Conservatories are a fantastic way to introduce some light into your home so you can relax and enjoy the view. However, poor installation technique and low-quality window panes can present you with a number of problems. Thankfully, we’re here to help.
Common issues with conservatory double glazing
Temperature control is a major factor in conservatory design. They help to keep you cool in the summer, and with insulating glass, you’ll stay warm in the winter too.
However, good temperature control relies on the quality of your window installation. If your double glazing seals fail, your conservatory won’t be able to store heat any longer, meaning you face extortionate energy bills or avoiding your conservatory altogether.
Gaps in your double glazing, whether it’s the seals of physical damage, can also cause your windows to become cloudy. This is caused by moisture getting trapped between the panes of glass, which not only obscures your view but can also lead to damp problems in your home.
How can we help?
For most window companies, replacing entire units can be expensive, making conservatory window repairs a frightening concept.
At Cloudy2Clear, though, we’re experts at window pane replacement, meaning we only need to remove the faulty glass without touching the frame or any other windows. This not only makes our conservatory double glazing repairs a much cheaper solution, but also allows our engineers to have your windows back in working order in a flash.
Our engineers just need to take some measurements before returning with your new glass. We can work with any size, shape or colour glass, making sure your new window is a perfect match.
What are the benefits of conservatory double glazing?
Installing double glazing in your conservatory provides a range of benefits. Some of these include:
- Enhanced Insulation.
The most compelling benefit to double glazing is its effective insulation properties. Conservatories are most exposed to the changes in weather and seasons, and you’ll likely notice they’re often unbearably hot in summer – yet bitterly cold in the winter. Double glazing can help regulate the temperature within the most exposed area of your home.
- Increased Property Value.
Double glazing is now the standard for homes across the UK. Having double glazing installed in your conservatory ensures your property isn’t falling too far behind with upgrades, and will add thousands onto the value of your property.
- Lower Energy Bills.
Single glazed conservatories are notorious for causing heat loss in the home. Updating your conservatory with double glazing means your space is more insulated. In the colder months, this will reduce your expenditure on energy bills; and in the summer months, the insulative benefits will help keep your conservatory cooler.
- Increased Comfort.
Conservatories are prone to draughts, as any minor gaps in the seals surrounding your windows will allow air to enter the home. Installing double glazing in your conservatory will reduce the presence of draughts, making it an altogether more comfortable space to be. You’ll also notice reduced levels of noise pollution – so you can use the space to properly unwind or focus on work.
- Better Security.
Single glazed windows are much easier to break into than double glazed windows. With an additional layer of security protecting your home and belongings, having double glazing installed can even help reduce insurance premiums.
Is it expensive to install double glazing in a conservatory?
There are a range of factors to take into account when determining how expensive your conservatory double glazing upgrade will be. The size of your conservatory, style of windows, and the type of double glazing you choose will all influence the final cost.
While upgrading your entire conservatory to double glazing might seem costly, it’s a worthwhile investment. You’ll save money on your energy bills, while your home will become more comfortable. If you do look to sell in the future, your property value will also have risen in accordance with the eco-friendly double glazing upgrades you’ve made.
