The rising prices of gas and electricity have had a massive effect on our energy bills, doubling since 2004 and expected to double again by 2020. All major energy companies have been increasing their prices too, so there’s little reprieve for customers.
As fuel bills rise, the need for insulation is more and more apparent. Insulation takes many forms, from wall cavity to loft lagging. But double glazing is one of the most popular ways of insulating the home, retaining heat in the property and ensuring it’s not lost through the windows.
Double glazing London is extremely important and with new windows you can cut bills by over £300 a year. It’s now very popular all over the UK but especially in the capital, where there were over 8,000 searches online for double glazing London in the month of May.
London house prices are notoriously high compared to the rest of the country and it seems homeowners don’t want to lose value because of inefficient homes. Which is why double glazing is such a popular option, improving efficiency and creating a fantastic aesthetic appeal for the windows.
The efficiency of properties is measured using something known as the Energy Performance Certificate. Ratings range from A to G, with A being the most efficient. With upgraded windows you’ll increase the rating of your home and with it, the value of your property.
But how will double glazing London help to reduce your bills?
Double glazing is manufactured by two panes of glass separated by an energy efficient spacer, usually Argon, Xenon or Krypton. This means heat can’t pass through the unit and as a result is trapped in your home. Consequently, you don’t need to turn up the thermostat to stay warm.
With double glazing you have the option with how the units look too. There are three main options for the frame material used: aluminium, hardwood or uPVC. uPVC is by far the most popular choice, being cheap, durable and weather resistant. In fact the popular uPVC material is used for conservatories and doors too.
With uPVC you don’t need to have white frames either and can choose woodgrain effects to resemble real wood for your double glazing London too. This gives you a chance to reduce bills and ensure a great finish at the same time.
For double glazing London, make sure you compare three or four quotes from companies in the city. This will help you get the best price and ensure a reputable professional too.
