Are you looking for Energy Efficient Double or Triple Glazing for your home?
Double Glazing Essex understands that Energy efficiency is becoming increasingly more important to home owners. Consistently escalating fuel costs means that your double glazing should be as energy efficient as possible.
All properties lose heat through their windows, but energy-efficient glazing keeps your home warmer and quieter as well as reducing your energy bills.
The most energy-efficient type for double glazing is low emissivity (Low-E) glass. This often has an invisible coating of metal oxide, normally on one of the internal panes. This lets in light and heat but cuts the amount of heat that can get out.
Very efficient windows might use gases such as argon, xenon or krypton in the gap between the sheets of glass.
These are set around the inside edges to keep the two panes of glass apart. For maximum efficiency, look for pane spacers containing little or no metal – often known as ‘warm edge’ spacers.
Double Glazing Essex is now triple glazing Essex too!
Double-glazed windows have two sheets of glass with a gap in between, usually 20mm, to create an insulating barrier that keeps heat in, this gap is filled with a gas, however the triple-glazed windows have three sheets of glass with two gas filled gaps creating even more insulation.

Benefits of energy-efficient windows & doors
- Smaller energy bills.
- Smaller carbon footprint.
- More comfortable home: energy-efficient glazing reduces heat loss through windows & doors and means fewer draughts and cold spots.
- Peace and quiet: as well as keeping the heat in, energy efficient-windows insulate your home against external noise.
- Reduced condensation: energy-efficient glazing reduces condensation build-up on the inside of windows.
The costs and savings for energy-efficient glazing will be different for each home and each window, depending on its size and material.
