The Benefits of Upgrading to Double Glazed Windows

17 Jan 2023

With the rising cost of living in the UK, many people will look at other ways to help cut back on spending. Have you considered upgrading your windows? Replacing your current windows with double glazed windows could be the most important decision you can make!

As a leading supplier of double glazed windows, C&W Direct knows all the benefits of investing in quality glazed windows.

What is Double Glazing?

Single-pane windows only have one layer of glass. The beauty of double-glazed windows is they are made from two separate glass panes with a thin layer of air located in between them. What is the purpose of this air space? We may hear many of you ask. As a matter of fact, many people don’t know air is actually a great insulator. 

To put it simply, when you heat your home, the heat can move from a hot space to a cold space, this is called convection. However, it requires a cold source such as a single-pane window. With a double glazed window, the air in the middle is trapped, this reduces heat loss through the window. With less heat escaping the room, you can enjoy the benefit of using less heating while the room stays warmer for longer.

Benefits of Double Glazed Windows

Apart from preventing heat escaping and reduce energy costs, double glazed windows have many other benefits, such as:

  • Reduces the sun’s ability to overheat a room, keeping your room nice and cool on a hot summer’s day.
  • Reduces noise pollution, especially if your home is located in an urban area or near a motorway.
  • Durable enough to cope in harsh weather conditions.
  • With proper maintenance, they can last for decades.
  • Relatively easy to match with your existing interior and exterior décor. 
  • Reduces the amount of moisture on your window panes that can lead to mould, as the airtight seal prevents the build-up of condensation.
  • With two glass panes, the security of your home increases. This makes it harder to break the glass and is sealed tighter compared to other windows.
  • Allows in more than enough natural daylight to brighten up your home.
