One of the major aspects of any sustainable home is energy efficiency.
That means using the least amount of energy possible to heat or cool the house.
For many existing homes however, the ordinary single-glazed windows present the weakest link.
People in Canberra “are still building new homes with single-glazed windows” starts Karen Porter, founder of Solace Creations.
“We (as a population) are insulating our floor, ceiling and walls and then leaving our windows and doors as a weakness” she continues.
“If double-glazing is used then the home will be better insulated meaning a more comfortable home and lower energy bills.”
It is impossible to argue with her logic.

For an existing home, or for a new one, it’s a straightforward process to get double-glazing installed.
“With existing homes, we visit the home and then design the windows and doors so that airflow is maximised, furniture is taken into account and we also look at how to improve the look of the home” Karen explains.
“With new homes, we draft a windows and door schedule based on all the features of an existing home and also look at how to provide the best insulation for the home through double glazing.”
