Double Window or Double Glazing What to Choose?

Double Window or Double Glazing What to Choose?

Changing of air, partial reform or complete, energy savings, cost savings, or simply if you want to increase the soundproofing and thermal insulation of your home, whatever your reason, there are generally two possible solutions to install Windows: Double window and double glazing.

Double Window or Double Glazing What to Choose?

What is the double window?

It is the establishment of a new glazing on the inside or outside of the existing window. That is, put another window in the internal or external part of the existing window. The double window, therefore, is formed by two independent windows, each placed with its own frame and frame. In the case of reforms, they can be placed, as we have indicated, indistinctly, there is no need to have a particular type of window that is outside and another inside.

It is an efficient system to achieve the isolation of the home, but not the best. Reduces leaks by conduction and convection and thermal bridges (up to 3 W / m² ° C). The loss of heat in the home is reduced because the air space between the two windows acts as an insulation (both by conduction and by convection) to prevent not only the cold, but also the degrees of heat We have in our house.

In terms of energy and economic savings, in both cases, we will notice considerable savings in both ways.

The energy saving is reflected in the improvement of our home in terms of thermal comfort, with the considerable reduction of energy loss when having to increase the degrees of heat of our home. Therefore, less energy expenditure and equal level of thermal comfort.

As for the economic savings, it will also be notable, because no more heating or air conditioning is needed, depending on the season of the year we are in, less consumption will be made, and therefore less will have to be paid on the monthly invoice of the light.

What is double glazing?

The double glazing is composed of two or more sheets of glass separated by a dehydrated air chamber or gas, so it can offer a much better thermal and acoustic insulation than simple glazing and also other window systems. Not only the sheets of glass that have the double glazing that we put at home influence the insulation that we want to obtain, but also the thickness of the air chamber. In general, the greater the thickness of the space between the two, the greater the isolation, and therefore, as we have indicated, greater energy efficiency and more savings.

There is no concrete distance that gives us the best formulas, but the most optimal thickness of the camera is 16mm.

There are many options on the market to choose from, as well as a variety of double glazing distributions or combinations, such as double-glazing combinations 4-16-4 (two 4mm glasses with a 16mm camera), or 6-16-6 (Two 6mm glasses with a 16mm camera), etc. The greater the thickness of the chamber the greater the thermal insulation.

This double glazing, prefabricated insulated glass with the air chamber, are inserted in a carpentry. Most of them can be included in housing reforms of all kinds. However, it should be noted that the double-glazed windows with air chamber have a very specific carpentry to have a greater thickness, so it is easier to place them in newly built houses or in reforms that include the complete renovation of the frame of the window.

What is the best option

In terms of energy and economic savings, with both solutions, we will notice an improvement. Although it is true that a composition in the high range of double glazing CLIMALIT PLUS, provides higher values, in addition to gaining aesthetics and practicality for maintenance and cleaning.

The energy saving is reflected in the improvement of our home in terms of thermal comfort, with the considerable reduction of energy loss when having to increase the degrees of heat of our home. Therefore, less energy expenditure and equal level of thermal comfort.

As for the economic savings, it will also be notable, because no more heating or air conditioning is needed, depending on the season of the year we are in, less consumption will be made, and therefore less will have to be paid on the monthly invoice of the light.

Windows with double glazing generally give better results in terms of thermal insulation.

However, as the saying goes for tastes the colors.  In this choice of double glazing or double glazing, the best option will depend on the specific needs, the situation and orientation of the house, the enclosure to be used and the external conditions of the house. Our recommendation is that you go to a specialized installer who can offer you expert advice.

However, if we can point out that at the time of choosing we must take into account at least these 5 points:

Space:  The space in a double window and in a double glazing is not the same. In the double window the space that covers are all the enclosure of the facade, whereas in the double glazing.

The conditions of the closure:  The orientation, geographic location, types of enclosure, and climatological conditions of the area where the house is located, are factors to study to make a successful choice.

The quality of carpentry: The better the qualities that we bet on in terms of material, air permeability, resistance, etc., the greater the quality offered by our window, and therefore, the greater our savings.

The quality of glass: The quality of the glass that we install in our windows, as well as the type, thickness, thickness of the chamber, etc., will determine the final quality of our window, and we will achieve a higher quality window, again, greater savings.

The thickness of the air chamber between windows:  In the case of choosing a double window our savings will be increased in proportion to the width of the camera that we leave both windows. The greater this width, the greater our insulation, therefore, the more the quality of the installation of the double window increases, and the greater our savings.

Final Recommendation: Although the best option is always a double glazing with reinforced thermal insulation (ATR) and 16mm CLIMALIT PLUS camera or even a triple glazing with two chambers and two ATR glass.
