Looking for High Quality Double Glazing in St Albans?
Working in St Albans is always something of an event for the P&M Windows installation team. It’s a handsome city that wears its past proudly, whether it’s the ancient Roman theatre, the oldest pub in England, or the medieval Abbey Gateway. We like to think that the more contemporary additions we’ve made to the city, in the form of double glazed window installations, sit easily beside such rich historic artefacts.
Truth is, our double glazed windows have as much of a story to tell about heating our homes efficiently as the Roman hypocaust that heated the townspeople’s villas. And like the ancient underfloor heating, they’re designed to last! As we drive through the city we’re always on the look out for our handiwork. We like to check out how well our windows are standing the test of time for contemporary citizens of Verulamium.
As windows installers in St Albans we’re often asked whether double glazing is worth the money you pay for it. We always ask homeowners to think of double glazing as an energy efficient investment, rather than a one-off cost. From the moment it’s installed, you’ll start to notice the impact it has on the efficiency of your heating system. Year-on-year your double glazing will save you money on your household bills.
Double glazing is made up of two panes of glass with a space measuring around 16mm between them. This gap is filled with argon gas, or with air, in order to form an insulating barrier. The heat you generate inside your house during the winter remains inside, thanks to your windows. Then in the summer, your double glazed windows keeps the heat outside whilst the interior remains cool.
There’s one piece of feedback we hear again and again from our St Albans customers. They tell us that once the thermostat temperature is reached, with double glazing installed, it maintains. This means that your boiler’s not having to work so hard, and that your indoor temperatures can be relied upon without constantly re-adjusting the thermostat. Ultimately, of course, it keeps your heating bills down.
