There are many benefits of UPVC window locks that most homeowners don’t yet know about. In this article we will examine many of these factors, including how the UPVC window locks have the ability to prevent mould from spreading into your property by offering good ventilation. Also, outlining what features the locks have to maintain a secure and safe property, yet still allowing for air to flow through it. |
UPVC double glazed windows are now essential for maintaining a warm and cosy house, yet still remaining cost effective. Wooden windows have now became extremely outdated not only due to the them causing heating bills to be astronomically high as such windows are usually only single glazed, their frames also are unable to withstand poor weather conditions making them susceptible to rot, meaning maintenance of the windows can be extremely high in comparison to the new UPVC models. As many houses upgrade to UPVC windows in order to keep their property more environmentally friendly, as less heat is able to escape, less energy is therefore used to heat the property, keeping heating bills low. New UPVC windows are also able to withstand the worst of weather conditions, with little to no maintenance required. Not only do the owners need to choose what windows they want for their property but they also need to make the judgement on what locks to buy for the windows, in order to keep their home safe. But what other benefits do these new UPVC window locks bring?
Not only can this new breed of UPVC window locks be opened freely with a key, but also able to be locked onto different opening settings, to allow for different amounts of air flow into the house. Not letting air to flow through the property can have many negative effects to the property itself. Wooden windows do not typically allow for the through flow of air through the property and therefore are likely to cause condensation to be build up, which will then go on to produce mould, which is not only dangerous for the health of the occupants but also extremely unsightly. Keeping an adequate throughflow of air using UPVC window locks will allow for the water vapour to escape the property, the excess water vapour will then be free to escape, instead of being built up into dangerous moulds, which can negatively affect health.
Key for many people looking at buying new windows is their security, as many homeowners fear a break in. This makes the need for home security devices to be also on a fast growing rise. Due to UPVC window locks being extremely strong, they can be left on settings which open them a crack while being locked without the fear of a break in. This will benefit the users especially in the warmer seasons as the windows can to be left slightly ajar, keeping the house extremely secure, and still allowing for a cool throughflow of air into the building. This feature will be especially useful for downstairs windows for throughflow without jeopardising the safety of the property.
