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 windows, aluminium windows, conservatories, aluminium doors and composite front doors. Future Windows supplies in different styles and configurations, including bi-fold doors, patio doors and French doors. All products come fitted with high-quality double-glazed units 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-glazed windows 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.
Did you know that a property loses up to 70% of its heat with single glazing? However, double-glazed units have a layer of inert gas between two panes of glass to trap warmth in the home. Our UPVC windows 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 in, this can be a very appealing benefit!
Our conservatories and doors also come with double glazed panels. This ensures excellent energy efficiency for all of the following:
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 your property makes double-glazed windows 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. Thicker glazing can reduce noise entering and leaving your property, including noise from:
Oxted homeowners who are concerned about the amount of noise in their homes can worry less about receiving noise complaints if they choose double-glazed 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 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-glazed units because they are much harder to break into and this deters intruders.
UPVC windows and aluminium windows, and all double-glazed products from our factory, are renowned for strength and security. This includes our aluminium doors, patio doors and French doors as well as all other styles.
When you think of how attractive all the traits above are for homeowners, it’s easy to see why double-glazed windows significantly increase 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.
