What is double glazing?

Double glazing is one of the most widely used types of glazing across the UK. Comprised of two panes of glass separated by a spacer bar, a double glazed unit uses the insulating space between panes to slow the escape of warmth from a building.

With over 20 years’ experience, at Albany Windows we provide high quality double glazing for a range of properties across Cheltenham, Gloucester and the surrounding areas. We install energy-efficient, long-lasting, and attractive uPVC and aluminium windows, doors, and conservatories that will perfectly suit your home. Whether your home is a thatched cottage in the Cotswolds or you are looking for something more modern for your renovation; we have a range of double glazing options that will match your home improvement needs.

Benefits of double glazing from Albany

Energy efficient windows

4-6mm thick double glazing unit with a U Value of 1.4 W/m2K keeps heat in a home for longer using less energy. It also provides excellent thermal insulation and thermal efficiency.

Solar control

The innovative coating reflects heat in summer as the outer pane of glass limits solar heat gain but absorbs heat in winter providing a comfortable temperature all year round

Reduce heat loss

The primary benefit of double glazing is that it can reduce your energy consumption and save you up to £160 on the cost of heating bills

Combat condensation

Reduced risk of interior condensation with new windows for a healthier interior living environment

Improved living standard

Makes your home less likely to experience problems such as damp, mould and draughts from an air gap

Wide rang of options

All of our double glazing can be easily integrated with other types of glass options such as: self-cleaning glazing, solar control glazing, patterned glazing, etched glazing, and glazing in a range of colours to find you the perfect fit

Noise reduction

Double glass panes reduce external noise pollution

Enhanced energy efficiency

At Albany Windows, we use Planitherm Total+ low emissivity glass in our double glazed units because of its exceptional thermal performance and energy rating. This type of double glazing achieves an ultra-low U Value of 1.4 W/m2K, thus keeping your Cheltenham home significantly warmer for longer and potentially saving you money on the cost of your energy bills.

Planitherm Total+ double glazing also uses an innovative coating to reflect excess heating in the summer but retain heat in the winter, making it perfect for naturally regulating temperature in a home.

How do I know when my double glazing needs replacing?

There are several things to look out for in your double glazing to make sure that you do not need any replacement windows. If you are starting to feel draughts inside your home then this could mean that the seals around your window frames have started to fall apart. Starting to notice an increase in your energy bills? There could be a variety of factors for this but it might be a good idea to take a look at your double glazing.

Condensation can be another sign of your double glazing needing to be replaced, as it shows a sign that there is a possible leak between the panes of glass. Similarly, if there is any water leaking inside the window from rainfall then it is likely a failed seal that is the problem. If your double glazing windows are on the older side, for example, 15-20 years old, then it would be a more cost-effective option to simply have them replaced.

Can you fix condensation in double glazing?

You can use a dehumidifier that will help to gather the warm air causing the condensation and relocate it into a storage tank. Dehumidifiers can, however, cause the air to become dry and can be expensive to run regularly.

Another short-term fix would be to use a dryer of some variety, such as a hairdryer. This can help to serve the same purpose as utilising the warm air feature in a car to draw out the moisture. In terms of more permanent fixes, replacing the seals on your windows may do the trick, or you may well have to end up replacing your double glazing entirely.
