How Much Does Double Glazing Save?

how much does double glazing save

Household energy bills are rising year on year, and it’s important that we do all we can to not only save some cash on home expenses, but also to improve the energy efficiency of our homes if we wish to sell them at a later date.

If you ever choose to put your property on the market or rent it out, you’ll have to obtain an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC), and this will need to demonstrate that you’ve taken as many measures as possible to keep energy wastage and bills as low as possible.

Amongst other solutions, undoubtedly one of the first things you’ll be encouraged to look at is double glazing your property’s windows.

But how much does double glazing save… and are there any other alternatives to further your cost-cutting mission? Let’s get started…

Double Glazing Savings: The Lowdown

Double glazing windows consist of two panels of glass, with a small gap between them, that’s filled with air. This air stops thermal conduction, and so blocks too much air passing through; be that cold or hot.

The Energy Saving Trust recommend installing double glazing, as their estimates show it could save the following on your heating bills:

Energy rating Detached Semi detached Mid terrace Bungalow Flat
A rated £130 – £175 £90 – £120 £80 – £105 £60 – £80 £50 – £65
B rated £120 – £160 £80 – £110 £70 – £95 £50 – £70 £40 – £60
C rated £120 – £150 £80 – £105 £70 – £90 £50 – £65 £45 – £55

These windows could save an additional 50% on top of double glazing figures – so up to £262.50 on detached homes, £180 on semi-detached, £157.50 on mid-terraced, £120 on bungalow and £97.50 on flats. The savings speak for themselves, and it’s not just money you’re saving

Triple Glazing: A One-off Investment, A Lifetime of Benefits

Unfortunately, the Energy Saving Trust have yet to compile results for an even more efficient solution now available in the UK: Liniar triple glazing.

These windows comprise of three panels of glass, with two cavities of air between them, thereby increasing their energy efficiency all round.

These windows could save an additional 50% on top of double glazing figures – so up to £262.50 on detached homes, £180 on semi-detached, £157.50 on mid-terraced, £120 on bungalow and £97.50 on flats. The savings speak for themselves, and it’s not just money you’re saving.

Better temperature regulation by your windows decreases your carbon footprint. If you live on a busy main road, you’ll also notice less intrusion from outside noise, leaving you with a far quieter home overall.

Triple glazing has long been a favourite amongst property developers in countries with cooler climates, such as Canada and Sweden. However, it’s not until now that triple glazing specialists Liniar were willing to permit a British company to take on, and install their product.

Home Logic are the specialist firm they’ve chosen, and their expert team of trained window fitters are ready to survey homes, and fit triple glazing across the country.

Of course, every home is different and this needs to be acknowledged and worked with. Home Logic staff will discuss your requirements with you and provide a free, no-obligation home survey to ensure that you truly have the right windows for you.
