Double glazing has been around for many years and has proved to be an excellent alternative to single glazed units for a number of reasons some of which we mention later.
Uses of double glazing
Double glazing is typically used in the manufacture of uPVC windows and doors but is also used for aluminium and wooden windows and doors.
When a new property is built these days the windows must now be installed with a minimum of double glazed units but this was not always the case. Many years ago, homes and businesses had windows and exterior glazed doors manufactured that incorporated single glazed units. So, if you live in a property that has single glazing then you may wish to consider finding out how much it would cost to replace the likes of your windows, doors and conservatory glazing.
Benefits of double glazing
There are several double glazing benefits such as: -
- Adds value to your home.
- Makes your home easier to sell.
- Your property is more secure.
- Reduces energy bills thus saves you money.
- Your residence is warmer.
- It is quieter in the home as it lowers noise levels from outside.
Double glazing comes in a range of energy efficiency ratings so it is important that you choose one that has a high rating. You should also make sure that the double glazing meets or exceeds the British Security Standard. Triple glazed windows are reportedly even more energy efficient.
