It’s time to discover the benefits of joining the double-glazing revolution. Here at Ecovue, we believe that installing doubled-glazed windows could be one of the best investments you’ll ever make. Here’s why:

What Is Insulated Glazing?

Double-glazed windows are those which have two panes of glass. More energy-efficient windows contain argon gas, filling the gap between the panes for extra insulating benefits.

Argon is a clear and odourless 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.

Australia has some extreme climatic conditions. The installation of double-glazed windows offers a perfect solution. It’ll help you regulate your home's temperature, keeping it cool in the summer and warm in the winter.

Reduce the Impact of Noise

Noise pollution can be a key cause of stress, but 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 major selling points for any property. Just being able to offer these two benefits alone will add to your home's value.

Make Your Home More Stylish

One of the first things anyone will 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 your home's look into one that 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 will improve, making it even more sought after.

A Range of Windows with Added Security

Insulated glazing products range from aluminium doors to flyscreens. You're in for a treat if you install uPVC windows; there is a wide range of styles and colours to choose from.

Keep Safe with Tilt and Turn Windows

You can, for example, select tilt and turn windows. These not only tilt inwards from the top but can also open sideways like a regular hinged window. This means you have far greater choice about how much air you want to let in or out of your home. These windows seal and lock on all four sides, giving your home greater security.

Because of the way the windows open, you can easily clean the outer pane. They’re the ideal choice for windows on the upper levels of buildings.

Awning Windows

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.

Casement Windows

Casement windows 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. Double-hung windows are 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 rot if there is too much moisture around them. They can also provide a breeding ground for mould, which can harm 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 damage the finish of your windows.

Because double-glazed windows are well sealed, they’ll keep more dust out of the home. This will make the air purer and make cleaning 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 that you also select a product that adheres to an appropriate bushfire protection level for your area. 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.If you wish to upgrade to double glazing, get in touch today. Our experts are always happy to talk.
