Double glazing is nothing short of a miracle in making New Zealand homes more comfortable and energy-efficient all year. With double-glazed windows, homeowners can save money on energy, reduce their overall carbon footprint, and keep their homes more insulated and mould-free. But how does the technology function? We’ll go over everything you need to know about double glazing, as well as why it’s a home improvement project worth considering if you don’t already have it.
What Is Double Glazing And How Does It Work?
Double glazing is a feature that can be added to any window or glass door to prevent heat loss in the winter and gain in the summer. Instead of a single pane of glass, double-glazed windows and doors use two panes separated by an air or argon gas layer. This layer is intended to act as an insulator. Convection is the process by which heat is transferred from a hot space to a cold space. A good conductor is required to make this happen. The trapped air between the double-glazed windows has only 67% thermal conductivity, making it a poor heat conductor. Your space will stay warmer for longer because less heat can escape. When argon is used inside double-glazing, heat has a more challenging time passing through, making it more effective.
