What is glazing?
Glazing is the glass in windows and doors and is usually referred to as a lite. The number of windows and glass doors in your home have a significant impact on the thermal performance of your home.
Up to 87% of solar heat can be gained through windows and doors.
Up to 40% of a home’s energy heating can be lost through windows and glass doors
The thermal performance of your home will depend on the extent of heat loss or gain on how well the glass and frame transmit heat from direct sunlight.
There are many different types of glass and frames and different combinations installed in every home in Australia.
These factors contribute significantly to the comfort and energy efficiency of your home.
There are so many different types of windows and glass doors in Australian homes.
The reason for so many window types is because of all the different types of houses in this country, many of them dating back to the late 1800’s and early 1900’s, depending on where people live.
Probably the most popular architectural style home is Modernist style with thousands being built in the 1960’s, 70’s and 80’s.
The vast majority of all these types of homes would contain only single glaze windows and glass doors.
We love our windows, and homes today commonly feature large expanses of windows and glass doors to capture light, cross ventilation, and provide a strong connection to the outdoors.
If you are living in a home with single glazing, you will be feeling cold in winter, hot in summer, and paying high energy bills to try and keep warm and cool.
Let ecoGlaze turn these discomforts around.
The architectural style of your home usually dictates the type of exterior doors.
Like windows, the type of glass entrance doors in your home will depend on it’s architectural style and the era it was built. However, many of the interesting and decorative doors of the past are making a comeback in more recently built homes and renovations.
You may have exterior and interior glass doors in your home. In most cases it is not necessary to insulate an internal glass door.
Many homes have external glass doors, including the front entrance door, exit doors via the laundry or other rooms, or doors onto a deck, verandah, al fresco area or patio. These can be wall to wall glass or ceiling to floor sliding doors, sliding or hinged doors and fixed side lites or high lites.
There is the classic harmony of timber and glass and often decorative glass such as leadlight, particularly in the Edwardian, Victorian and Federation style homes.
Your glass doors add to the aesthetics and increase the visual openness of your home.
