If you have yet to replace your softwood windows with UPVC double-glazed units, you are certainly in the minority. Aside from the very obvious maintenance issues, single-pane windows experience high heat loss levels, as well as causing condensation, and here are just a few of the benefits you can enjoy when you install UPVC double glazed windows.
- Huge Energy Saving – Some UK homeowners report as much as 80% energy saving after installing replacement windows, but at the very least, you should see a sizeable reduction in your quarterly fuel bills. Talk to one of the double glazing companies in Kilmarnock and they would be happy to pay you a visit and discuss the many design options.
- Boost Home Security – Installing UPVC replacement windows sends out a very strong message to burglars, as they all know only too well that forced entry is practically impossible. Toughened safety glass and locks on all openings means that no one is going to attempt forced entry, which is the very best deterrent there is.
- Reduced Outside Noise – There are always external sounds in a residential area; dogs barking, the neighbour’s lawn mower and the local kids playing football, and once you have double glazing fitted, you will be surprised at how quiet things become. If you live near a railway line or a busy road, double glazing will greatly reduce the background noise that you have got used to over the years.
There are no off-the-shelf solutions with UPVC replacement windows, and each unit is made to very precise dimensions to perfectly fit the opening, and with a wide range of styles and openings, you can select a design that complements your home.
