While double glazing has been popular in Europe for many years, it is only just taking off across residential areas in Australia. Many Australian families are now starting to enjoy the increased sound proofing and insulation offered by double glazing. While double-glazed windows may cost a little more than standard single-pane windows, they also provide you with many advantages. Below is a guide to 3 benefits of installing double glazing in your home.
Double glazing will reduce your energy bills
Energy prices are only going one way — up! The price of energy is a major concern for the majority of Australian households. Installing double glazing is a way of drastically reducing the amount of heat which is lost as it transfers from the interior of your home to the exterior in cold weather. This reduces your heating bill, as you will not need to warm your home as often, as it will retain heat.
Double glazing will also help to keep your home cool in summer by forming a barrier against outdoor heat. This means you will not need to use your HVAC system as often.
Double glazing will extend the life of your HVAC system
Installing double glazing will also help to extend the life of the HVAC system in your home. The rate at which the HVAC system on your home will need to be serviced or repaired will largely depend on how often it is used. Because double glazing means that you do not need to warm or cool your home as frequently as you did before, your HVAC system will be subject to less wear and tear.
Double glazing will increase the value of your home
Because of the increasing awareness around energy efficiency and humankind's impact on the environment, double glazing is now a very attractive feature in any home. If you decide to sell, installing double-glazed windows will make your property very desirable to any prospective buyer. This will increase the value of your home compared to properties which do not feature double-glazed windows.
Double-glazed windows are a great addition to any home and will help to make the interior of your home a more comfortable and inviting place for you and the rest of your family to enjoy. Double-glazed windows will also help you to save money while adding to the resale value of your home.
