If you’re either building or renovating, the benefits of installing double glazed windows really do speak for themselves.
The primary and obvious advantage over single panes of glass is the airtight construction of double glazed windows creates thermal insulation.
This reduces the flow of incoming and outgoing heat and requires less energy to heat up or cool down you home. And this equates to lower energy bills.
You also get a reduction in condensation. The layer of air between the two panes of glass, along with the airtight seal, prevents condensation from building up by blocking moisture in cold weather.
Double glazed windows also improve sound insulation and can cut down on the volume of UV entering a room, which helps protect furnishings.
But you need to ensure a qualified fitter installs them. Condensation will appear between the panes if the seal is broken and since the panes can’t be pulled apart and repaired – the window will need to be replaced; so get a professional to do it right the first time.
