How to Clean Vinyl Windows
A single pane of glass used to be the only option for windows, but not anymore. Double pane windows have become very popular in new construction and as replacement windows over the years, due to their energy efficient properties and other advantages, such as sound reduction. Double pane windows are very good insulators, keeping warm air in and cold air out. What makes them such effective insulators? Part of the answer lies not in the glass itself, but in the space in between the two panes.
The space between the two panes in a double pane window is usually about half an inch wide, and is typically filled with argon or another inert gas. These gases are nontoxic, nonreactive, clear, and odorless. Argon is also inexpensive, making it a common choice for this purpose.
Inert gasses are heavier and denser than air, so their molecules do not move as easily. Having inert gasses between the panes of glass makes it more difficult for the warmer inside air to pass through the glass to the colder outside. This helps keep warm air from escaping during the cold winter months, saving on heating costs.
With lower heat loss, the window's R-Value, which measures its resistance to heat flow, is increased. A higher R-Value means a more energy-efficient window. A single pane glazed window generally has an R-Value of about 0.85, and a double pane glazed window without an argon fill may have an R-Value between 1.5 and 2.0. A double pane glazed window with an argon gas fill is considerably more energy efficient, as seen by its higher R-Value, between 2.7 and 3.6.
The History of Wooden Windows
When people talk about aluminium windows and doors for use in your home, they will often tell you that they are 'maintenance free' and that 'all you have to do is install them and leave them'. This, however, is not entirely true, as some maintenance is needed to keep aluminium frames damage free. Otherwise, some of the below problems may occur.
This can prove to be highly damaging to aluminium windows and doors over time, as it can cause condensation to build up on the surface. Whenever you are cleaning your windows and doors, you should check the outlets for dirt and other obstructions, being sure to clean them out.
Window Sashes Won't Open
The most common reasons for this occurring are if the sash is twisted, if the friction stays are too tight, or if the building has settled and the aluminium frame has swollen. If the friction stays are too tight, it is easily fixed by loosening or replacing them. Unfortunately, if the sash has twisted you will need a professional to repair it (as you are likely to break the glass if you try). You will also need a professional repair if the issue is due to the building settling (as there is construction work involved).
