Reduce Your Energy Bills
In every home, one of the main ways the heat escapes from our home is through the windows, how much heat is lost will depend heavily on the type of window. Traditional wooden windows might look good, but they are also very drafty, they often don’t seal properly when they are shut and they allow a lot of heat to escape. Whereas uPVC windows are much better at keeping that heat in, this means that don’t have to use as much energy to heat your home, which will as a result, save you money on your energy bills.
According to energysavingtrust.org, the amount you could save from replacing your single glazed windows with double glazed ones could be as much as £160 each year. The value of this saving varies depending on the property type you have (detached, semi-detached, mid-terrace, bungalow, flat) and the energy rating of your property.
Double glazed windows work by creating an insulating barrier to keep heat in. This barrier is formed by using two sheets of glass with a space of approximately 16mm between the panes, this is often filled with gas and it is this that causes an insulating barrier.
Triple glazing is similar however is uses three panes of glass, though this does not necessarily make it more energy efficient. If energy efficiency is important to you then when you are looking at purchasing new windows, be sure to take a look at their BFRC rating.Call
Double glazing could reduce your energy bills, but this isn’t the only advantage. Other benefits to installing double glazing include:
- With better insulation your home will have fewer cold spots and drafts, which will in turn make your house more comfortable to live in, especially in those winter months.
- Double glazing is much more effective at preventing the noise pollution of the outside world from penetrating into your home, meaning your house should be quieter and you will be less impacted by whatever noise is going on outside.
- More energy efficient, double glazing will give your home a smaller carbon footprint, helping the environment as well as your pocket
- Double glazing is long lasting, it should easily last for a minimum of twenty years and needs little on-going maintenance except for a clean every so often.
