Energy Saving Tips for your Home
Unplasticized Polyvinyl Chloride (uPVC) is a strong plastic. The windows normally have double glazing and are the industry standard in many countries. uPVC windows and doors greatly improve the insulation in a room. In the summer they prevent a room heating up and in the winter they trap heat in a room. This is due mostly to the layer of air between the two panes of glass in double glazing. A small insulation benefit is also found in the plastic which is a poor conductor and tends not to transfer much heat or cold between inside and out. This saves a lot on energy bills and can reduce the carbon emissions.
When temperatures spike, drafty windows and doors can quickly turn into rising utility bills. New energy efficient windows and doors are crucial to maintaining your home's comfort all year long, especially during the coldest and hottest months. Maximize your home’s energy efficiency with the following tips and advice:-
Give Your Home an Energy Makeover
A survey or audit of a windows and doors can identify specific ways to reduce your home energy bills. Roughly 23% energy gets wasted through windows. Bajaj Windows’s experts analyze your home and compare your household's windows & doors need for energy saving and give recommendations for improvement.
Start at the Front
A home's front door can play a vital role as one of the first lines of defense against the elements. If a door doesn't close properly or lets in a draft, you'll pay the price in your utility bills. Check for cracks and any gaps around the door. If issues can't be easily fixed, it may be time to replace the door.
At Bajaj Windows, we make the right, energy efficient windows for your home. A window is more than just a pane of glass. It's a complex unit that can be built in a number of combinations. Energy efficient windows feature an insulating glass unit of two or three panes, gas fill and a variety of engineering advancements that stop the transfer of heat and cold. Together these high tech options make a glazing package.
Direction of Windows
The direction of windows and doors installation can make a big difference in the sun's intensity level within the home. South and west facing windows and doors require the highest level of UV protection.
Calculate the Saving
Beyond the initial purchase price of a product, consider the long-term value that energy efficient windows and doors offer in terms of annual measurable savings. In addition to the savings listed above, understand the longevity and maintenance cost which will be saved with Bajaj Windows & Doors.
uPVC is impervious to any type of weather. They are virtually maintenance free for their lifespan of 25 years. Manufacturing energy consumption for aluminum profiles is over 7 times of that for uPVC profiles. uPVC profiles can be recycled and re-used. In UK, “The Green Guide” published by the Building Research
Establishment (BRE) includes a detailed assessment of the environmental impact of different types of window. It compares windows made from PVC-U with those made from timber, aluminium and steel, and examines the affect they have on 13 different environmental criteria. These include everything from human health and climate change to waste disposal and damage to the ozone layer. The BRE’s Green Guide gives PVC-U an “A” rating for domestic windows and an “A+” rating (the highest awarded) for commercial windows.
Plastic products also conserve energy since they are lighter than alternative materials and use less fuel to transport. Plastic building components and insulation are extremely efficient in reducing conduction and infiltration into living spaces, lowering the amount of energy used for heating and cooling. Plastics generally require less energy to manufacture than equivalent products made of alternate materials. Because most PVC applications are long- term uses that are not disposed of quickly, relatively little (about two and a half percent) is found in the waste stream. PVC is highly recyclable and can be incinerated safely without harm to the environment.
PVC also resists attack from the corrosive action of water and soil conditions typically found in landfills. It remains inert and will not leach harmful chemicals into groundwater. uPVC windows have received top marks for environmental performance in a key international sustainable building rating system.
