Double glazed windows are much more efficient than single glazed windows. In fact, they can reduce energy bills by up to 50%! They’re also more secure, as they’re more difficult for burglars to break into.
They also last longer than single-glazed units, which means that you don’t have to worry about replacing them for a number of years to come.
Double glazing consists of two layers of glass separated by an insulating material such as spacer bars (which can include argon gas) and plastic spacers. The space between the panes creates an air gap that prevents heat from escaping through the glass when it’s cold outside, while allowing it to enter during warmer weather by using convection currents. This helps keep your home warm during colder months and cooler during warmer months without having to use any additional heating or cooling systems.
Double glazing windows are one of the best ways to improve the look and efficiency of your home, as well as making it more secure. The benefits of double glazing windows over single glazing include:
Improved sound insulation – double glazing will keep out unwanted noise in the same way that it keeps in warmth and keeps out cold air. This makes double glazing a good option for homes with noisy neighbours or noisy streets, as well as those who work from home and need the peace and quiet.
Reduced condensation – condensation on single panes of glass is a big problem in many homes, especially older properties that were built before modern insulation techniques were developed. Double glazing windows reduce this problem by keeping warm air inside and preventing moisture from entering through cracks between panes.
Improved energy efficiency – double-glazed windows reduce heat loss through glass by around 20% compared with standard single-glazed windows, which means less money spent on heating bills throughout winter months.
Single glazing is the most common type of window available today. This kind of window is made up of one pane of glass. The glass can be either single or double strength. Single glazing has a lower thermal performance than double glazing and therefore loses more heat through the window.
Double glazing will help to reduce your heating costs as it reduces heat loss through your windows. It can also save you money on your energy bills. Double glazing is made up of two panes of glass separated by a small gap filled with air or gas, which is known as an insulating cavity (known as argon). This insulation cavity helps to reduce heat loss through the window by up to 50%. For example, if you have single glazed windows in your home, you could expect to pay £100 per year on your energy bills. However, if you replace them with double glazed windows then this could reduce by around £50 per year depending on how well insulated your property already is.
