Double glazed windows in Newport and Cardiff to Chepstow and Monmouth
One of the most effective methods of reducing the large amount of heat that would typically escape through your windows, double glazing is a simple yet effective solution that is fast becoming the industry standard for comfortable living in the 21st century. Suitable for application in both modern builds and period homes, double glazing provides a wealth of additional benefits of value to the homeowner.
Double glazing is the act of using two glass panels within a window’s frame as opposed to the typical one, this helps improve insulation by trapping heat within the two panes and results in less energy consumption in the home. Depending on the size of your home, double glazed windows have the potential to save you between £40 and £170 annually.
Reduce your Monmouthshire home’s heating bills
Immediately after your new double glazed windows are installed, you’ll begin reaping the financial benefits with heat being more easily trapped between the panes leaving you less inclined to switch on the central heating as would normally be the case. If your home is still making use of windows that were installed decades ago, not only will they be single pane but will most likely suffer from leaks or draughts – no more with double glazed windows.
Single glazed windows can sometimes suffer from annoying condensation when moisture builds up over time, particularly in older homes as it causes mould and sometimes rot. Double glazing works its magic by reducing this excess moisture on your window panes, improving not only your property’s health but your family’s also.
