Double Glazing - Cosy Winters and Cool Summers
Imagine year round comfort indoors with minimal or no heating or air conditioning!
Your home doesn't have to freeze in winter and swelter in summer. And your energy bills don't need to go through the roof either, as you try to keep temperatures bearable. In fact, when properly insulated, all your rooms will be of a similar temperature ... A great way to live!
The secret to proper insulation? It’s double glazing windows. Your windows represent the weakest (thermal) link in your home.
Winter without curtains, thanks to the insulating power of CertainTeed double glazed windows.
In winter, your home loses about 49% of its warmth through single glazed windows alone. EVERY single window is losing heat. Imagine that. When you’re ramping up your thermostat (and your energy bills) just to keep warm, you’re actually heating the whole neighbourhood! This comes as a shock to many people. Yet the facts are there, and energy costs will continue to rise annually.

What about summer? Would you ever think of having a 2 bar heater on in summer?
In summer, your windows conduct the heat of the sun, and can actually be responsible for up to 87% of your home's heat gain. You’re already sweltering, and every two square meters of glass is giving you the same heat as a two bar radiator so you need the same wattage from an air conditioner to combat the radiator… and that’s ‘madness’. It’s not only prohibitively expensive, it is environmentally unsustainable. The answer is to simply shade the glass on the outside and to install CertainTeed Double Glazed Windows.
Here’s how we give you protection against the cold and sweltering heat by double glazing windows.
We build an air gap of 16mm into our windows between the two panes. This precise gap is designed to deliver the most efficient insulation possible. If the gap is too close, the heat is easily transferred between the panes. If the gap is too wide, internal convection disrupts the insulating effectiveness.
The unique and innovative design technology CertainTeed using when double glazing windows also brings
you the remarkable benefits of condensation control.

“When it’s cold and chilly outside, down to minus 5°C, it’s typically 15°C inside. Without heating. And last summer when the temperature was 40°C outside, our maximum inside temperature was 27°C.”
