With the rising cost of energy bills, it’s essential to understand all the best ways to save money, and one of the most crucial ways to save every month is by finding ways to save on your bills. One of the easiest methods is to invest in new double glazed windows and doors by Infil Double Glazing. You have likely heard of double and triple glazing and its ability to reduce heating costs, but you may not understand how! Here at Infil Double Glazing, we’ve compiled this comprehensive guide to help you understand the benefits of double glazing and how it can reduce heat loss.
The efficiency of double glazing
Most properties these days have windows and doors with double glazing installed. Compared to single glazed panes, double glazing can retain much more heat, keeping the property at a more comfortable temperature. But how does double glazing achieve this heat retention?
Double glazing is comprised of two panes of glass that sit within the frame of a window, extremely close together. The small pocket of air between the two panes works as an excellent insulation barrier that traps heat as it passes through the first pane of glass. As the heat becomes trapped, it stays within the property and continues to warm it instead of escaping and being wasted outside.
Triple glazing works in the exact same way, except it includes three panes of glass within the frame and two pockets of air. This additional pocket further increases the window’s ability to trap heat before it can radiate through the glass. This glazing style is highly effective; however, it also creates a much heavier window, so it’s always important to consider the size and location of the window or door to find the most suitable glazing style.
Double glazing also adds structural integrity and durability to your glass panes, making for an overall stronger product. After all, it is much harder to break two or three layers of glass compared to one. Infil Double Glazing creates its patio, bifold, and French doors using toughened double glazing, so our customers can have total peace of mind.
Sound resistant double glazing
Double glazing also has the side benefit of also muffling unwanted noises from outside. Like with heat, sound can get trapped between the panes of glass, muffling it as it tries to pass through. This can lead to increased privacy, as your own sounds can stay within the home instead of being hearable by the rest of the neighbourhood. Additionally, you can rest easily at night without the disturbing noises of traffic or animals.
For even more privacy, check out our range of windows that can come with a variety of obscured glass-style options. Perfect for bathrooms, conservatories, or even bedrooms!
Where can double glazing be installed?
Any window, door, or conservatory that has glass panes can have its glass replaced with double glazing versions. If you replace all the single glazed panes within your home with our A-rated double glazing, you could save a large amount of money on your energy bills month after month, potentially making your new glazing pay for itself!
Additionally, the double glazing can reduce your reliance on central heating to keep your home warm, which can reduce your energy consumption. With a reduced consumption level, you can lower your carbon footprint, creating a more sustainable and eco-friendly home.
