Double glazed windows consist of a special glass that is slightly translucent allowing the warm air from inside to be transmitted through to the exterior, while keeping the cold air out. The insulating properties of this glass also provide insulation against heat loss or gain. It is a more economical option than traditional glazing and also works well to reduce draftiness. In a traditional glazed window, only the outermost layer of glass receives the maximum amount of heat (since it is always opaque).

Double glazed windows are a very efficient way of keeping energy bills down by keeping heat in during the winter and cooling air in during the summer. As these double glazed windows are also more resistant to heat loss than their single counterparts, they are a popular choice for replacing old windows. They also add additional security to a home as they are harder to break into. This extra security also comes at a cost, though as double glazed windows are now becoming more affordable, this cost is gradually decreasing.
