About Double Glazing
Double glazing is found on windows and doors with glass. Double glazed windows feature two sheets of glass. Between these sheets is a gap that creates an insulating barrier. This barrier keeps heat in and prevents it from escaping the home. Double glazed windows have a British Fenestration Rating Council (BFRC) rating that indicates the level of efficiency. Ratings are based on how well the glazing stops heat from escaping, as well as how much air leaks and the amount of sunlight traveling through the glass. “A” rated windows provide the best possible energy efficiency.
Energy Savings with Double Glazed Windows
According to the Energy Saving Trust, homeowners can save up to £175 per year on their energy bills. The exact savings depend on the size of the property and the energy rating for the double glazed windows. With double glazing, smaller energy bills and increased efficiency are complemented by a smaller carbon footprint. By reducing the amount of energy they use, homeowners that choose eco-friendly glazing are contributing to more sustainable building practices and promoting a better environment.
Why Choose Double Glazed Windows
Besides long-term savings on energy bills and reducing carbon footprints, there is a range of benefits when homeowners choose to install energy efficient windows. Since heat loss is reduced, there are fewer draughts and cold spots in the property. That means a more comfortable home to enjoy. Double glazing also offers good insulation, keeping outside noises out and providing homeowners with a quieter home.
