If you are a UK homeowner and you have yet to change your windows for double or triple glazed units, you are definitely in the minority. Ever since the 1980s, double glazing has been a popular improvement to make and here are the benefits you can expect to enjoy when you install UPVC or aluminium double-glazed windows.
- Even Warmth – There are no draughts with double glazing, giving you a nice even warmth throughout the house and that armchair by the window will now be used.
- Huge Energy Savings – Whether you have gas or electric central heating, you can expect to see a significant reduction in your winter fuel bill when you install state-of-the-art custom-made double glazing.
- Improved Sound Insulation – This is very noticeable; you will no longer hear the neighbour’s lawn mower or the kids playing in the street. If you already have double glazing that is rather old, there is affordable double glazing repairs in West Wickham from an established company. Once you close the windows, you will be able to rest and relax without the bother of external noise, which is great for shift workers.
- Boost Home Security – When a burglar is scoping for an easy target, one look at the new double glazed windows is enough to deter any thief, as they know these windows are virtually impenetrable.
There are many companies in the double glazing industry and you should ask at least 3 companies to quote for the project, as there is a wide range of products and prices.
