double glazed units insulation

Trinity Glazing, based in Edinburgh, supply and fit Heritage Double Glazed Units, which provide the best window insulation and increase the solar factor in domestic or commercial properties.

For low U-Value windows, Heritage Double Glazed Units are what you need, and Trinity Glazing is who to call. Insulation is measured in U-Values. A lower U-Value number means better insulation. U-Values measure how well heat transfers into or out of a building. To determine how well heat transfers in or out of a building, the U-Value calculation looks at the entire window, including frame, sash, and glass. Trinity Glazing, based in Edinburgh, install Heritage Double Glazed Units with low U-Value numbers, that keep the heat in and the cold out.

When measuring the U-Value of window insulation, more than one factor affects heat loss or gain in double glazing. These factors include convection, radiant heat loss, and conduction. Where there are several windows, especially when windows are of a reasonable size, these are important factors to consider. A major concern for many residential and commercial property owners is energy costs. Excellent window insulation is an important factor in managing energy costs. To achieve low U-Value numbers, the use of emissivity glass, which reflects heat back into the room, is ideal. Use of an insulating gas also helps. Heritage Double Glazed Units use both emissivity glass and an insulating gas.

Cold Air

When cold air enters a home through gaps in doors or windows, the convection currents transfer heat in the loft to the roof tiles. Double glazing can reduce heat loss through windows. Double glazed windows have air or a vacuum between two panes of glass. If the double glazing has a vacuum there will be no conduction or convection. Convection is minimised with air between the glass of double-glazed windows, as there is little room for the air to move. The use of high insulation Heritage Double Glazed Units will slow down convection and improve the comfort within your home.

Homes lose heat through the walls, the roof, and the windows. This is call radiant heat loss. When warm internal air contacts the cold glass in a single glass window, it radiates or transfers the heat outwards through the glass at a constant rate. Heritage Double Glazed Units use low emissivity glass to reflect the long wave radiation or heat back into the room. Heritage Double Glazed Units reduce the radiant heat loss in homes.

Homes and buildings lose heat energy through the roof, windows, walls, floors and through gaps around windows and doors. Conduction heat loss is the transfer or movement of heat along or through a material or a gas. Heritage Double Glazed Units are constructed with a warm edge spacer to increase the U-Value, low emissivity glass to reflect the heat back into the room, and low conductive inert gas to ensure that the maximum possible insulation is obtained.

Reduce Heat Loss

Heritage Double Glazed Units utilise and maximise the latest technology to reduce the heat loss by convection, radiant heat loss, and conduction. The unique small cavity and small perimeter seal in Heritage Double Glazed Units provide the best possible insulation available today.

The Trinity Glazing team supply and fit Heritage Double Glazed Units throughout Edinburgh, the Lothians, and all surrounding areas. Insulate your home or building with Heritage Double Glazed Units. Constructed with an inner pane of low emissivity glass, which reflects the heat back into the room, and an outer pane of clear glass, Heritage Double Glazed Units come in a variety of cavity depths: 4mm, 6mm, 8mm The wider cavities offer improved insulation but have no effect on sound insulation.

With a 7mm perimeter seal and very thin cavities, Heritage Double Glazed Units look like single glazing from any distance. Heritage Double Glazed Units are suitable for use in timber windows too.

Solar Factor

When sunshine comes through a window and heats up the room, it is known as the solar factor. This equates to a bit of free heating. The solar factor also increases a window’s energy rating. Having Heritage Double Glazed Units will increase your window energy rating and your solar factor.
