What Is The Difference Between Single And Double Glazing?

Are you looking for new windows? If you don’t know much about frames, we can help you choose the right ones for your property. There are a few types of glazing options when it comes to your panes. We’ve created a short guide on the differences glazing options.

Single Glazed Windows

This describes a unit that only has one pane of glass within its frame. They are still quite common in older properties, but many people have upgraded to double glazing. If you opt for new panes, these can still be strong and resilient for your home.

Double Glazing

Double Glazed Windows

From the name, you’ve probably guessed that this describes two panes within a frame. These two pieces of glass can also be separated by a pocket of argon gas, increasing its favourable properties. There are many advantages to this extra layer inside your frames. There is also the option to choose triple glazed windows which further increases the benefits. Here are just a few of the advantages:

Better Energy Efficiency

Perhaps the biggest reason to opt for double glazing is the fact that they make for energy-efficient windows. These units will help keep the heat inside your home. The extra layer of glass will slow the heat loss inside your property and keep your house at a good temperature.

Improved Heating Bills

Better energy efficiency means that when you put your heating on, the warmth isn’t going to immediately escape your home. Not only is this great for keeping your home warm, but it’s also going to help cut those energy bills down.

Noise Reduction

Thicker windows become a useful barrier between your property and the outside world. It can reduce noise from traffic, passers-by, and even loud lawnmowers outside your home. If you want a more peaceful house, contact us today.

Better Security

Two panes are going to be harder to break than one, which is why double-glazed windows offer more security than single panes. The extra blanket of protection is going to offer much more resistance than just one, which is why many people opt for double glazing as a standard.
