Double glazing vs single glazing
Double glazed windows are far better than their single glazed counterpart in every aspect. A double glazed window has two panes of glass instead of one, which leaves a pocket of argon gas between them both. Single glazed windows easily allow heat to escape as there’s no argon gas to stop it, which causes your house to be colder. A single glazed window is also more prone to cracking or shattering as there’s not an extra pane of glass to strengthen the window.
Single glazed windows are also more prone to condensation, which can eventually lead to more serious issues for your house and health. In a modern world, there is no place for single glazed windows as they’re outdated in every way. You might argue that they’re cheaper than double glazed windows, but unlike double glazed windows, regular windows won’t save you money on your energy bills or add value to your home. If you have the choice, you should always opt for double glazing!
