What is the Difference Between Old and New Double Glazing? 

Over the years, each type of double glazing technology has significantly improved, offering improved energy efficiency, security, and noise reduction compared to older models. 

Energy Efficiency 

Modern double glazing exceeds the minimum energy efficiency standards, with our units achieving as low as 0.8 W/m²K. This means better heat retention, reduced heat loss, and lower energy bills for homeowners. Learn more about our energy-efficient windows. 

Better Security 

New double glazing units are designed with security in mind. Extra panes of glass and multi-point locking systems make it harder for intruders to break in, providing homeowners with peace of mind. Find out about our secure and durable window options. 

Noise Reduction 

Modern double glazing offers superior soundproofing, making your home a quiet sanctuary. This is especially beneficial for homes near busy roads or in urban areas. Explore our soundproof windows.

When to Replace Double Glazing? 

Knowing when to replace your double glazing is crucial to maintaining an efficient and secure home. Here are some signs that it might be time to upgrade your window unit: 

Condensation Between Panes:  

This indicates that the seal has failed, and the unit is no longer effective. 

Drafts and Cold Spots: 

If you feel cold air coming through your windows, it’s a sign that they are not performing well. 

Increased Energy Bills: 

Older windows may be less energy-efficient, leading to higher heating costs. 

Visible Damage: 

Cracks, warping, or broken hinges are clear indicators that your windows need replacement. 

If you notice any of these signs, it might be time to invest in new windows. Get in touch with us for a quote.
