Why choose replacement windows?

People get their windows replaced for lots of different reasons. One of the most common reasons is that their windows might not be performing as well as they used to. You might be finding that single glazing is not doing enough to keep outside chills at bay, or even that your double glazing is now started to show its age. As modern technology has advanced, many more people are recognising the benefits that triple glazing brings, not just in banishing nuisance draughts but in boosting energy-efficiency levels and slashing the bills. Poorly fitted frames or damaged frames may also necessitate a window upgrade, or maybe you just like the idea of sprucing up your home.

Whatever your reason for considering replacement windows, at Lifestyle we have over 25 years of experience so are more than happy to share our unrivalled expertise with you.

What do I need to consider when choosing replacement windows?

With so much choice on offer when buying replacement windows, it can be daunting deciding what is best for your home. As a family-run business based in Nottingham, we are friendly and approachable so are more than happy to discuss the different options with you. Alternatively, read our informative Window Buying Guide to get information on everything you need to know, enabling you to enjoy the decision-making process rather than feel daunted by it.

Can you dispose of my existing windows?
As part of our window replacement service, we will take care of the safe disposal of your existing window so you do not have to worry about it. We are committed to helping to protect the environment, so you can rest assured that we will dispose of your old windows in as ‘green’ a way as possible. Glass, plastic and timber materials are separated, for example, for safe recycling. The great thing is that we will not even charge you anything extra for this service.

Why does energy efficiency matter when buying replacement windows?

If your windows do not perform well at keeping warm air in or blocking outside chills, you will find that you need to heat your house more in order to maintain it at a warm and comfortable level. However, energy-efficient windows are designed to stop warm air from escaping whilst keeping out draughts, so you will be less reliant on needing to put the heating thermostat up. Ultimately, this means you can save on your energy bills, so good-quality windows can be a sound investment for your home.

How do you know if a window is energy-efficient or not? Many industry bodies and federations help consumers to understand the energy efficiency and performance of their windows by rating them. In particular, when choosing replacement windows, keep your eyes open for BFRC, which awards the performance of windows with a WER Rating.

Windows can be rated from A to G, with A being the best. Windows that have been awarded an A rating also achieve a number based on performance. A10 translates as an A+, for example, and anything above this will get an extra number after the plus.

What can Lifestyle Windows do for me?

When you get in contact with us, remember that no job is too small. Every job will be given equal consideration and importance, whether you want a complete window replacement or you just require a window lock fitted.

How do Lifestyle’s windows compare?
As a business with over 25 years of experience, you can be assured of being offered the highest-quality windows incorporating the latest technology. With our double-glazed windows achieving an outstanding A+12 energy rating, and our triple-glazed windows awarded an exceptional A+21 rating, you can be confident that our windows are the very top of the range.

When upgrading your windows with either double or triple glazing, there are four main benefits that you need to bear in mind:

Keeps heat in

With a 20mm gap filled with argon gas between the windowpanes, our replacement double-glazing windows are warmer than ever before. Locking heat in and keeping the chills out, our windows score top marks for energy-efficiency. Our double-glazing panes have achieved a noteworthy A+12 energy rating, whilst a remarkable A+21 rating as been awarded to our triple glazing.

award icon

Strong and safe

We appreciate that safety is a top priority when choosing replacement windows, so that is why our double and triple-glazed windows are made with sturdy 4mm-thick reiterated glass panes. This cutting-edge glass is super-tough, so you can rest assured it is extremely difficult to break.

award icon

Excellent sound insulation

Heat and sound insulation improves the higher the quality of glass, so if you have single glazing, do not expect much protection from external noise or draughts. On the other hand, our double and triple glazing come with innovative technology such as argon gas between panes, offering unrivalled levels of sound insulation.

Acoustic glass upgrade

All our windows are available with an optional upgrade to feature Pilkington Optiphon™ Acoustic laminated glazing. Different glass thicknesses are combined with a special PVB (polyvinyl butyral) interlayer to enhance acoustic performance. Pilkington Optiphon™ Acoustic glass will help to significantly reduce exterior noise transmission without any negative impact on the window’s thermal performance and light admission capacity. It is an excellent upgrade option for homes located near airports, busy roads, railway lines and in noisy city centres.

Tough and secure

Secure windows act as a deterrent to intruders, so for greater peace of mind you will be pleased to discover our replacement windows excel when it comes to security. Not only have we achieved a security level that is twice the British security standard for mechanical loading, but the inclusion of innovative multi-point locking systems means our windows will resist burglary attempts four times longer than those of our competitors.
