Their mission is to bring you a better view through premium windows and doors. One of their most prolific and popular products is the double glazed windows. Not familiar? Never fear, they’re here to provide a 101 course on everything that you need to know. Read on for more details:
First things first… what the heck are we talking about? Double glazed windows use multiple panes of glass when engineering any window. The panes of glass still have a separation between them, a thin layer of glass or even air. It’s a specific and valuable process because after allocating the right amount of glass or air in between the panes, they’re then fitted into window frames, which are customized and a little bit wider.
The benefits are many, but the first and foremost is your energy savings. Bonus? You’ll avoid much more environmental noise, thanks to the multiple panes, so if you live in a metropolitan area, this is a safe bet for you to sleep through the night. If you live in an area that’s particularly cold, we’ll tout those benefits as well. That aforementioned air or glass gap really acts as an additional layer of insulation, keeping the cold air out and the warm air in.
You may be thinking, “that’s great for the fall and winter, but what about the hot months when I really need that ventilation!” Again, don’t fret. Double glazed windows have a duel power in that they keep hot air out during the summer and warmer months as well. All of these add up to smiling faces and more dollars in your pocket when it comes to any of your energy bills.
Trying to stump us? Maybe you’re thinking about moisture. Surely that could get in, right? Nope! The double glazing design reduces condensation, which means you’ll have to worry much less about mold. Thinking about noise? Nope! Double glazing reduces higher frequency noises, so you won’t even have to hear what your family members are saying just rooms away.
So, where to start? Speaking subjectively from the perspective of the Valley Windows team, we strongly recommend that you reach out! Email, phone, in-person – we’re here. We can answer any questions that you have about the windows and doors that will maximize your curb appeal and minimize your stress. Be sure to check out our blog for more information.
