenestration Rating Council (BRFC) have introduced a rating scheme where A is the most energy efficient and G is the least, similar to the ratings seen on white goods like washing machines.

• A rating – The highest industry rating available from West Yorkshire Windows.
• B rating – Available from West Yorkshire Windows.
• C rating – The recommended threshold for energy saving windows.
• D rating – Building Regulations requirement for replacement windows in Scotland.
• E rating – Building regulations requirement for replacement windows in England and Wales.

Insulating your home is one of the best ways to make your home energy efficient – and one of the key ways to save energy is through double glazing. Double glazing acts as second layer of protection for your home from losing heat. And when around half of heat used to keep your home warm is lost through the walls, windows or loft, you could cut this significantly by installing double glazed windows.

Single glazed windows alone can lose around 20% of your home’s heat. Double glazing can make a wise long term investment for your home, and be good for the environment. Double glazed windows can save £80 to £100 and 680kg of CO2 every year – not to mention adding real value to your property if you later choose to sell.

How Double Glazing Works
Double glazing works by trapping air between two panes of glass. This creates an insulating barrier that will stop heat being lost, stop condensation appearing at your windows, and will also help stop noise from outside.

You should look for energy saving recommended double glazing, to ensure that you are installing the most energy efficient frames and glass. This will be particularly important when Energy Performance Certificates give an energy efficiency rating to homes in the new Home Information Packs that you’ll need, if you choose to sell your property after June 2007.

The Costs
The cost of installing double glazing greatly depends on the size of your house, and how many windows you wish to fit double glazed panes. If your budget is tight, you may choose simply to double glaze the windows in individual rooms rather than your entire property. Pick the rooms you use most often and tend to heat most.
