Ideal form of insulation
UPVC double glazing is the ideal form of insulation, with up to 50-70% of home heat lost through single glazing. With UPVC double glazing the airtight construction creates thermal insulation. This means that your home will no longer be subject to temperature extremes and regulating your home’s interior temperature will be easier – warmer in winter and cooler in the summer. Due to the extra pane of glass double glazing reduces the amount of heat able to escape from your homes and cold air seeping in. The major advantage of UPVC double glazing therefore is that is that it will make your property more energy efficient. Less draughts and better temperature control results in less energy being needed to heat up or cool down the space with a reduced need to turn on the heating system leading to lower energy bills.
Moisture on a warm surface forms droplets of water leading to condensation. Condensation can be a serious problem particularly in older houses as it causes mold and mildew. It also can rot wooden frames and damage your family’s health. In UPVC double glazing the combination of air between the two panes of glass and the airtight seal, prohibits the build-up of condensation by blocking moisture in cold weather.
