Why choose pvc windows
1. PVC windows is number one in energy efficiency
The window frame plays a decisive role in promoting energy-efficient and economical thermal insulation. Window profiles made of PVC score highest compared to aluminium or wooden windows. They have better insulating properties and are able to reduce energy and heating costs. Particularly high energy-saving potential is offered by the use of PVC window frames in passive house standards (Kommerling 88). Passive house windows can now be manufactured efficiently and cost-effectively using state-of-the-art PVC profiles and the now fairly common triple glazing.
2. PVC windows have a very good cost-benefit ratio
PVC windows offer a clear cost advantage, both at purchase and over their entire life cycle. Wooden frames are approximately 20-30% more expensive than PVC profiles, while aluminium windows cost 30% more, the most expensive alternative. Based on the high energy-saving potential and minimal maintenance over a lifetime of more than 50 years, costs are also saved in the long term.
3. PVC windows are easy to care for
High-quality uPVC windows are extremely easy to care for and require minimal maintenance. Wooden windows, on the other hand, need to be glazed approximately every two years and painted every five years. State-of-the-art PVC granulate is extremely weatherproof and light-resistant. To clean the window frames, washing-up liquid is sufficient due to the easy-care properties of the smooth profile surfaces.

High-quality windows are distinguished by their resistance to deformation and high level of functionality over many years. Due to their long service life of at least 50 years, PVC windows are an excellent investment, also from the point of view of preserving property value.
5. are characterised by excellent environmental sustainability
PVC windows in 100% are recyclable and thus save resources. 40% of all the world's gas and oil reserves are used to heat and supply energy to buildings, while only 4% is used to produce plastics, of which only 1% is used to produce PVC. In addition to being recyclable, the durability and low levels of pollution in the production of PVC profiles help to achieve an excellent environmental balance and contribute to environmental protection. PVC windows are significantly more durable than wooden windows and use considerably less energy in the production process.
Establishing the GM PLAST recycling initiative, the sector uPVC windows is committed to sustainability and increasing, where possible, the recycling of old windows, door frames and roller shutters to 100%. The PVC content is shredded and processed to produce pellets and can be recycled at least seven times. PVC windows Kommerling can only be produced with environmentally friendly stabilisers. Today Kommerling already produces only profiles with lead-free stabilisers. It is therefore worth opting for PVC windows.
