Understanding the value of your property involves decoding a complex set of factors that determine a home's worth. Aside from location and size, savvy homeowners recognise the significant impact of enhancements. One such feature is double glazing, which goes beyond its practical function. In property valuation, the advantages of double glazing are clear-cut and contribute to an increased value.

As the sweltering summer months approach, the quest for a cool and comfortable indoor haven becomes a top priority for many homeowners in Australia. In this pursuit, one solution stands out as a game changer: double glazing. Beyond its reputation for energy efficiency, double glazing offers a suite of benefits that make it a remarkable upgrade for the summer season.

Join us as we dive into the many ways double glazing can transform your summer and elevate your home’s overall quality.

Australia is known for its unique and charming homes, many of which have stood for generations, carrying with them unique architecture styles and craftmanship. This can make many homeowners resistant to updates, because they don’t want to change the original aesthetic of their homes. However, with cost of living pressures and population growth, updating your windows could make a massive difference in your energy bills and comfort of your home.

As homeowners, we’re constantly seeking ways to enhance the comfort and
aesthetics of our homes. Plus, with the cost of living on a dramatic rise, finding
sustainable solutions that not only reduce immediate expenses but also provide
long-term savings is paramount. In looking for improvements to make around the house that touch on each of these points, more and more homeowners are
discovering the extensive list of benefits that double glazing your windows can
provide.

Windows play an important role in the function of your home, from keeping your home comfortable to helping you save on energy costs. However, when windows start getting old or are in poor condition, they can do just the opposite. As homeowners, we should be checking the condition of our windows every now and then, to avoid problems such as draughts, increases in energy consumption, furnishing damage, and more that run-down windows can cause.

It’s no secret that energy costs can eat away at your household budget. High energy usage also puts unnecessary pressure on the environment, something we are all trying to stop.

A lot of homeowners are surprised to see moisture build up on their glass after having their windows double glazed. After all, you don’t expect to have to worry about your windows after investing money into them.

 

Double glazing doesn’t last forever. Which means, depending on when your double glazed windows were put in and the quality of the installation, you may have one or more faulty windows without realising it.

 

The whole idea behind getting double glazed windows is to better insulate your home with a glass unit that is thicker and performs better than a single glazed window.

 

Double glazing your timber windows is one of the most effective steps you can take to insulate your home and enjoy all the benefits that come with high-performance windows.

 

One of the most common questions we get asked is how much difference does double glazing make? The simple truth is that double glazing makes a huge difference to the comfort of your home whether it be in hot or cold climates.

 

For keeping heat in during the winter and unwanted heat out in the summer, pretty much the biggest step you can take is to double glaze your windows. Are you wondering exactly how do double glazed windows work?

 

With double glazing, two panels of glass are used rather than only one to create an insulated glass unit, or IGU. The two panels are separated by a small space, between 6mm to 18mm, which can be filled with an insulating gas such as argon.
