Should you take your window selection as seriously as possible?
Should you take your window selection as seriously as possible? Of course it is! After all, your choice determines whether you will be warm and comfortable for the next 20 years and how much money will be saved by the windows!
As the window is not technically a simple construction, we recommend to pay attention to 3 important components: profile, glass unit and fittings.
1. PVC profile.
The basis of the window. The frame in which the insulating glass unit is installed.
How do you distinguish a quality profile from a cheap one? Simple - the main criterion is the thickness of the outer walls of the profile. Thin-walled profile makes the window unpredictable.
There is no doubt that hardware is the part of the window that guarantees the quality of the window for many years and therefore you should not economize on it. We recommend to choose window fittings of those manufacturers who testified high quality for years of work. We always recommend German WinkHaus hardware.
3. Insulating glass unit.
Double-glazed window is nothing else but a hermetic construction of two or more glasses. It is the indisputable basic component that saves heat and creates soundproofing.
And the double-glazed windows with energy-saving or sunscreening glasses do it more effectively! They save heat in winter and cool the room in summer.
For example, a single-glazed window with an energy-saving I-glass will save 64% of the heat loss compared to a standard single-glazed window.
