What is double-glazing?
Double-glazing consists of two panels of glass between the outer and inner frame with a space between, usually between 0.63 or 0.75 inches, the two panels are designed to reduce loss of heat and noise. We recently published an article: How to choose the right double glazing for your windows which may answer any questions/queries you have regarding double glazing.
Energy cost savings
The airtight structure of double-glazing creates thermal insulation. Double-glazing reduces the flow of incoming and outgoing heat, as a result less energy is used to heat or cool the area, which will lower your energy bills
Reduces damage to furnishings
A double glazed window reduces the amount of sun damage to your furnishings by blocking the amount of UV rays entering the room.
Condensation can turn into frost when it hits a warm surface making the room feel cold making you adjust the heat but with double-glazing the air between the two panes of glass will stop this condensation by blocking moisture in cold weather. The prevention of condensation also reduces the damp within the home
Increases your home safety
Because the glass is thicker the glass is harder to break or get into which increases the safety of your home by creating a larger gap from the outside environment
Less noise pollution
Because the window is thicker it clocks outside noise from coming into your home by creating a barrier from the outside
Increases the resale of your home
The installation creates a warmer, quieter environment and this is a good selling point when putting your house on the market
