One of the best things you can do for your house is double glaze your windows and doors. Unlike traditional NZ homes, double glazing offers two panes of glass with a small space in between, offering an extra layer of protection and insulation.
While a lot of Kiwis know that double glazed windows helps keep your house warm, they don’t realise the many other advantages they offer. So, the team at Ryan Double Glazing has created a list of five surprising benefits of double glazing your home.
Those beautiful bay windows and French doors are some of the biggest thieves of comfort in your home. That extra layer of insulation from double glazing obviously helps keep your house warm in winter – but did you know it will also keep you cooler in summer? Double glazing doors and windows acts as a warm air bodyguard – keeping it inside during cold months and outside during hot ones.
Condensation appears on the inside of your windows when they get colder than the air inside your home. With two panes of glass, the interior window doesn’t get as cold, so you’ll notice less moisture and fewer water droplets streaking your windows.
Open up those curtains and let the beautiful Tauranga sunshine stream in! Double glazing windows and doors traps the warm air inside your home, which means your heater won’t have to work as hard to keep you warm. It’ll be a pleasant surprise on your next energy bill.
The sun’s UV rays are so strong that they easily penetrate single panes of glass, which over times cause the photos and paintings hung on your walls to fade. Double glazing doors and windows blocks out far more UV radiation, keeping your artwork bright and crisp. Oh, and the same goes for your couches, chairs and carpets, too.
Our customers are often surprised that, when they install or retrofit double glazing, it improves indoor acoustics and makes their house far quieter. Excellent for nearby traffic, trains or noisy neighbours, double glazing windows doesn’t just protect you from the cold, but from sound as well.
Gone are the days where Kiwis accept cold, damp homes – today’s house hunters are looking not just for modern kitchens and beautiful bedrooms, but warmth and comfort too. Whether it’s a new build or you plan to retrofit an older one, double glazing makes your house more appealing to buyers.
