Did you know that your windows and doors account for an estimated 25% of total energy loss in your home? This is why it’s crucial that your new MPS Windows, doors or conservatories not only look great, but also deliver optimum levels of energy efficiency.
Whether you’re thinking about buying new double or triple glazed windows or doors, you need to be armed with the right knowledge on how they will perform, as although many windows and doors look similar, they actually vary in levels of performance.
Window Energy Ratings provide a useful traffic light system which measures performance, this includes it’s effectiveness at keeping droughts out, the warmth that it adds to your home through “Solar Gain”, and how effective it is at preventing heat loss in your property.
What Makes Your Windows and Doors Energy Efficient?
It goes without saying that glass is the most important factor when it comes to the energy efficiency of your windows and doors. Our glass sealed units are manufactured with the latest innovative technology. We also use warm-edge spacer bars which are used to separate the sheets of glass to create space between the cold air on the outside and the warm air on the inside, this cavity is then filled with argon gas which creates an invisible and high performing layer of insulation keeping your home warm and of course your energy bills lower, even in typical British weather!
Our frames have an internal multi chamber honeycomb system creating a sequence of thermal barriers between the cold outside air, and the warm air inside.
2) PVCu and Composite Doors
Although it’s the most important, it’s not only the glass stealing the show when it comes to energy efficiency. The same principles apply with our PVCu Panels and Composite Doors which use a super high density polyurethane foam core in the leaf which provides excellent performing insulation. This maximises the thermal efficiency of your composite door by up to 20% when compared to a traditional timber front door.
Our roof glass and solid roof options also have the latest energy saving technology which guarantee the lowest possible u-values and highest solar reflections. All this with one common goal in mind, keeping you warm in the winter, and cool in the summer.
