We all are aware of the single-glazed windows. They have one layer of glass and are bracketed in timber frames. On the other hand, double-glazed windows have two layers of glass and are bracketed with various forms of materials like hardwearing uPVC, modern aluminium frames, and traditional timber wooden frames. Here are the benefits of installing double-glazed windows in your home.
- Keeps the place warmer in the winter
Double glazed windows doesn’t only contain two layers of glass, but they also have an air gap between each layer of glass—primary and secondary pane. Because of this gap, you will be able to experience heat retention, thermal performance and noise reduction. Moreover, most of the heat will be retained because of the presence of extra layer of glass and air being an insulator. This means that the heat which is usually lost will struggle to find a way to travel into your room. Hence, your room stays warmer in winter.
