Double glazing FAQs
What is double glazing?
Double glazing is a type of window made up of two panes of glass separated by a small gap. The gap is filled with either a vacuum, argon, krypton or air, which creates an insulation barrier. This insulation helps to keep the house warm in winter, and cool in summer, which in turn reduces energy bills.
Double glazing also provides excellent sound insulation, as the gap between the two panes helps to dampen outside noise. It also has a high solar energy reflected percentage, meaning that it can keep the house cooler in summer. All these features make double glazing an excellent choice for anyone looking to make their home more energy efficient.
Can double glazing reduce condensation?
Installing double glazing can drastically reduce condensation on windows, leading to a warmer, drier, and healthier home. The thermal insulation between the outside and inside is improved when double glazing is put in place, leading to a decrease in condensation. Despite this, it is still possible that condensation will form on the outside of the glass in certain areas of the home.
What is Low-emissivity (Low-e) glazing?
Low-e glazing also known as Low-emissivity glazing is a type of window glazing that uses a special low-emissivity coating to reduce the amount of heat that is transferred through the window.
This coating helps to reduce the amount of energy needed to heat and cool a building, making it more energy efficient and helping to reduce energy costs.
Low-e glazing also helps reduce the amount of ultraviolet rays entering the home, protecting furniture and other fabrics from fading.
What are the advantages and disadvantages of Low-e glazing?
The advantages of Low-e glass are extensive. It adds great insulating power to windows, has impressive solar gain statistics, and provides UV protection. It also does not prohibit the addition of other useful features such as increased security, noise-proofing or easy-cleaning technology, and makes your home more energy efficient, potentially saving you money on your heating bills.
The primary disadvantage of Low-e glass is its increased initial cost compared to standard uncoated glazing. Additionally, it reduces natural light entry to your home by 25-85%, depending on the specification of the units you choose.
Is triple glazing worth the investment?
Triple glazing offers many advantages over double glazing, such as increased insulation and noise reduction. The glass is thicker and stronger, making it more suitable for extreme climates and providing extra protection from the elements.
Despite its advantages, triple glazing also has some disadvantages. It can be more expensive than traditional double glazed windows and can be more difficult to install. Additionally, because the windows are thicker, they may reduce the amount of natural light that enters the building.
Generally, in the UK, triple glazing may not have the same advantages as in other parts of the world, so it may not be worth the extra investment
