Virtually every newly built house in Aldershot has double glazing fitted as standard and most other houses have had some kinds of double glazing fitted at some point. This is for very simple reasons. double glazing insulates a house and keeps in the heat.
Double glazing works by, in effect, actually giving your home three layers of protection. While single glazing will have just the one pane of glass between your home and the outside world, with double glazing, you will get a pane of glass, a trapped layer of air and another pane of glass, making it very good at insulating. Trapped layers of air are an incredible effective way of insulating anything, which is why of you wear several light layers on a cold day you will be warmer than wearing just one, because they trap layers of air between them.
In order for double glazing to insulate effectively, they must be air tight. A drying agent is used when the windows are manufactured, to ensure that no moisture exists between the panes of glass. If you see condensation on the inside of double glazed windows, it means that the seal has been broken. A broken seal makes it impossible for your windows to keep warm and cool air from escaping from your home in Aldershot.
Single pane windows are notoriously inefficient when it comes to insulating your home in Aldershot.

Double glazing significantly reduces this heat transfer - on average, it can save you about 12 percent on your annual energy costs. This means that your savings will pay for the cost of buying double glazed windows very quickly.
Double glazing is environmentally friendly. Home heating and cooling is responsible for about 28 percent of all carbon dioxide emissions - double glazed windows serve to significantly reduce these emissions, limiting your home's impact on the environment. Combined with the significant reduction in energy loss, this makes replacing your single pane windows with double glazed windows an excellent choice for your home in Aldershot.

Let's take a look at the main components of a double glazed surface area.
Since glass was first invented, people have loved its functionality and beauty. By keeping the elements out and letting the light in, glass provides the perfect visual solution for your home in Aldershot. The glass used in double glazing needs to be a very specific kind to ensure that maximum insulation, noise reduction and light is achieved. Glass will generally need to be 4mm thick. Glass may be clear, tinted or coated, depending on the specific function required of the double glazing.
Tinted glass undergoes a specific treatment that allows the glass to cope with thermal stress, storms and to encourage the reabsorption of heat for highly effective insulation. Coated glass for the purposes of double glazing involves a polyester film that is placed over the glass surface. Double glazed windows that are coated may have a reflective finish or a mirror finish.
The two glass panes are separated by a small segment that allows the air between the two panes to be sealed and to become a vacuum. When a vacuum exists, heat will not travel and disperse - this is how double glazed windows prevent the home from becoming too cold. The spacers themselves are made from non-conductive materials such as foam to prevent heat escaping from the window.
Building the Double Glazed Window
Double glazed windows are customized to fit the particular space requirements. It is also possible to purchase factory standard sizes. The double glazed panes are created and then spacers for each panel are cut and fit to the correct size. The glass panes are carefully cleaned with a special fluid that ensures the surface remains clear. Then, an adhesive is placed on both opposing sides of the spacer and the glass panels are attached. The outside edges of the panel are sealed using silicon adhesive. The glass is coated or finished according to the manufacturing specifications.
