Double glazed windows will save you money on your energy bills across the year and add value to your overall property. But on the face of it, they look pretty much the same as standard, singularly-glazed windows.

Well take a single pane of glass as an example. This provides poor insulation because glass is a great conductor of heat. It will absorb the temperature from your home and transfer it outside and vice versa. By installing another pane of glass behind it, you trap a thin layer of air between both panes. Fresh air is not such a great conductor of heat and therefore, much less heat is lost through your window.
