The energy efficiency of double glazing

The majority of homeowners all over Edinburgh are installing double glazed windows, and with the right reason, as these windows have many benefits.

Double-glazed windows offer these amazing benefits due to the fact that they come with two panes glass instead of just one. They are separated by one of two methods: a vacuum, or inert gas. They also have an desiccant that eliminates condensation.

Single pane windows allow the transmission of heat or cold from outdoor and indoor ambient air to the windows. The temperature exchange is responsible for an estimated 30% of the hot or cool air that escapes an office or home.

The greater insulation offered by double-glazed windows decreases heating exchange by at least 50%. That means that during winter months, the warm air remains in the house, while during summer, it is outside exactly where it is supposed to be.

Lower Energy Bills
