Single glazed windows vs double glazed windows
While single glazed windows do cost less than their double glazed counterparts, there are many disadvantages. First and foremost, single glazed windows consist of just one window pane. This makes them far less efficient in insulating against heat, cold and noise. This is equally important in both hot and cold climates, where thermal issues can cause discomfort inside your home. Double glazing uses two panes of glass and an air gap – this significantly increase the insulation properties of your windows, making it far easier to maintain a comfortable inside temperature.
Secondly, by having increase insulation, you will reduce the need for artificial cooling or heating via air conditioners or heaters. This in turn saves you money on your energy bills.
Benefits of double glazed windows
There are additional benefits to double glazing, too. These include increased home security with the addition of more robust aluminium or uPVC frames. Plus, a reduction in damage to furniture because of the limited UV rays entering a room through double glazed windows.

“We were at our wits end because of noisy neighbours and were ready to sell, but the new windows and doors from Winsulation reduce the noise by 70 to 80% and we love living in our house again. Don’t hold off…” – Colin, Gold Coast.
“I thought that they did an excellent job, the windows are so much better and have made such a big difference with dimming the noise of traffic on the freeway and also the rooms feel warmer.” – Carol, Tweed Heads West
“Fortitude Valley can be a noisy place, especially at night. The double glazing does a good job of keeping most of that noise outside.” – Chris, Brisbane
“On top of having our business premises along a very noisy road, the heat would penetrate through some of the windows all afternoon. Since Winsulation custom-made and fitted a second layer of glass along two walls with large windows, a much more peaceful atmosphere is present with a wholesome quietness and a comfortable temperature…” – Dietrich, Brisbane
