Double glazing uses two panes of glass separated by a layer of argon gas to keep your home more energy-efficient and reduce sound from outside. The argon gas is a poor heat conductor and therefore keeps warm air from escaping, while the second pane of glass acts as a barrier to noise.
The primary benefit of double glazing is thermal insulation – to retain heat in a room whilst stopping cold air entering from outside to make the room more energy-efficient.
Double glazed windows offer a layer of insulation, which is perfect for keeping the cold outside and the warm air inside. You are, therefore, able to reduce the heating required in your home, reducing your energy bills over time.
Double Glazed windows come with two panes instead of one. You can increase your security even further by opting for laminated or toughened glass. Multi-point locking systems also reduces the chances of break-ins.
Add your personal touch to your windows and doors. There are a wide range of designs, colours and finishes to choose from.
The reason double glazing is able to provide you with better noise insulation than single-glazing is because the noise has to travel between two glass panes and the cavity filled with gas.
Making any improvement on your home will be beneficial in terms of the property price. Homebuyers are looking for properties that they are going to have to do little to no work on when they move in. With energy prices rising year on year, an investment into a double glazing system will be beneficial in the long run.
