WHAT IS DOUBLE GLAZING?
The commonly-known term 'double glazing' refers to the use of two separate pieces of glass held at a distance at a predetermined width by an edge sealer. We bond this 'sandwich' together with a sealant. The trapped air space that is created between the two sheets of glass assists in preventing thermal and acoustic transfer through the unit. The completed glass panel is called an Insulated Glass Unit (IGU).
Insulated Glass Units are then either fitted into new aluminium joinery or retrofitted into your house/building, just like any single pane of glass is installed.
BENEFITS OF DOUBLE GLAZING:
Double glazing increases the insulation properties of your home/building. It also reduces noise pollution, increases security and will reduce condensation. The real effect takes place if you select the right glass types for the purpose.
To the end user's advantage:
- Warmer in the winter (Reduces heat loss)
- Cooler in summer ( Reduces heat gain)
- Increases security
- Reduces noise (from outside)
- Reduces condensation
- Energy savings
- Enhance resale value
- Improves your lifestyle
IS DOUBLE GLAZING NECESSARY?
The Government has recently introduced the new building standard of every new home to have double glazing. This establishment is because of the recognised reducing effects that single glazed windows produced.
A single pane of glass provides very poor insulation because glass is a poor conductor of heat. Therefore, most of your heat goes straight out the window, resulting in you having to increase the amount of heating energy to maintain comfortable temperature inside.
The answer is, yes, double glazing is necessary in new homes/buildings.
For an older home, if you aren't experiencing comfortable temperatures all year round, we would recommend a 'retrofit' option. This simple process is replacing your single glazed windows with double glazed units. We recommend you contact www.brewerjoinery.co.nz for further assistance with 'retro-fitting' your home with double glazing.
