I don't have that Alex, but you are welcome to see the energy reports and the window schedules.

Any Questions on Windows and Doors, incl. Energy & Acoustics

Hi Carly
The first does not mention double glazing.
Other than that the second is VERY expensive.
The sindows will be essentially the same.
Our aluminium window double glazed (for comparison) would be $750,…

The main window in question is 2400x1200 so 2.88m2 but the first quote was over $2200 so > $750m2. Is that quote too high in your opinion?
It is a silly…

Hi Amber,
What sort of windows do you have now? Timber or aluminium?

Yes, exactly... Just make sure you compare like with like as far as the glazing is concerned. e.g. 4/12/4 clear.

Double glaze them all, the future may require that, and you won't be saving much anyway.

The spacers are included in the WERS Uw rating, so I would only look at the Uw rating.
It is true that a "warm edge spacer" is more efficient that the…

Don't compare Low-E with double glazing. They perform 2 different functions... Low-E controls solar heat gain i.e. radiant heat. Double glazing controls conducted heat.
The only useful function for low-E glass…
