With winter looming and bound to arrive before we know it, what better time to make sure that your home is fully equipped and prepared to cope with the cold weather? There are all sorts of things you can do to improve your heating and insulation at home, however something that people don’t always consider as a solution for this, is double glazing. Here at Steve Bebb Building Services we see first hand the positive impact double glazed windows can have on a home.
The cold winter weather can provide challenges when it comes to keeping your house warm. Furthermore, this directly impacts your heating and energy bills, which spike during the colder months. However, with double glazing you can actually reduce the amount you spend on your energy bills, which makes it a cost efficient investment and something that is going to benefit you long term.
So, we thought we would share with you a few reasons why double glazing can enhance your home this winter…
The biggest perk to having double glazed windows, particularly during winter, is that it significantly improves the insulation within your home. Double glazing is like having two layers, meaning that you have double the thickness in the glass. As a result of this, heat takes a lot longer to escape, meaning your home will essentially be kept heated for twice as long.
Furthermore, due to the thickness of the glass, it also prevents the cold air from outside being able to enter into the room. This ultimately results in far better insulation within your home, keeping all rooms warmer, for a longer period of time.
Another great thing about double glazed windows, is that they actually improve the overall security of your home. Due to the extra thickness of the glass, this makes it a lot harder for people to break through the windows and into your home. As double glazing is tougher to break, it reduces the chances of criminal activity, which will also help to put your mind at ease. Furthermore, double glazed windows also come with a multi-point locking system for extra security.
Another way that double glazing can enhance your home is through noise cancellation. Again, due to the added thickness of the glass, this helps to block out all noise from outside of your house, particularly more so than single glazed windows would. This means that you will encounter less disturbances and be able to enjoy a little more peace and quiet!
As a result of the improved insulation from double glazing, you will see a decrease in your heating and energy bills. Having your home stay heated for longer means that you will be required to use your central heating less. Therefore, you will save money on your energy bills.
Having double glazed windows in your home makes it more energy efficient. The improved insulation means that you won’t be using your central heating as much because the room is already heated and is able to stay warmer for a longer period of time. Along with saving money on your energy bills, this makes your home perform more efficiently overall.
