Double glazing is often associated with the cold weather climates of Europe or the snowfields. However, its energy-efficient properties also bring a positive and notable impact on the homes built in our temperate Northern Beaches climate.
Double glazing is quite simply two sheets of glass separated by a pocket of air or an inert gas such as argon. It’s this pocket of air or gas that provides the insulation barrier by reducing the thermal convection between the internal and external surfaces of the home.
Consider hot coffee. You pour one cup into a thermos flask and the other into a glass container. Which one will retain its temperature longer? The same concept applies to double glazing and the inside of your home.
