Top Reasons To Have Double Glazing In Edinburgh

  • by

The majority of homeowners all over Edinburgh are installing double-glazed windows. And with reasons that are good, since these windows have many benefits.

Double glazing Edinburgh is able to provide these wonderful benefits since they come with two panes glass instead of only one. The panes are separated using either a vacuum or an inert gas and an desiccant that eliminates condensation.

Here are the top six benefits that double glazed windows can provide to a home:

Increased Insulation

Double-glazed windows are made to improve insulation by up to 40%. It’s the insulated seal unit (IGU) comprising two panes of glass, argon gas and various coatings and tints that offer the insulation as well as preventing direct contact between outdoor and indoor air.

Single pane windows allow the transfer of heat or cold air from outdoor and indoor temperatures through glass. The temperature exchange is responsible for around 30% of the cool or hot air that is lost from an office or home.

The higher insulation of double-glazed windows decreases the heat exchange by about 50 50%. That means that during winter, the warm air is kept in the house, while during summer months it remains outside where it’s supposed to be.

Lower Energy Bills

With its insulation properties double-glazed glass lowers energy bills. Double glazed windows cut down on the loss of heat during winter and cooling in summer, they permit air conditioners and central heating units to operate less frequently and maintain the building at a constant temperature.

Heightened Security

Double glazed windows are actually safer than single panes glass. The two glass panes in double glazed windows have internal beading that provides additional security. The windows can also be laminated or reinforced to prevent access..

All of our double-glazed windows are made of uPVC frames. The material is extremely strong and we join all the joints in the window frames to make them more sturdy. Installing double glazed windows is the best way to stop any person who may want to open the window or break it.

Noise Reduction

Are you looking to make your home or office quieter? Double-glazed windows have the ability to filter out twice as much noise pollution than a single pane glass. Double glazed windows can create an environment up to 80% quieter than traditional single-pane windows.

Boost the Value of a Home

Installing double glazed windows increases property value because they boost security, and also make the house more energy-efficient.

Double-glazed windows add value because they are stylish and secure the interior of the property. UV rays are reflected through any window that is exposed to direct sunshine. The harmful rays harm carpets and furniture, as well as age wallpaper and paint. Two glass panes combined with special coatings as the standard for double glazed windows are able to filter out many UV rays and keep interior decorations in good condition for a longer time.

Maintenance without hassle

Double glazed windows have numerous components, and are simple to keep clean. The two panes of glass are well-sealed to keep dust and humidity from getting into places that are difficult to reach. Additionally the strong uPVC frames that surround the glass naturally resist moisture, will not corrode, and never need to be changed out of paint.
