How Much Do Double Glazing Windows Cost?
For those of you beginning your double glazing journey, welcome! This is an exciting venture, and at Thermotek we know that an important part of this process is understanding how much double glazing will cost you. Double glazing is an investment in your home, your wallet and the future of the planet. It is also no small decision, and we fully respect the need to know the ins and outs of prices before purchasing. Unfortunately there is no one answer when it comes to how much double glazing costs in Australia, with things such as upgrades and customisable features directly affecting the final price. Generally speaking, double glazing will cost $1,000 per square metre for the average customer. Looking at this figure may feel overwhelming, but we are here to help you understand the benefits of double glazing. The lifelong advantages of double glazing windows and doors will see many returns for you and your family, no matter if you’re renovating or building new. Read on to find out more about the cost of double glazing, and all the benefits it brings.
What Are the Benefits of Double Glazing?
Double glazing windows and doors offer a myriad of benefits for your home, office or build. Not only are they fully insulated, they also decrease the cost of your energy bills and help to regulate temperature throughout your home.
Double glazing windows are different from the standard window as they have two panes of glass instead of one. These glass panes are separated by air or insulating gases, helping to keep your home cool in summer and warm in winter. They do this by decreasing the amount of heat lost, or gained, with the additional pane of glass and air in between acting as a buffer.
Double glazing is an energy efficient option for those looking to save on their electricity bills. The added insulation means you don’t need to keep your heating or cooling devices on all day, and can instead enjoy decreased bills year round. This insulation also improves temperature control and noise reduction.
What is uPVC Double Glazing?
uPVC refers to the framing material sometimes used for double glazing windows. At Thermotek Windows & Doors, we always use uPVC as it is a superior product with major benefits.
uPVC is a durable, low maintenance product that is perfect for double glazing products. Not only does it offer a water tight seal, increasing the insulating properties of the windows, it also increases safety and noise reduction. uPVC is one of the many framing options for double glazing windows, and unlike its counterparts, does not need constant maintenance and will not warp over time.
Understanding the Cost of Double Glazing
When it comes to the cost of double glazing, the best and most efficient way of getting a quote is speaking to a double glazing professional. When considering this cost, the factor that most directly determines the price is the size of your windows or doors. You also need to remember that your final quote will include the framing and installation.
When collecting quotes, be sure to do your research on the companies providing them. The last thing you want to do is compromise on quality, and the best way to avoid that is by sourcing from Australian made companies. This way you know you’ll reap the maximum amount of benefits for years to come.
We understand that building or renovating can be a costly venture. This may lead to tough decisions about whether to spend more in the immediate future, or cut back in some areas. The comfort of your home is just as important as your budget, and this is why getting so many quotes is important.
However, it is important to note the potential extra or hidden costs of working with a company who produces their products overseas. Things such as costly replacements, a shorter lifespan and possible miscommunication can all cost you.
Australian made double glazing products may not end up more expensive than if you were to purchase new single pane windows. For example, the installation cost is generally the same if not similar, and the long term financial benefits of double glazing save you money every month for years to come. uPVC double glazed windows also increase the value of your home, from an energy efficiency and style stand point!
Australian Made Double Glazing Windows and Doors
Australians face a multitude of extreme weather conditions every year. These can often be unpredictable and harsh, which puts real strain on your windows and doors. Overseas manufacturers often make their double glazing products for a European climate. When used in an Australian home, the windows and doors wear faster and cannot withstand the Australian conditions the same way they can those overseas. The harsh UV rays can penetrate the windows over time, damaging your floors and furniture. Thermotek’s uPVC windows and doors are Australian made, for Australian homes. Working with an Australian manufacturer allows for an easy customer experience, and quality products that last.
