The level of insulation offered by any replacement window is made up from a combination of the insulation of the frame, and that of the glass or ‘sealed unit’ that is used. Other factors such as frame size and air leakage are taken into consideration, so all in all it’s quite a difficult calculation to understand.
That’s why the government has introduced the Window Energy Ratings Scheme. By using the same ratings system that items such as fridges and washing machines have been using for years, it is now possible to rate a window from any given supplier. The finished window combination is independently tested, and awarded a rating from A to C.
Those achieving a C-rating or above (or have a maximum U-Value of 1.6 W/m2k) demonstrate they have been designed, manufactured and tested to provide the minimum legal requirement of overall thermal efficiency.
