Besides giving your property value a little push, what are the additional benefits of installing double glazed windows at home? Well, there are too many to list in a single article, but we picked a handful of the most important ones and put this blog post together to help you make up your mind.

Read on, install double glazed windows and live a better life. Your house had never been so comfortable , quiet , secure, and easy to maintain before.

Energy Efficiency

The first and most important reason why people install double glazed windows in Australia is energy efficiency. This is takeout from the design itself because the insulation that the gap between glasses provides is .

Moreover, energy efficiency works in winter and summer helping you protect your family from extreme temperatures which results in a reduction in energy costs.. This is because you´ll reduce the use of air conditioning systems and heating devices.

Let me explain to you why this happens. Double glazed windows feature two panes of glass, separated by an aluminium spacer. The Gap between the glass panels works to insulate,  and helping to keep the temperate in your house more stable In other words, during winter the heat won´t exit your home through the windows, as quickly, making it more comfortable for your family.

On the other hand, when you turn on the air conditioning in summer you can significantly reduce the speed with which the cold goes  through the window. Instead, it will hit the window and come back in because of the double glazed windows’ magnificent insulation. 

As a result, you´ll have your air conditioning system on for smaller periods of time keeping your house cooler. You’ll notice a drastic change in your utility bills in both seasons.

With Gas Or Without Gas?

Double glazed products are energy efficient windows that can have nothing but only air in the gap or can include some form of gas, usually argon. This gas will provide better retention for the heat inside your house. Thus, if you want to maximise your investment and keep as much heat inside as possible, you should look for argon-filled double glazed windows.

Sound Insulation

The gap between the windows stops cold and warmth from escaping but it also reduces noise transfer into the home. This acoustic phenomenon is very commonly found among the biggest recording studios in the world. For example, the classic Capitol Records building utilises double glazed windows to separate the control room from the live room.

They didn’t choose double glazed windows for any other reason than because it is the best way to insulate sound. For example, if you happen to live in an apartment with a balcony that is close to the streets, you can insulate outside noise and minimise it from reaching the inside of your home by installing double glazed windows.

On the other hand, if you are, let’s say, a music lover, a movie lover, or even a musician; a double glazed window will allow you to pump up the volume without disturbing neighbours as much.

More Secure

Installing double glazed windows in your home can mean increasing the security of the house. Indeed, double-glazed windows are more difficult to break into. This is because of the double glass structure but also some additional measures that windows can include.

  • Laminated glass – Great for added security as well as sound insulation.
  • Sliding secondary windows – Can add one more layer of protection and insulation for your home.
  • Lockable handles & security bolts – These can be found in secondary windows adding security to your home.
  • Sprung catch locks – Most of these security measures fasten automatically, making windows more secure.

Finally, and in addition to the above, some insurance companies recognise double glazed windows as security measures. This sometimes translates into a reduced insurance fee because your property is more difficult to break into. 

So, to the savings you make in your utility bills, you can also add the savings to your insurance policy.

Quick, Unobtrusive Installation & Low Maintenance

A very common line when talking about double glazed windows is “my house has got traditional windows, I can’t ruin the aesthetics.” Well, if that sounds like you, the good news is coming your way since models like sliding-sash, timber windows will help you add the double-glazed effect to your house without ruining its original aesthetics or removing old windows but enjoying all the benefits of modern technology.

This unobtrusive installation is coupled with the ease of installation. Indeed, if you hire a company that has been doing it for decades, chances are the work will be done before you even know. 

Finally, the maintenance of the double glazed windows once installed is not a hard endeavour. Only a quick clean from the inside and the outside should be enough. A perfectly installed double-glazed window with argon or air should not gather any particles in the gap; it should be sealed from both sides.

Reduce Your Carbon Footprint

Installing energy-efficient windows in your home means helping the environment. Indeed, you´ll be reducing your carbon footprint because you´ll be reducing your heating and air conditioning use. Spending less energy in keeping you warm and cold not only lowers your expenses but also helps fight back against global warming.
