Double glazing has been around for quite a while now, and most of us will know the benefits, but a little reminder doesn’t do any harm. So here are nine reasons to have double glazing in your home or business.
- Insulation – Double glazing of course reduces heat loss meaning not only comfort but lower fuel bills. Single glazed windows can allow up to 50 – 70% of the home’s heat to escape.
- Winter Sun – Helps to capture and retain a percentage of natural heat from the sun’s rays in winter.
- Extreme Temperatures – Protects the home from extremes of temperature whether hot or cold, keeping your rooms cooler in summer for instance.
- Energy Efficient – Less energy consumption, due to decreased need for use of heating systems etc, which is good for your pocket and the environment.
- Reduces Damp – Effective double glazing means there is less chance of condensation becoming a problem. This type of moisture production can cause mould and mildew which can damage the home and can even rot timber window frames. There are also health considerations, as damp can lead to respiratory conditions like asthma.
- Fade Protection – Where UV protection is included, double glazing goes a long way towards avoiding UV radiation damage to drapes, carpets, flooring and furniture.
- Noise Reduction – This is a major factor, especially for homes located in busy areas, this type of glazing will reduce noise by up to 60%.
- Difficult to Break – Double glazing is well known to discourage burglars, as breaking in through double glazed windows is more difficult. This means heightened security and safety.
- Enhanced Property Value – Double glazing will increase the resale value of your home or business premises. It is also available these days in a wide range of colours and finishes for an impressive look.
We hasten to add, that all of these points are only relevant where the double glazing is high quality and professionally installed by companies such as Trade Window Services. If you have existing double glazing that may need repairing call our team on 01702 557137.
