The Benefits of Adding Double Glazed Windows

Double glazed windows can improve the security, energy efficiency, and exterior appearance of any home.

Double Glazing Windows Defined

The process of double glazing windows involves putting two pieces of glass together, leaving a space in between. This space is then filled with either air or gas. The air or gas in between both pieces of glass acts as a buffer or insulator for the home. Last, a drying agent is applied to guarantee no moisture is left inside of the window.

Heat Trap

More than half of the heat loss in homes happens through windows. The process of double glazing windows is one way to insulate your home. With two layer of glass, heat is trapped inside making the windows less susceptible to the flow of heat or cold air into the house. Moreover, this can help to decrease your heating costs.

Double Glazing Windows Increases Security

A large majority of intruders enter homes through windows and doors. Adding double glazed windows can increase home security. These windows are harder to break than single-paned windows and because of their thickness, if they are broken a very loud noise is created.
Many double glazed windows are also equipped with a multipoint locking system. Using steel bolts, these locks are almost impervious to intruders’ attempts to open them from the outside.

Color and Style

There are two styles commonly created when double glazing windows: aluminum, UPVC (short for unplasticised polyvinyl chloride) and hardwood. If insulation is your main concern, then it should be noted that UPVC is a better choice. If looks are most important to you, then aluminum is for you as it is more visually pleasing than UPVC.
Double glazed windows are available in a number of colours as well. You are bound to find a color to round-off your home.
