5 BENEFITS OF DOUBLE GLAZING WINDOWS & DOORS
It’s no secret that windows and doors are a vital element of a home’s design. They provide a connection with the outside world, introduce natural light and airflow, and contribute to the overall aesthetic. Many homeowners opt for the more affordable standard single-glazed windows and doors. This blog explores the 5 benefits of selecting double glazing for windows & doors.
WHAT IS DOUBLE GLAZING?
Double glazing windows and doors have two glass panes bonded together by a spacer and separated by a gap between 6mm to 20mm.
The gap is hermetically sealed and filled with argon to provide an added insulation layer. Ideally, double glazed windows and doors should use toned or low-E glass to improve their performance.
Structurally, the gap between these separated panes is the critical difference between double-glazed and single-glazed windows and doors. Yet, the real difference lies in the unique benefits of double glazing.
SUITABLE FOR HOT AND COLD CLIMATES
Double-glazed windows and doors are popular in colder climates like Victoria and Tasmania.
Still, many people don’t realise they are an incredibly energy-efficient solution for all Australian climates.
While some energy-efficient products can only reduce heat loss or gain—or both—inefficiently, quality double glazing is different.
Its unique insulation properties keep the home cooler in summer and warmer in winter by limiting the hot or cold airflow between the two panes. Not only does this make the home comfortable year-round, but it also helps minimise reliance on artificial heating and cooling.
