Did you know that the average UK home spends a whopping £1,254 a year on their dual fuel bill? And, many homeowners spend a lot more than this.
With the current climate being so unpredictable, who knows when the cold weather will end from one winter to the next? This means there has never been a better time to invest in triple glazing for your home.
Not yet convinced?
Below are some reasons why you should choose triple glazing for your home in Hereford.
What is Triple Glazing?
As the name suggests, triple glazing uses three panels of glass, rather than two, that are sealed within a frame. Between each pane of glass is a pocket of air or inert gas such as argon, which helps to insulate your home and reduce noise.
As triple glazing uses three panels, its effectiveness is far greater than that of traditional double glazing.
In fact, you may be surprised to hear that double glazed windows that are showing signs of disrepair can be responsible for up to 20% of the heat that you lose from your home.
What are the Benefits of Triple Glazing?
There are many benefits to having triple glazed windows or doors fitted in your home, including:
· The Ability to Reduce Heat Loss
Triple Glazing has an average U-value of 1.0 W/m2K, making it around 40% more thermal efficient than “A” rated double glazing, and 60% more efficient than “C” rated double glazing. Therefore, if you are looking to increase the retention of heat in your home, then triple glazing could be the right choice for you.
· The Ability to Effectively Block Out Noise
If you live on a busy road, near a school, or if you simply want to enjoy a completely quiet and tranquil home life, triple glazing can block out external noise much more effectively than double glazing can.
· Triple Glazing is More Cost Efficient
Even though the cost of purchasing and installing triple glazed windows is around 20% more expensive than double glazed windows, you will recoup your investment in other ways.
This is predominantly in what you will save on your energy bills, but also if you want to sell your property in the future, as triple glazing will increase its overall value.
· Triple Glazing is Safer
Sadly, in today’s day and age you need to ensure the security of your home and the safety of your family more than ever before. Fortunately, triple glazing can help as it is much harder to break than double glazed windows due to the extra pane of glass that it contains.
Furthermore, if you have new triple glazed windows installed in your home, they will have key locking security handles, as well as the ability to be connected to your home’s smart security system.
