Many people don’t know how double glazing works, but it’s something that can have a big impact on the value of your property. Double glazing means that your house or flat has two panes of glass instead of just one, allowing the heat to stay trapped and be used to provide warmth for your home when the sun isn’t shining through the window. This keeps your house much cooler and saves you on your heating bill, as well as helping to reduce the amount of gas you have to buy, making it an environmentally friendly option.
So, how does double glazing work? When the windows are open, the triple pane is made of three layers. One is made of standard glass, the second has an argon gas between the glass and the argon gas filling the third pane. Because the gas acts to stop heat from escaping, this causes your house to stay warm even when the sun isn’t shining through the window.
It is important that you have your windows installed by a professional Double Glazing Tewkesbury company such as Firmfix Double Glazing as you can then ensure that the fit is correct and that the materials being used are of the highest quality. The double glazing that is installed will be much better at preventing heat loss than single glazed panes of glass.
