Double glazed windows are windows that have air or Argon, which is an inert gas, between the two panes of glass. The ones with Argon are better windows to keep your home heated and cooled. The Argon is more dense than regular air, which provides a better insulation.
Also, the pane of glass that faces the interior has a special coating on it. This coating reflects heat in the winter and reduces the heat coming into your home during the summer.
The quality of film used on the window makes a difference as well. Double glazing offers extra protection by reducing the amount of UV rays that come into your home, which will fade your furniture. These windows just use two sheets of the glazing, which add insulation without eliminating transparency.
Double glazed windows can save you as much as 50 percent on your energy bill.
Having double glazed windows offer you one more level of protection from intruders as well.
Increased home security, being cozy and saving money on your energy bills are all excellent reasons for choosing double glazed windows in your home.
