It is no secret that double glazing and UPVC windows provides economic benefits. The window installation ensures that heat is effectively retained inside your home, saving you money on your energy bill over time.
But did you know that double glazed windows can offer more than just energy savings? The use of double glazing and UPVC windows can improve your home in a variety of ways, consequently increasing its overall value. How and how much by?
Single Glazed Houses V Double Glazed Houses
If you currently have single-glazed windows and are trying to sell your home, you may encounter some difficulties. Double-glazed windows are now a standard requirement for many prospective home buyers. Because there are so many houses with double glazed windows on the market right now, those with single-glazed windows simply do not get a look in.
Potential buyers do not want to have to upgrade their windows themselves, especially when they have the option of purchasing a home that already has double glazing installed. By upgrading to double-glazed windows, you will automatically increase the demand for your property, and increased demand equals higher value in the long run.
It should be noted, however, that double glazing with A-D ratings is available. Though homes with D-rated double glazing will outperform houses without any double glazing in the market, you must be wary of your competition. D-rated double-glazing houses will struggle to stand out in a market flooded with A-rated double glazing.
Kerb Appeal And Double Glazing
Double-glazed windows also improve the aesthetics of your home. Windows are usually one of the first things that people notice about a house. Replacing your windows with new, fresh, double-glazed windows can improve your home’s overall perception, making it visibly more appealing. Furthermore, visitors who are interested in your home will notice that the interior is warm and inviting without the use of artificial heating. It will also be quiet, thanks to the noise reduction provided by your double-glazed windows.
Upkeep And Maintenance Of Double Glazed Windows
Condensation will have a negative impact on your home, primarily in the form of mould. Mould thrives in moist environments, and unless the condensation is addressed, mould will continue to grow even after it has been removed. Installing double glazing will increase the value of your home because it will no longer be subject to spawning unhealthy living conditions. Buyers will be happy to spend more money on a property that is clean and does not risk any negative or potential health problems.
How Much Is My Home Worth With Double Glazing
Because there are different grades of doubles glazed windows, it is difficult to calculate a property value. Naturally, A-grade double glazing adds more value than D-grade, and D-grade adds more value than none at all. To get the most out of your home, it’s critical that its grade competes favourably with similar houses on the market. Houses doing favourably against their competitors can see their value rise by as much as 10%.
However, if you are debating whether the cost of glazing is worth the added value, keep in mind that much of the money saved by lowering your energy bill will cover the costs of installation, even before the added value on your home is considered!
