In the modern day, more than ever, homeowners are becoming conscious of the need to conserve energy around the home. Energy costs are at an all time high and are showing no signs of decreasing in the near future, making double glazing installations an attractive prospect for the budget conscious homeowners.
Energy efficiency can be improved in the majority of homes across the UK. Installing double glazing can dramatically change a home’s energy efficiency and this is something that many homeowners are turning to with figures showing up to 18% of heat is lost through windows in homes with no insulation.
As well as reducing energy bills and CO2 emissions, installing double glazing in the home can rid the home of unwanted side effects like condensation and high noise levels.
Why Choose Double Glazing?
Homeowners with single glazed windows have realised their inability to fully insulate the home. Cold air from outside can transfer into the home extremely easily, reducing the temperature inside and making the home a less comfortable place to relax, especially in the winter months.
Double glazing consists of two panes of glass. Air is trapped between the two layers, acting as an insulator of heat and noise. Homeowners with double glazing installed in their homes have boasted reduced energy bills.
Aside from energy efficiency, double glazing can also reduce condensation and thus damp. What’s more, double glazing windows and doors act as barriers, reducing noise levels from outside which is especially popular amongst homeowners who live on busy roads or noisy neighbourhoods.
Installing double glazing is a worthwhile investment for any homeowner. The aesthetical benefits are visible immediately but homeowners should think about a double glazing installation as a long term investment which will create a warmer, quieter and more cost effective home, ensuring a better quality of life for you and your family.
