Energy Efficiency

If the windows and glass doors in your home are inefficient you could be losing large amounts of heat and energy from your home through these openings.

The thermal efficiency of windows and doors is governed by many different aspects of a window construction including the thermal performance of the glass, the thermal efficiency of the frames and the quality of the installation.

The only way to improve the thermal performance through the glass and frame of your window is to replace these building elements with more efficient versions.

Thermal Breaking

Modern aluminium windows include an engineered thermal break within the framing construction to stop cold bridging from cold external temperature to inside, which you want to keep warm.

But if you look at any window or glazed door, the glass is the biggest surface area on show; therefore you will lose most heat through the glass.

Double glazing will generally generate the thermal performance required on most contemporary design projects. It does so by sandwiching an insulating layer of air within the aluminium window or door construction. Hedgehog Aluminium use an argon filled double glazed unit as standard which creates a greater thermal insulation factor than air alone.

Installations

The glass used should always contain a low e coating, this infra-red reflective coating reflects radiant heat from the inside of your home back inside, reducing heat loss to the outside of the glass.

Obviously a poor window installation that creates air gaps around a window or door will not insulate against the cold and drafts properly so ensure that all installations are undertaken by a competent installations team and that windows and doors fit well.

Contact Hedgehog Aluminium to find out which of our window or door products will generate the thermal performance you require for your replacement windows.
