What is Double Glazing?

Double glazing refers to a window that has two panes of glass. The main component of the window is the double glazed sealed unit, also known as an insulated glass unit (IGU) which sits in a frame of uPVC, aluminium or timber.

The IGU comprises of two sheets of glass separated by a spacer bar to create an air gap which is filled with an insulating gas. A bit like a sandwich of glass bread with a filling of air.
The primary benefit of double glazing is thermal insulation – to retain heat in a room whilst stopping cold air entering from outside to make the room more energy-efficient.

Double glazing makes such a difference to energy-efficiency that building regulations were set in 2002, to say that all replacement windows must be a minimum double glazed C rated – unless the property is a listed building or in a conservation area.

What are the benefits of double glazing?

Thermal transfer, solar gain, dew point, sound frequency and conduction - what all this information means in reality is that double glazing will:

  • Keep more external noise out of your home
  • Retain more heat and keep your home warmer
  • Reduce condensation on your windows
  • Reduce the amount of energy you use to heat your home
  • Reduce your energy bills
  • Add value to your home
