5 BENEFITS OF DOUBLE GLAZING WINDOWS & DOORS
It’s a well-known fact that windows and doors are a pivotal element in determining a home’s design. They establish a crucial link with the outside world, usher in abundant natural light and airflow, and ultimately enhance the atmosphere of the space.
Whilst some homeowners may opt for a more budget-friendly single-glazed option, let’s delve into some of the core reasons why advantages await those who choose to double glaze their windows and doors.
Ideally, double glazed windows and doors should use toned or low-E glass to improve their performance.
The key differences between single and double glazed windows and doors lies in this crucial gap, and the unique benefits that it creates. Here are just a few…
1. SUITABLE FOR HOT AND COLD CLIMATES
In colder climates like Victoria and Tasmania, double glazed windows and doors are praised for their thermal capabilities. These selections play a crucial role in keeping the chilly weather from infiltrating the home.
Windows and glass doors play a much bigger role in your home’s energy efficiency than you may think. In fact, it’s estimated that almost half of all heat loss during Winter and nearly 90% of heat gain during Summer can come from your windows and doors.
This is where the all-important gap between the double glazed glass comes in – acting as a thermal barrier between your home and the elements. Preventing warm or cool air from escaping, you can maintain a more consistent temperature year-round, despite dramatic changes in climatic conditions.
3. LOWER POWER BILLS? YES PLEASE
Thanks to the ever-changing Australian environment, energy costs continue to soar across the country. Although temperature regulation is at the forefront of our minds during both Summer and Winter, air conditioning manages to consume an astonishing 15% of the country’s total generated power.
That’s right, and over half of the energy used in Australian homes is the result of heating and cooling devices. Unfortunately, keeping the home cool in Summer and warm in Winter through air-conditioning is more unaffordable than ever.
The good news is that installing double-glazed windows and doors is one of the best ways to improve the home’s energy efficiency. So much so, that you’ll save up to 20% more on your energy bills than if you were to utilise single-glazed products.
Not only can double glazing regulate your home’s temperature and energy efficiency – but it can also reduce pesky outside noise! Voices, animals, vehicles, planes, trains, and plenty of other nuisances – double glazed products can block them all out by 60% more than those that have single glazing. (Tip: their effectiveness is increased even further with the addition of acoustic glass!).
That all-important gap between double glazed windows also works to absorb sound energy, reducing the home’s exposure to outside clamour. Take it from the experts at WHO – prolonged noise can contribute to stress, sleep, cognitive problems, and even health conditions such as cardiovascular disease.
5. REDUCE PESKY CONDENSATION
Condensation occurs when the moist air inside your home is exposed to a cooler surface, such as a single glazed window.
Although generally just an annoyance, it does have the potential to cause severe problems for your home if you aren’t careful!
Luckily, double glazing products reduce the likelihood of condensation by removing its key cause – a cold surface of the window. The interior glass pane stays close to room temperature, reducing your condensation risk.

Received extremely helpful advice from Garry Alcorn. He patiently walked us through the range of options available, helping us understand the pricing and product variances. It enabled us to select the products that best suited our needs. His friendly manner put us at ease, and made us feel comfortable asking our long list of questions.

Garry was incredibly helpful when I went in for a quote to re-do my whole house and helped me make difficult decisions using his huge breadth of knowledge and experience. I wouldn’t have thought getting a quote for doors and windows could be a fun experience but it was thanks to Garry. Super professional as well and someone who clearly loves his job.

I have to call out the great service I have received from the staff of Bradnams’s last week for my house window locks. Right from the 1st call to make an enquiry for service with Jennifer Power handling the query and making the booking for me to finally Mark showing up on time and addressing all my concerns for the product installed.

I ordered 2 sliding doors / screens from bradnams from the Nowra show room. The screens arrived a few days later and were fitted by Bradnams technicians. Overall I’m happy with my dealings with the Bradnams. And am very happy with the product they supplied me.

Being a woman that normally visits construction/building related places without my husband, sometimes things are over explained or I am not taken seriously. Refreshingly, the staff at the Kings Park showroom couldn’t be further from any of that, and were a far cry from other experiences I’ve had.

To be honest, I bagged Bradnmans previously on this review site, I wish to retract that after the excellent service (and knowledgable) from Michael (Toowoomba Branch). Michael was friendly, polite, and most of all, knew what he was on about.

Mitchell has been great to deal with and am a frequent customer and love dealing with him as he is super friendly and easy to deal with.

I would encourage anyone who is looking for aluminium windows and doors to include Mitch and Bradnam’s in their considerations. I recently sought quotes for windows and doors. When I contacted Bradnam’s I spoke with Mitch, who immediately and unreservedly provided me with the advice and rough price of the windows and doors that I was after.
Scott F|7 months ago
Mitchell has been great to deal with and none of our changes or additional works have been an issue. I would definitely be happy to work with him again in the future.
