Double glazing is a miracle of modern technology in that it is such a simple idea. Two panes of glass with a thin partition in the middle, basically a vacuum, can stop so many things from getting in and getting out. First of all double glazing is highly effective at keeping heat in your home. That is a saving right there. You spend hundreds of pounds to heat the home and then it escapes through drafts and convection. Also the single pane will create condensation on the windows that can lead to mold and mildew, especially if you have wooden frames.

On the flip side it also keeps heat out of the home. In the high summer with the sunlight beating down the glass on the outside will repel the heat and also keep the inside cool. Not only that it will also stop any harmful UV rays by filtering out the excesses of it.
