Thermal Efficiency

Synseal is committed to making products as eco-friendly and energy efficient as possible. But why do we do this? What’s the benefit to you when you purchase new double glazed windows, doors or a conservatory?

New regulations in the industry ensure that the minimum rating a window must be for energy accreditations is a “C” standard. To achieve this systems companies had to increase the technology within uPVC window design. The result was Thermally Reinforced uPVC. This is where the inner of the uPVC window is broken by little pockets that trap the air and reduce heat loss. By slowing down the airflow in each chamber less air cannot escape and cold air cannot penetrate the window frame as easily.

The A rating is the most efficient rating and G is the least energy efficient. Not only can it save an enormous amount of money on energy bills, (which today seems to be the most expensive payout for many homeowners), as well as contributing to saving the environment.

So what does this mean for you? When specifying your window it pays to ask for “A” rated windows that are thermally broken to ensure you maximize the energy efficiency through the frame saving you money. If you couple a thermally broken frame with high spec glass the saving increases further!

From our A-rated windows to our insulated GRP flat roofs, Synseal home improvements are designed to actively help you to reduce your carbon footprint, saving you money in the process.
