PVC windows and doors are an essential complement to assure the building the same performance of the other components in terms of thermal and acoustic insulation. PVC windows are commonly known as double or triple glazing panes framed by a rigid PVC structure. Every glass pane is separated by a vacuum or gas filled space to reduce heat transfer.
An important role is played by the frame in which the double glass panel is set.
Window profiles made of PVC score top marks when compared with aluminium or wooden windows. They have better insulation values and are able to reduce energy and heating costs.
There is a particularly high energy saving potential when using PVC window frames in the passive house standard. With the following benefits:
PVC double gazing windows by keeping home inside temperature more stable bring more living comfort inside
Double glazed windows improve sound insulation by creating a barrier between the home and the environment outside.
LOWER ENERGY BILLS
the thermal insulation generated by PVC windows results in less energy used to heat up or cool down the space, and therefore in lower energy bills.
A MORE SECURE HOME
Because they’re sealed tighter than other windows, it is also tougher to force them open from the outside.
ENHANCED HOME VALUE
PVC windows are now a key issue in evaluating a property because they do no not need any maintenance and their average life span is nearly the double of a conventional one. Therefore by reducing the amount of sun and heating entering the room they help to reduce sun damage to paintings, furniture, carpets and any other object around the home.
REDUCED CARBON FOOTPRINT
In addition to its contribution to energy reduction PVC windows are 100 % recyclable and therefore resource-saving.
