22 May Adding Value to a Home with Beautiful Insulated Glazing Windows
If you’re looking for a window of opportunity, then you’ve come to the right place. That’s because insulated glazing is going to open doors to a brighter future for you and your home.
It’s time to discover the benefits of joining the double glazing revolution. Here’s why installing doubled glazed windows could be one of the best investments you’ll ever make.
What Is Insulated Glazing?
Double glazed windows are those which have two panes of glass. More energy efficient windows contain argon gas which fills the gap between the panes for extra insulating benefits.
Argon is a clear, and odorless gas which is also slow-moving. Once it’s pumped inside the glass unit, it greatly improves thermal efficiency. It reduces the overall transfer of heat between the indoors and outside.
European manufacturers have become particularly skilled at making these types of windows. Many years of investment have led to products which will make your home more energy efficient and reduce noise from entering your home.
Help Save the Planet
We all know there’s a global energy crisis. Double glazing can dramatically reduce energy bills. Today’s double glazing options can have nearly the same insulating value as the walls of your house themselves.
Australia has some extreme climatic conditions. The installation of double glazed windows offers a perfect solution. It’ll help keep your home cool in the summer and warm in the winter. This means maintaining your home at a constant temperature.
Reduce the Impact of Noise
Noise pollution can be a key cause of stress. Installing double glazing can reduce noise from entering the home by up to eighty percent. That can lead to better sleeping patterns and a reduction in mental tension.
Taken together, lower energy bills and a reduction in noise levels are a major selling point for any property. Just being able to offer these two benefits alone is going to add to the value of your home.
Make Your Home More Stylish
One of the first things anyone is going to notice when they arrive at your home is the condition of the windows. If they look tired and old it will immediately reduce the aesthetic quality of the entire property.
Installing double glazed windows is going to improve its appeal straightaway. It will transform the look of your home into one which is fit for the twenty-first century.
Once visitors are inside, they’ll also notice how comfortable the environment feels. There will be consistent temperatures and general calmness. The overall perception of your home is going to improve, making it even more sought after.
A Range of Windows with Added Security
Insulated glazing products range from aluminium doors to flyscreens. If you choose to install uPVC windows, you’re in for a treat. That’s because there is such a wide range of styles and colors to choose from.
You can, for example, select tilt and turn windows. These do not only tilt inwards from the top but can also open sideways like a regular hinged window.
This means that you have far greater choice about how much air you want to let in or out of your home. These types of windows seal and lock on all four sides giving your home greater security.
Keep Safe with Tilt and Turn Windows
Multi-point locking technology and security-enhancing uPVC framing are important. They can help protect your home from unwanted intrusion.
Because of the way the windows can open, the outside pane can be easily cleaned. They’re therefore the ideal choice for windows on the upper levels of buildings.
These will bring light and open up views. They’re ideal for opening up large spaces, such as the facade of the home looking out from a reception room.
These let in lots of light and open outwards using friction stays to lock them in an open position of your choice. Modern and sturdy, they’ll allow you to keep rooms airy and well ventilated.
These will add a bit of old style charm to any home. They’ll allow good ventilation. They’re designed to be resilient against some of the harsher elements of the Australian climate.
Double Hung Windows
These hark back to Georgian times. They’re elegant and practical, sliding both upwards and downwards.
No More Damage from Condensation
Double glazed windows will reduce damage from condensation. If you currently have wooden framed windows with single panes then you may notice a build-up of condensation from time to time.
There are some real downsides as a result of this. Wooden frames are prone to becoming rotten if there is too much moisture around. They can also provide a breeding ground for mould which can be detrimental to one’s health.
The airtight seals and gas that come with uPVC windows will help to block out any moisture and prevent condensation.
uPVC Windows Are Easy to Clean
We’ve already seen how easy it is to clean the outside panes, but it’s also simple to clean the rest of the windows too. Take a soft cloth or sponge to wipe down the frame.
Use a dry, clean cloth which is non-abrasive to dry the frame out. It’s best not to use cream cleaners or scourers. These are abrasive and may over time damage the finish of your windows.
Because double glazed windows are well sealed, they’ll keep more dust out the home making the air purer and cleaning the rest of the home easier.
Extra Peace of Mind
You should always go with a trusted supplier who offers a warranty period of at least ten years.
Ensure too that you select a product that adheres to an appropriate bushfire protection level for the area you live in. Those which conform to Bushfire Attack Level 40 will be suitable for most areas of Australia.
Insulated Glazing Makes Sense
There’s more to insulated glazing than lower energy bills and reduced noise. You’ll benefit from extra security, and give a beautifully modern look to your home as well.
