Do you feel like your energy bill is too high? If your home has single glazed windows, then you are probably right. Thin windows allow for high levels of heat transfer, which forces your home’s heating or cooling system to work twice as hard to retain a consistent interior temperature. At Climateframe, we offer our customers energy saving windows to avoid HVAC overwork and minimise energy costs.
What You Need to Know about Double Glazed Windows and uPVC Framing
There are two factors that make Climateframe double glazed windows among the most energy efficient windows available in Perth. The first is two panes of glass. Double glazed windows are often referred to as double pane windows because they consist of two glass window panes instead of just one. These panes are separated by a small argon gas filled gap. These two panes of glass and the argon gas gap between them stop heat transfer in its tracks in a way a single pane window could never do.
The second factor that sets our windows apart is our uPVC framing. PVC stands for polyvinyl chloride; uPVC means ‘unplasticised polyvinyl chloride.’ In standard PVC, added plasticisers make the material softer and more flexible. Without these plasticisers, uPVC is more rigid than regular PVC.
At Climateframe, we offer heat proof windows because our window profiles provide unbeatable insulating properties. The combination of double glazed glass unit and rigid uPVC eliminates any opportunity for heat transfer. These windows will help your HVAC system work more efficiently, keeping unwanted hot (or cold) air out of your house.
Embrace Energy Saving Windows Today
Energy efficient windows are the future. They improve comfort, ensure stable interior temperature, and offer monetary savings through lowered energy bills. At Climateframe, our windows also have a noticeable sleek and modern appearance—a bonus that our customers love.
Double glazing is gaining popularity in Australia as a means of fighting scorching hot summers. Despite the success of this technique, the uPVC industry still hasn’t made much of a dent in the market. For functions such as window and door framing, uPVC is already the standard across Europe and the United Kingdom. In the United States, it enjoys a roughly 60 percent market share. In Australia, uPVC is just beginning to become a sought-after material for progressive applications, covering only about 3 percent of the Australian market.
Our customers are seeking out not a short-term fix but a long-term solution for high heating costs and inefficient HVAC systems. Once they’ve experienced the difference uPVC makes, and this material’s ability to promote year-long home heating and cooling benefits, the choice is clear.
At Climateframe, we want to do our part to make uPVC the Australian standard. We have seen firsthand how much better uPVC is than PVC for eliminating heat transfer and delivering lower and more sustainable energy use levels.
