5 BENEFITS OF DOUBLE GLAZING WINDOWS & DOORS
It’s no secret that windows and doors are a vital element of a home’s design. They provide a connection with the outside world, introduce natural light and airflow, and contribute to the overall aesthetic. There is no shortage of window and door products to choose from these days, and many homeowners opt for the more affordable standard single-glazed windows and doors. In this blog, we explore the 5 benefits of selecting double glazing for windows & doors.
The gap is hermetically sealed and filled with argon to provide an added layer of insulation. Ideally, double glazed windows and doors should use toned or low-E glass to improve their performance.
Structurally, the gap between these separated panes is the critical difference between double-glazed and single-glazed windows and doors. Yet, the real difference lies in the unique benefits of double glazing.
SUITABLE FOR HOT AND COLD CLIMATES
Double-glazed windows and doors are popular in colder climates such as Victoria and Tasmania.
Still, many people don’t realise they are an incredibly energy-efficient solution for all Australian climates.
While some energy-efficient products can only reduce heat loss or gain—or both—inefficiently, quality double glazing is different.
Its unique insulation properties keep the home cooler in summer and warmer in winter by limiting the hot or cold airflow between the two panes. Not only does this make the home comfortable year-round, but it also helps minimise reliance on artificial heating and cooling.
ENJOY YEAR-ROUND COMFORT
Windows and glass doors play a crucial role in your home’s energy efficiency.
The unique design of double-glazed products insulates against heat and cold up to four times more effectively than single-glazed windows and doors.
The space between the two panes of glass acts as a thermal barrier between your home and the outside environment. It prevents warm or cool air from escaping, maintaining a steadier temperature and insulating you from the effects of climatic extremes.
Australians pay the highest energy prices in the world, two to three times more than American households.
The good news is that installing double-glazed windows and doors is one of the most effective ways to make a home more energy-efficient.
Double gazing is such an effective insulator that it can reduce your need for electrical temperature control. This design feature can decrease your power bills by more than 20% compared to single-glazed windows, while also helping the environment.
Condensation occurs when the moist air inside your home is exposed to a cooler surface’ such as a single glazed window.
While condensation is generally just an annoyance, it does have the potential to cause severe problems for your home.
Double glazing products reduce the likelihood of condensation by removing its key cause – a cold window. The interior glass pane stays close to room temperature, reducing your condensation risk.
TYPES OF WINDOWS & DOORS
Double glazing is available in many types of windows and doors. From a traditional style like the double hung window to the popular sliding door or the luxurious bi-fold door, there’s a design and configuration to suit every style of home. You can also choose different coloured glass and hardware to match or complement the window and doors, as well as your internal walls and flooring.
Thanks to their design, our signature range are available in bigger sizes than most windows and doors you’ll find on the market. And importantly, they’re available in double glazing.
COST OF DOUBLE GLAZING VS SINGLE GLAZING
As you can see, there are several benefits to choosing double-glazed windows and doors for your home.
Is the cost of double glazed windows worth it? If lower electricity bills, year-round comfort and noise reduction are what you’re looking for, double glazing windows are a wise investment.

Thank you Michael of the Hervey Bay store. You had closed up when I arrived yesterday and yet you asked me if you could help? I explained that I had come over from Maryborough as my wife had a medical appointment and showed a print of the part I was chasing. You went back inside and spoke with Brendan and came out with the part.

I went to see Bradnams off the back of a referral made by a friend …. and the service I received from Gary was exceptional. Very thorough and knowledgeable and is not there to just give you a quote but create an experience… Reasonably priced too compared to some quotes I had already received. More workplaces need people like Gary working for them….

Recently got a new shower screen installed. From first contact through quoting right to installation they are true professionals and hold themselves to the highest standard. Huge kudos to the guy who installed his passion for top quality finish didn’t go unnoticed. Don’t waste your time with anyone else these guys are the real deal.
Needed a lock fixed on glass sliding door, the service technician came out at earliest possible time considering Covid Restrictions and was both punctual and efficient. Very happy with the service provided.
I would like to thank Michelle for her professional and effficient service. I have been having trouble with my front door and two technicians came on time this morning (with a call first to tell me their arrival time) and fixed the door. I had several other questions for them (about windows) and they answered those easily too. So, a successful morning! I am impressed.

Great service for the repair of our showerscreen doors. It took a couple of weeks ( only because they are so busy, which is a good sign) but were true to their word and fixed the problem within a couple of days. Thanks to Raylene and Matt. Highly recommend.
