By reducing heat loss between the cosy warmth inside and cold weather outside, you can enjoy a more comfortable living environment and save on energy costs.
Insulating Glass Units (IGUs – commonly known as double glazing) need to be viewed as a necessity rather than a luxury. The energy savings can be enormous, and you’ll enjoy a far healthier and more comfortable environment.
One of the most efficient ways to prevent heat loss in your home or work environment is with IGUs. These are made by using two sheets of glass with an air cavity between them. Heat transfer can be reduced by as much as 70% when compared to typical 4mm standard single glazing.
An added benefit, and also important, is the reduction of unsightly and damaging condensation, mould, and mildew.
Coming home, when you’ve got IGUs, is a warm experience. Take off your heavy clothing and relax, whatever the weather. Gain better use of floor space because you’ve reduced cold zones and draughts. Heavy drapes won’t be required to keep heat in, so you have a greater choice of window furnishings. You can increase your total window area enhancing the natural light and giving better views.
Other important IGU benefits include the reduction of noise transmission and a cooler home in summer. You will also protect the resale value of your premises because you’ve provided a more desirable feature in the real estate market.
