uPVC double glazed windows supply & fit
If you want to see a huge reduction in your annual energy bills, whilst being environmentally friendly, replacement double glazing is often the way to go. And with uPVC windows you have a material that surpasses aluminium and hardwood, with a number of quality benefits.
uPVC double glazing is the most popular window replacement in the UK and is even recommended by most window installers because of its advantages.
But what is double glazing?
Double glazing is an efficient window unit that will replace your old, inefficient single paned windows. It’ll last for more than 15 years, cutting your energy bills year-in year-out by retaining heat in your home.
It works by having two panes of glass separated by an energy efficient spacer, which doesn’t allow heat to pass through. This spacer is normally Argon and fills a gap between 20mm and 28mm.
Benefits of uPVC double glazing
uPVC windows are the most popular replacement units in the UK and thousands of installations are completed every year. With double glazed windows:
Reduce your heating bills by as much as £300 a year, with superb energy efficiency locking heat in your home. This means you don’t need to turn up the temperature on your boiler to keep warm.
Your property instantly becomes more secure and research actually suggests break-ins are prevented as burglars avoid double glazed properties. Double glazing helps put your mind at rest and ensures greater safety.
Cut your home’s carbon dioxide emissions, lowering your footprint on the planet. Carbon is one of the key gases responsible for environmental problems such as global warming.
And an added benefit with double glazing is that noise pollution is limited, with sound waves unable to pass through that efficient Argon spacer.
