With double glazing commonplace all over the world, you may already have some experience with Double Glazing. But to keep things simple they are made out of two layers of glass with either air or a created gas vacuum space inbetween. Double Glazing was initially developed to provide superior insulation for residential and commercial spaces. Today we are going to focus on the residential application.

As mentioned above double glazing number one and original function is to provide better insulation that the traditional Australian 3mm single glazed window with an aluminium frame. A double glazed window will provide a better barrier and if installed correctly a better seal to reduce the amount of heat transfer (either way) from or to the home. This way your house will either stay cooler for longer in our harsh West Australian summers or warmer during the winter when you have the fire on. The superior insulation provided by the double glazed window will allow you to enjoy the seasons as they occur and reduce both heating and cooling bills throughout the year.

The second huge benefit from double glazing over their single glazed counterparts is noise reduction. Without even turning to an acoustic glass, standard double glazing provides an enormous step up in reducing noise, keeping either your conversations within your home or keeping those rowdy Friday night suburb parties from disturbing your well deserved sleep. They can also help if you live closer to a main road, train line or airport. When considering double glazing for noise it is really vital to discuss this with an expert.

Double Glazing is much harder and way nosier to gain entry through and can provide an nice deterrent to the local crook. They are also significantly harder to force open from the outside, you can also utilise limited and/or toughned glass to take this a step further. If security is a concern for you and your home ask an Climateframe representative about security screens or increased number of locking points to give you more peace of mind.As mentioned above reduced energy bills, with better insulation you will need less heating or cooling to maintain a more comfortable internal temperature inside the home. As the double glazed windows reduce heat transfer from both inside to outside or outside to inside this means you will use less power over the course of a day or night, this translates to a significant reduction in energy consumption saving you hard earned Aussie dollars.
