New Zealand’s unique climate presents its own set of challenges, particularly when it comes to selecting the right windows and doors.
With varying temperatures and high humidity levels, it’s important to choose materials that are up to the task. At Eco Windows and Doors, we advocate for the use of uPVC, and here’s why:
1. Climate Compatibility
uPVC, or Unplasticised PolyVinyl Chloride, stands up well to New Zealand’s wide range of climatic conditions. It is incredibly resistant to corrosion caused by salty sea air and can handle high levels of UV radiation, which is common in our sunny locales.
2. Thermal Insulation
New Zealand experiences a significant temperature swing across seasons. uPVC windows and doors have excellent thermal insulating properties, helping to keep homes warm in winter and cool in summer, reducing reliance on heating and cooling systems.
uPVC is recyclable, making it an environmentally friendly choice. Plus, by reducing the need for heating and cooling, uPVC windows and doors contribute to lower carbon emissions.
4. Low Maintenance
uPVC windows and doors require little to no maintenance, unlike timber which needs regular treatment to prevent warping and rot. This is particularly beneficial in areas with high rainfall or humidity.
While the upfront costs of uPVC windows and doors might be higher than other materials, the long-term benefits of reduced energy bills and minimal maintenance make them a cost-effective solution in the long run.
At Eco Windows and Doors, we specialize in providing top-quality uPVC solutions tailored to withstand New Zealand’s unique climate. Our products not only ensure your home’s comfort but also contribute positively to the environment.
