Many property owners throughout Edinburgh are installing double glazed windows and for good reason, because these windows have many benefits.
Double glazed windows are able to provide these wonderful benefits since they feature two panes glass instead of only one. These panes are separated by the use of a gas or vacuum and a desiccant which eliminates condensation.
Here are the most important 6 advantages that double-glazed windows can bring to any home:
Double-glazed windows are made to increase insulation up to 40 percent. It’s the insulated seal unit (IGU) composed of two glass panes together with argon gas as well as a variety of tints and coatings that provide the insulation and prevent direct contact between outdoor and indoor air.
Single pane windows are able to allow the transmission of heat or cold air from both outdoor and indoor outside air via the window. The temperature exchange is responsible for around 30% of all the hot or cool air that escapes from the business or home.
The added insulation of double-glazed windows can reduce heat exchange by at least 50 percent. This means that in winter the warm air stays inside and during the summer, it is outside exactly the place it’s supposed to be.
Lower Energy Bills
Because of its ability to insulate double-glazed glass reduces energy costs. As double glazed windows reduce their loss of heat during winter, and cooler temperatures in summer, they permit air conditioners and central heating units to use less energy and still maintain the building’s temperature.
Double glazed windows are actually more secure than single panes glass. The two glass panes in double-glazed windows feature internal beading to provide additional security. They can also be strengthened or laminated to prevent access..
All of our double-glazed windows are housed in uPVC frames. It is a natural material that is strong, and we bond all the joints inside the window frame to help make it more sturdy. Double glazing windows are the best way to stop anyone who might want to open a window or even break it.
Are you interested in making your house or office a quieter place? Double glazed windows can be used to block two times as much noise as a single pane of glass. This means that double glazed windows can make an environment up to 80% quieter than the older single-pane style windows.
Improve the Value of a Home
Double glazing windows increase property value because they boost security, and also make the house more energy-efficient.
Double glazing Edinburgh also provide value as they are attractive and protect the interior of the property. UV rays are reflected through every window that gets direct sunshine. They can harm furniture and fade carpets, as well as age paint and wallpaper. Two glass panes coupled with special coatings typical in double-glazed windows are able to block out many UV rays and help keep interior decor beautiful for a longer time.
Maintenance that is hassle-free
Double glazed windows have multiple components, but they are easy to keep clean. The two glass panes are sealed well to prevent dust and humidity from moving into hard to reach places. Along with this the strong uPVC frames that surround the glass are able to withstand humidity, never corrode and will never require repainted.
