Useful tips when buying new windows
- Think about your needs
- Consider your energy savings
- Take the style of your home into consideration
- Compare service providers
Different windows, different needs
To find out what you need in a new window, you should consider what climate you live in. If it tends to get quite chilly, you may consider extra insulation or even triple glazed windows. In hotter environments, uPVC windows can degrade more quickly. Will the window get more or less sun, or be more or less susceptible to break-ins? Windows onto the street could need extra security protection than, say, a second-floor window.
The energy efficiency of your windows is also very important since you could save up to 50% on your energy bill if they are well-installed and well-suited to your home. Ask your window provider about the solar heat gain coefficient, air leakage, visible transmittance and condensation resistance of their windows. Lower coefficients and leakage are better, and for the last two, the higher the number the better. These vary considerably depending on the configuration of window frame and glazing type, so make sure you talk to someone in the know before making a decision.
Be your own style guru
Consider the architectural style of your home. For more traditional homes, wooden or uPVC frames fit best with their overall appearance. Aluminum windows look amazing when paired with modern architectural designs. Windows set the mood inside your home, and aluclad windows are a nice alternative, combining a low-maintenance (metal) exterior with a cozy (wooden) interior. Ultimately, the choice is up to you. But research is vital, and to make an informed decision, you need to have the best information at your fingertips. This can be easily found by comparing prices from different companies.
