Double glazing used to be an optional luxury but today, it’s very much the standard expected in modern homes. That’s why we offer such an expansive range of products, including UPVC and aluminium windows, conservatories, bi-fold doors and composite front doors. Future Windows supplies in different styles and configurations, and all products come fitted with high quality double glazing to keep your home more energy efficient.
For the benefit of Oxted customers who may still feel a little hesitant because of the extra expense, we look at the most important benefits double glazing can bring to a property.
We have our own factory in Horley that manufactures windows, doors and conservatories. If we can be of any help to you, pick up the phone and call the friendly team at Future Windows on 01293 774223. We would genuinely love to hear from you.
So, why choose double glazing?
Did you know that a property loses up to 70% of its heat with single glazing? Because it has a layer of inert gas between two panes of glass, double glazing traps warmth in the home. Our UPVC and aluminium windows use modern materials and chambered designs to reduce heat loss. When you think about how chilly it can get when the colder months roll into the Oxted area, this can be a very appealing benefit!
Our conservatories, and our bi-fold doors and composite front doors, all have excellent energy efficiency.
The more panes of glass a product has, the more heat it can potentially lose. That’s why double glazing is especially important when installed for conservatories, which have huge potential to let out heat and can become so cold that they’re either unusable or incredibly expensive to heat in winter.
Energy doesn’t come cheap. Most Oxted homeowners will know to turn off appliances when not in use and to only have heating on when it’s essential. Why opt for single glazing when having UPVC or aluminium windows, conservatories, bi-fold doors or composite front doors installed? By making your property so much easier to warm with double glazing, you save a significant amount of money on your annual heating bills.
Single glazing is cheaper, but this makes it a false economy.
Sure, you pay less initially but the money you save on energy bills and the value you can add to an Oxted property makes double glazing a more cost-effective investment regardless of the type of property you own. In fact, statistics show that the average detached home with A-rated double glazing saves £160.00 per year more than a single-glazed property.
Another area where UPVC windows, aluminium windows, doors and conservatories excel is with noise insulation. Most homeowners focus on reducing the amount of sound coming into a property. Playing children, loud cars and nearby roadworks all have an impact which double glazing can reduce, but some of our Oxted customers worry more about sound leaving their properties!
Those with musical hobbies, and those who love to entertain or who have a home entertainment system they like to play at a higher-than-usual volume, can worry less about receiving noise complaints if they choose double glazing for their new windows, conservatories, bi-fold doors or composite doors.
Whether you just want good sleep or not to antagonise the neighbours, double glazing is always a great choice.
Burglars operating around Oxted and the surrounding areas will exploit any weaknesses that they can find when looking for a property to break into. In many cases, they will target older windows and doors with single glazing and vulnerable timber frames. Many of our customers opt for double glazing because it is much harder to break into and this deters intruders.
UPVC and aluminium windows, and all double-glazed products from our factory, are renowned for strength and security.
When you think of how attractive all the traits above are for homeowners, it’s easy to see why double glazing significantly increases the value of Oxted properties. Not only do you save money on heating bills and enjoy a cosier, quieter and safer life, but you could also recoup your investment should you ever decide to sell and put your house on the market. House hunters will only consider properties with double glazing.
Double-glazed windows, bi-fold doors and composite front doors are a big draw because of the quality of our manufacturing. Conservatories tend to be popular because of the amount of extra living space they can add to any Oxted home.
