Double glazing has become a mainstay of British households over the past few decades but there are still many homes putting up with inefficient single glazing that is seeing their heating leaking out of their home and going to waste – leading to higher energy bills. By swapping single glazing for double glazing – you could see a significant change in the price of your energy bills – which is a blessing when they continue to rise year after year.
If you swapped all the single glazed windows in a three bedroom semi-detached house for A rated double glazing – you could save between up to £75 a year on your heating bill.
As well as a more energy efficient home and reduced heating bills – your home will also benefit from heat retention, noise reduction, increased security and reduced condensation.
So often, many homes are made to feel colder because of draughts that allow cold air to creep in – meaning that despite turning the thermostat up to max, you’re still left shivering. With our expertly sealed and installed glazing, this becomes a thing of the past and you have windows that keep in the heat and keep out the draughts.
These two layers of toughened glass are separated by a layer of argon gas that creates an extra barrier against the cold. This air gap is too small to allow the air to circulate. This prevents heat transfer by convection as the trapped air is a poor conductor and thus reduces the amount of heat loss through the window.
This also results in noise reduction which provides a much more relaxing and quieter home – ideal if you live by a busy road or neighbourhood. Soon you’ll be enjoying a much better night’s sleep as well as a warmer home.
You can enjoy double glazing in your windows, doors and conservatories and frames by a range of materials such as aluminium, hardwood, UPVC, Conservation and Composite. You’ll instantly notice the difference in your home as you enjoy comfort all year round.
Double glazing should last at least twenty years and in this time you could benefit from a total saving of £1,500. The savings you make from your double glazing, pay for the cost in the long run.
