Double-glazed windows are a primary choice for homeowners looking to improve their home’s energy efficiency and keep their home warmer for longer. It’s a simple concept – two panes of glass instead of one – but it provides a range of benefits including better insulation, security, and reduced noise levels. But how much does it cost to get double-glazed windows?
In this blog post, we’ll look at the cost of double-glazed windows and explore whether the investment is worth it.
Double glazing costs:
The cost of double-glazing windows varies on a range of different factors, including:
- Size and type of the windows
- Complexity of the installation
- Type of glass (Low-E glass/self-cleaning glass compared to standard glass)
- Frames (uPVC/aluminium/timber frames)
While the initial cost of double-glazing windows may seem high, it’s important to consider the long-term savings that can result from increased energy efficiency.
Are double-glazed windows worth the cost?
Absolutely. An initial obstacle for homeowners buying double glazing is the upfront cost, but there are several important factors that make double glazing a worthwhile investment:
- Energy savings – Double glazing can reduce heat loss from your windows by up to 50%, which can lead to significant savings on energy bills over time.
- Improved comfort – Double glazing can help to keep your home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer, making it a more comfortable place to live.
- Increased home value – Due to the above reasons, double glazing can add value to your home and make it more attractive to potential buyers.
Should I replace my 20-year-old double-glazed windows?
If your existing double glazing is over 20 years old, it may be worth replacing it with newer, more energy-efficient windows. While this can be an expensive process, the long-term energy savings can make it a worthwhile investment.
The average lifespan of double-glazed windows
The average lifespan of double-glazed windows can vary depending on the quality of the materials used and how well they are maintained. However, most double-glazed windows are designed to last for at least 20 years – or even longer with proper maintenance and care.
Is it cheaper to replace all my windows at once?
If you’re considering replacing your windows, it may be more cost-effective to replace them all at once rather than doing it piecemeal. This is because many double-glazing companies offer discounts for bulk orders, which can help to reduce the overall cost.
