How Double Glazing your home can considerably help you Combat Rising Energy Bills.
With all the news (1) coverage of High Energy prices we don’t have to remind you that here in Australia we pay some of the highest in the world, for both electricity and gas. There is a great demand for Cooling & Heating our homes (especially in Melbourne where we can experience 4 seasons in 24hrs).
Air Conditioning costs are becoming more difficult to bear.
Did you know that up to 87% of heat is gained (and up to 40% is lost) through single glazing (2). With our efforts to cool our homes it is natural for us to reach for the air conditioner to give us that needed respite from the heat and likewise when the temperatures drop, we turn on the heaters.
Unfortunately the reality based on the above facts is that when we turn on the air conditioners in our homes with single glazing windows and doors, we are basically losing over half of the cooling to the outside as the cooling passes through the single pane glass.
Just imagine how much wasted energy and money you are throwing away due to in efficient single glazing!
