Keep the heat in
Glazed windows are a great option for increasing the energy efficiency of your home. The layering of two or three glass panes – depending on whether you choose double or triple glazing – separated by a cavity, helps to insulate your home. This can result in lowering your heating bill compared to single glazed windows, as the heat is better kept in your house. The layering of glass also helps to prevent draughts - perfect for keeping your home cosy.
The glass in these windows can also work to reflect heat. This means that instead of the heat inside your home escaping through the glass, the window can not only trap, but reflect warmth back inside - even better for your energy bills!
Reduce noise pollution
The extra layer of glass in glazed windows is also excellent for protecting your home from unwanted noise pollution. For example, if you live near a busy road, glazed windows will go some way to providing peace and quiet inside, from the hustle and bustle outside.
Increase your home's security
Double or triple glazed windows help improve the security of your home when compared to windows with a single pane of glass. The extra strength that comes with the extra panes and cavities makes them much harder to break through, helping to make your home more secure.
Boost your sale potential
Have you considered the benefit a new set of windows could have for your house? If you're planning on selling your property, now or in the near future, double or triple glazed windows can give your home's appearance a boost. As well as improving your curb appeal, the added benefit these types of windows bring can be a big selling point to potential buyers, due to the positive impact they have on energy bills when compared to single glazed windows.
Particularly if you live in a house where upgrading your windows isn't possible or poses great difficulty, secondary double glazing is a great option. Not only will it bring all the benefits of keeping your home warmer and reducing unwanted noise, they offer the perfect opportunity to modernise your home.
