Why use the double glazing window?
The double glazing window will become your helping hand that provides much better window insulation than single blazing. Furthermore, there are a few of different features to look for that highly affect the performance of double glazing window. First of all, the double glazing window has a special way of work by creating an insulating layer between two panes of glass. The insulation layer itself can be normal air or any special heavy gasses. It lets in as much sunlight as single glaze window did, except their holds in the heat will be much better.
After all, I can say that double glazing window is standard in most of new houses. I can say that it will be worth of money to install the double glazing window in an existing house anytime your windows need substantial repair or replacing. It would be better if you install the double glazing window o the main heated areas on your house and where there are large windows. The best double glazing windows would halve the heat loss through the window, reduce any external noise, significantly improve thermal comfort on your house and reduce any condensation that build up in the cold weather.
Optimizing your double glazing window
You should look for frames that thermally broken or you also can find the one that being made from an insulating material such as u – PVC or wood. These kinds of materials are less likely to attract condensation and eventually lose less heat than the windows with standard aluminum frames. For your information, standard aluminum frames often times attract more of condensation when the weather is freezing even with the double glazing window system. If you compare standard aluminum frames, thermally broken aluminum frames would reduce any window heat loss by 20% while PVC or wooden frames by 40%.
It also be a great idea to get the low – emissivity glass because it allow light and heat in but at the same time reflect escaping heat back inside your room. This type of glass would cuts any window heat loss problem by 20% to 30% compared to double glazing window without using the low – emissivity glass. To keep draughts, noise and moisture out from your place, you can get multiple layers of good seals because the joint between the glazing unit and the frame would also need to be well – sealed. For the spacers, it will be a good idea to look the one that being made from plastic or stainless steel to separate the glass panes to reduce any heat loss and condensation at your glass edge. Finally, inert gas filling (Argon) would always acts as a better insulator than air filling.
