You may have heard about energy efficient windows, but do you know how they work? It’s all very well for you to want to have energy efficient windows in your home because so-and-so down the road has them. However, if you don’t know what good they can do, you can’t really justify changing them, can you?
Here you can learn how energy efficient windows actually work and why you should consider having them installed in your home.

Whilst the term ‘energy efficient’ sounds way more eco-friendly, these windows all do the same job: prevent heat from escaping through them. You’re more likely to buy a window if you know that it’s energy efficient, right? So, how do these windows save energy?
Double glazed windows have two sheets of glass (triple glazed have three, of course) with a gap in between. This gap creates an insulating barrier that keeps heat in, which in turn, helps improve the energy efficiency of your home, meaning you will spend less on heating bills.
These energy efficient windows are available in various frame materials and styles. Performance is affected by the following factors:
There are different energy ratings for different frame materials. The type of frame you choose may be due to aesthetics, cost or energy ratings;
