Double glazing brings your heating costs down and you can now calculate your savings with double glazing.

Double glazing is always good.

Since this double glazing came on the market, the energy costs have decreased enormously.

Double glazing

You can verify that single glass did not insulate at all.

You have a direct connection with the outside and inside.

So when it’s hot outside, it gets hot inside too.

Even when it is cold you get the same effect.

Single glass ensured that it remained dry inside and that you were not bothered by wind.

I remembered earlier when I had to go to bed and it was winter when it was very cold in the bedroom.

We also had no heating and you could see the ”flowers” on the windows.

Can you still remember this?

You do not have this with double glazing.

Double glazing consists of 2 glass plates with a cavity in it.

This cavity is filled with air.

And this air has an insulating effect.

Nowadays there are more types of glass from HR+ to triple glass.

With HR++ glass there is no air in it, but argon glass and 1 side of the glass plate is coated.

That coating then stops the heat and provides cooling in the summer.

Triple glass even contains 3 glass plates.

The more pluses and glass plates there are, the higher the insulation value and the lower the energy costs.

Placing double glazing therefore does have value. and double glazing is also possible.

You can calculate double glazing with the insulation App.

You will soon be able to calculate double glazing in advance with the insulation App.

Glass manufacturer AGC has made a new App for this so that you can see in advance what your savings are on your energy costs.

It is a calculator where you can enter the square meters.

Then you choose which type of double glazing you want.

The calculator then calculates how many cubic meters of gas you save.

In addition, this App also indicates how many euros you save on an annual basis.

Amazing, right?

This App is free to download.

At the time of this writing, it is not yet known when it will be available for download.

I’ll let you know as soon as there’s any news about this.

Thanks in advance.
