Invest in Double Glazing
Double glazing is now a required feature of newly built homes and for good reason, but some older homes may not have double-glazed windows installed. Designed to keep the cold air out and the warm air in, double-glazed windows are worth the investment. Here in this blog are all the reasons why you should invest in double glazing.
Help Regulate Temperature
The various layers of glass stops heat from transferring from one side to the other, meaning that you can set your home at a desired temperature and the interior layer of glass will keep your home at your set temperature. Whether you need to keep heat in or out, the argon gas layer in-between the layers of glass does a great job to trap any heat that does break through the glass panelling.
Saving Energy Costs
Despite the initial cost of double-glazed windows, their structure will not only help you regulate temperature, but also help you save money throughout the year. Similar to how the argon gas helps to regulate temperature, the exterior layer of glass helps to block outside air out and the interior layer stops heat in your home from escaping. This design allows you to control temperature more easily and therefore helps save money on air conditioning and heating bills.
The thickness of the double glazing means that you have a sturdier frame and therefore a higher security. Double-glazed windows are also heavier and thicker than regular windows, meaning they can withstand more force. These windows are also supplied with extra rubber to increase the strength of the edges’ sealant.
Less condensation & longer lasting
As double-glazed windows are built to have an airtight seal, they let in less moisture, therefore preventing a build up of condensation. This feature also gives these windows a longer life, as less condensation means a reduction in mould. Because of this, if these windows are well maintained, double glazing can last up to 30 years.
Having multiple layers of glass means that more exterior noise can be blocked out from your home. Just like the heat waves, the gas filled layer in-between glass layers defuses sound waves, creating a barrier for the unwanted noise. If you’re living on a busy road or next to a school, double glazing can help to keep your home as quiet as possible at all times.
Furthermore, as double-glazed windows are installed with uPVC frames, they are fully customisable. There are almost no negatives to having double-glazed windows installed in your home.
