In recent decades, you’d struggle to find a UK development that does not utilise double glazing. Double glazing simply involves placing two panes of glass fairly adjacent (usually with a 12mm, 16mm or 20mm gap in between them). The air that becomes trapped in between the two panes offers some insulation. A drying agent is also applied to guarantee that there is no moisture build up inside the sealed unit.
Double glazing is a excellent way to add value to your property at the same time as delivering a variety of benefits. These include insulation and solar gain, lowering heating and electrical power expenses. The principal gain is the pounds and pounds that these windows can save you in the long run. Given they can be fixed into existing apertures, there is no need for intrusive installations which can be time consuming, disruptive to dwellings and high priced.
Double glazing functions by stopping heat from escaping all through the winter months because of the insulated layer of air and the two panes of glass. In the hotter summer months months it does the exact opposite and prevents the heat from exterior from getting in.
Double glazed windows can be produced from a range of diverse frames like aluminium, UPVC or hardwood and in a range of diverse colours. They can be very aesthetically pleasing and give any home a clean lease of life. An additional big advantage is the safety and security that double glazing supplies. Double glazed windows are much tougher to penetrate.
By retaining more of your warmth inside, you also help save capital you would have had to spend on gas or electrical power to maintain your property at a acceptable temperature. Double glazing is much more appealing to house hunters, so something prospective buyers will have on their wish list. Buyers may look to knock the cost of double glazing off the purchase price, plus some more to compensate them for having to install thermally efficient replacement double glazing themselves.
The thicker body of most double glazed frames permits room for security features like shoot bolts and other locking mechanisms, which single glazed windows may possibly not have area for. Additionally, new double glazed windows are typically made from aluminium or reinforced UPVC plastic that is incredibly difficult for even the most established burglar to break in through.
Since nearly 25% of your heat is lost by your windows, perfectly-built and effectively-fitted double glazing can reduce your heating costs by as much as 50% depending on the amount of windows in your property.
Finally, double glazed windows are tough. So if you have children who like to play football or cricket in the back garden, any wayward balls are significantly less likely to be the cause of a large repair bill, particularly if the products you purchase have toughened safety glass.
