Why retrofitting double glazed uPVC windows will save you!

Posted by on in uPVC Windows

While many new home builders are benefiting from fitting double glazed uPVC windows, there is no reason why existing home owners cannot enjoy the same thermal, noise and overall energy efficiency from high performance uPVC windows.

uPVC window frames are superior insulators, specifically designed for double glazing. Over their lifetime, uPVC windows will increase the energy efficiency of your home while reducing your household greenhouse gas emissions, saving you heating and cooling costs.

According to the Efficient Glazing tool, if you replace typical aluminium-framed single-glazed windows in a medium sized house in efficient glazingMelbourne with typical uPVC double glazed windows, over one tonne of greenhouse gas emissions will be saved every year! Use the Efficient Glazing tool to see how you can save by switching to double glazed uPVC windows. 

uPVC windows are a great choice for replacement windows in older homes. They can be designed to suit the s
tyle and age of your home, whether a heritage era house or more modern. With less noise, better thermal comfort and little maintenance, your home will become a haven.
