Can Double Glazing Help to Reduce Your Heating Bill?

Windows are a way to illuminate your Perth home, and are a way of letting in ambient light.

However, they are also a major source of heat, particularly in the summer, and can be a cause of heat loss through winter. Did you know that up to 40% of the energy used to heat your home can be lost through windows? 

In this article we discuss double glazing, and how it may be able to help you reduce your heating bill. 

 

What is double glazing? 

 

Double glazing consists of two glass panels separated by a sealed air gap which helps to reduce the transfer of heat. This then increases the energy efficiency of your Perth home.

 

The science behind double glazing windows

 

Double glazing windows are designed by circulating either normal air or a specialised heavy gas between two panes of glass. While these windows still let in the same amount of sunlight as regular, single-glazed windows, they are far better at retaining the heat inside. 

Older homes that were built prior to passive solar design was even a consideration. These days, most Perth homes are pre-installed with double glazed windows, and is considered a standard feature in a home. This is done in order to increase the energy efficiency of the home. However, if you’re the owner of an older home, and looking to renovate your window system. We cannot recommend double glazing enough!

 

Noise reduction

 

Double glazing offers noise reduction with up to a 70% decrease in noise from outside noise sources which in turn can improve the quality of your sleep. Also, double glazed windows are strong and secure. Therefore, they are a fantastic investment both in savings from reduced energy consumption and potential increases to the resale value of your home.

 

Reduced heat loss

 

Are you aware that up to 40% of the heat in your home can be lost through windows and skylights? This is where double glazing can save the day. It can drastically reduce this heat loss, saving you in the long run. While double glazed windows may cost more to install, almost all of your insulation costs can be saved over the lifetime of double glazed windows.
