How can I make my home winter-proof?

Making your home winter-proof can be simple and easy. Although there are traditional ways of saving your money on heating such as turning off your heating and shutting the doors in rooms you don’t use, there is even more efficient way. It’s simple windows and doors upgrade!

If you live in house with single-glazed windows, you will find it difficult to keep your home warm at all times this winter. However, by upgrading your windows to double or even triple glazing you will benefit from great house insulation and reduced bills. What’s more, a simple door upgrade to one of our composite doors can help you save money.

What’s the difference between double and triple glazing?

The difference between double and triple glazing is the simple fact that triple glazing contains 3 panes of glass instead of 2 (double glazing). Although both options significantly improve your home’s energy efficiency, there are few factors that differentiate one from another. One of them is cost.

Triple Glazing is usually more expensive than double glazing but it’ll certainly pay back more in terms of energy efficiency. It’s generally acknowledged that triple glazing is better than double glazing as it not only provides greater efficiency but also reduces noise. So if you want to make your home winter-proof or simply want to upgrade your single glazed windows to get rid of cold spots and noise outside, triple glazing from Andy Glass Windows is just what you need.

The main reason why you should consider upgrading to triple glazing is the improved performance of windows, added thermal insulation and enhanced security that come with such investment. However, those are not the only benefits of triple glazed windows, the list goes on and on. Some of the other benefits of triple glazed upgrade include:

  • Great temperature balance – Warm winters, cool summers
