Signs indicating that it is time to replace old windows and doors

 

Poor performance

Your old windows are letting air in, loosing grip (no sealing), which is creating an unpleasant draughty space, and a “mist” is forming between the inner and outer glass?

After installing new PVC windows and doors, these problems will be gone in an instant. Due to the insulation properties of the glass, and the profiles which offer excellent thermal and acoustic insulation, they will stop the draught and the circulation of warm or cold air. Your home will become pleasant and energy efficient throughout the year.

Large energy losses resulting in higher heating bills

One of the reasons for the higher bills can also be the energy inefficiency of space. Old joinery can cause up to 38% of the energy loss in a household. If your current windows are not energy efficient and have poor insulation properties, your air conditioning or heating must operate more frequently and use more power.
Lower your monthly bills – lower the heating and cooling bills by replacing old windows and doors with new ones. Choose double or triple window glass with Low E coatings. Low-e glass (low emissivity glass) enables the retention of hear inside the room and reduces the heat loss for up to 70% when compared to regular glass. Iveta PVC windows with Low-e glass are filled with argon. Argon has lower heat conductivity than air, and that additionally increases the insulation properties of PVC and ALU windows.

Strong sunlight destroyed your furniture and carpets

Regular windows do not provide UV radiation protection. If you want your home to be full of light and for sunlight to enter without obstructions, we recommend glass coated with Low-e coatings.
This type of glass will reflect solar UV radiation and prevent it from entering your home. This will protect your furniture, curtains, and carpets from bleaching.

You do not have an emergency exit

Windows and doors that are difficult to open can become a serious safety issue – they can prevent your exit from the house in cases when every second counts, e.g. if there is a fire.
New PVC windows and doors are easy to open and close. Also, they can be locked, so you do not have to worry about uninvited guests entering through the window.

Your windows are so old that they are no longer aesthetically acceptable (not pleasing to look at)

If you have the same set of windows and doors for decades, it is very likely that they are already visibly degraded – frames are chipped, glass is cracked or broken, stains no longer come out, and similar.

Improve the appearance of your home, inside and out, with new PVC windows and doors. PVC and ALU joinery has been designed to fit into every interior and exterior space. Choose from over 50 colours, textures, and window shapes, and make your living space nicer.

They are difficult to clean, maintain, and handle

Your windows are difficult to maintain, it is difficult to find replacement parts, and cleaning them is a nightmare?
New PVC windows and doors will resolve all of these problems for you. PVC and ALU joinery opens and closes without any effort, and due to its rounded and smooth lines, cleaning them is a piece of cake. Aside from the fact that replacement parts will not be a problem, maintenance has been reduced to a minimum – occasional sanding and coatings of varnish on a yearly basis will become history.

Allow us to make the decision easy for you

The decision to replace windows and doors is not easy, and the selection is rather wide.
What are the things to consider before deciding to replace old joinery?

The look and style of your home

If you are happy with the size and the style of the windows and doors currently installed in your home, the optimal option is to replace the old joinery with new PVC windows and doors of the same dimensions. The architecture of your home will not change; you will just add some new stylish flare to it.

When choosing joinery, you should also consider the colours that are dominant in your home, because windows are also a part of interior design. Choose handles, locks, and fittings that match the rest of the details in your home, to achieve a coordinated and even look.

Lifestyle

Modern windows and doors have many features that make your life easier. Whether you are the sort of people that are always “flying” around, with full schedules and fast lives, or you are more of a domestic, family type, new PVC windows and doors will save your precious time.
Thanks to modern technology, PVC and ALU windows require very little maintenance – no more sanding and varnishing profiles, and thanks to rounded edges, they can be cleaned easily and quickly.

Climate in your area

Climate conditions in your area will affect the selection of new PVC windows and doors, especially the selection of glass.

For colder climates, we recommend glass that will significantly reduce heat losses, i.e. the transfer of heat from heated spaces outward. These are multi-layered glass panes with low-e coatings and inert gas filling between the panes. Argon is most commonly used as the inert gas, krypton is also used but it is more expensive. The low-e coating prevents the transfer of heat by radiation and the inert gas prevents the transfer of heat by conduction.

For warmer climates, where it is mostly sunny, we recommend glass that prevents heating from direct sunlight, i.e. it reduces the energy used for air conditioning.
This type of glass allows you to keep your home pleasantly fresh even during the summer months.

The optimal solution would be triple-layer glass with inert gas in both spaces between the panes, and external glass with the solar coating and the internal glass with the low-e coating. This type of glass reduces heat losses in the winter period and heating during the summer months.

Budget

There are many factors that affect the price of windows and doors, even though the most important one is the material used to make the window: profile, glass panes, and fittings. The additional costs will result from the dimensions of the profiles, the shape of the windows and doors, and the colour of the profiles. Considering that the project of replacing old joinery with new windows and doors is a large one and a long-term investment, be careful when choosing all the components, so they would suit your needs adequately but also remain within the budget.

Do not throw your money out the window

Why not reduce heating and cooling bills? One of the most common reasons for replacing old joinery is increasing the energy efficiency of your home. Energy efficient joinery reduces energy loss, your bills, and the emission of Co2. Iveta windows and doors are more energy efficient than “regular” windows
Energy efficient features

Multiple glass panes

The insulation properties of double glass are almost twice as efficient as single glass, while triple glass maximises the energy efficiency.

Low-E (Low-emissivity) glass coating

One of the reasons for your bills can also be the energy inefficiency of space. Old joinery can cause up to 38% of the energy loss in a household. If your current windows are not energy efficient and do not have good insulation properties, your air conditioning or heating must work more frequently and use more power.
Lower your monthly bills – reduce the expenses for heating and cooling by replacing old windows and doors with new ones. Choose double or triple window glass panes with a Low E coating. Low-e glass panes (low emissivity glass) enable the retention of heat within a room and reduce the loss of heat up to 70% when compared to regular glass. Iveta PVC windows with Low-e glass are filled with argon. Argon has lower heat conductivity than air, which adds to the insulation properties of PVC and ALU windows.

Space between the panes filled with argon (inert gas)

Regular windows do not offer UV radiation protection. If you want your home to be full of light and for sunlight to enter without obstructions, we recommend glass coated with Low-e coatings.
This type of glass will reflect solar UV radiation and prevent it from entering your home. This will protect your furniture, curtains, and carpets from bleaching.
