Single glazed vs double glazed windows

In Queensland we can experience a wide variety of weather conditions throughout the year. From scorching hot summer days to freezing winter mornings, your glazing can play a huge role in controlling the temperature and energy efficiency of your home or office. To help you choose the glazing option for your home or office, here is some important info from our team of glaziers.

Single glazed windows

Single glazing is made using a single pane of glass. Single glazed windows are generally between 3mm to 10mm deep, meaning the only thing insulating you from outdoors is a few millimetres. A single glazed window is around 20 times less efficient at providing heat loss or storage than a professionally insulated wall.

Double glazed windows

Double glazing, on the other hand, is comprised of two (or more) separate panes of glass, separated by a small vacuum. The vacuum space provides your windows with an insulating barrier that increases thermal efficiency. This means that your home or office will stay warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.

What are the benefits of double glazing?

The most obvious benefit of double glazing is its ability to improve your energy efficiency. If your home or office uses air conditioning or central climate control systems, then double glazing can trap in heat generated in winter to keep you nice and snug. Double glazing also reduces the amount of UV rays and amount of radiant heat that enters your home in summer.

Looking to control the temperature of your home or office? Our glaziers specialise in double glazing in the Logan, Shailer Park & South Brisbane area. We can install double glazing with two or more glass panels to improve the energy efficiency of your home or office. So, if you need a quality glazier, call our team today.
