The Benefits of Double Glazing Windows
Dithering about installing double glazing? Wondering if you should improve and update your current double-glazed windows? Unsure what the real benefits actually are? Look no further as we have the answers…
#1 Double glazing windows save you money…
… but how much depends on the current energy efficiency rating of your property. For example, if the property has no other form of insulation, you may find that the savings are somewhat negligible. But, with insulation and double-glazed windows and doors, you can save a lot of money off your heating bill.
Save even more money by investing in the best quality and most energy efficient glass your budget will stretch to. A+ rated glass offers even more savings.
#2 They make your home more comfortable
From eliminating draughts to decreasing noise, double glazing windows make your home so much more comfortable.
In fact, even when we replace old double-glazing windows, customers often comment how much quieter their homes and businesses are. This is because the void between the two panes of glass filled with an inert gas not only stop warm air from leaking out, it also stops sounds waves from ‘leaking’ into the property.
Did you know that early examples of double glazing windows could now be inefficient in keeping warm air in and cold air out? If the double glazing of your property is more than 20 years old, it might be an idea to consider replacing them with modern double-glazing windows.
#3 They improve the value of your property
Double glazing windows do add value to your property and they do this in two ways;
Kerb appeal – frankly, anything that makes your property look better improves first impressions and when this the case, buyers when they first glance at your property think ‘what a great looking place!’
Cheaper to heat – for a potential buyer or tenant, when they view a property they want to know how cheap it will be to heat. And that means, the better insulated it is, the cheaper it is. But with modern, energy efficient double-glazing windows installed, it really will hold on to its heat much better.
Double glazing windows will have a significant positive impact on the Energy Efficiency performance (EPC) rating of your property. The better this rating, the more appealing your property will be to buyers and/or tenants.
#4 Double glazing windows (and doors) give your property the stylish edge
Clean and neat, modern double-glazed windows give your property an appealing façade. It looks well maintained and well kept, important for any property owners. Even better, they are easy to keep clean and maintain. There is no need to varnish, stain or paint uPVC framed windows either, just a quick wash down every now and then and they look great!
uPVC double-glazed windows are now available in a range of colours and finishes. No longer is the only choice white or cream!
