There is nothing better than a lovely older home with character in Winchester, except an older home that has double glazing in Winchester. Keeping out the weather helps to keep your home more comfortable year-round. Double glazing in Winchester is one of the easiest ways to add a little more preventive to your home against the weather.
Older Homes are Grand
You often hear “they just don’t build them the way they used to” when people are discussing older homes and while it is true they are built well, there was some room for improvement. Turn of the century homes that were built in the early 1900’s or before, do not have adequate insulative properties to begin with because insulation was not a consideration in those days. They also tend to be a bit on the draftee side because the windows and doors were not built to be highly functional. Today, thanks to new technologies, windows can easily seal out the weather and keep the drafts out.
How Does Double Glazing Work?
Double glazing is an ideal method of providing a layer of insulative properties to your home. Double glazed windows offer:
* Two layers of glass
* Gas trapped in between
The two layers of glass with the gas trapped in between work as an insulator against both the heat of summer and the cold of winter. They are sealed all the way around to prevent any draft at all from getting in and from your heat or cool escaping to the outdoors. They work just like single pane windows but with a more energy efficient result. With double glazing, you can reduce energy costs and keep your home far more comfortable.
