Top Three Reasons Double Glazing is a Fantastic Investment
Of the many attributes of double-glazing worth talking about, here are three of the most impressive ones:
- Improve the energy efficiency of your home.
- Increase your home security.
- Raise the value of your home.
Boost Energy Efficiency: Reduce Your Bills
As a society, we are becoming increasingly conscious of humanity’s impact on the environment. The amount of energy and resources that we use is incredible, and we are making a concerted effort to make everyday life much more energy efficient.
One area that we can work to great effect is to make our homes more energy efficient. We can do this by adding loft and wall insulation as well as by reinforcing windows where a huge amount of heat can be lost.
Double or triple glazing uses its double layer and air cushion to keep the heat inside. This means that your home will stay hotter for longer and cost significantly less money to heat in the first place.
Not only will this reduce your monthly energy bill by a significant amount of money, but your home’s impact on the environment will also be reduced.
Improve Home Security
Historically, windows have been a week point on any building. Single glazed glass, even of the highest quality, will smash easily. Even a football, when kicked hard enough, will quickly and easily break through the pane. Naturally, burglars are aware of this.
Double glazing, on the other hand, is much more resistant to damage. Firstly, the most obvious feature is that there are two panes to break through instead of one. Naturally, it will be thicker and more robust.
However, the most critical protective feature is the pressurised air gap that sits between the two windows. This acts as a shock absorbing cushion and will spread out any force exerted upon it very effectively.
Although a determined burglar will make it through any barrier given enough time, the amount of time the window will hold off the burglar paired with the noise and disruption they will need to cause can alert you or neighbours to the situation.
As a result of their toughness, they are also incredibly safe for young children to be around. Although a trip or misplaced hand could smash a single-glazed window, our quality windows will resist that damage all day and every day.
Increase the Value of Your Home
A lot of improvements we make to our home might not necessarily have an impact on the value of our house. Decorating, for example, is subjective and might not be particularly attractive to prospective buyers who have different tastes.
However, some improvements are objective improvements, such as having a roof redone or a drainage system updated. Another fantastic investment that you can make is to have windows upgraded to quality double or triple glazing.
Anyone viewing your home will appreciate the fact that they will enjoy the benefits of security, heat and sound insulation, as well as the functionality of double or triple glazing windows.
This quality addition to your home will be reflected in the valuation and, ultimately, in the money, you receive upon sale. You will make a significant amount of your investment back, even if you have enjoyed the windows yourself for many years.
