As homeowners look for ways to save on energy bills and live in a more comfortable home, double-glazing has become a popular option for windows and doors. Let’s learn more about double-glazing and how it can benefit your home.
Double-glazing, otherwise known as insulated glazing, makes use of two glass panes, instead of the standard single pane, in windows, resulting in less heat and noise transfer. In some windows, the gaps between the two panes are filled with air, while others are filled with a gas, such as argon, to make the windows more efficient. Double-glazed windows and doors are great for keeping your indoor temperature stable, especially during summer and winter, making for a more comfortable home and lower energy bills. Double-glazed windows will also give you a quieter home, especially if you live near an airport, in the middle of the city, or in a noisy neighborhood.
Double-glazed windows may be used in awning, casement, sliding, and tilt and turn windows with aluminum, timber, or UPVC frames. Double-glazing can also be used in doors, including bi-fold doors, French doors, sliding doors, and stacking doors.
