Energy efficiency can reduce household bills and increase your house value. Double glazed windows top energy efficient solutions chosen by homeowners, because they keep your home warmer and use less energy in doing so. But how is this type of window more efficient than a single pane window? Double glazing units are sandwiched together with an air or gas gap in between. It works in the following way:
- Prevents heat loss through the window
- Stops draughts through the window and the frame
- Works as an insulator in the same way as cavity wall insulation
- Reduce heat loss
This is the biggest benefit of double glazing. Cold air can enter the home through gaps under doors, single glazed windows, lofts and down chimneys. Double glazing may not be able to prevent all the cold air from entering into the room, but it can significantly reduce it.
- Better insulation
Unwanted outside noise can be a nuisance. However, double glazing products provide better insulation when compared to single glazing units by blocking noise. When sound waves hit a surface, some bounce off, some are absorbed, and some pass through materials. The empty space between the panes provides a buffer which in simple terms – makes your house quieter.
- Increased security
Single glazing isn’t as effective as double glazing when it comes to home security. The presence of two panes of glass set in the same frame provide an extra layer of security to a property.
- Reduce condensation build-up
Reducing moisture inside a property can help prevent problems like mould and damp.
Popular types of Double Glazing
- Tilt and turn types
These are one of the most popular types of double glazing. These window units have a dual hinge system, so they can be tilted inwards from the top or by using the hinge system, they can open outwards. There are really safe for children in a home.
- Casement Windows
Casement windows are a popular form of window furnishing, especially for those who want to capture the essence of old style charm. They are ideal for places where you want beautiful uninterrupted views of the outdoors.
Casement windows are simple and less expensive when compared to other systems. They are designed to allow as much natural light as possible into the property and can open in a variety of ways, e.g. hinges down one side, hinges along the top etc.
- Vertical Sliding
If you own an older property and want something more traditional, then vertical sliding windows could be the ideal choice for you. They have the appearance of a sash window and work in a similar way.
How long does double glazing last?
Double glazing can last for about 20 years, however, 35 years is not uncommon depending on the quality of the materials and installation.
Choosing a double-glazed window
Choosing replacement windows for a property can be a complicated process because there are several factors you need to consider. You need to think about the type of glass, window frame material and whether these windows are suitable for property.
