The Benefits of Double Glazing,Green Deal,Double Glazing

Document Description
Almost every newly built home features double glazing as standard these days. Owners of older homes have the option to replace their existing windows for double glazed alternatives made with either uPVC or hardwood frames. For the most part, the uPVC is the preferred option. In new homes it comes as standard, so there is no decision to make, but for those of us who live in older buildings, installing double glazing can be a costly endeavour, so is it worth it? People often talk about how having double glazed windows installed can save money on heating bills. This is of course true. In modern homes it is understood that 25% of the home's heat is lost through the windows, so two panes of glass will allow less heat to escape than one. The fact that double glazed units are so modern means that they are also fitted, as standard, with the latest draught exclusion systems and the closest seals, preventing heat loss whilst allowing the sun's heat through into the home to warm it. Homeowners with double glazing will find they don't have to have their heating on for so long at such a high temperature, meaning that they save on heating bills. However, don't be led to believe there will be huge savings: it will be several years before the windows actually pay for themselves in savings on gas bills. Nevertheless, the reduction in energy used to heat the home has a positive effect on the environment at a time when we are more concerned than ever as a society about saving energy and preventing waste. Security is an issue for any homeowner. Doubly glazed units are known to be highly secure, significantly more so than traditional windows. This is a major selling point for many clients. Coupled with this fact is the safety aspect: double glazed units are made from either laminated or toughened glass, meaning that if an impact were to break one pain it is unlikely to break the other, limiting the potential for injury. Finally, homeowners are always on the lookout for ways to save money and time on maintenance of their property. This is why uPVC is such a popular choice for window frames. They are very long lasting needing only minimal maintenance however all wooden window frames will require a degree of ongoing maintenance including regular coats of varnish to protect from decay.
