why is double glazing so important for winter image


Winter has arrived in Australia, and for many of us, that means increasingly lower temperatures and expensive bills. As the temperature drops, it can be easy to worry about managing the cost of heating your home or office for the coming months. While there are a few energy saving solutions available to you, nothing compares to double glazing. Double glazing is a permanent, quality solution for those wishing to reduce their energy costs, and regulate the temperature inside their home throughout winter and summer. Not only is double glazing stronger than single pane glass, it increases the energy efficiency of your home and creates a lasting barrier between you and the elements.


Double glazing can be the life-changing solution you need to stay warm and safe this winter, while also providing you with lowered energy costs!


How does double glazing work?

Most of us know that double glazing helps to keep you warm in winter, and cool in summer. But how exactly does double glazing work? Windows play a major part in the design and running of your home, and are responsible for the heat retention, or loss, of your residence. Created as a solution for heat loss, double glazed windows save the homeowner money, while also leaving a positive impact on the environment.


Double glazing windows have two panes of glass, separated by an insulated space. This insulated gap provides noise cancelling properties, making your home both warmer and quieter. There is no obstruction of view in double glazing windows; your visibility will remain the same as single paned glass! At Thermotek, our double glazing window frames comprise multiple chambers to deliver a superior level of insulation and energy efficiency.


No matter if you want to save money on your home or office bills, or have a positive impact on the environment, double glazing is the solution for you!


Tackling winter with double glazing

Double glazing is most valuable, and efficient, throughout the winter months. When the air outside your home is cool, and your heater is creating warm air inside, single panes will draw the warmth through the glass, letting your heat escape. This heat loss is dramatically reduced with double glazed windows. When there are two panes of glass, the amount of heat lost is significantly lowered as the gap between panes acts as an insulator, saving you money in the short and long term.


In winter, the most important thing is being able to keep the heat inside your home consistent and regulated. Running multiple heaters might help you stay warm, but it can often feel like a losing battle as the weather outside gets colder and saps more heat from inside your home. Double glazing windows help keep the warmth inside your home, creating a barrier between you and the freezing temperatures. Not only will you notice a reduction in energy costs, you will also reap the benefits of a consistently warm and comfortable home!


Cost effective temperature control

Double glazing is an investment for life, and will save you money for years into the future. Double glazing not only saves you money during winter, but year round – you will be thankful to your windows each time your electricity bill arrives! Because of this, double glazing is one of the most cost effective ways to reduce your expenses, no matter if you’re wanting double glazing for your home or office building.


By installing double glazing windows, not only are you going to see reduced energy costs, but you will also have increased temperature control throughout your home. Creating a comfortable, consistent temperature is essential throughout winter, as there is nothing worse than leaving a warm room to find the rest of your home is freezing cold! Double glazing dramatically reduces heat loss, and provides you with a cosy and comfortable home or office all year round.


Consumers are often aware and concerned about the cost of their bills, especially if they are looking to move or buy. Both builders and designers should be aware that by using double glazing in their builds they will ensure that the property value remains high for future buyers. Not only that, but your property will be more environmentally sustainable, which will help you appeal to a wide audience.


Double glazing and sustainability

It is true that running a heater all winter uses a lot of electricity. By upgrading to double glazing and lowering your energy usage, you are making a positive impact on the environment around you. At Thermotek, we use uPVC for our window frames, which is both recyclable and long lasting, meaning less waste and a smaller economic footprint. If you are passionate about the environment, or simply want a product that can withstand Australian conditions, then our double glazing windows are sure to tick all your boxes.
