The cost of new double glazing will gradually pay for itself because, in comparison with the single pane windows, double glazing mitigates heat loss and allows you to save around 11% of your heating bill.

This is possible thanks to the technology behind double glazing: two panes of glass with a gap of air between them are mounted to a frame. The gap is typically filled with a vacuum or argon gas, which makes it difficult for air to circulate through the gap.

This way, you can keep warm air inside more easily in the winter, and in the summer months, keep the hot air out.

New Green Homes Grant

In July, the government announced the new Green Homes Grant, which provides homeowners and landlords with £5,000 - £10,000 vouchers for energy-saving renovations.

Double glazing is included under the secondary measures of the grant.

Applications are now open. Read our guide about the Green Homes Grant for full details and to help prepare your application.

Note: the Green Homes Grant is only available in England, and works can continue in all tiers under the current restrictions.

What Are the Best Double Glazing Companies in the UK?

There are great double glazing companies in the UK that can carry out your double glazing project.

The biggest names you may know about are Everest, Safestyle, and Anglian. However, there are also local installers across the country.

Whichever company you go with, ensure they provide an adequate warranty on their windows. Double glazing, if properly installed, should last at least 20 years.

How Do I Find the Best Windows and Frames?

The best frames for your double glazed windows or doors depends on your own personal preferences and budget.

uPVC windows are the most popular type of frame because it is much more affordable than timber. Besides that, there is a lower chance of rot from moisture, which also makes it easier to clean and maintain.

However, not everybody likes uPVC material, so they tend to go for alternatives such as aluminium windows. The disadvantage is a higher price, but it can manage to maintain the old vintage style of your home—if that is what you are looking for. Overall, depending on the size of the windows and doors, the thickness can differ from 14mm-28 mm.

If you are after a traditional look, then wooden double glazed windows are for you — but be prepared for the higher costs. As an alternative solution, some manufacturers offer uPVC windows with a wood effect.

How Much Do Replacement Windows Cost?

In terms of performance, double glazing is a more improved technology compared to single glazing; however, they are not always perfectly efficient. In cases where condensation materialises between the panes, this can cause cracks or chips that damage the window or the door.

In this case, you will need to get your windows replaced. The cost of replacement windows depends on the extent of the damage, as well as the type of window you have.

When installing double glazed products, manufacturers usually offer a guarantee for twenty years, but the risk of damage still exists. There is no need to replace the whole installation because the measurements were taken and the frames remain intact; so, you can just replace the double glazing, which is cheaper.
