Double glazed windows are the choice to make if you want beautiful windows that will keep you comfortable and cosy in both summer and winter.
Double glazed windows are windows that are made up of two panes of glass within the same window frame. Between the two panes of glass is a gap that can be anywhere from 6mm to 20mm wide. The gap is filled with standard air or it can be filled with a special gas such as argon. The window frame that houses the double glazing is made from timber, aluminium or PVC.
Double glazed windows are very well insulated and that makes it hard for heat to travel through them. Double glazed windows also tend to be more effective by using specialized low-e and high-performance glass. What this means for you is that heat is less likely to get into your home in summer, and the cold is less likely to get into your home in winter. You won’t have to use your air conditioning or heating as much and this saves you big money on your bills and reduces greenhouse gas emissions. Double Glazing are excellent sound insulators as well, as sound finds it hard to get through the two panes of glass. You’ll hear much less outside noise, like traffic and highway noise.
