Why Settle With Double Glazing When You Can Have Triple?
All Our PVC Double Glazed Windows Can Be Upgraded To Triple Glazing
High energy bills. Noisy neighbours. The guilt you feel about your home’s giant carbon footprint. What do all these problems have in common? Simple – they can all be alleviated by upgrading your home’s windows to double glazed windows. Keep reading to find out more.
Double glazed windows consist of two panes of glass and a layer of gas trapped in the middle. Unlike glass, this gas is a very poor conductor of heat, meaning it actively prevents outside temperatures from transferring through the window. It can also block out loud external noises such as barking dogs and traffic. Double glazed windows can be made using many different types of glass and glass coatings, so their properties can be tailored to suit your individual needs.
The average Australian household spends 40% of its electricity on heating and cooling. Single-pane windows are largely to blame for this. These windows leak heat like a sieve, driving up energy usage, and are unfortunately still very common across our country. Luckily, there’s a solution.
Upgrading to double glazed windows can reduce the heat your home gains during summer by up to 77%, and it can also cut winter heat loss by up to 30%. This means that, in addition to drastically lowering your home’s greenhouse gas emissions, you can expect to see a significant reduction in your energy bills. A typical family living in a three-bedroom house is estimated to save around $250 each year by switching to double glazed windows.
Double glazed windows are also a great way to reduce ambient noise and create a more peaceful home environment. Powerful sound waves are scarcely inconvenienced by a single pane of glass, but the insulating layer of gas in a double glazed unit can slow them right down and reduce the noise that you hear inside your home by up to 40 decibels.
If your house is situated by a main road or in another particularly noisy area, you may also like to choose a special acoustic glass for your double glazed windows. Thicker panes of glass with a larger gap between them will have a greater noise-cancelling effect.
So there you have it. Upgrading to double glazed windows will save the environment, save you money, and even help you find a little extra peace and quiet. But who can you trust to supply and install premium quality double glazed windows at a competitive price?
