Everyone knows the benefits of double glazing; heat retention, condensation prevention, lower energy bills etc, but of course these are all winter benefits. Few people give much thought to the advantages of installing new or replacement windows in the summer.
Did you know that double glazed windows can reduce the amount of UV light entering your home by over 70%. This is important because not only can this make rooms uncomfortably hot in those rare summer months, but it is the UV light which causes the fading of furnishings, walls, pictures and can generally spoil your interiors.
Obviously new glazing won?t stop the fading process, but it can considerably slow it down. As if you needed any more reasons to replace or install new windows, this statistic presents a win-win situation all year round!
