Double glazing can make a big difference in terms of comfort and lower fuel bills, but it needs to improve a building’s ambience without spoiling its appearance. Since
means replacing the window sash but maintaining the existing window frame, this comes with a major downside. Even though
has lower upfront costs, it means that the frame remains the same. Old existing frames especially wooden ones often show signs of rot, not only compromising the frame’s structural integrity but also its energy efficiency.
on the other hand means replacing the inefficient old sash and frame with great new ones for improved energy efficiency and overall health of the building. As a bonus, double glazing adds an element of soundproofing because good double-glazed units reduce noise penetration in the same way as they do with temperature.
