U-values measure the amount of heat loss that occurs through a window; therefore the lower the U-value the more energy efficient the window. All Avondale windows exceed building regulation requirements for energy efficiency.
Avondale windows only use frames which are designed with a number of chambers within the profile system. Each chamber acts as a barrier against heat loss from inside the home, and against cold air entering from outside. This multi-chamber design ensures that the frame provides superior thermal efficiency from the outset.
Energy efficient glazing units feature high performance Soft Coat glass and Warm Edge spacer bar technology. Soft Coat maximises heat gain by retaining interior heat and absorbing solar heat. Warm edge spacer bar technology helps eliminate cold areas within the unit and reduce condensation. Our energy efficient frames and glazing units eliminate the need for other expensive units such as low iron glass or Krypton gas fill whilst still providing the same high levels of thermal performance.
Avondale double glazed windows offer U-values of 1.4 and 1.2w/sqmK . Upgrading to triple glazed windows can further reduce the overall U-value to as low as 0.8w/sqmK. You could be reducing your home heating bills by up to 40%thereby improving the overall energy performance of your home by choosing Avondale Window Systems.
