Although there’s little doubt that double glazing your home will give it a new, stylish, modern appearance, you can also comfort yourself with the fact that you are benefitting the environment. The double glazed frames look great, but also save a lot of carbon dioxide emissions. New windows have been proven to improve the energy efficiency of a house, resulting in lower costs of heating (or cooling). Replacement windows save energy which is great for the global and the local environment.
If double glazing experts use recycled glass (or “Cullet) in the processing of the windows, this massively reduces the raw materials used. Energy consumption and CO2 emissions are also reduced. The result is that far less used glass is disposed of in landfill sites.
Internal temperatures are stabilised by thermal insulation and help keep your home cosy. These days it’s common for Double Glazing companies to have their products accredited for “Energy Efficiency,” as it’s of such global importance. There will usually be an energy-saving logo to look out for when choosing your Double Glazing suppliers. There is a rating from A to G, based on the glass, seals and the window as a whole. It has become very important to companies that they get their products registered with the very highest grade possible.
It’s been proven that up to 25% of the heat in your property is lost because of badly insulated window frames and single glazed apertures. After the initial financial outlay your bills will be smaller. It’s a win-win situation!
