How does double glazing work? You can liken it to when you wear layers of clothing. Air, unlike metal or other solids, is a poor conductor of heat. Therefore when you have air trapped between layers of clothing or layers of glass, the heat doesn’t escape as easily to the outside world. As a result of using highly officiant double glazing to keep our homes warmer, and keep any heating created inside, energy loss and energy bills have also been lowered.
