Double Glazed Windows
The weather in Perth can range from scorching hot in the summer to decidedly chilly in the winter months, so a large part of your energy usage will be dedicated to heating and cooling.
One way to reduce energy costs is to install double glazed windows, but there are many more benefits that you’ll enjoy with them.
What Exactly are Double Glazed Windows?
Double glazing can be used for doors or windows and consists of two panes of glass bonded together with a space between them. The space is filled with argon gas, acting as a thermal barrier between you and the outside world to keep the indoor temperature more constant and reduce energy costs by at least 20%.
Double Glazed Window Benefits
Double glazing keeps your home or business cooler in summer and warmer in winter, which makes your interior environment much more comfortable any time of year.
The space between the two panes of glass also acts as noise insulation. Together with the special seals used to keep the gas in, double glazed windows can greatly reduce noise from outside, which is perfect if you live on a busy road or near an airport.
Double glazing also gives added protection from glass breakage, since there are two panes of glass that are often toughened or laminated. If one does get broken, you still have the added security of the remaining pane of glass until you can call a glazier for repairs.
In winter, moist, warm air inside your home or business hits the cold glass of your windows and condensation develops on the inside. While not a problem in itself, heavy condensation can cause problems with moisture damage to window frames and the surrounding areas, as well as toxic mould build up.
The double panes of glass prevent condensation because the interior pane is insulated from the cold outside, meaning it’s the same temperature as the inside of the building.
