Benefits of Double glazed windows


A double glass window unit consists of five principal components. These include the two glass panes, the primary seal, the secondary seal, the cavity, and the spacer bar. Furthermore, a desiccant (a hydrophobic substance that absorbs moisture) is placed between the two glass panes to prevent fogging. The panes themselves can be tinted, transparent, or coated with a reflective layer. – PowerPoint PPT presentation

Title: Benefits of Double glazed windows

Benefits of Double glazed windows

What are they?
  • Double glazing doors and windows consist of two
    panes of glass instead of one. These glasses are
    mounted on the window frame at a distance of
    1216 mm from each other. This gap is maintained
    using a spacer bar and although it usually
    comprises of normal air, it can also contain
    argon gas. The method of trapping air between the
    gaps is also referred to as insulated glazing as
    it dramatically reduces heat and noise
    transmission. This reduction is directly
    proportional to the number of glass layers a
    window has. The more layers there are, the better
    the insulation.

  • 1) Reduced energy bills
  • There are multiple studies that prove how the
    majority of a homes heat is frittered away
    because of single glazed windows. Depending upon
    the study you refer, this figure ranges from a
    somewhat acceptable 30 to a downright outrageous
    70. Seeing how expensive energy is becoming,
    thats a lot of pounds right there. Double glazed
    windows are excellent when it comes to minimising
    this loss of heat. In other words, they help
    lower your energy costs.

  • 2) Increased safety
  • Since there are two glass panes instead of one,
    double glazed windows are considerably stronger
    than their single glazed counterparts. So by
    installing double glazed windows, you can make
    your home more secure and safer. Moreover,
    breaking two layers of toughened glass is not
    easy, especially without causing some sort of

  • 4) Greater peace
  • Double glazed windows can cut down the amount of
    noise that enters your home by almost 60. That
    is huge, especially if you live in a busy area or
    in the vicinity of an airport or highway. The end
    result of this reduction is greater peace at home.

  • 5) Increased home value
  • More and more homebuyers are coming around to
    recognize the benefits of double glazed
    glass equipped doors and windows and willing to
    pay a premium for it. If you are a homeowner
    looking to make a sale, you can consider
    installing double glazed windows to get a better
    price for your home.

  • 6) Reduced carbon footprint
  • Perhaps the most understated benefit of double
    glazed windows, a reduced carbon footprint refers
    to the reduction in your energy consumption
    brought about by double glazed doors and windows.
    Lower the energy you consume, lower are the
    greenhouse gases emitted as a result of the
    cooling and heating services used by your home.
