Double glazing helps to trap the perfect amount of heat inside your home. Your home is protected from extreme heat on the warmer days, minimising the amount of heat that can get in.

In the winter, less heat escapes your home when you upgrade to double glazing. Due to this, you won't need to rely on having your heating turned up so high, saving you money on your winter heating bills.

Condensation can cause more serious problems, such as damp and mold. Luckily, double-glazed windows reduce the amount of condensation in your home, reduces the risk of these problems developing. This helps to reduce any related health problems, as well as aesthetically looking much nicer.
