Double glazed doors are an environmentally friendly choice that significantly reduces the amount of heat that is lost from inside the home and lowers the heating costs for householders.
Why Choose Double Glazed Doors?
Nowadays, almost everyone is looking to reduce their environmental impact and Double Glazed Doors offer a proven and highly-effective way to reduce heat-loss from homes.
- Having an air gap between the two panes of glass in Glazed External Doors prevents heat transfer by convection and keeps the heat inside the home thus minimising the heat lost to the outside.
- Not only does this reduce the carbon footprint of the household but it also has the welcome and beneficial effect of reducing their utility bills.
- With many houses situated close to busy roads, or similarly noisy locations, Double Glazed Doors offer valuable noise-reduction benefits which can significantly improve the quality of life of residents in high-traffic areas or those living close to airports or railway stations.
- A final, but not insignificant benefit, is the increased security they offer compared to single glazed doors.
How much are double glazed doors?
Double glazed doors will cost more than standard glazed doors as they are seen as better insulators and are perfect for exterior doors. They tend to cost upwards of £300.
What are Glazed Doors?
Glazed doors are doors, either internal or external, which feature a window. A glazed door can have single or double glazing, which affects the value and insulation of the door. This is particularly important in a glazed front door.
