If your residence in India is not retaining heat efficiently, it may lead to increased electricity expenses, a diminished quality of life, and adverse effects on the environment. To ensure optimal energy utilization for warming your home, it's crucial to minimize the potential for heat loss within the dwelling.
In a typical Indian home, windows constitute only about 5 to 10 per cent of the total surface area, yet they can account for up to 40 per cent of the total heat loss. The extent of this heat loss is influenced by various factors including the quality of the glass, the dimensions of the window area, the airtightness, and the insulation surrounding the window.
By enhancing insulation and curbing heat loss through windows, there can be a significant decrease in energy usage. Moreover, opting to replace aged windows and doors can further assist in conserving electricity and protecting the environment.
Windows in aluminium are sustainable.
Installing better insulation and reducing heat loss from windows will reduce the energy demand considerably. You can also save both electricity and the environment by replacing old windows and doors.
Glass panels and heat conservation in India
In modern times, a growing number of individuals are opting to infuse their homes with a refreshed ambiance by incorporating expansive windows and glass panels. These installations not only invite more natural light but also foster a sense of spatial expansiveness. However, this does not have to compromise heat retention and energy efficiency, particularly in the diverse climatic conditions prevalent in India. In India, where we experience a varied range of climatic conditions, it becomes imperative to select products tailor-made for our specific regional climates. Your choice should gravitate towards doors and glass panels that exhibit superior thermal insulation capabilities, capable of withstanding the harshness and unpredictability of local weather patterns. Opting for aluminium glass panels and sliding doors can strike a harmonious balance between aesthetic appeal and effective thermal insulation. TECHNAL can provide façade solutions compliant with energy-efficient standards suitable for Indian homes. By eliminating drafts from windows, it's possible to moderate indoor temperatures, promoting a more comfortable living environment while also reducing energy expenditures.
Opt for Glass Panels with Insulating Qualities
To minimize heat dissipation in your homes, it is essential to choose doors and windows equipped with superior insulation. One way to gauge the insulating efficiency of a window or glass door is through its U-value, which denotes the amount of heat that passes through a one square meter of a window or door when there is a temperature difference of one degree Celsius. Essentially, a lower U-value signifies better thermal insulation capabilities.
It's important to note that the U-value encompasses not just the properties of the glass, but also the cumulative heat loss through the sill, frame, and glass. A wise choice would be to opt for an aluminium frame designed with a thermally broken bridge paired with triple glazing, laying a solid foundation for achieving a lower U-value. Further incorporating a highly insulating sill can enhance the airtightness, augmenting the insulation efficiency.
TECHNAL range of insulators and seals are designed to curtail heat loss optimally, ensuring heightened air and water tightness. This translates to diminished energy consumption, fostering a comfortable and energy-efficient home environment in India.
Proper installation of glass panels influences heat mitigation
Heat loss in glass doors and windows refers not only to the product’s inherent properties, but also to how they are installed. An outer wall has an external and an internal side. We find a zero point inside the wall, which shows the transition from a warm to a cold temperature. It is important that the windows are installed in the warm zone, where the temperature is above zero. If the window is installed too far out in the facade, it can end up in the cold zone, so the thermal insulating properties are not fully exploited.
Aluminium in glass panels is a sustainable choice
Aluminium is a strong, lightweight material with a long life. Aluminium is therefore often used in exposed environments and in places with harsh weather conditions, where it lasts for generations. Using aluminium contributes to sustainable buildings, thanks to constructions with high energy performance, safety and comfort. Aluminium can also be recycled and turned into new products in a endless cycle – with no deterioration in quality. Both recycling and energy efficiency are important environmental protection measures. Aluminium products from TECHNAL give your home new qualities, more daylight and a modern design, without impacting the environment any more than necessary.
