With the cost of energy going up, it’s a good idea to invest in things that will keep you warm yet keep costs down.
One of the simplest ways to do this is to make full use of double and triple glazing in your windows and glass doors.
Anigmar Solutions are specialists in fitting new windows in homes and commercial buildings in Thurrock and across the Essex area.
Traditionally, older windows are made from a single pane of glass. To increase the strength, lifespan and thermal insulation, modern equivalents are made of two panes (double glazing) or sometimes three (triple glazing).
In the past, the one pane may have been fitted inside wood. This is still done today but the window can also be fitted into a sealed unit. This innovation is known as IGU or Insulated Glass Unit. Commonly, the glass is housed in uPVC, aluminium or another composite material.
This is true of windows and doors, such as patio doors, doors for conservatories, French doors and also the glass in your front and back doors.
Homeowners and commercial buildings in Thurrock without functional double glazing are under-equipped to deal with the mercurial weather in England and the UK as a whole.
Sometimes, completely replacing your windows is not needed and a simple repair can be enough to restore your windows in terms of both performance and aesthetics.
We appreciate that, to the untrained eye, it can be tricky to know when the glass and frames in the windows or a door in your house need to be repaired, so here a are few key signs that something is wrong:
Any sign of condensation in-between the glass is a sure fire way of knowing that a failure has occurred somewhere in your double glazing. Often this can be easily rectified by replacing the glass and taking the necessary measures to stop it from happening again.
When the windows or doors in your home or business become stiff, difficult to open or close, or the locks aren’t working as they should — it’s time to get them seen to as a matter of urgency. This will not only make the rooms cold but will also leave them vulnerable when it comes to security.
uPVC frames are generally hard wearing and resilient to the elements, however there can be instances when they warp, crack or go yellow. This is a signal that something has gone awry and will need to be investigated.
The main function of windows is to create a barrier between the outside and the inside. When you start to feel cold air or see water coming in, they’re no longer doing their job.
The seal of your windows and doors are hugely important and should remain intact and complete at all times. When this is no longer the case, a repair or replacement will be on the cards and it’s time to book in a visit from the professional team at Anigmar.

If you’re thinking of upgrading from single pane, it’s important to know that you will be bringing an array of benefits to your home or business.
Here are just a few:
Two or three panes of glass in a window are harder to break than just one. This protects your home or business from intrusions and criminal damage.
Expect noise levels to be significantly reduced when you upgrade your windows and doors — perfect if you live on a busy street.
Good windows are so desirable that they increase the value of your home.
Similarly, many insurers will reduce your property insurance premium when you have double glazed windows installed.
Less condensation, more warmth and better lighting. How can you argue with that?
