In most cases, yes.
Double glazing can save you money on your heating bills.
But how much? And is it really worth the investment?
These are some of the questions we’re going to be answering in this blog post. To help provide more clarity on why double glazing is a good investment to make and why, even though the upfront costs may be quite high, that the monthly money saved will be more beneficial in the long run.
How Much Is Double Glazing?
It really depends on the different window style, how many windows you need installing and how big or small you need the windows to be.
Whilst roughly we can assume that, for a ballpark figure for 4 uPVC casement windows on a home, you may be looking towards the £2,000 mark.
However, this is a very rough estimation, we would highly recommend for a more bespoke price, that you use our QuoteBuilder tool where you can input your own specifications to receive a realtime visualisation of your ideal window style, colour and then receive a no-obligation quote for your windows.
So whilst the upfront cost may appear to be quite high, the lifespan of double glazing can range between 10 – 25 years.
And if you can expect to save at the very least £500 per year, this would equal £5,000 over 10 years and £12,500 over a 25 year period which is usually the ideal lifespan of today’s’ double glazing.
Is Double Glazing Worth The Investment?
Looking at some very rough figures above, it’s easy to see that over a 25 year period, you could potentially be saving up to £12,500 which is over 6 times more than the cost of the double glazing upfront.
And in that sense, there may be a case for installing double glazing and that it is indeed worth the investment. But it ultimately comes down to you and your decision, what your current budget is and what your needs are.
Now we must maintain that the figures discussed within this blog are purely rough estimates and speculative. As we previously mentioned, for more of a realistic quote for the double glazing upgrades you would like, please check out our QuoteBuilder tool online.
