If there is one home improvement that can make a real difference to the look and feel of your home it is double glazing. It comes in a variety of designs and styles and not only looks good, but can also help cut your energy bills as well as improve the comfort of your home.
Read on for a guide to some of the benefits offered by double glazed windows:
Around a quarter of the energy that is generated in the home is lost through its windows and doors. If you want to make your home more comfortable and save on your energy bills it makes sense to replace your windows with something more efficient.
In fact, just upgrading single glazed windows to B-rated energy efficient double glazed windows could save the average homeowner around £165 a year on fuel bills.
What’s more, fitting double glazing can actually make your home feel more comfortable as they can cut down on draughts and condensation build-up.
One thing that is incredibly important for homeowners is their security, and double glazed windows will help provide additional protection from the outside. Because single glazed windows only have one pain of glass they are quite easy to break into. However, with double glazed units, not only do they come fitted with toughened glass making them harder to break, they also come with a number of excellent security measures. They have hinge bolts fitted as standard so whatever happens the hinge side of the window will be just as secure as the lock side. What’s more, the locks themselves are of the highest standard with anti-snap cylinders and guards to stop thieves. The windows themselves are internally beaded, so you can sleep in peace knowing that you have put these preventative measures in place.
Everyone wants their home to be a sanctuary where they can shut out the outside world, so the last thing people want is noise coming into their house. However, because double glazed units have a gap of air between the two panes of glass not only does this make them more energy efficient, it can also help reduce the amount of noise entering your home. This means that when you return home, thanks to your new double glazed windows, you can shut out the outside world and spend time in a peaceful environment.
Another great benefit of double glazed windows is the fact that they are virtually maintenance free. Unlike wooden window frames there is no need to treat them regularly or deal with things like rot. Instead, apart the odd clean now and again your windows will look good-as-new for years to come. This means that you won’t need to spend money replacing your windows every few years or spend cash trying to keep them looking good.
