All windows in the UK come with their own unique energy rating. Why? Well, for one, it determines how well they perform as determined by The Window Energy Rating (WER) system, with G being the worst and A+ being the best.
This probably won't come as a surprise but the older windows out there tend to be towards to rear end of the scale (G) as their performance is known to decrease over time.
Here at NE Glazing Systems Ltd, we have a minimum rating requirement of A, giving you that extra peace of mind.
People often get confused with this, so let us break it down for you.
In a nutshell, U-Value is a means to measure the thermal efficiency of a product, including walls, doors and windows.
U-Value provides an overall heat energy transfer rate through a specific section of material; a roof, double glazing or a wall.
The lower the rating, the more comfortable the room temperature and the more comfortable a specific room may be.
Since the early part of the 21st Century, there are a number of building regulations that apply to replacement windows and glazing. The regulations apply to things like thermal performance and other areas such as air supply, means of escape and ventilation.
Here are the areas we adhere to, ensuring that the highest standards are met in accordance with the law.
PART A – Structure
PART B – Fire Safety
PART F – Ventilation
PART K – Protection from Falling
PART L – Conservation of Fuel & Power
PART M – Access to and use of Buildings
PART N – Glazing Safety
PART Q – Security
