How Does Double Glazing Work?
Might sound like a bit of a no-brainer, but we feel it’s important for all of our customers to know a little about the technology behind double glazing.
We like to think of double glazing as the little miracle for the home improvements industry. Double-glazing reduces your expensive monthly heating bills, eradicates a noticeable amount of noise pollution and improves the security of your home. Even without mentioning the robust compact steel locks that grip the window to the frame.
Double glazing works by fitting two panes of glass at an optimum distance, the measurement of this space is vitally important to ensure the energy saving values are as effective as they possibly can be.
The two panes of glass enclose a layer of air between them. The space is too small to allow the air to move about, if it did the particles would expand and contract allowing air to flow through effortlessly. Instead of doing this, the air remains in the same place, creating what is known in the industry as a thermal blanket.
This thermal blanket prevents unwanted cold air from passing through, and traps your warm expensive heating inside. Thus utilizing your homes energy performance, and decreasing your expensive monthly heating bills.
Finally, fancy having a guess at how much energy your home can lose from bad quality windows and doors? Suprisingly, research carried out by the National Insulation Association has shown poor windows and doors can be responsible for a whopping 20% of your homes total energy wastage. This is a tremendously high number, amounting to an unnecessarily high heating bill.
