How to Keep Your Wellington Home Warm & Dry


Winters in Wellington can get pretty cold and windy. For the sake of your home, and health make sure your home is warm and dry. As well as causing illnesses a cold or damp house will create mould which can damage the walls and structure of your home . In order to keep your house warm and dry you need to have quality heating and insulation systems in place.

One of the best ways to make your house warm & dry is to have your windows and doors double glazed. Double glazed windows trap a layer of air between two layers of glass. This helps keep the heat inside your home, keeping it warm and dry in winter and cool in summer. Even the smallest gaps between doors or windows can cause your home to lose a lot of heat so make sure these gaps are insulated.

Properly insulating your home also means that your heating and energy bills will reduce, saving you money in the long term. Thinking of insulating the windows & doors of your Wellington home? Read more about the great benefits of double glazed or retrofitted windows below:

Reduces noise

Installing double glazing in Wellington homes creates a barrier between the internal environment of your home and the noise outside. Noise finds it hard to filter through the double layer of glass and the layer of air, which results in significant noise reduction.

Minimises condensation

Condensation happens when moisture from the outside your home comes into contact with a warm surface. This moisture turns to water droplets which turns into frost during the winters. This frost causes a reduction in room temperature, making it much colder inside. Double glazed windows and doors prevent condensation making your home a much drier and warmer place to be.

Better security for your home

Double glazed windows are proven to be an effective deterrent against intruders. They are much harder to break than single pane windows and even if the windows are broken; the shards of glass will stay intact which discourages intruders from entering through the windows. Investing in double glazed windows and doors for your Wellington home or business provides peace of mind, a warm home and lower energy bills.
