If you’re a fellow Wellingtonian, you’ll know that surviving the winter months is not an easy feat. Between battling the rain, chill, and wind, the last thing you’ll want is to return to a freezing home! The good news is you don’t need to run your heating the entire winter to remain warm. Did you know that double-glazed windows can keep you warm through the winter and increase the value of your property?

Here are three reasons why your Wellington property needs double-glazed windows.

Insulation: Double-glazed windows consist of an insulating layer that helps to keep the chilly outside air out of your home. With up to 30% of heat loss incurred from windows, you’ll benefit from a comfier and warmer winter and cooler summer. Not to mention, you’ll also save money on your energy bills because you’ll run your heating less.

Noise Reduction: Live near the Wellington airport, on a busy road, or by an industrial area? Regardless of your location, double-glazed windows can reduce the noise from the outside environment. Due to the additional barrier, your home will provide a peaceful and calmer environment which is especially great for younger children, babies, and the elderly. Double glazed windows will also ensure that you can comfortably play music or watch movies at a louder volume without disturbing your neighbors.

Increase the value of your property: Not only will you have a warmer and more comfortable house, but double glazing your windows will also improve the visual appearance and curb appeal of your home. Double-glazed homes are far more appealing than single-glazed homes, so you can rest assured that if you ever decide to sell, you’ll get a better price.

Double-glazed windows offer a wide range of advantages. In addition to increasing the value of your home, double-glazing will also help you control condensation, minimise noise, and stay warm and cozy throughout the winter. Learn more by booking a free quote.
