Pilkington Optitherm S1 Glass
So how does it work and how can replacing double glazing with new double glazing be any more energy efficient? The answer is in the glazing technology. Pilkington Optitherm S1 glass has a microscopically thin transparent coating which reflects the heat back into the room, better still it is invisible. If you would like to read the technical data please click here (link to Pilkington guide) but better than that we have set up a demonstration unit at our showrooms where you can see the various types of glass and how they react when placed over an infrared heat lamp, you will be amazed with the difference, the normal double glazed unit will get instantly hot once placed over a heat source as the heat moves through it while the Ultrawarm glass unit will remain cold as the heat is blocked from moving through the glass unit.
We do not reglaze old aluminium windows as these frames are poor insulators and generally suffer from a lot of condensation due to the cold nature of the aluminium frame, replacing the glass in these windows will not solve the condensation problem and it is likely that you will need to replace these frames in time so in these instances we would advise changing the entire windows frame and we are happy to quote you for this work.
The best candidates for reglazing are existing PVC windows which just have poor performing double glazed units, these windows can be converted with Ultrawarm Energy Efficient glass quickly and cost effectively and you will see the difference instantly.
