Winter is just around the corner, and it seems like every day is a little greyer and more frozen than the last – and with long, cold months ahead, there’s never been a better time to look into double glazing for your home. Double glazing is quick and easy to install, and provides a whole host of benefits to your home, like soundproofing, much-improved insulation, higher security, and ultimately money in your pocket!
Weather reports every year show us that winter is getting colder, and there’s nothing to say that this winter will be any gentler, so the time to get your winter warmth sorted is now.
Double-glazing is, first and foremost, a great way to insulate your home against the biting cold of even the harshest winters. Double-glazing is made up of two panes of glass separated by a layer of air, and is sealed to prevent any draughts. The layer of air makes it a far, far superior insulator to regular single-pane windows, meaning that wherever it is installed, it will take far less effort to heat the room, boosting comfort in the colder months and saving you money on heating!
Double glazing is also a far superior soundproofing agent to normal glass, meaning that your home will be more peaceful, your nights more restful and your sleep easier as the noises of the outside world are blocked out. The noises of a loud road or a howling storm will be reduced to harmless background noise, and coupled with the new warmth of your double-glazed home, the end result will be a cosy little fortress to shield you and your family from the cold and noise of the outside world.
Continuing the theme of comfort and security, double-glazed windows are also a significant step up from single-glazing in terms of protecting your home and your family from intruders. A single pane of glass can be broken easily and quietly, allowing burglars to get into your home very quickly, but a double-glazed window is much harder to break, and will take more time, make far more noise and much more mess. As incidences of burglary and violent crime increase dramatically around Christmas every year, it can provide real peace of mind to know that you’ve taken steps to keep your home safe and sound.
Ultimately, double-glazed windows will save you money and effort as they cut down on your heating bills, your attempts to keep warm and the noise in your home. They are a long-term investment that will pay for themselves many times over as the years go on – as one double-glazed window will last a lifetime. They keep your house warm, cut down on noise to keep everything tranquil and quiet inside, and provide security against home invasion or robbery. They should be high on any home-owner’s to-buy list, and once installed, will last forever. With Christmas right around the corner, treat yourself to an early present and call Halewood Windows up for some double glazing.
