It is well known that uPVC is a low conductor of heat, helping to retain warmth within a building and keep the cold out. This is further enhanced by designing multiple chambers inside the window profiles, allowing them to trap air and create a thermal barrier. Add double or triple glazing to a uPVC frame, and U-values as low as 0.8 W/m²K can be achieved.
Cost Effective Benefits
There are three distinct areas where installing uPVC windows saves on cost and adds huge benefit to your home: A Lower purchase price and installation costs Higher energy savings over the life of the windows, and Lower maintenance costs. According to the Glass & Glazing Federation’s Energy Saving Calculator, if single glazed windows of an alternative material are replaced by ‘A’ rated uPVC double-glazed windows, annual savings would be achieved.
uPVC requires very little maintenance, a wipe down with warm soapy water is all that is required, making uPVC windows simpler and more cost effective to look after. Compare uPVC with timber windows which require treating or painting on a regular basis, this is time consuming and can be costly.
uPVC windows have a very long expected life span of up to 35 years. Frames will not rot, corrode, warp or split, and special additives make them tough enough to meet European requirements.
An attractive improvement to any home
The chunky white uPVC frames as seen in the 1980s are well and truly in the past. With an extensive choice of wood grain effects and colours, as well as slim sightlines, uPVC windows can be as aesthetically pleasing as their timber or aluminium counterparts.
