When it comes to energy efficient installation double-glazing is the new trend. It’s the new and improved product in comparison the standard windows that are found in most homes and offices. They provide benefits that just can’t be found with the traditional single pane.
With modern engineering the creation of a better window product is available to all of us. Of course we don’t mind because the majority of electric bills is boiled down to heat energy lost through the windows. With double-glazing you get better insulation and so a warmer environment and ultimately cheaper heating bills.
Traditional windows are made up of a single pane of glass. As goes by the popular “two is better than one” double-glazing is comprised of a second pane of glass in addition two the first pane. Furthermore between the two panes of glass there is a gap, which creates a pocket of air.
This pocket of air is a lot more important than it sounds. Air is known as one of the best insulation and this pocket of trapped air therefore adds extra insulation to your window. If there is condensation on your window then this is an indication that your insulation won’t be working correctly.
Finally as the name suggests the clear Perspex from Simply Plastics pane is glazed. This glazing again is a third layer of protection. It produces a hard outer layer that locks in heat even more. With all these factors considered your double glazed windows provide greater shelter from the cold air outside and helps to lock in heat. This in turn will lessen your heating bills considerably as you do not have to make up for heat loss.
An additional benefit of having double-glazing is not just that it can save you money, which let’s face it we can all use, but it is also better for the environment. This is because you are using less energy and therefore using fewer raw materials that are burned to create said energy.
