As we now come in to the Great British Winter, it’s that time of year when the temperatures start to drop, frosts start to set in and snow flurries begin to fall. Whilst many of us enjoy the wonderful Wintery scenes and Christmas festivities that this time of year provides, it’s important that these cold spells are kept outside don’t penetrate into the home.
Whilst there are many ways to achieve this such as cavity wall insulation, loft insulation and state-of-the-art central heating, one of the most important things to consider when insulating your home is the windows and doors that you have installed.
Whilst many homes now have modern double-glazed windows and doors that help to block out the drafts that single-glazed units used to create, with advances in technology the differences between the insulation that double-glazed units from 10 years ago created compared to those of today are extremely vast.
