Everybody knows the usual benefits of double glazing. It has better insulation than traditional glazing, so it can reduce the amount of heat transfer from your house in the winter, keeping you a lot warmer. It also reduces your energy bills, as with this extra warmth you won’t need to turn your heating on so much. And that’s all great in the winter, but what about the summer…
Here are some of the benefits of double-glazing that you’ll discover in the summer.
Summer brings with it longer days, lighter evenings and overall warmer temperatures. This normally means that people are outside a lot more often, such as at BBQs and parties that might stretch into the night. Double glazing has sound insulation, so if the outside noise is annoying to you it is much easier to block it out.
Did you know that the intense sunlight that comes into your home during summer can actually be fairly damaging? Too many UV rays can make furniture, photographs, curtains and other furnishings start to fade. Double-glazed windows can limit the amount of UV rays that go into your home, keeping your furnishings safe.
While you may think the best temperature control happens in the winter with double glazing, it works all year round. It stops heat transferring from one side to the other, so in hot weather, it will limit the amount of hot air that will transfer to the inside of your home.
Everybody wants to feel safe in their own home. One of the best ways to tighten up security is with double glazing. Double-glazed windows are very difficult to smash due to being made up of two, very tough panes of glass. You can go on your summer holiday and feel safe in the knowledge nobody will be breaking in through your windows.
