Double Glazed Windows

Installing double glazed windows can help save you from losing a significant amount of heat in winter and from adding unwanted heat during summer. Up to 40% of a home’s heat is being lost in winter and up to 87% of its heat gained through windows in summer. This means high-performance double-glazed windows are crucial for ensuring energy efficiency and for future-proofing your home against a changing climate. The increased strength of double-glazed windows means reduced risk of breakage, decreased noise from outside and improved fire-resistance.

It’s also important to consider which direction your windows face. For example, east facing will get the morning sun, and west facing will get the afternoon sun.

Renters can access temporary products that add an adhesive layer to windows to improve thermal performance.
