If your windows and doors are older variants, they are likely far less efficient than modern double glazing. However, we suggest having your windows looked at just to be sure, as it could be as simple as replacing the glass with more efficient glazing.

With household energy prices set to skyrocket, homeowners are faced with a difficult time as they must balance heating their homes against soaring energy costs. This is especially tough when the colder weather rolls around, greatly affecting those whose properties aren’t properly equipped to handle sub-zero temperatures.
Rather than rely on your heating more, there’s a way to rely on your heating less without turning your property into an icebox. A large amount of heat is lost through the windows and doors. This usually occurs because of draughts, inefficient window frames or windows with single glass panes.
The most effective way to reduce energy costs and lower your carbon footprint is to replace your old windows and doors with modern, energy-efficient alternatives. Even replacing the glass can make a huge difference.
And if you’re prohibited from altering the windows, for example, as with a listed building, there’s another great solution. Secondary glazing can be installed inside behind the main window. This effectively turns the window into double glazing without altering the exterior.
Two different glazing options can provide energy efficiency – double glazing and triple glazing. These are windows with two or more glass panes contained in a sealed unit. The unit is surrounded by a frame made from uPVC, aluminium, or in some instances, even wood.
Double glazing consists of two glass panes with a gap of about 20mm in between. Triple glazing consists of three glass panes with two gaps. Into the gap, an inert gas, such as argon, is usually added that helps block heat transfer.
The actual efficiency of your windows depends on the frame materials and styles. Every set of windows is assigned a rating indicating how energy-efficient it is (how well the combined materials help stop heat passing through and how much air can leak around the window).
At Wimborne Windows, we supply top-rated windows and doors that can save property owners hundreds of pounds (£) per year.
So, now that you’ve had an opportunity to read about why you should consider double glazing to improve energy efficiency, let’s focus on the benefits. Windows with single glass panes will not stop cold air (or hot air in the summer) and dampness from entering your property. By switching to double glass panes, you can enjoy benefits that include:
We’ve talked above about how double glazing provides excellent cost savings, but let’s look at what else it provides. A property outfitted with modern windows and doors is likely to fetch more on the property market. This is because prospective buyers will pay upfront if it means reduced energy costs and a more comfortable home.
Speaking of comfort, one of the biggest issues property owners have is that their windows don’t provide a perfect seal. There’s nothing worse than being caught by an unpleasant draught. And older windows do little to stop properties from heating up in hot weather. The design of modern windows eliminates draughts and helps reflect heat.
Another issue that homeowners commonly experience is condensation. Nothing can stop condensation entirely. There’s a big difference between windows that are dripping with water and a small patch of condensation that quickly evaporates. Older windows with failing seals will often have condensation between the glass panes.
Single-glazed windows commonly suffer from condensation on the inside of the glass. Neither scenario is desirable, and modern solutions help prevent it. The design minimises energy transfer, keeping interior glass surfaces warmer and reducing the build-up of frost and condensation.
Single-hung units require a great deal more maintenance than double-hung units that tilt outwards. Cleaning and maintenance are also much easier with the latter option. Also, wooden frames need regular repainting and re-staining to stop them from rotting.
If you’ve ever been to a property with single-glazed windows or old double-glazed windows, you’ll instantly notice how much noisier it is. This is because the same design feature that lets energy-efficient windows seal out exterior temperatures also works to keep out external noises. As such, the ambient noise from passing vehicles, sirens, your neighbour’s garden antics, etc., is quieted.
Another issue with single-glazed windows is that they do very little to keep out the sun’s destructive ultraviolet rays. Not only is this bad for you, but it’s also bad for your home. Direct UV exposure will cause carpet, paint colours, curtains, wood floors, fabrics, etc., to fade and discolour, spoiling your property’s aesthetics.
Modern double-glazing features low-emissivity coatings that drastically reduce fade damage by up to 75%. Yet another reason to upgrade your home’s windows.
Lastly, installing double glazing is an eco-friendly thing to do as it drastically lowers heat loss, reducing energy consumption. Less energy consumption is always good for mother nature!
Here at Wimborne Windows, we strive to provide our customers with affordable solutions that enable them to greatly boost the energy efficiency of their homes. It’s not just about replacing the windows; the doors are also a primary way for heat to escape.
You may also find yourself in a position where you cannot replace the frames, or the glass is the problem, not the frames. In such situations, you’ll be pleased to hear that we can supply secondary glazing, and we can also replace just the glass, leaving your old frames intact.
Our windows are among the most energy efficient you’ll find anywhere. All our windows are A+ Rated Energy Efficient and BSI Kitemarked. This provides ample assurance that when installed, you’ll see your energy bills fall. In addition, you’ll find that our windows retain heat far more efficiently than what you likely have installed currently.
And depending on the shape of your property and your personal preferences, we can supply and fit a wide range of windows. This includes:

As stated above, it’s not just the windows through which heat can escape, and dampness can enter; the doors are another culprit to consider. If you have an old wooden door, it likely won’t keep out draughts or prevent heat from escaping. And if the door is glazed, you could be losing even more heat if the glazing isn’t up to standard.
We proudly design, manufacture, supply, and install a wide range of doors. We offer both composite and bi-folding options which are suited to different applications. Our doors come with the latest features, from market-leading security to premium-grade insulation.
Crucially, they are designed and fitted to eliminate draughts, keeping the cold out during winter and the heat out during summer.
Often, the solution isn’t to just replace the entire unit but to simply replace one part of it. For example, your current window frames may very well be up to the task, let down by the fitted glass. Or you may not have the budget to extend to replacing the entire unit. Switching out the glass for a more energy-efficient option can still make a huge difference.
And if you’re not able to change the outward appearance of your windows, then we can add secondary glazing. This internal option turns single-glazed windows into double-glazed windows without altering the exterior appearance.
At Wimborne Windows, we recognise that no two property owners will necessarily have the same requirements. While our name might contain the word ‘windows’, this is by no means the extent of our capabilities. We’ve discussed already how we can supply and install doors, but what else can we furnish your home with?
Perhaps you fancy a new conservatory. Maybe your fascias and soffits have seen better days. Or maybe you’d like a conservatory with better temperature control. Whatever the case might be, we’ve got you covered. Read on below to find out more about our excellent conservatories, fascias, soffits, and Guardian Warm Roofs.
A conservatory is a solid investment if you enjoy spending time outdoors without necessarily stepping foot outdoors. Conservatories are a great place to enjoy breakfast in the morning or an evening meal during the summer months. And it’s a great spot to stick up your feet and relax, even if the weather outside is not so cooperative.
The Wimborne Windows team can design a range of conservatory options, from P- and T-Shaped to Victorian and Lean-To conservatories. Whatever your vision, we’ll make it a reality with a new conservatory that’ll complement your property.
Fascias and soffits do more than enhance the appearance of a building; they also protect it. They shield the exterior surfaces, such as the cladding, from the elements. They also help protect the exterior surface from any water that might come off the roof.
They can lose their lustre with time and exposure, spoiling the building’s appearance and reducing the protection they offer. Call our team now if your fascias and soffits need replacing, and we’ll provide you with a FREE, no-obligation quote.
Conservatories are great, but often let down by the glass roof. Glass is lousy at temperature regulation, so conservatories are often too hot or too cold to sit out in. Guardian Warm Roofs are tiled roofs that match the rest of the property. Tiled roofs are superior in every way at temperature regulation, meaning your conservatory will always be at the right temperature.
So, you can make full use of this extra space, whether as a home gymnasium, office, entertainment room, or just as a place to spend your days relaxing.
