Double Glazing Advise

When you look at the finite detail in window design, you miss the critical point... what is the Uw i.e. the overall U value of the whole window.
There are a…

Alternative is double glazing... you are correct about low-E

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
I recommend that you eliminate all other noise possibilities before embarking on changing windows, or glazing. Noise can enter your home through the ceiling, the walls and the floor, and…

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.

Aluminium spacer in double glazed windows

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…

Any glass problems will have been created during glass production. The glass supplier is your friend.
