Double Glazing in Perth - What Is It?

Double glazing is where two pieces of glass are fitted together with a space between them. This space,or gap, between the two sheets of glass in double glazed windows is what creates a barrier with insulating properties, for cities like Perth, it is important. The space in the double glazing can be either be a vacuum or filled with a gas like Argon, which is a heavy but inert gas.

What is Secondary or Retrofit Double Glazing?

Secondary double glazing is the term used for the process where a second piece of glass is fitted to pre-existing windows to create a double glazed window. This can be used as a temporary fitting or something more permanent. involves installing supplementary glazing on the inside of existing single-glazed windows – it can be permanent, although often secondary glazing panels are added as a temporary measure.

Double glazing in Perth is usually more costly than retrofit double glazing

In Perth, new double glazing is generally more costly than retrofit double glazing, this is because when installing it new, completely new glazed windows would need to be installed - rather than installing a second glass sheet to single glazed windows.

Double glazing is only effective as an insulating barrier to heat and cold when the space between the double sheets of glass is either a vacuum or filled with the appropriate gas. For this reason you will need a specialist to come out and measure your existing windows so as to custom build windows specially to fit your home in Perth.

Retrofit double glazing is much more cost effective, and although you can sometimes buy DYI kits, they aren't so easy to find in Perth and it is very easy to make mistakes. Getting a professional Perth double glazing company to measure and install your dual glazed windows is highly recommended.

As mentioned above the double glazing windows do need to be created to order specially for your home, however once they are manufactured, a professional double glazing windows installer can fit around three dual glazed windows in one day. Therefore the process is quite quick, but this is definitely not a something to do yourself.

Which sort of double glazing is best for minimising loss of heat?

Increasing the energy efficiency of a home in Perth is the primary reason for replacing existing windows with double glazing. This can help to reduce the cost of energy bills, very topical in Perth at the moment. Both retrofit double glazing and new double glazing do a great job to increase your home windows energy efficiency. This can save the average Perth home quite a lot of money each year in both heating and cooling energy.

Retrofit double glazing gives a better acoustic insulation. Both types of double glazing are also terrific at cutting out noise pollution, however retrofit double glazing is definitely the better of the two in this case, particularly in Perth. Unlike the double-glazing sealed units, the two different pieces of glass in secondary glazing act as independent barriers to the transmission of noise. The greater the cavity between the two glazed panes, the better the dampening effect – so double-glazing which has panes relatively close together is less good at cutting out noise.

Planning permission is not normally required for repairing, fitting or replacing double glazed windows in Perth, except if the building is listed or in a conservation area, in which case you will run into problems, so speak to your local Perth planning authority before installing anything. Secondary glazing does not require planning permission even on listed buildings, therefore it may be your only option if you are looking to make you dual glazed windows more energy efficient and you live in a listed building.
