How Does Double Glazing Reduce Heat Loss?

what-temperature-should-a-house-be

Nowadays, it seems as though every home has double glazing as standard, and if yours doesn’t, it’s really time to start considering having new windows installed.

It won’t just increase the heat levels in your home; it will also improve the energy efficiency of your property too! But how does double glazing reduce heat loss in the home? Let us explain…

How Double Glazing Helps Reduce Heat Loss

Double glazing consists of, as you might expect, two panels of glass rather than just one. These panels are fitted close together, but not touching – and the gap between them is where the magic lies.

The gap between the panels of glass fills with air. Air is a poor conductor of heat, so less of it passes through. The narrower the gap, the better, as this also prevents convection currents in the air (essentially, air movement).

The difference in general temperature is noticeable between those properties with single glazing, and those with double.

How Triple Glazing Compares

However, double glazing is not the most effective solution. In countries with colder climates, such as Norway, Sweden and Canada, triple glazing is used.

Triple glazing doubles the impact of double glazing, providing an effect seal against heat loss through your windows. If you thought double glazing made a difference, you’ll be amazed by how much triple glazing will-especially as you see your monthly bills take a noticeable nosedive!

With expert installation teams around the country, and a back-office team of window glazing specialists, Home Logic are the clear choice to talk to when you’re considering upgrading your windows.

Maximum Gains for Minimum Effort

The additional glass panel fitted within the window doesn’t just prevent valuable heat from escaping your home. Noise levels from the outside world will be drastically reduced- a particularly pleasing perk, if you live on a busy main road.

Triple glazing, when installed by companies such as Home Logic, is fitted with the most secure frames on the market. These frames come with an internal beading system, that makes them the safest option available, and means that glass breakage is considerably more difficult than with traditional windows.

Triple glazing also reduces condensation levels; and with no flaky-paint frames to boot, you’ll find cleaning your windows a breeze, compared to before.

Alongside saving money on your energy and heating bills, you can stop paying a window cleaner too… and get out and do it yourself!
