Do you need a trickle vent in your UPVC window

UPVC windows are a revolution in construction and they are the preferred windows of choice. This is because they provide protection against harsh weather as well as from thieves. UPVC windows have many advantages and this is why they are one of the most coveted windows in the market. Most individuals who would like to build or renovate their house always choose to use UPVC windows.

With all their advantages, most people usually overestimate the functionality of a UPVC window. They assume that such a window does not need any trickle vents fitted as is the case with other types of windows. However, it is important to note that window ventilation is important regardless of the type of windows that the individual chooses to have.

UPVC windows work so well because they have double glazing which makes them very beneficial during winter. This is because the windows act as insulators and they therefore ensure that the room has enough heat and that the cold stays out. The heat is always maintained at comfortable levels and the house will never overheat. However, this could present a problem whenever the sun is too hot. This is because there is a risk of the house becoming too hot. This is where trickle vents become useful for the UPVC windows.

Trickle vents are generally small holes that are fitted along window frames and which help in ventilation. This is what helps the house to remain cool especially during the summer months. The homeowner should not be afraid that the trickle vents will result in too much draught or noise when it is windy. Furthermore, most trickle vents can be closed and if there is too much wind, the individual could use the little flap to shut the vents.

Trickle vents can be fitted into new as well as older windows that are built in an older style. They should always be considered in UPVC windows as they will ensure that the individual is able to experience the benefits of these windows fully without any of the disadvantages that may come with them.
