ABOUT DOUBLE GLAZING

Why should You Install Double Glazing?

Energy bills are on the rise and this is something not very good for your family budget. Windows have the potential to affect the cooling and heating loads of a building significantly. Double glazing is the perfect insulation considering that between 50 and 70 percent of the heat in your home is lost through single-glazed windows and reduces the amount of heat that burns through the windows on hot, sunny days.

It leads to a reduction in the condensation that causes mildew and mold growth, and it can even rot wooden window frames and harms the health of your family. Double glazing helps to reduce the excess moisture on window panes.

Double glazing lowers the noise level for a quieter, calmer home. Double glazed windows make it harder for intruders to break in especially if you have toughened or laminated glass.

What Is The Cost Of Double Glazing?

The cost of double glazed windows depends on the quality, but you should expect to pay not less than 25 percent more than single glazed windows. With double glazed windows, you should expect to enjoy savings of up to 25 percent on your energy bills and consumption. You can expect to take at least 5 years to recoup the additional cost of double glazed windows but this will depend on your personal energy consumption. However, this one-time investment has the potential to make your life more comfortable and will help you battle the rising costs of energy as the years go by.

Lessen the Damage to Your Furnishings

Double glazed windows help to lessen the amount of heat and sun that enters a room. This helps to lessen damage to your carpet, furniture, paintings, and various other objects around your home.

Increases the Resale Value of Your Home

Double glazing is a great way to enhance your home’s resale value. Double glazing makes even older homes to be just as desirable to buyers that want to ensure that they buy an efficiently insulated house.

Safety

Unlike single pane windows, double glazed windows are tougher to break, which helps to increase the security of your home. Since they are tighter than other windows, it is also harder to forcibly open them from the outside.

What Will Double Glazing Do For You?

The double glazing in your home operates just like woollen clothing and fibreglass batts. Between the two panes is a trapped layer of air. Air is very poor in conducting heat meaning that the trapped layer creates a blanket of protection between warm air on one side and cold air on the other. Glass is itself quite a good conductor. In homes with no double glazing heat just goes straight out the window.

Energy efficient windows will enhance comfort in your home and lower your energy bills dramatically as well as help in the creation of a healthier, cleaner, and brighter environment.

FENSA Registered.

Our network of installers are FENSA Registered. In case you don’t know, that is the body that offers property owners protection when they buy double glazing. We strongly urge consumers to only buy from a FENSA registered company.

FENSA is short for Fenestration Self-Assessment Scheme. The organisation works with numerous double glazing installers throughout England. There are various reasons to choose a FENSA registered installer.

For starters, the organisation evaluates the installers registered with them. Not only that, but the installer will include a 10-year insurance backed guarantee, which provides you with peace of mind, and the property owner receives a FENSA certificate. This proves that building regulations were met for each installation performed.

The work completed is registered with the local authority, which means you don’t have to waste your time doing the task. Also, a company that is registered can perform their work anywhere throughout the UK, so you can use the same company if you decided to locate to a different part of the country. Let’s not forget to mention that the deposit you give to the installer is protected. As of now, FENSA has issued over six million certificates, and they are a leader in the double glazing industry.

Our Customers

“I was interested in this technology and the fact that I would recover some capital from my investment. But the initial cost was a factor for us so therefore we were impressed with both the quotation, and product knowledge, provided by Derby Double Glazing. Derby Double Glazing was excellent. I would recommend them to anyone. They kept their promises on delivery, installation, and after-sales and were clean and tidy during the work at our house. In fact, they finished a half-day early.”
