Our blog post this week is a little different than normal as the content hasn’t been created by a human, read on and all shall be explained.
Earlier this week I had an email land in my inbox informing that I could access the early preview of the new Bing (Microsoft’s search alternative to Google) powered by Ai.
Essentially the “new Bing” is powered by ChatGPT, a chatbot that launched in November 2022. What makes the new Bing very interesting is you can ask a question and it will understand the context of the question, so is able to generate a unique answer based on the Ai’s vast knowledge obtained during its initial training and continued learning.
So with that in mind i wondered:
- If the Ai was smart enough to write a blog post?
- What an Ai would perceive the benefits of double glazing to be?
So I asked Bing to “write a blog post on the benefits of double glazing in the uk” (notice i accidently typed white instead of write in the screenshot below, however my question was understood regardless):
Below is the full Ai generated blog post on the benefits of double glazing. Only the formatting has been edited to display correctly on the Gardinia blog, the content is untouched.
Double glazing windows are becoming more popular in the UK as homeowners look for ways to improve their energy efficiency, security and comfort. But what are double glazing windows and what are their benefits? In this blog post, we will answer these questions and help you decide if double glazing windows are right for you.
What are double glazing windows?
Double glazing windows are windows that have two panes of glass separated by a layer of air or gas. This layer acts as an insulator that prevents heat loss and noise transmission. Double glazing windows can be made of different materials such as uPVC, aluminium or wood, and come in various styles and colours to suit your preferences.
What are the benefits of double glazing windows?
Installing double glazing windows can offer you many advantages, such as:
Double glazed windows are much safer than single-pane ones. They are twice as tough and harder to break than single glazing. They also have stronger frames that can resist forced entry. With double glazed windows, you can enjoy peace of mind knowing that your home is protected from intruders.
Reduced energy bills and higher thermal insulation:
Double glazed windows are designed to provide better thermal insulation than single-glazed windows. They prevent heat loss through your windows by trapping a layer of air or gas between the panes. This means that your home will be easier to keep warm in winter and cool in summer, leading to lower energy bills and reduced carbon footprint.
Condensation forms on your windows when they are cooler than the temperature inside your house. This can cause dampness, mould growth and damage to your window frames. Double glazed windows reduce condensation by keeping your window surface warmer than single glazed ones. This improves your indoor air quality and prevents health problems caused by mould spores.
Double glazed windows also reduce noise pollution by blocking out external sounds such as traffic, neighbours or airplanes. The layer of air or gas between the panes acts as a sound barrier that reduces sound transmission. This makes your home quieter and more comfortable for you and your family.
Higher property value:
Double glazed windows can also increase the value of your property by making it more attractive, modern and energy efficient. Potential buyers will appreciate the benefits of double glazing windows and be willing to pay more for them. Double glazed windows can also improve your Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating which shows how energy efficient your property is.
How much do double glazing windows cost?
The cost of double glazing windows depends on several factors such as:
- The size, shape and number of your windows
- The type, material and quality of your window frames
- The type, thickness and coating of your glass panes
- The installation company you choose
According to Checkatrade.com, the average cost of installing double glazing in a three-bedroom house in the UK is £3,000 – £5,000. However, this is only an estimate based on national averages so it may vary depending on your specific situation.
To get an accurate quote for double glazing installation in your area, you should contact at least three reputable companies who offer free surveys and quotes. You should compare their prices, services and reviews before making a decision.
Is double glazing worth it?
Double glazing is worth it if you want to improve your home’s security, comfort, energy efficiency and value. It can save you money on heating bills in the long run while making your home more pleasant to live in.
However, double glazing may not be suitable for everyone depending on their budget, preferences and existing window condition.

Thank you for reading!
Conclusion from the human publishing this post online:
We will all soon be out of a job! – but seriously it was extremely impressive to watch the above been created right before my eyes in no more than 30 seconds. It took me longer to think how I was going to introduce this unique blog post than the Ai did to create it.
The Ai has used information from the sources linked to below, however has not directly copied entire paragraphs word for word. The five key benefits of double glazing are referenced from the Architectural Digest website, however the information explaining these points has mostly been expanded upon with additional context.
Needless to say the end result is extremely impressive I’m sure you will agree! If Bing / ChatGTP is this good now, what is it going to be possible in 5 years time?
