Double glazing is an intelligent investment which improves your homes value and its thermal efficiency – it is one of the best ways to reduce heat loss and improve your home’s energy efficiency. At Decorative Glass & Glazing, our services never result in an unhappy customer. Read on to find out why.
Double Glazing Savings Cardiff
The Energy Saving Trust says that you can save up to £110 per year with double glazing, this all soon adds up. In a Which survey of 2,239 people, 44% of people said their home was warmer after installing double glazing.
Single glazing conducts heat outwards more than inwards, meaning that you are essentially paying to heat the outdoors rather than keeping that energy in your home. Double-glazed windows have a thin gap of air between two panes of glass. This prevents heat loss from occurring as easily and essentially acts as another later of clothing for your house.
Updating your windows helps remove draughts that come in through gaps in your old windows – this can be done without changing your windows completely, but it makes sense to change to Double-Glazing at the same time.

Home Improvements Cardiff
Double glazing can add up to 10% into the value of your home and adds to the chances of your home selling if you ever choose to do so. However, it does depend on your property and the type of double-glazed window. In period properties, for example, timber double glazed windows are strongly recommended over uPVC since they reflect the original features and are more sought after. So, ensure to keep in with the theme of your house as windows are a big thing to make the wrong decision with.
Window Condensation Reduction Cardiff
While a property with high humidity will always see some condensation, as well as keeping rooms ventilated or dehumidified, double glazing can help. Condensation occurs when warm air touches a particularly cold surface – because the interior pane of glass in a double-glazed window is warmer than the single pane in a single glazed window, less condensation occurs. The level of moisture in your house may remain the same, but less condensation will happen thanks to the way that double glazing creates barriers between the warm indoors and cold outdoors.
Increase Your Home Security
There are two main ways that double glazing improves home security; the windows themselves are sealed tighter than other windows, so they are harder to force open. The second pane of glass also means that the windows are harder to break, so smashing in is more difficult for intruders. They are their own deterrent as it is as they’re known for being a tougher barrier to break through.
Sound Insulating Windows Cardiff
Double glazing doesn’t just make your home warmer, it can make it quieter too. It does this roughly the same as the way it improves heat insulation – by creating a second barrier with an air gap, it makes it more difficult for sound to travel to the interior of your home. While the difference can be subtle, you can increase the acoustic insulation by using thicker glass, a wider gap between the glass, or by buying windows with special acoustic glass.
