Thinking about double glazing but not sure whether you should take the plunge? Here in New Zealand, these types of windows are becoming increasingly popular, and come with a wide range of benefits for any homeowner.
In fact, double glazing is becoming mandatory for many new homes in colder parts of the country, because of their insulation properties and thermal advantages. Here are some of the benefits of having double glazing if you live in Wellington.
1. Increase the price of your property
Although many people think that installing new windows in their property can be expensive, having double glazing can provide you with a huge return on your investment. In particular, these windows can increase the value of your property and instantly transform the look and feel of any home. If you are thinking about double glazing now, you will thank yourself in the future if you ever decide to put your property on the market.
2. Insulate your property more effectively
Double glazing involves two individual panes of glass which are separated by a small space. This separation provides a property with increased insulation – ideal during the colder months. For older homes, these new windows can instantly keep you and your family well-insulated throughout the year, and because you will be spending less on your utility bills, you should notice a considerable saving over time.
But that’s not all! These windows are easy to open and allow plenty of natural light to fill a property, instantly opening up the space. In the summer, you will be able to open the windows to allow fresh air into your property – helping you and your family to stay cool.
3. Increased noise protection
As well as the heat insulation advantages they provide, double glazed windows in Wellington can provide you with additional noise protection if you live in a busy area. The gap between the two panes in the window can be ideal for a homeowner who lives by a noisy road or in the vicinity of shops or a school. Incorporating double glazing can provide you with a more peaceful environment.
4. Different styles
Many people make the misconception that double glazing windows look the same. But that’s not the case at all. In fact, there are a wide range of different styles and designs that can complement your property – including any period detail that might feature in your home.
A professional window installation company will provide you with more information about the different styles available to you, and you will be able to choose a style based on your budget and the design of your home.
