Double Glazing Inverness Windows Can Make Your Home More Comfortable

By Neil Fraser

Keeping a house warm during an Inverness winter can be a big expense. Wherever you live if you find your heating bills are costing more than you want to spend you might consider taking action to bring those bills down to a manageable level. One of the most cost effective measures you can take is double glazing Inverness windows.

Double glazed windows are not rocket science. They consist of two panes of glass with air or some sort of gas in between. The air acts as an insulator. It’s like the way a down comforter or a puffy jacket is extra warm. The air spaces provide more insulation than the fabric alone.

A double glazed window retains heat and keeps out cold and moisture. It does this much more effectively than a standard single paned window can do. More than half of the heat lost from a house goes out through the single pane windows.

Of course people have always found ways to try to keep the heat from leaking out the window. Big heavy curtains have been in use for centuries. The main problem with curtains is that in addition to keeping out some of the cold draughts they also keep out the light.

Curtains block out the light. Then you have to use electricity. Why use a primitive solution when there are better solutions available? Double glazing isn’t a high tech solution, just a practical one.

People who live in houses with double glazed windows notice a difference almost immediately. The house feels warmer and less damp. The homeowner will notice a difference when the first heating bill arrives. After the installation of double glazed windows heating bills drop by as much as ten or twelve percent.

People who live with double glazed windows notice a second advantage. The house is quieter. The insulation that blocks out clod and moisture also keeps out noise. Traffic, neighborhood parties and the sounds of children playing can become much less annoying.

Some people live next to grouchy neighbors who can’t stand the least bit of noise. Folks who install double glazed windows find that they can cheer for their favorite team, sing and dance and carry on lively, full throated debates without inspiring complaints. Double paned windows keep noise in as well as out.

Even though it will save money in the long run installing double glazed windows is an investment that should be treated seriously. You will be hiring somebody to work on your home. You want the job done right so that you won’t have problems later on.

Be sure that your installer is aware of regulations regarding energy efficiency as well as all the other codes and regulations. Be sure that he knows what materials are most suitable for your project especially if you live in an historic building.

Be sure to ask for names of other homeowners who have used the company you are considering. Talk to them and ask to see the work they had done. Get estimates from several companies. Compare not only prices but materials, time frames and guarantees. Double glazing Inverness windows can add to the quality of your life. Make sure it is done by a licensed installer with a good reputation.
