To answer this question, we need to know a few things about your home.  Understanding what the climate is where you live as well as what direction your windows are facing allows us to give you the best advice for picking the right glass.


By choosing the right glass you can use the orientation of your house to your advantage. In addition to the position of your house, the position and shading of your windows is also an important consideration. In general, high insulation performance is a good option, while the level of solar control you’ll need depends on climate. Cooler climates favour products which allow in more heat, while warmer climates in the north of the country benefit from glass that keeps warmth out.

For more on choosing the right glass for your climate and house orientation check out our Energy Performance page where we get into the detail.
