The right windows style will not only transform the interior and exterior of your home but will also improve energy efficiency and comfort at the same time. The team at Aacme Glass have put together a guide on everything you need to know when choosing the right windows for your property.
Windows are one aspect of a home design that really can make or break the style and aesthetic of your home. Whether you are extending, renovating, starting from scratch or simply want an upgrade, getting the right style and design can make your home pop and give your home instant curb appeal.
When choosing glass it really is important to take into account the thermal performance and energy efficiency, how much light you would like to bring into your home and also how much privacy you would like. Here is a little round-up of everything you will need to consider:
- Design Style
For many households installing double glazing will mean smaller energy bills and a warmer home. It has a range of other advantages too including keeping your property better insulated, you will hear less noise from the outside, you will reduce condensation on the inside of your windows and it will also heighten security as it is a lot more difficult to break than single glazing.
Why Do I Need New Windows and Glazing?
With so many different windows and glazing on the market, it is important to have a clear idea of the problems you would like your new windows to tackle. Here are some of the main reasons why people choose to replace their windows and glazing:
Draught: A constant draught can cause serious discomfort in your home. Old, improperly installed or poorly maintained windows can lead to cold air coming into your home which can cause health problems and an uncomfortable atmosphere. Extra glazing can help ensure your glazing is snugly fitted into your frames.
Faulty Windows: If your windows are difficult to open and close or you are not able to lock them, it can cause vulnerability. This is a key indicator that you will need to replace your windows and glazing.
High Energy Bills: The reality of eye-watering high heating bills is enough to prompt many people to upgrade their windows to a more energy-efficient type. Doing this will save you so much money in the long run and is a cost-effective solution to high bills.
Modernisation: A lot of the time people want to replace their windows and glazing simply to modernise the look and feel of their homes and also to add value to their property. Upgrading to double glazing can add a lot of value to your home’s resale price.
Why Do I Need Double Glazing?
Double glazed windows are one of the top property improvements chosen by property owners as they keep homes warmer in the winter and cooler in the hotter months. Double Glazing also reduces outside noise which is a huge benefit if you are living in a city or for example near an airport or motorway. The main three reasons people switch to double glazing is the prevention of heat loss through the window, it stops draughts through the window and the frame and it works as an insulator the same way a cavity wall insulation would.
Double Glazed windows have two panes close together with an airtight gap in the middle. This trapped air cannot circulate which reduces the rate of heat loss from inside a home or property. With less heat being able to leave the middle of the window pane the room will stay warmer for longer. Many double glazed windows are manufactured with PVCu or aluminium frames, which are both durable, aesthetic and well structured.
