Conservatories, and conservation areas
Even the best quality glazing loses heat more quickly than an uninsulated cavity wall, which means that conservatories are not thermally efficient and should not be heated. However, Estimates provided they are not heated and the doors to the conservatory are kept shut in cold weather, they can actually reduce heat loss by acting as an extra insulating layer outside your house. You can make the most of this by installing a sealed sliding door and sealed blinds or heavy lined curtains to separate the conservatory more effectively from the rest of your house
Double glazing, blinds and curtains can all reduce the amount of heat wasted, but it is not possible to bring a conservatory up to the thermal standard of even an averagely insulated room. If you want to save energy and money, save your conservatory for the summer.
Double glazing can reduce your fuel bills, as well as increase the real value of the house and improve the comfort of your own property. Double glazed windows consist of two panes of glass separated by a gap which creates an insulating barrier and reduces heat loss from a property. To make your windows even more energy efficient, it is possible to fill the gap with a gas such as argon or xenon.
Coming to the cost of UPVC windows, despite their affordability, figuring out the cost is a tad bit difficult, as it depends on a number of factors, which includes the likes of the total number of windows that need to be refitted or replaced in a single property, the size or measurement of the windows, the kind of glass panels being used, whether they are UV resilient or with double or triple glazing and whether they are ones with low-E and lastly on the style, finish and colour of the material used in the UPVC windows.
Finally, if you live in a conservation area or a listed building there may be restrictions on what you can do to your windows.
