Energy Efficiency of New Double-Glazing Windows
Double glazing has been around for a while now and the energy efficiency of new double-glazing windows is well documented. If you still have single glazing or even older double glazing windows, making an upgrade could see you make significant savings on your utility bills.
As part of buying and selling a home, you need to get an Energy Performance Certificate which rates things like the windows and doors of the house. While it might not be the core factor in someone deciding to buy the property, it can make a difference and having the right energy efficient double glazing plays a big part in this.
Even if you aren’t planning to sell your house, upgraded double glazing can save you money on gas and electricity bills. You can also do your bit for the environment, reducing your carbon footprint and the demand your family places on the power network.
Energy efficiency isn’t the only reason to have new double glazed windows either. For one, they can reduce noise from traffic and other noise sources outside the home – even when the kids are playing in the garden. They can also reduce the chance of problems such as condensation as this doesn’t build up as much on double glazed windows if you have the right ventilation.
