Double glazing prices vary from company to company, so it’s always recommended to compare at least three or four quotes in order to get the best deal available.
Double glazing is easily one of the UK’s most popular insulating materials, but many people feel good advice is hard to come by. This leaves many entering the market with misguided ideas on double glazing prices and the benefits of replacing windows.
Double glazing windows have become very popular for several reasons. Not only do units cut heat loss, therefore reducing your energy bills, but added benefits include less condensation, a warmer home and fewer carbon emissions released.
However, 15% of those surveyed by consumer watchdog Which? said they wouldn’t consider switching their windows for energy efficient upgrades but they were unsure this was likely to cost them. In an effort to help homeowners, Which? have compiled a double glazing prices guide with the costs provided by 15 companies.
Of course, it’s not as easy as looking at the price and putting that straight to your home as property’s range and so will the double glazing price.
Take a look at the double glazed windows prices below.
