KEEP WARMER IN WINTER WITH HIGH PERFORMANCE uPVC WINDOWS

Posted by Stuart Waring on 29 May 2015

Despite their huge popularity in Europe and North America, uPVC windows are only now being more widely taken up in Australia as home owners and builders try to achieve or exceed important 6-star energy efficiency building ratings.

Quality uPVC windows have long been recognised as a high performance window choice that offers thermal advantages over alternate materials such as timber or aluminium.

Thermal performance is one of the most important characteristics of a window. Double glazed uPVC windows can be as much as 4 ½ times more energy efficient than single glazed aluminium framed windows.

In winter, up to 70% of heat from inside your house is lost through standard 3mm window panes and even more is lost with heat transfer through metal frames.

By cutting the transfer of heat from the warm inside to the cold side of the window, uPVC windows with double glazing will significantly reduce the loss of heating warmth in cold weather, meaning less energy is required to maintain a comfortable indoor temperature.

In Australia, uPVC windows consistently rate among the highest performers under the WERS rating system and significantly outperform most aluminium windows.

They are proven performers in reducing energy consumption for heating and consequently can make a useful contribution to lowering your household energy and gas bills.

DOUBLE GLAZED WINDOWS IDEAL FOR AUSTRALIAN CLIMATES

Posted on 29 May 2015

There is a common misconception that double glazed windows are only useful in the cold climates of Europe and North America to keep out the cold. However double glazing can be just as effective at keeping the heat of an Australian summer out.

Windows can severely impact on the heating and cooling loads of a building. Standard glazed windows account for 40% of a home's heating energy loss and up to 87% of summer heat gain in a typical Australian insulated home.

uPVC frames and double glazed windows are relatively new in Australia but common in Europe and North America. In fact, they are the most popular choice for windows in these regions. Worldwide more than half of all new and replacement residential windows are uPVC, that's almost 290million window units each year chosen for their durability, energy efficiency, performance, low maintenance and style.

Choosing uPVC double glazed window units with a low solar heat gain and low U values reduces or eliminates the need for expensive artificial cooling.

Seacliff

Energy efficiency, noise insulation, plenty of ventilation and light was the brief for Denise and John's extension in Seacliff. VLam Hush Neutral, a special noise dampening glass with Low E coating and light blue tint was combined with 6.38 laminated to give the desired effect.

Having requested a door combination in a specific and unique design that other competitors had been unable to commit to making and on an extremely tight deadline, the Australian Window Solutions team swung into action and ensured everything was delivered and installed on time! The couple were delighted with their investment in uPVC double glazed windows and doors from Adelaide's leading double glazed window and door manufacturer.

Just completed - this traditional colonial style property in Lower Mitcham originally featured timber double hung windows. Using our primrose uPVC double glazed window with colonial bar was the solution to replicating the heritage appearance of the property.
