Double Glazing in Horsham | Performing Installations in Sussex & Surrey

Heath Windows Ltd supplies and fits double glazing with our complete range of replacement windows. We operate out of Horsham, providing this service throughout the town and across the wider Sussex and Surrey area, from Broadbridge Heath to Cranleigh. Whether in wood, aluminium or uPVC windows, double glazing has become a ubiquitous feature in the construction of new homes and in property improvement projects. Despite its undoubted popularity, we have taken a brief look below at what double glazing involves.

 

Put simply, double glazed windows consist of two panes of glass set within the same frame. A thin layer of air (a vacuum), or often an inert gas like argon, separates these panes, creating a much more effective, energy efficient barrier between the interior and exterior.

HOW DOES DOUBLE GLAZING REDUCE HEAT LOSS?

 

Double glazed windows reduce the amount of heat lost from the inside of properties in Horsham and the surrounding areas through conduction and convection. Conduction involves the transfer of heat through a material. In regard to a single pane of glass, heat hits the surface and then transfers through it, escaping to the outside. When applied to single glazed windows, this process essentially sucks vital and expensive warmth out of properties.

 

However, with double glazing, after transferring through the internal pane, the heat meets the air vacuum or argon gas. This is where convection takes over.

 

The process of convection involves heat being transferred through a moving gas or liquid. In the case of double glazing, this involves air or argon. Both of these substances have poor abilities as conductors of heat, so they act as a barrier preventing heat from escaping the property through convection. As a result, the warm air stays inside the property.

 

Naturally, this level of efficiency means homeowners in Horsham, Broadbridge Heath, Cranleigh and throughout Sussex and Surrey use less heat to warm up their home.

BENEFITS OF DOUBLE GLAZING

 

Aside from preventing heat loss, double glazing has multiple other benefits, including:

 

  • Acoustic Insulation – The additional materials of these installations drastically reduce the amount of external sound that can pass through, making homes and workplaces that much quieter
  • Increased Security – Whether in aluminium, timber or uPVC windows, the presence of two panes of glass in a single frame makes them inherently stronger and more resilient than single glazed designs
  • Reduces Condensation  - The internal pane of glass in double glazing installations doesn’t get as cold at the external one, so condensation cannot build up. This helps to reduce issues associated with moisture ingress and mould

 

Our double glazing range includes patterned designs from Pilkington Glass. Offering five levels of privacy through various levels of obscuration, we supply and fit Pilkington Glass to suit any requirement while still maximising the amount of natural sunlight passing through.

 

Double glazing also features prominently in our wide range of doors, including composite doors and bi-fold doors.
