If you have been considering new windows for your home or business, you likely have heard of double glazed windows. If you are like most, you may not be familiar with this term. Double glazing is basically installing a double layer of glass when installing windows and other glass features. Here are some of the most common benefits you can enjoy from your double glazing in Guildford:
Warmer in Winter– the added insulation of the double-glazed windows reduces the exchange of warm air with the colder air outside during the winter months.
Cooler in Summer– the same thing happens in the summer as in the winter, only it is the reduction of cool air leaving the home and the hot air outside that is achieved.
Saves Energy – because there is less air exchange all year round, the home can stay at a comfortable temperature easier, which means less heat and cooling energy is needed.
Reduces Condensation – double glazed windows help reduce condensation which can help reduce instances of mold and mildew, especially in older homes.
Noise Reduction – the two panes of glass help reduce noise pollution from the outside, which is very helpful in a business setting or for homes near noisy roads or airports.
Added Durability– two panes of glass are better than one and provide additional support and durability, which helps keep you and your family safe and secure.
Reduces UV Fading – normal glass lets a lot of UV light into the home and this can cause fading of rugs and furniture that are exposed to direct light day after day.
Adds Value to Homes – any upgrade to your home can increase its sale value, but windows are one of the easiest upgrades you can do that have an amazing return on initial investment.
