Any building that has glass windows is prone to losing heat. This is because glass is a very good conductor of heat, and allows warm air to easily pass through it. With the cost of producing heat and the need to keep it inside a building, most people are looking for energy-efficient glazing. Having double, triple, or higher forms of glazing will not only keep your home warmer and quieter, but will also reduce your energy bills quite substantially. Thus, while double glazed windows are more expensive than traditional windows, the cost will be recouped in the savings you’ll make. In the meantime, you’ll also be living in a more comfortable home.
The benefits of double glazing in your Esher home
There are few people that don’t want to have glass in their homes, and this is not just limited to windows any more. Glass lets in light and sunshine and makes every home feel brighter and more in touch with the outdoors. This is the reason that an increasing number of buildings have glass walls and why glass conservatories are very popular. However, the glass has to be energy efficient; otherwise the temperatures will drop dramatically in winter.
Apart from reduced energy bills, double glazing definitely helps to reduce the carbon footprint, as less energy is required to heat a home or office. The result is that there a fewer cold spots in the home, and the draughts that sometimes occur with a poorly fitted single paned window are eliminated. With all of this in place, your home is far more pleasant to live in.
Reducing noise and condensation
Many people don’t realize that glass also allows sound to travel through it very easily. Double glazing has a dramatic effect on keeping external noise out, and people that live near a busy road or close to an airport have noted a marked difference. Another problem that plagues many householders in colder weather is the build-up of condensation inside a window pane, which is caused by the difference in temperature between the outside and inside. With double glazing, condensation is almost a thing of the past.
