Traditional Aluminum VS. uPVC Windows
If you’re in the market for purchasing new windows for your home, there are many factors that need to be considered. Aluminum windows are well known for their durability but uPVC constructed from virgin vinyl is just as impact resistant and offers you the added energy efficiency you won’t find with an aluminum window.
Aluminum windows are simply ineffective at holding in heat. If you’re interested in decrease your monthly energy bill by purchasing energy efficient windows, aluminum isn’t going to be the right material for you. The aluminum material isn’t designed to contain heat the same way a uPVC vinyl window is. This is easily evident by looking at a Coke can in the summer time. The condensation that builds up on the outside of the can is the same thing you will experience inside your home. So, in addition to wasting energy you will also be at risk to moisture damage thanks to the condensation buildup that wouldn’t happen with a uPVC window.
On the other hand, uPVC windows are made with energy efficiency in mind. At no point will you need to worry about heat escaping your home because with the thermal reinforcements and added insulation found in these windows, heat transfer is nearly impossible. In fact, once you install a uPVC window on your home you will begin to notice a decrease in your monthly energy bill instead of the increase you would experience with an aluminum window.
