Double glazing is a popular choice for homeowners who are looking to improve the energy efficiency, security and kerb appeal of their properties. With so many options available on the market, it can be quite a daunting task to know how much to expect to pay for double glazing windows.

In our guide we will take a closer look at double glazing costs as well as factors that affect the price, helping you to make an informed decision about your investment.

What is double glazing?

With a single glazed window, one glass pane serves as the barrier between your home and the outdoors, while double glazing uses two panes, as well as a layer of air for additional insulation.

This is also the case for the window frame itself – unlike single glazing, double glazed window frames provide more space to include an insulating framework.

Essentially, double glazing is effective because while glass is a good conductor of heat, air is not. The air pocket between the two panes of glass therefore creates a seal against the outdoors, reducing the transfer of heat.

Why should you invest in double glazing?

There are several advantages to investing in double glazing products for your home. Benefits include:

  • Energy efficiency– Double glazed windows help to stop heat escaping from your home, they are extremely energy-efficient and they work as an effective insulator to help retain heat in your home. Not only will double glazing help to make your home a more comfortable temperature all year round, but it will also help to save you money on your energy bills by reducing your energy consumption. At DW Windows, we fill the air gap between the two panes of glass with argon gas which improves insulation, allowing us to achieve A-rated energy efficiency as standard.
  • High security- Double glazed windows and doors are extremely strong and difficult to break, protecting you and your family from any unwanted visitors.
  • Acoustic insulation- Not only does double glazing reduce your energy consumption but it also provides noise reduction, and is proven to reduce external noise by 20-65%.
  • Adds property value- Double glazing can enhance any type of property and can also add property value as it makes your home more attractive to potential buyers.
  • Low maintenance- Another reason why you should invest in double glazed windows and doors is the fact that they are extremely low maintenance. You can spend less time cleaning and more time enjoying your new windows and doors.

What factors affect the cost of double glazing?

The cost of double glazing is dependent on several factors including size, material and style. Depending on what size you want your new windows or doors to be will determine how expensive they are. Another factor that can affect the cost of your double glazing is the material that you pick. uPVC is the most popular material as well as the most cost-effective, however other materials like aluminium are also available on the market.
