Double glazing insulates your home against extremes of temperature, trapping some of the summer sun’s rays and minimising the heat which burns through your windows on hot, sunny days
Because there is less need for heating systems, you will be reducing energy consumption, which will save on your electricity cost and help the environment.
Double glazing reduces noise for a calmer, quieter home. High performance double glazing can reduce outside noise by up to 60%, making it a great investment if you live on a busy road
