From style and security to noise reduction and thermal efficiency, there are plenty of reasons to invest in thermal double-glazed windows. People talk about double glazing being a good investment for a home, but what exactly does it offer?
What exactly is double glazing?
Double-glazed windows are made up of two layers of glass with a layer of gas sealed in the gap between them. This structure provides double the insulation of single-glazed windows. Once sealed, these windows are airtight and provide great performance all year round.
Save money with thermal insulation.
To save money on your energy bills, investing in windows from Thermal Double Glazing to replace your single glazing is a sensible solution. The airtight seal of double glazing offers many advantages. Heat is unable to flow in or out, meaning it’s easier to keep your home warm and cosy.
Benefit from enhanced security.
With a second pane of glass, double-glazed windows are harder to break and therefore more secure than single-glazed windows. Furthermore, when you replace your old windows with new double-glazed windows, you’ll most likely benefit from advanced locking mechanisms which add an extra layer of protection to your home.
Reduce the condensation in your home.
Condensation is a common problem with windows everywhere. This is a result of water vapour in the air building up on surfaces that are at a lower temperature. A build-up of condensation can result in water droplets settling on the glass, which can further result in dampness and mould in your home. This looks unpleasant but it can damage your window frames and cause health problems too. Double-glazed windows can reduce condensation because of the airtight seal between the two panes of glass. This prevents moisture from building up, and mould developing. Condensation can actually make a room feel colder too, so thermal double glazing will make your home feel cosier and more comfortable.
