Whether rolling in from work after a late shift, snuggling up in bed or simply surviving another lockdown, the old adage still proves to be true; ‘home is where the heart is’. We all want and need our homes to be havens of safety and warmth where we can relax and recover and prepare ourselves to face the world again. Whether we live in a two up, two down in Stains upon Thames or a fifteen bedroom palace in the heart of rural Middlesex, keeping a home comfortable comes down to the same basic recipe. For a comfortable home it needs to be kept warm, light and draught free.
The best way to keep a home warm, lit well with natural light and free from draughts is to install good quality double glazing. Double glazing made of two panes of glass sealed together around the edges and the gap in the middle filled with an insulating gas. Because of the way they are designed, double glazing is designed to offer the best thermal insulation. They insulate the room against the cold outside and stop the heat inside from escaping by stopping the transfer of heat through the sealed gas layer. This makes the room more energy efficient and safes money and power keeping your house all warm and toasty. When fitted into a frame of uPVC, wood or aluminium the windows can be sealed into the surrounding building securing it against even the smallest draught.
In 2002 building regulations were updated so that all replacement windows in homes or builds must be double glazed to at least a C rated energy efficiency, unless the building is listed or is in an area of conservation. This is because double glazing works, when existing window frames are retro fitted with double glazing, the efficiency of the thermal insulation can be increased upwards of 80%. When installed as a factory built unit, double glazing can be 100% more efficient than a single glazed equivalent.
