If you’re looking for double glazing installers to help fit a new set of windows and doors, you may be wondering how long it could take. Fortunately, it won’t take long at all. Generally, it can take as little as 1-2 hours to fit a double glazed pane. However, it’s important to understand that the nature of window fitting is very dependent on a number of circumstances.
The age of your home and original windows, access to your property and how the old features were fitted can all affect the overall time required. Not to worry, in most instances, an original window or door is easily removed and the fitting process can be carried out efficiently.
What Is Double Glazing?
Double glazing is a type of window or window pane that has been developed for a few decades now. It capitalises on the thermal efficiency of trapping a layer of argon or xenon gas between two high-quality single panes. This type of property feature was made popular in the 1980s and since then has become a staple of most British homes.
Can You Install A Cat Door In Double Glazing?
You can install a door for your furry friend in a double glazed pane. However, this type of adaptation is not possible on an existing feature. Fortunately, there are a number of options to help remedy this. Most double glazing installers will be more than happy to measure up your current pane. This way, they can have a custom replacement made to fit in its place.
Why Is Double Better Than Single Glazing?
Double glazing is better than single glazing for several reasons. The first is the improvement in thermal efficiency and the subsequent effect this can have on your energy bills. Classic, single-pane windows are notorious for allowing warm air to escape. The more warmth you lose, the harder the boiler works. As a result, you’ll require more energy to power your boiler and cost yourself more money in the long run. Secondly, double glazing has more insulation. As a result, it suppresses sound more. If you live near a busy road or have noisy neighbours, then double glazing installers could help improve your quality of life, and save you money.
