This is especially comforting if you live in a ground-level house or apartment.  It's very difficult to smash a window with double glazing.

Increased property value

When people look to buy a home, many look for double glazing, knowing about its benefits to lower energy costs and also less upkeep than older sash style windows. Having a home with double glazing installed can be an added benefit and can add to the value of your home when you go to sell it.

Noise reduction

If you are looking to buy a home in a bustling area or near an airport, double glazing is a must-have for sure.

Double glazing does not take any heavy maintenance. A simple wipe of the windows and window frame on a regular basis will remove condensation and any dead insects and keep the windows as good as new. A little WD-40 applied to the hinges and locks will also keep them in good working order.

So as you can see there are many benefits of double glazing. If you have money to invest in your property double glazing is well worth considering.
