The noise reduction benefits of double glazing in Edinburgh

A growing number of property owners all over Edinburgh are installing double-glazed windows, and with reasons that are good, since these windows are extremely beneficial.

Double-glazed windows are able to provide these amazing benefits due to the fact that they are made up of two panes of glass instead of only one. These panes are separated with either a vacuum or an inert gas. They also have an evaporator that prevents condensation.

Here are the best 6 benefits that double glazed windows can bring to any home:

Increased Insulation

Double-glazed windows are made to improve insulation by up to 40 percent. It’s the insulated sealed unit (IGU) consisting of two panes of glass along with argon gas and a variety of tints and coatings to provide the insulation, and also prevent direct contact between indoor and outdoor air.

Single pane windows are able to allow the transfer of heat and cold from indoor and outdoor air through the glass. The temperature exchange is responsible for an estimated 30% of all the cool or hot air that escapes from an office or home.

The added insulation of double glazed windows cuts the heat exchange by about 50%. This means that in the winter, the warm air is kept inside and during the summer, it’s outside the place it’s supposed to be.

Lower Energy Bills

Because of its ability to insulate double-glazed glass lowers energy bills. Because double glazed windows minimize losses of warmth during winter and coolness during summer, they allow central heating and air conditioning units to use less energy and maintain the building at a constant temperature.

More Secure

Double-glazed windows are safer than single panes glass. The two panes of glass that are double glazed windows come with internal beading for added security. It can be laminated or reinforced to stop access..

Noise Reduction

Are you interested in making your home or office quieter? Double glazing Edinburgh has the ability to filter out more noise as a single sheet of glass. That means double-glazed windows can create an environment that is up to 80% quieter than single pane windows of the past.

Boost the Value of a Home

Installing double glazed windows increases the value of a home because they increase security as well as making the home more energy efficient.

Double glazed windows also improve the value of your home because they are attractive and shield the interior of the property. UV rays can be seen through any window that is exposed to direct sunshine. The harmful UV rays can damage carpets and furniture and wallpaper, as well as age wallpaper and paint. Two glass panes together with the special coatings that are common in double-glazed windows are able to block out many UV rays and keep interior decorations in good condition for a longer time.

Hassle-free Maintenance

Double glazed windows have several components, however they are easy to clean. The two panes of glass are sealed to prevent dust and humidity from moving into places that are difficult to reach. Along with this, the sturdy uPVC frames that surround the glass naturally resist humidity, never corrode and will never require repainted.
