Our uPVC windows have become very popular in recent years as an alternative to aluminium or wood window systems due to their durability and lower price point.
Alpine UPVC windows are extremely energy efficient. Alpine window systems have a very low thermal conductivity thanks to the materials used in manufacture. Precise manufacturing ensures heat can’t escape as easily as with alternative materials. As a rule of thumb, they’re 25% more efficient than other types of double pane windows.
Thermal conductivity is very low and heat loss is minimized in uPVC windows. This means your house remains warmer for far longer and actually requires less energy to retain heat. In turn, this will be reflected in much lower energy bills.
uPVC windows are manufactured to keep out the elements and have been used many times in marine work where their quality is heavily tested. They are fully waterproof as they don’t absorb moisture. Although they aren’t fireproof, UPVC windows are fire resistant and unlike wood windows, they can’t accidentally catch fire.
uPVC windows won’t corrode, rot or warp, meaning that they’re essentially maintenance-free. They don’t even need repainting during their lifetime. However, if you want to change the colour of the frames, you can paint them by choice. With strong steel fittings and 2 panes of glass, uPVC windows provide a strong deterrent to burglars.
If you are considering replacing your windows, then speak to Alpine who will be able to talk you through various options and styles. Why not ensure your home is fully protected from the elements this winter and fit Alpine UPVC windows?
