Why are my uPVC windows letting in cold air?
June 15, 2019
One of the most common signs that your window needs to be repaired or replaced is when it lets in cold air. This may be due to damage or failure in the window seal. This happens naturally over time, but no there’s no need to panic. For over 30 years, Jack of Glass has been installing new and replacement uPVC windows in homes in High Wycombe and throughout Buckinghamshire. We also offer a comprehensive repair service to fix issues that you may have with your double glazing.
We’ve collected a few other signs that your windows may need to be repaired or replaced:
There’s condensation between the glass panes of my window
This is a sign that the seal on the windows is damaged or broken down. If this is the case, your windows will have to be repaired or replaced.

My energy bills are high
There are several measures you can take to improve the energy efficiency of your home, including changing energy providers and switching to LED lightbulbs. Updating to double glazed windows could save as much as £155 a year on your energy bills. A draught meandering between rooms leaves an unpleasant chill in the air, leading to most people to turn up the heating. Make draughts a thing of the past and save money by updating to newer energy efficient double glazed windows.
My uPVC windows are cracked
This may seem like an obvious sign, but small hairline cracks can also drastically affect the comfort in your home. Double glazed windows will generally feature an insulating layer of gas between the panes of glass. Releasing this gas radically affects the window’s ability to retain heat and keep the elements at bay.
