The word ‘Double Glazing’ is used very loosely by some people. They may not even be aware of the benefits it brings. But if you’re considering installing new windows, you should know a few facts about this energy-efficient feature.

The most obvious benefit is a decreased heating bill. A typical home loses 10% of its heat through its windows. By using double glazing, you can reduce the amount of heat lost. However, it’s not just your heating bill that will be affected. You’ll also get better insulation and less condensation. A thermal image can be helpful in visualising how much a window can improve your home’s energy efficiency.

The other benefit is that it increases the value of your property. A home with double-glazed windows has a higher resale value and fewer energy bills. Those who opt for energy-efficient glazing can expect to see an average saving of PS44 a year on their gas and electricity bills. Purchasing a replacement double-glazed unit is cheaper than installing new windows.

Another benefit is the reduction of noise pollution. Single-pane windows provided little protection against noise from outside. With the emergence of energy-efficient glazing, you can now have a quieter and more comfortable home. In addition, it’s also a great way to boost curb appeal.

Some people worry about the look of their new windows. However, a high-quality product should match the performance it promises. If you’re looking for new windows, check out double-glazed units from CN Glass, which offer a ten-year warranty.

In a nutshell, double-glazing is simply the process of making two panes of glass with a small air gap in between. This small gap keeps the inside of the window warm and prevents hot and cold air from circulating freely. Normally, the air gap is filled with gas, such as argon or Xenon. The insulating properties of these gases can keep the inside of your home warmer, so you don’t have to use an expensive air conditioning system to cool it down.

Another benefit of double-glazing is that it can lower your carbon footprint. A single-pane window can release a lot of heat into the air, which contributes to pollution. With double-glazed windows, the heat is better insulated and therefore, you can save money on your heating bill. It’s worth noting that this energy-efficient feature is especially beneficial for those living in a colder climate.

Finally, a high-quality product should offer an energy rating that is better than your standard single-glazed window. The British Fenestration Rating Council (BRE) – a national independent energy rating body – has a rating system that is similar to the one you’d find on an appliance. It lists the ‘best’ windows as A++ and the ‘worst’ as E. If you’re considering installing new windows, make sure you compare the ratings of different companies. It’s worth checking out the reviews from companies like Anglian, Crystal Windows and Doors, and Everest.

Overall, double-glazing is a worthwhile investment. Not only does it increase the value of your home, but it also improves the performance of your windows and adds to your home’s security.
