i am still wondering if pvc is better than aluminium ?

 

There are great aluminum products and crappy aluminum products, there are great plastic windows and crappy plastic windows. Nothing wrong with good wooden windows either. 

 

What are you hoping to gain from the "upgrade"? 

 

It might be a good idea to read up on windows before you actually pull the trigger.

I have aluminium. The frames get very hot in the sun. Not good for my aircons.

Those are the cheap type. Good aluminum frames have thermal breaks. But since most people prefer cheap including the original poster, it's a very valid comment.

Incorrect even in the cheap frames there are 3 different thickness of profiles & once you move up in quality there are many different frames, some of them include thermal breaks.

 

It is a good idea to know, at least, something about the subject  before posting. From your post It’s clear that you know little about aluminium frames

You'll have to pay much more for the thermally-broken aluminum windows to get to the same efficiency level as with the cheaper UPVCs.

Would it not be the GLASS which gets very hot, not the frames. Need double glazing.

It is not the glass. It is the aluminium that gets hot. Mine have a dark brown color and it is extreme. If you want to have better ones you need more expensive ones like others said here already. Often you will end up with expensive imports.

 

But there is an additional problem. In many condos they have cheap old aluminium frames. And you might not be allowed to change the color or the design. Then your options will be very limited. You can install a second window inside then.

Come round to my place then. The glass can get too hot to touch sometimes when it's had direct sunlight on it for a few hours. The white aluminium frames are cool and are a far smaller area of course.
