What is SHGC?

SHGC stands for Solar Heat Gain Co-efficient.  A fraction of solar radiation admitted through a window or door (either transmitted directly and/or absorbed) is subsequently released as head inside the home.  The lower the SHGC rating of a window the less solar heat it transmits and the greater its ability to block heat gained from the sun in summer.  A window / door with a high SHGC rating is more effective at collecting solar heat gain during winter and keeping the home warm.  Our windows and doors have a SHGC rating of 0.45

I sourced the windows for my passive solar designed house from Elite Double Glazing. I chose double glazed UPVC windows for the thermal performance and low maintenance characteristics they offer. I am happy to recommend the company and the product.  In all my dealings throughout the process of buying, transporting and installing the windows, the prompt responses and reasonable pricing were a significant part of my decision to deal with the company.
