The customer had old single glazed windows that really let them down on days that they either needed to warm up the house or cool down the house. The main issue was thermal. They were also an eye sore and didn’t “look the part” with the house.
We recommend Golden Oak uPVC double glazed windows. The double glazed unit specified with Low E will make a terrific thermal difference. The uPVC frames have many great benefits, they provide high efficient thermal insulation, effective sound insulation, high in security & vertically maintenance free, just to name a few.
We recommend Golden Oak uPVC double glazed windows, The double glazed unit will make a terrific thermal difference, the argon gap between the panes dramatically reduces transmission of both heat and sound. The uPVC frames have many great benefits, they provide high efficient thermal insulation, effective sound insulation, and high in security. Timber look & vertically maintenance free.
SPECS OF THE PRODUCT
The IGU (insulated glass unit) used, is made up of an internal 4mm pane with Low E, a 16mm argon gas filled gap and 4mm pane on the outside. Using a uPVC double glazed window we can achieve a great u-value of 1.7. The u-value is the amount of heat transferred through a material. The lower the u-value, the slower the rate of heat flow and the better the insulating quality (therefore the lower the u-value the better!). The solar heat gain coefficient or SHGC is also nice and low at 0.32. This is the percentage of heat gained from both direct sunlight and absorbed heat. Again smaller the number, the greater the ability to reduce solar heat gain.
