How to save money on double glazing or new uPVC doors

Once sealed, the double glazed windows become airtight. The gap between the glasses traps heat, providing insulation for your home. Other benefits of double glazed windows include:

  • By reducing the flow of outgoing and incoming heat, double glazed windows help lower your energy bills.
  • Double glazed windows are tougher to break, ensuring safety.
  • By reducing the amount of heat and sun entering a room, double glazed windows reduce damage to furniture, carpets, and paintings.
  • Double glazed windows provide acoustic insulation, reducing traffic, neighbourhood, and other external noises.
  • Since double glazed windows trap heat, they are not as cold as single glazed windows. Therefore, they reduce the risk of condensation, which occurs when moist air from inside your house comes into contact with a cold surface. Condensation can cause the growth of mold and mildew in your home.
  • By improving energy efficiency, double glazed windows help you reduce your carbon footprint.
  • Double glazed windows help increase the overall value of your home.
