There are so many factors you need to take into account when selecting double glazing windows for your East Kilbride property but why get them fitted in the first place?

The Benefits

Smaller heating bills will be welcomed by every East Kilbride home owners as the cost of electricity and gas continue to creep up and up. Suggested savings for a three-bedroom house are that on average, you would save £170 a year on heating bills.

Your home would be more comfortable as it’ll be warmer and draught-free, as well as being quieter and with less condensation.

How do double glazed windows work?

Double glazing windows are made of two sheets of glass with a specified gap between them (usually 16mm); this creates an insulating barrier that keeps heat in and the cold out. In some windows this gap is filled with gas. There are also triple-glazed windows but some industry pundits are not sold on the idea that these windows offer improved energy efficiency over double glazed units.

Look for the official rating logo on the double glazing windows that the company proposes to use. The efficiency of the windows is rated on how much heat they stop from passing through them, how much sunlight travels through the glass and how draught-proof they are too.

How do I know the double glazing windows I am bring sold are of the highest quality?

Firstly, the glass for double glazing windows should be the most energy efficient it can be. The higher quality windows will have an invisible coating of metal oxide on the inside pane in the gap of the unit. This lets light in but prevents heat escaping.

The gap in higher quality windows will be filled with a gas such as argon, xenon or krypton.

Check the spacers on the inside rim of the windows. These spacers should be made for little or no metal, known as warm edge spacers.

Just like electrical items in our homes, double glazing windows come with energy ratings, with A being the most efficient and G being the least energy efficient. Preferably, the double glazing windows you would look to install in your East Kilbride property would be B rated or above. However, as with all home modifications, budget may hinder some of your choices but it goes without saying, with double glazing windows and doors, invest in the best you can afford for your East Kilbride property.
