The Advantages of Double-Glazed Windows
If you are looking for new windows, you have probably considered glazing. You may have heard of double-glazed windows and wondered whether they are worth the additional expense. In our opinion, the answer is yes. Double glazing offers a variety of advantages that make the extra cost well worth it in the long run.
Double glazing means that the window has twice the average amount of insulation. This increased insulation offers a variety of benefits.
One of the main reasons that people want double-glazed windows is because they are more energy efficient. Since they provide better insulation, you will spend less to heat or cool your home. That translates into economic savings.
Keep Your Home More Comfortable
Better insulation means keeping your home at a comfortable temperature is easier. This is true in both summer and winter. Double glazing keeps out summer heat and keeps your air conditioning inside. Perhaps even more important in our location, double glazing keeps cold air out in the winter, preserving your heat. So, you can give your AC unit and furnace a break without compromising your comfort.
You might think of insulation in terms of temperature. However, insurance offers other benefits, as well. One of those benefits is that double-glazed windows can exclude more noise from the outside. It can make a significant difference, especially if you live in a noisy area.
Have you noticed condensation on the inside of your window panes? A better seal can reduce the likelihood of condensation. That can be wonderfully beneficial since condensation can lead to mold and other damage.
No one likes to think of potential break-ins, but they are always possible. Double-glazed windows are more challenging to break, making your home more secure. They are not as durable as bullet-proof or hurricane glass but much stronger than single-glazed windows.
