Why did Double Glazing become more important today?


What is double glazing, and why should you learn about it? Double glazing is a process which involves windows. In this case, the window in question is created by two panes of glass separated by a small space. The thickness of the space is estimated to be few millimeters. Air is released within the space between the glass panes to serve as a layer of insulation. A drying agent will be put in place to guarantee the absence of moisture in the finished glass unit before the unit is sealed. It is necessary that the window unit is made airtight. If it is not, there will be condensation between the panes. Windows which have undergone the aforementioned process cannot be repaired once condensation appears; instead, it has to be replaced.

Everyone should learn about double glazing because the process makes windows more beneficial for homeowners. First, it makes windows more energy efficient. The standard, single pane windows causes about 60% of heat loss to occur in the home. Hence, these kinds of windows contribute to the increase of heating bills. While one will pay an amount to have the process done to their normal windows, the new windows will pay its cost from all the money saved from heating bills. The moment the new windows are installed, the heating costs should drop an estimated 10 to 12%. Aside from preventing energy loss, these windows also reduce noise pollution and internal condensation. Indeed, the process makes the house more friendly to the environment.

Also, windows which have undergone the said process also offer better security. More often than not, intruders access a home through doors and windows. Compared to the single paned windows, the double paned variety are much harder to break through. There are even companies which supply these windows with built-in security features and top quality locking system. Hence, the property is more protected with the help of the process.
