Did you know that you could be paying more for your energy bills unnecessarily?
Did you know that you could block out more noise from your home to enjoy more peace and quiet?
Did you know that windows can improve the overall security of your home?
You may have answered no to these questions, and you certainly wouldn’t be alone! Many homeowners simply don’t realise that windows have a huge range of benefits. Traditional single glazed windows, or those with timber frames, can pose a range of issues which could leave you out of pocket and your home suffering from poor insulation.
New double glazing windows, now available from many reputable window companies in a range of styles and colours, can present you with lots of priceless advantages. Here are 3 reasons to replace the windows on your home.
Improved Thermal Efficiency
During winter months, heating bills rise due to the fact that we use more energy than we do in summer to keep our homes warm and comfortable. However, many homeowners still pay over and above what they should for their gas and electricity, simply because their homes are not effectively insulated. Double glazing windows are massively energy efficient and are cleverly designed to keep warm air in and keep cool air out. As a result, your home will retain more heat and the necessity for excess energy to heat your property will reduce, saving you a great deal of money over time.
Improved Noise Reduction
Many homeowners suffer from outside noise affecting their home life. Weather, traffic and other external factors can be very loud in a house that has single-glazed windows. Windows with double glazing can and will significantly reduce noise simply because of their design. The two windowpanes provide a buffer between the inside and the outside of the property, absorbing the majority of the noise, allowing you to enjoy the peace of comfort of your home without interference.
Improved Window Security
Modern UPVC windows can offer a full range of security features, from a variety of locking mechanisms, to the actual strength of the windowpanes and frames themselves. Traditional timber frames naturally rot over time and as a result, become easily damaged. Single glazed windowpanes can also be smashed or broken with little effort. Double glazing windows are sturdy, durable and built to last. As such, home security is greatly improved once they are installed.
