Windows and doors are the most common points of heat loss. The use of Double and Triple glazing reduces the amount of heat that is transmitted through the glass panes. The installation of these windows and sliding doors is also a key factor, since proper installation and closing mechanisms can dramatically reduce heat loss through drafts.
This type of technology is available with all Nest & Invest houses.
We are able to source and incorporate this at the time during the design.
Installing double glazing can cut heat loss through windows by half. Double glazing works by trapping air between two panes of glass creating an insulating barrier that reduces heat loss, noise and condensation.
Customers often look at the investment returns of windows and do not take into account the comfort, security and asthetics they provide. Technolgy has advanced that we are no longer constrained by white PVC and aluminium as the only colours available to us. Multi-coloured PVC is now available as well textures that simulate wooden textures.
Triple glazing is becoming more widely used these days, as customers and manufacturers aim to achieve ever higher levels of insulation and sound insulation.
