What Is Double Glazing?
A double glazed window consists of two glass panes which are separated by a small later of argon gas. The argon gas, combined with a second layer of glass will act as an insulation layer which will help reduce noise and heat loss, which will keep your home a more comfortable temperature, a lot quieter and will increase security.
What Are The Benefits Of Double Glazing?
Double glazed windows are designed to provide better insulation than traditional glazing. Double glazed windows provide a thicker barrier between your home and the outside and therefore reduce the amount of heat transferred from your home to the old outside air. With double glazing, your home is more likely to retain the heat from the sun during the day. During the warmer months, the windows then keep the heat outside. The double glazed windows ensure that you may now enjoy warm Winters and cool Summers.
With double glazing, you will never have to worry about a noisy home ever again as they provide better insulation for noise compared to single glazed windows. They are particularly helpful if you live in a city or near an airport. With double glazing, your home will become a peaceful environment away from the busy outside world. The double glazing works two ways and keeps your conversations in the home, which means that you will never have to worry about disturbing neighbours.
Double glazed windows are extremely durable and are very hard to break compared to single glazed windows. It is hard to break them from the outside, making it hard for thieves to enter your home. You can add even higher security levels by adding laminated or toughened glass to your windows too which allows you to relax at the knowledge that no one will break into your home with ease.
Reduced Energy Bills
Double glazing allows your home to retain most of the heat it gains from the sun during warm days, this increased insulation means that you will not need to turn on the heating nearly as much during the cold winter months. During the Summer, your home will be kept cold which means any air conditioning will not be used very often, which results in lower energy consumptions, lower bills and a better impact on the environment.
Double glazing makes your home a more comfortable place to live, which is why it could be attractive to potential buyers compared to homes without double glazed windows. If you want to sell your home in the future, you can be assured that you will receive a better deal than you would if you had single glazed windows.
Water droplets can appear because your windows are cooler than the outside air, this causes moisture on the window panes to condense. The temperature of the interior window pane is closer to the air temperature inside and therefore will avoid condensation. It is important to avoid condensation as it could lead to mould and mildew which can lead to health problems.
