How double glazing helps to make your home more secure
There are many ways you can improve the security of your home – and your starting point should be ensuring the strength of your windows and doors.
Figures from the Office for National Statistics show that in incidents of domestic burglary where the intruder entered a dwelling, they gained entry through a door around 70% of the time and through a window around 30% of the time.
Therefore, double glazing, especially on ground floor windows, should be a priority.
What is energy efficient glass?
Energy efficient glass is used in double glazing and triple glazing to help you reduce your heating bills – and improve your carbon footprint.
Most new builds will be fitted with energy efficient windows. And owners of older properties are advised to replace any single or old-style double-glazing with new, more efficient glass.
What’s the difference between an orangery and a conservatory?
The principal difference between an orangery and conservatory is their construction.
Whereas a conservatory will typically have over 75% of its roof glazed, an orangery generally has less than 75%. Plus, over 50% of the wall area of a conservatory would also be glazed.
Both are popular with homeowners, but which you choose depends on the style of construction most suited to your requirements.
