What is the Best Type of Window Frame?

Choosing the Right Window Frame for Your Home

Greg and Sue inquired about the best types of window frames for their new home and learned about the options from Fry’s Energywise. Timber frames, while requiring more maintenance, are less heat-conductive and therefore more energy-efficient than aluminum frames. However, for those seeking even better performance, UPVC frames are a popular choice due to their lower thermal conductivity. An alternative available in Australia is thermally broken aluminum frames, which incorporate a rubber barrier between sections to significantly reduce heat transfer. Each type of frame offers distinct advantages in terms of energy efficiency, maintenance, and performance. Consulting with Fry’s Energywise can help you understand which window frame best suits your needs and complies with energy efficiency standards, ensuring your new home is both comfortable and cost-effective.
