Do you own a single glazed window home? You might have noticed your blinds moving on their own as the wind blows on your window. Cold seeps in more efficiently through windows that have only one pane of glass, and in the summer the heat infiltrates your home.
Double glazing your windows is cost-effective both in the short and long term, and in addition reduces noise pollution, which keeps the stress away and allows you to sleep better every night. Here at Sash and Case Windows Direct, your comfort is our top priority, and we are specialists in double glazing sash windows while preserving their value.
Winters can be tough and cold, even if your house has heating. If the cold bothers you to a point that you turn the heating on high, and then find that your bills are suffering for it, it’s probably a sign that you should double glaze your windows.
Double glazed windows help keep moisture and damp away, as they offer extra protection from all the outside elements. The light will still pass through the glass-like with single glazed windows, but reducing heat transmission; heat gets trapped inside the room and doesn’t escape through the edges of the windows.
You will save energy and money, which will reflect on your bills straight away. In the summer it works the opposite way, preventing part of the sun’s energy from entering your home and creating a warm, not hot, environment.
The added insulation will benefit you especially if you live in a high traffic area. The gap between the two panes breaks up sound waves, keeping both low and high-frequency sounds from disturbing you inside your home.
Getting a good night’s sleep is vital, whether you have work in the morning or your newborn baby is trying to sleep. Sound from outside at night can be more bothersome than sound during the day; it has a way of sounding right next to your ear. Double glazed windows are a perfect fit for you if you want to filter out annoying, high sounds.
