Our windows are facing many different challenges throughout their life time, and one of these are cold and hot weather that can influence your overall home temperature. This is especially true if you do not have high-quality windows of proper material and type that will stand the weather and give you full protection. The best way to avoid such problems is using emergency glazing. So what are the benefits of emergency glazing?
Condensation can be a huge problem for the majority of homes, especially if the windows are not done right. The condensation emerges once a moist air lands on a cold surface and you should be careful about condensation as it can produce moisture and then mold, which can destroy the wood and make your pane rotten. This can lead to a serious problem of a mold that can infest your house and damage the health of you and your family and you definitely do not want that. For that reason, emergency glazing will protect your windows from the possible condensation and give you safe environment to live in, plus your windows will stay healthy and efficient. In case your home is in the area with high humidity, this is your choice that will be very efficient and cost-effective, especially in the long run.
We all like to see a reduced electricity bill that we need to pay, but do you know that you can reduce your bill at least 40%? When it comes to energy efficiency, we must say that emergency glazing can play a significant role in decreasing your electricity bill. Why is that, when it is a simple double pane window basically? Simply because the proper glazing can trap up to 40% heat energy during the winter if placed right. Due to double layers of glass that also can have a trapped gas or a vacuum between the glass sheets, the amount of cold that penetrates in your home from outside is low, while the heat inside your house is prevented from the going out. Whether you use charcoal, gas, electricity or any other fuel, be sure that your bill will be lower significantly. Although it is a bit of expensive investment, it will pay off on the long run. So in terms of thermal performance, this type of glazing is more than efficient and cost saving.
The emergency glazing type of window is a lifetime version that will require little maintenance while offering a high level of performance. Think of it like this: you invest once, but you are done with your windows once for all and you only need to clean your windows regularly, no special maintenance is needed. Due to the concept of double sealing, beside it offers thermal advantages, it is also fire resistant, impact resistant(to some level, of course) and offers good acoustic insulation while requires little maintenance. These have a long lifespan and they will definitely last long to you and your home!
