If you make external improvements to your home, one of the most likely things you will want to change and improve is your windows. There are a number of reasons why you might want to replace your existing windows. You could feel that the frames are old and outdated or your old single glazing is not doing a good enough job.
One of the biggest draw backs of single glazing is that it simply lets out so much heat and is not energy efficient – scoring lowly on your energy performance certificate. It can also lead to problems such as draughts and condensation, making for a cold and unhealthy home. Damp and moisture can result in the growth of mould and mites – unhealthy for both you and your home.
Triple glazing originally began in colder countries such as Sweden and Norway but with ever colder winters approaching the British Isles each year, a need for further insulation for your home is becoming increasingly important to provide a more comfortable environment for your family.
And triple glazing can make a home much more comfortable according to research from Germany at the PassivHaus institute. It revealed the outcome of surface temperatures on various types of glazing when it’s cold outside and the internal air temperature is designed to be at 21°C. With single glazing it was 1°C, older double glazing 11°C, modern double glazing 16°C and triple glazing 18°C. Proving that triple glazing provides a much more comfortable home.
Triple glazing adds a third pane of glass, providing further insulation from both outside cold and noise. Instead of the two panes of glass with an argon gas filling you would have with double glazing, you instead have three panes of glass separated by an argon filling – providing further defence against any cold draughts.
As well as a much more comfortable home, it can also become more stylish, with new windows giving a brand new lease of life to your home. New windows and frames can really make your home look much more modern and sleek as well as new frames providing much better insulation. There are so many choices to choose from which means you can find something that will match your home and its style – be it classic or modern. Choosing from hardwood, aluminium, PVC-U, Composite and sliding sash allows you to choose what’s most suitable for you while benefiting from better glazing at the same time.
