Why it’s Important to Make Sure you Have Double Glazed Windows

Double glazing has been around for decades now but some people still don’t realise quite how important it is. While it is decidedly more expensive than single glazing, double glazing brings with it so many benefits that it makes it worth every extra penny that you spend. Here at Premier Windows, we only offer our customers high-quality double glazing, ensuring that they have the protective qualities and benefits then our customers have come to expect from our products. Double glazing is more than just a way of building windows, they are an important part of keeping yourself and your household healthy and happy.


Understanding the Benefits of Double Glazed Windows



  • Better for Insulation



Traditional glazing only has one pane of glass, whereas double glazing has two. This means that double glazing is a significantly better insulator than more traditional single glazing. This is important to many households because good insulation keeps heat inside the house and therefore lowers your energy bill. 


Not only is this important for the cold winter months but it is also useful in the hot summer months as double glazing can keep out the extreme heat. The additional pane of glass really does make more difference than you can imagine, which is one of the many reasons you should pick double glazing over single glazing for every window in your home.



  • Offers Quality Noise Reduction



Did you know that windows do more than let sunshine in, they also stop heat going out? They also stop noise coming in. Have you ever stayed in a house that feels like every little noise from outside is filtering in? It’s very frustrating and it can wreak havoc with your sleeping patterns. Not being able to sleep is a real detriment to your mental and emotional health as well as your physical well-being. 


Double glazing is an excellent way for you to improve insulation in your home. They are especially useful if you live in a noisy neighbourhood or if you live near an airport. Double glazing can give you the peace and quiet that you need to get deep sleep every night of the week. And, as an added bonus, they also do a great job in filtering the sound that leaves your house as well. You can comfortably listen to music or have a conversation without disturbing your neighbours.



  • Provide Greater Security 



Single glazed windows are easy to break. There’s only one layer of glass that can be easily smashed, allowing for a fairly simple entry into your property. As a result, your home could be a prime target for many burglars. Installing double glazed windows is one of many ways that you can increase the security in your home and keep you well looked after. 


Double glazing is far harder to break, making it more difficult to gain entry. You can increase this level of security simply by adding a layer of laminate or choosing the toughened glass. Not only will this help you not be a target, but it will also help you to sleep better at night, knowing that you and your household are as safe as possible.
