Energy efficiency has become an important factor when choosing windows and doors. However, the terminology can be confusing. From U Values to Windows Energy Ratings, here is our quick and easy guide to energy efficiency for windows and doors.

 

U Values

U Values are not as prevelent in England as in other countries across Europe, however you will still find them mentioned in literature and your sales person may talk to you about them. Quite simply, a U Value measures how quickly heat will be lost through a surface. The lower the U Value, the better insulator a material is and the less heat that will escape through it. By stoppng heat escaping, energy efficiency will increase and money can be saved on heating bills.

 

Windows Energy Ratings

Every window sold in England should have an Energy Rating Certificate. This is a rainbow label, similar to the one you would see when you buy a household appliance. The label will tell you how energy efficient your window is, detailed on a scale from A+ to G. A+ is the most energy efficient, G the least efficient. Depending on who you buy the windows from, the Energy Rating Certificate should display the BFRC, BSI, FENSA or CERTASS logo.

 

We are proud that all of the windows that we sell achieve an Energy Rating of A and a U Value rating as low as 0.7. For more information, call us on 01943 465947

Windows are part of the essential framework of any property. However worn-out windows will not only look bad, but could mean that you are using more energy than necessary and that the value of your home is negatively affected.

Repairing old windows can be costly but replacing windows with new energy efficient ones can be an investment worth taking. Here are our top three reasons why: 

  1. The profile (the plastic that a window is made out of) has seen major improvements in recent years, and is now more thermally efficient, and energy efficient, than before. Couple that with the advancements in glass design, and you are guaranteed to reduce energy usage and the associated costs.
  2. Maintaining worn windows can be time-consuming and difficult. Updated PVC windows are virtually maintenance free, meaning that you can spend more time enjoying your home, and your new windows.
  3. Over the years windows can become dirty and off-colour, meaning they end up more yellow than white. Replacing your windows will mean they will be the correct colour once more, adding more ‘curb appeal’ to your property, which could lead to an increase in value.

The high end look and feel of an aluminium window will add a touch of sophistication to any property and finish off your home beautifully due to its sleek looking design. 

As well as being popular with new and self builds, aluminium windows are perfectly designed to maintain the traditional features of art deco, traditional or character properties. The strength and durability of the 100% recyclable aluminium, and the distinctly thinner sight lines, make these windows desirable for any home.

With their innovative thermal break technology, reducing thermal transmittance and your heating bills, the premium aluminium framework has added security through a shootbolt locking system. The practically maintenance free system is available in a wide range of styles and colours with added glazing options. Our aluminium windows are also available in a dual colour option, giving you the ability to have one colour externally and another internally. 

At Wharfedale Glass, we strive to make decision making as easy for you as possible, with a design consultation service available to ensure the aluminium windows are tailored to your exact requirements.

At Wharfedale Glass, we are proud to sell and install R9 from the Residence Collection of timber alternative windows and have done successfully for the past four years. The collection has now expanded and we now also offer R7 and R2. Here are the features and benefits of three of the most energy efficient windows on the market:

Residence 9

Suitable for use in conservation areas, R9 is the perfect timber alternative window with its 100mm frame depth and 9 inner chambers and virtually maintenance free. Available in approaching 40 foiled through colour options, the R9 is stylish, long lasting and authentic. 

Residence 7

Different to the R9, the R7 has a 75mm frame depth with 7 chambers. The R7 boasts a flush internal and external design, giving it a stylish classic look. It is available in a wide range of foiled colour options and again, is practically maintenance free.

Residence2

R2 shares the same frame makeup of R9, 9 chambers and 100mm frame depth. The internal design of R2 is always square, giving it a sleek look, whilst having a flush internal design to allow for a more decorative interior. Again, it is virtually maintenance free and is available in the same range of foiled through colour options as the R9.
