Specifically designed to reduce heat loss from homes and buildings, double glazing also performs many other benefits, including: Warmer in winter: Double glazing is the ideal form of insulation, with up to 50-70% of home heat lost through single-glazed windows. Double glazing also helps capture and store a higher percentage of the natural heat from the winter sun. Cooler in summer: Double glazing insulates your home against extremes of temperature, trapping some of the summer sun;s rays and minimising the heat which burns through your windows on hot, sunny days. Reduces energy usage: Because there’s less need for heating systems you’ll be reducing energy consumption, which saves on your power bills and helps the environment.
Reduces condensation: Condensation can be a serious problem, particularly in older homes, as it causes mould and mildew, and in some cases it will also rot timber window frames and damage your family’s health. Double glazing works to reduce excess moisture on your window panes. Reduces noise: Double gazing reduces noise for a calmer, quieter home. High performance double glazing can reduce outside noise by up to 60%, making it a great investment if you live by a busy road or beneath a flight path.

With double glazing, an older home can be just as desirable to the purchaser who wants to ensure that the house they buy is efficiently insulated.
