Double Glazed Sash Windows
As standard, all of our sash windows come with double glazing. An advancement on single glazing, double glazed sash windows feature two panels of glass that feature an air gap inbetween the panes. This prevents cold air from entering the property and retaining warm air for longer.
Due to this innovative design, you’ll notice a considerable reduction in the amount of energy your Surrey and London homes consumes. As warm air will be trapped for longer, you won’t have to worry about expensive heating bills.
With single glazing, only one pane of glass is used, thus meaning that warm is likely to escape and cold air will find it easier to enter through gaps. This is a less efficient option and will likely cause your energy bill costs to increase.
Secondary Glazing for Sash Windows
If you want to upgrade the glass within your sash windows even more, then secondary glazing is also an option. Secondary glazing for sash windows involves the fitting of a discreet internal window into your existing single or double glazed sash windows. There are many incredible benefits of opting for secondary glazing including better insulation and acoustic performance.
Secondary glazing is the perfect glass options for listed buildings in particular that are unable to replace an entire window. The sleek and discreet design doesn’t affect the overall visual of the window and only enhance the performance.
For properties in urban and built up areas around Surrey and London, you may find that single and double glazing doesn’t help with noise pollution. With secondary glazing, you can decrease sounds reverberation and enjoy a more peaceful and quiet atmosphere. The glass provides maximum noise reduction and can even reduce by up to 80%.
As well as their soundproofing qualities, secondary glazing is also designed to further enhance thermal insulations, thus helping to keep energy costs low and also help reduce your overall carbon footprint.
