Benefits of Edinburgh Double Glazed Windows

Many property owners throughout Edinburgh are installing double-glazed windows, and with good reason. These windows offer many advantages.

Double-glazed windows can provide these benefits since they are made up of two panes of glass instead of one. The panes are separated using the use of a gas or vacuum, and an desiccant that eliminates condensation.

Here are the top six advantages that double-glazed windows can bring to any home:

Increased Insulation

Double-glazed windows are made to improve insulation by up to 40 percent. It’s the insulated sealed unit (IGU) comprised of two glass panes with argon gas, as well as various coatings and tints that offer the insulation, and also prevent direct contact between outdoor and indoor air.

Single pane windows allow the transfer of heat or cold from outdoor and indoor outside air via the window. This exchange of temperature accounts for around 30% of all the cool or hot air that escapes from the business or home.

The higher insulation of double-glazed windows reduces the heat exchange by about 50 percent. This means that in the winter, warm air remains in the house, while during summer, it is outside exactly where it is supposed to be.

Lower Energy Bills

Due to its insulation capabilities double-glazed glass reduces the cost of energy. Since double-glazed windows limit losses of warmth in the winter months and also coolness in summer, they permit central heating and air conditioning units to operate less frequently and keep the building’s temperature.

Increased Security

Double-glazed windows are more secure than single panes of glass. The two glass panes in double-glazed windows feature internal beading to provide additional security. They can also be strengthened or laminated to block access..

All of our double-glazed windows are made of uPVC frames. UPVC is a naturally strong material and we join all the joints of the window frames in order to create even more durable. Double glazing Edinburgh is an effective way of preventing those who would like to open a window or even break it.

Noise Reduction

Are you interested in making your home or workplace a more peaceful place? Double-glazed windows have the ability to block more noise than a single pane glass. Double glazed windows can create an environment as quiet as 80% than single pane windows of the past.

Increase the Value of a Home

Double-glazed windows can increase the value of your home due to their security and make a home more energy efficient.

Double-glazed windows provide value as they are attractive and shield the interior of your home. UV rays are reflected through any window that is exposed to direct sunlight. The harmful UV rays can damage carpets and furniture and wallpaper, as well as age wallpaper and paint. Two glass panes together with the special coatings that are typical in double-glazed windows can filter out a variety of UV rays and help keep interior decor in good condition for longer.

Maintenance that is hassle-free

Double-glazed windows are made up of many components, yet they are easy to keep clean. The two glass panes are sealed to prevent dust and humidity from getting into difficult-to-reach places. In addition the strong uPVC frames that surround the glass are naturally resistant to moisture, will not corrode, and do not require painted again.
