Sliding doors are great for letting light into your home. They’re also a wonderful way to bring the outdoors inside and vice versa. If your doors are single glazed, and face west they’re not the best at insulating against the heat or cold outside. However, you can mitigate these issues by simply upgrading your sliding glass doors to a double glazed version. Following are five benefits that you’ll realise from installing double glazed sliding doors.
Before you tune out, because you already have your doors installed – don’t despair, we have a solution for you too, and no it is not an ugly secondary glazed unit – it is our SWiTCH double glazed insert. So, read on and we will tell you about the benefits of double glazing, then how you can achieve it through SWiTCH double glazing:
If you are feeling draughts, that is air coming in and around your windows, you know that your heater/air conditioner runs more often than it should. You also realise that if the cold is getting in, the heat is also escaping. The process works in reverse when you’re trying to keep your home cool. Double glazing offers a high level of insulation against heat loss during colder months and they also keep cooler air inside when it’s warm out.
If your heater/air conditioning is running non-stop, you know what that’s going to do to your energy bill. You may have replaced the heater, thinking that was the culprit, but the problem persists. In reality, you can have the best heater/air conditioning in the world, but if your doors and windows are letting the heat escape, it won’t make a bit of difference. Double glazed sliding doors will help to get your energy bills in check by reducing the amount of air leakage.
Whether you live near a busy roadway, or you’ve got neighbours that are loud, you know how hard it is to block out the sounds. You can always turn up the music or television in your home so you can hear, but that’s not a real solution. Want a good nights sleep, then double glazing will help reduce the amount of noise coming from the outside, creating a quiet zone inside for you and your family.
It is difficult to think about the distant future and the possibility that you may remodel or even sell your home at some point. However, it’s not completely out of the question, is it? Aluminium framed double glazed glass doors are easily recycled and the materials are perfectly suited for re-use in other products. By reducing your carbon footprint now, you’ll benefit yourself and future generations. You can rest well with the knowledge that your choice today will have a positive impact, not a negative one.
Whether you are considering double glazing to save your sanity and get a good night’s sleep, or for energy $ savings. Don’t think it’s too late, just because your windows and doors are already in, that’s no reason to discount double glazing.
There is a solution, our SWiTCH double glazing, simply removes your existing single glazed pane of glass, and switches it out by installing a retro-fitted double glazed unit. That’s right, no need to replace your windows, just SWiTCH you glass out with a new double glazed glass unit. It’s easy and a very cost effective way to get double glazing, so you can enjoy all the benefits it has to offer now and well into the future.
