It’s no secret that energy costs can eat away at your household budget. High energy usage also puts unnecessary pressure on the environment, something we are all trying to stop.

A lot of homeowners are surprised to see moisture build up on their glass after having their windows double glazed. After all, you don’t expect to have to worry about your windows after investing money into them.

 

Double glazing is a practical investment. It will help to lower energy bills (and your carbon footprint), increase your property’s value, and transform your home into a more comfortable and quieter place to live, whilst also enhancing your indoor air quality and safety.

 

Double glazing doesn’t last forever. Which means, depending on when your double glazed windows were put in and the quality of the installation, you may have one or more faulty windows without realising it.

 

The whole idea behind getting double glazed windows is to better insulate your home with a glass unit that is thicker and performs better than a single glazed window.

 

Double glazing your timber windows is one of the most effective steps you can take to insulate your home and enjoy all the benefits that come with high-performance windows.

 

One of the most common questions we get asked is how much difference does double glazing make? The simple truth is that double glazing makes a huge difference to the comfort of your home whether it be in hot or cold climates.

 

For keeping heat in during the winter and unwanted heat out in the summer, pretty much the biggest step you can take is to double glaze your windows. Are you wondering exactly how do double glazed windows work?

 

With double glazing, two panels of glass are used rather than only one to create an insulated glass unit, or IGU. The two panels are separated by a small space, between 6mm to 18mm, which can be filled with an insulating gas such as argon.
