What are double glazed windows?
Double glazed windows are fittings manufactured with hard-wearing unplasticised polyvinyl chloride that use two panes of glass instead of one, with a layer of argon gas designed to keep your home more energy-efficient. These windows are now widely fitted in new homes thanks to their long-lasting properties, easy maintenance and excellent heat insulation. Styles and designs can vary greatly, including wood-effect patterns and modern colour palettes.
How can I tell if my double glazing needs replacing?
Although long-lasting, double glazing does eventually need to be replaced when it is no longer performing its task of insulating the home. Clear sign of wear, such as warped windows or discolouration, are an indication that might be time to fit replacements. Unusually high energy bills and noticeable drafts can also be clues that your double glazing is no longer up to scratch.
What does double glazing do?
Double glazing improves heat insulation, increases home energy efficiency and also reduces sound from outside. The gap between the two panes of glass is not sealed as a vacuum. The purpose of double glazing is to reduce the heat transfer process that takes place between the interior and exterior of a home. The air in this gap is dried, and argon is used as further barrier for heat transfer. The inner pane of glass acts as further protection to heat loss and also helps reduce sound infiltration.
Can you reseal double glazed windows?
Resealing double glazed windows can be done by the original installers, however, this process does not guarantee efficiency and will not provide the same longevity that replacement windows will. Fully replaced double glazed windows will come with warranties, guaranteeing the work and materials used for the job.
How much does double glazing save per year?
Installing double glazing could lead to yearly savings of £120-155 for detached homes, £80-110 for semi-detached homes, £65-85 for mid-terrace homes and £50-70 for bungalows, according to government estimations based on typical gas heating costs.
How long does double glazing last?
Depending on the build quality of the window, weather conditions and the degree to which they have been maintained, double glazing can last over 20 years. The lifespan of double glazing can be extended by regular maintenance, including wiping down with soapy water and keeping the hinges and mechanisms well oiled.
Is secondary glazing better than double glazing?
Secondary glazing is considerably cheaper than double glazing, however it is much less efficient and does not offer the same sound and heat insulation. Although working with a similar concept, no seal is used in secondary glazing, which means that there is no difference in air pressure between the two panes of glass, leading to easier heat transfer. Whilst secondary glazing is considerably quicker to install, it does not provide the same benefits as double glazing.
