The short answer is, yes it is worth upgrading your old double glazing. Having old double glazing could be severely compromising the performance of your home and making it more expensive to run. By upgrading your double glazing, you could make your property warmer in winter and help you maintain a consistently comfortable space. Replacing your windows and doors could improve insulation, cut draughts and improve the thermal efficiency of any property in your local area. Double glazing units generally have a lifespan of 25 to 30 years and require minimal maintenance, thanks to the long lasting profiles and hardware used. Older designs may require more upkeep, which can be expensive and time consuming. Older installations are not designed to keep up with the adverse weather conditions like our modern double glazing.    

When do I need to replace my double glazing?

If your home is struggling with being cold and having draughts, it could be that your windows and doors feature damage or underperforming double glazing. It’s hard to know exactly when you need to install premium double glazing but there are some clues. An obvious sign that you need to replace your double glazing is noting how cold it is when you stand by your external door or window. Draughty profiles are a big clue that the seal has been damaged as cold air is easily entering your property. If you notice water pooling on your windowsill, it could be another indicator the weatherseal is failing or that your profile is suffering from drainage issues. You should replace your glazing when you notice condensation or mist forming between the panes. Condensation means the seals are failing and moisture is getting trapped inside the double glazing, which can lead to heat loss, damp and can risk the framework becoming damaged. A chip or crack in your glazing is an obvious sign that your old double glazing needs to be replaced. Visible damage to a window or door is a security risk to your home and would attract the wrong type of visitors. A chipped window will also cause draughts and reduce the thermal efficiency of a property.  

Why should I replace my double glazing?
