Are you looking for the perfect way to make your home more energy efficient, secure and cost effective?

Look no further than UPVC double glazed windows. These windows are a great way to add value and appeal to your property, while also providing an array of advantages to make your home more comfortable, secure and energy efficient. In this article, we’ll discuss some of their key benefits:

1. Increased Energy Efficiency 

UPVC double glazed windows are an efficient and cost-effective way to improve the energy efficiency of your home.

uPVC stands for unplasticised polyvinyl chloride, a material that is both strong and durable, making it an ideal choice for window frames. The double glazing of the windows provides two panes of glass that are airtight and separated by an insulating spacer. The air between the two panes reduces heat transfer and helps to maintain a consistent temperature in the room, reducing your energy bills.  

The advantages of installing UPVC double glazed windows in your home are numerous.

Firstly, the insulation provided by the two panes of glass reduces outside noise levels, helping to make your home a more peaceful and tranquil environment. Secondly, the thermal insulation barrier of the windows helps to trap any warm air in your home, keeping the temperature consistent and reducing your heating costs. Additionally, because of the airtight seal of the windows, they help to prevent any drafts from entering the home and further reducing your energy bills. The windows also help to reduce the amount of ultraviolet rays entering the home, thus providing additional protection to your furniture, fabrics and carpets.  

Overall, UPVC double glazed windows are an excellent choice for improving the energy efficiency of your home. The insulation barrier of the windows helps to reduce outside noise levels and maintain a consistent temperature, reducing your energy bills and saving you money. 

2. Improved Security 

UPVC double glazed windows also provide improved security compared to other window types, with their enhanced locking mechanisms and reinforced frames.

They are made from durable and impact-resistant material, making them incredibly tough and difficult to break. This ensures that your property is protected from potential burglaries and other intrusions. The reinforced frames also make them more resistant to heavy winds and storms, ensuring that your property is safe in the event of extreme weather. 

The locking mechanisms of Deluxe Windows’ uPVC double glazed windows are also far superior to the alternatives, providing an impenetrable barrier against unwanted visitors. Our windows come with a multi-point locking system which provides a secure fit between the window and the frame and cannot be easily broken or forced open. The windows also feature key-operated locks which can be used to secure the window from the inside and provide an extra layer of protection. 

3. Reduced Noise Pollution 

Reduced Noise Pollution is another important benefit

As mentioned, uPVC windows are two panes of glass with a gap between them that is filled with air or an inert gas such as argon.

The two panes of glass act as a soundproof barrier, blocking out noise from outside your home, such as traffic and other outdoor noises. This makes your home much quieter and more peaceful, helping you relax and get a good night’s sleep. 

So, not only is the inside of your home peaceful and tranquil, but you don’t have to worry about excessive noise outside your home disturbing your peace.

This is especially important in busy urban areas of Melbourne, where there is a lot of ambient noise.  

With UPVC Double Glazed Windows, your home can remain peaceful and quiet, even in the midst of the hustle and bustle of the city.

This means you won’t need to repaint, stain, or otherwise treat them, saving time and money.

his is especially important in Melbourne’s climate of extreme temperature fluctuations or in areas that experience large amounts of rain (or snow in some areas). You won’t need to worry about your windows rotting or warping from exposure to the elements.
