Double Glazing

Double glazing has many benefits, and it’s worth considering having it installed in your home if you have the money. Let’s take a look at the reasons why you should install double glazing in your home, and why it’s an investment worth doing in the long term. 

It Can Save You Money

We all want to save money, don’t we? After the initial cost of installing double glazing, it can actually save you money in the long term due to its energy efficiency. It keeps cold air out and warm air in and keeps your house warm in winter reducing your heating bills.

It Is Eco-Friendly

As it reduces your consumption of energy to heat your home, double glazing is eco-friendly. It is said that double glazed windows reduce carbon dioxide emission to up to 680kgs per year. We all want to reduce energy consumed and with the knock-on effect of lower energy bills, it’s obviously worth considering. 

It Reduces Condensation

Condensation can be a big problem in certain homes, leading to mould on the walls which can cause damage to your health. It can also rot wooden window frames, reducing the value of your home. Double glazing reduces condensation and works to keep your home better insulated.

It Can Improve Your Sound Quality

If you live in a busy street or in a noisy neighbourhood or your sleep is being disturbed by street noise, then this can really get you down. If so double glazing will help by reducing outside noise, improving the sounds quality in your home.

It Can Make Your Home More Secure

Having double glazing installed can really improve the security in your home. It can be difficult to force an entry due to the double panes of glass and the vacuum between, making the glass very tough. It’s not easy by simply forcing entry using a hammer. This increased security makes a home with double glazing installed less of a risk of theft and that can only be a good thing.

It Is Simple To Maintain

Double glazing is easy to maintain and can last a very long time. Have your windows cleaned once a month and inspect the locks and hinges by unlocking and opening each window. A little lubrication with a product like WD-40 can help any stiffness in the locks and hinges.

It Is Very Durable

Double glazing is very durable, whilst single pane glass is the opposite and easily damaged. Most double glazing these days comes with a minimum 10-year guarantee too.

 It Can Increase Your Property’s Value

Having double glazing installed can increase your property’s value making your home more salable. This can lead to a quicker sale and an increased value.  It is often said that it can increase the value of your home by up to 10%, so if you are investing in your property having double glazing installed is a smart move.

As you can see there are many benefits of having double glazing installed. Let me know, have you installed double glazing? if not, would you consider investing in it?
