As one of London’s leading suppliers of double glazed windows, we know that life in London is expensive enough as it is. Food; transport; housing; it all adds up. So, is it really worth investing in new double glazed windows? The answer is yes. With insufficient windows, over 30% of your home’s heat will be allowed to escape. With energy bills rising significantly, this is no longer a loss that London homeowners can afford. This is just one reason why Londoners need to invest in better quality double glazing now to ensure a better quality of life going forward.

In 2021, the average London property spent approximately £114 a month on energy bills. However, as of this month (April 2022), the energy bill cap has risen by 54%, which means many homeowners could begin to see significant hikes in their energy bills.

Quality double glazing will be London’s greatest defence against the energy crisis. With two panes of glass separated by a chamber of argon gas, the transfusion of heat is slowed. This means that heat can’t infiltrate the home during the Summer, but more importantly, it can’t escape during the Winter. In turn, that means no more wasted energy, or having to overwork the central heating system to keep the house warm.

Double glazing increases the value of London homes

Property in London is one of the most valuable things a British person can own. In fact, the average house price in London is £667,000, compared to the wider UK average of just £274,000. If you’re thinking of one day selling your London property, investing in double glazing is a great way to ensure that you get the best possible price for your home.

It’s estimated that double-glazed windows can increase the value of your property by a whopping 10%.

Improve noise reduction in West London

Another brilliant quality of double glazing is its ability to diffuse noise. Unsurprisingly, London is the noisiest place to live in the UK. Even Ealing, which is among the five quietest boroughs in the capital, still has an average volume of 57.3dB, the same volume as the average restaurant or office.

A double-glazed window’s two panes insulate noise just as well as they insulate thermal energy. You can step out of all that London hustle and bustle, and step into a quiet and peaceful home.

Double glazing increases home security

A disturbing statistic is that the whole of London suffers around 4,000 burglaries a month. Double glazing offers an extra layer of protection against strong force and attempted break-ins. Furthermore, all of our double glazed windows come with the latest security features, including extremely force-resistant multi-point locking systems.
