The benefits of double glazing
Here at Westfarm Windows, we are proud to offer a dedicated double glazing service to our customers.We believe that any property can benefit from double glazing and uPVC windows, which is why they have become a popular addition to a variety of homes.
But what are these benefits and how can they make a difference to you?
One of the main benefits of double glazing is that it helps to control temperatures within your home. During the winter, it provides insulation that stops around 50% of the warm air in your home from escaping, a handy thing in Glasgow where winter months are around zero-5 degrees. It is also designed to trap the rays from the sun too. This is great in the winter for generating heat, and the summer for minimising the amount of heat that then makes its way into your home.
Because they prevent warm air from escaping, double glazing is known to reduce the energy usage, and in turn reduce the amount that you have to pay out in energy bills. It also has a lower impact on the environment too.
Another great benefit is that double glazing reduces condensation, which is one of the biggest causes of mould and mildew. A common issue that can cause problems for your property and for your health.
Finally, double glazed windows also reduce noise from the outside world. This particularly useful if you live in an area that receives high traffic or that has a greater level of noise then which you are comfortable with.
