Double glazing

posted 14 Feb 2010, 01:01 by Toby Roscoe

Installing double glazing can cut heat loss through windows by half. If you can't afford to replace all the windows, why not choose the rooms that cost you the most to heat?

::  How it works ::

Double glazing works by trapping air between two panes of glass creating an insulating barrier that reduces heat loss, noise and condensation.

:: The savings ::

Double glazing cuts heat lost through windows by half and can save £80 - £100 a year on your heating bills. Double glazing, can save a household about three quarters of a tonne of CO2 a year.

:: How the savings add up ::

If everyone in the UK who needed double glazing fitted it we'd save the equivalent of 800,000 households' CO2 emissions
