Double glazing is nothing short of a miracle in terms of making New Zealand houses more pleasant and energy-efficient throughout the year. Homeowners may save money on energy, lower their total carbon footprint, and keep their houses better insulated and mould-free by installing double-glazed windows. But how does the technology work? We’ll go over everything you need to know about double glazing, as well as why it’s a home improvement project you should think about if you don’t already have it.
What Exactly Is Double Glazing And How Does It Work?
A feature that may be added to any window or glass door to reduce heat loss in the winter and gain in the summer is double glazing. Double-glazed windows and doors employ two panes of glass separated by an air or argon gas layer instead of a single pane. This layer’s purpose is to function as an insulator. Convection is the process of transferring heat from a hot to a cold environment. To make this happen, a competent conductor is necessary. The trapped air between the double-glazed windows has a thermal conductivity of just 67%, making it an inefficient heat conductor. Because less heat may leave, your area will stay warmer for longer. Heat has a more difficult time going through double-glazing when argon is employed, making it more effective.
