Upgrade Your Home with Green Life Windows: The Advantages of Aluminum and Double Glazing

Green Life Windows is proud to provide high-quality, Australian-standard aluminum windows and doors with double glazing that can help you reduce your energy bills and keep your home comfortable all year round. But how exactly do these windows and doors work, and what makes them so effective?

Advantages of Aluminum Windows and Doors

Aluminum is an ideal material for windows and doors due to its strength, durability, and versatility. Its strength-to-weight ratio is higher than any other commonly used material, making it ideal for Australian homes that are subject to harsh weather conditions. Aluminum is also resistant to corrosion, which means it can last for many years with minimal maintenance.

Furthermore, aluminum can be easily shaped and formed to fit any window or door opening, allowing for a wide range of designs and styles. It also offers a greater glass area than other materials, which means more natural light can enter the room.

How Double-Glazing Works

Double glazing is a process where two panes of glass are separated by a gap of air or gas. This gap acts as an insulator, reducing the amount of heat that can pass through the glass. This means that double glazing can help keep your home warm in winter and cool in summer, reducing the amount of energy needed to maintain a comfortable temperature.

At Green Life Windows, we use a special gas-filled layer between the two panes of glass known as a “thermal break.” The gas is usually argon, an inert gas that does not react with other elements. This thermal break is a highly effective insulator, helping to reduce heat transfer and increase energy efficiency.

The thermal break in our windows and doors is achieved by separating the two panes of glass with an insulating spacer bar, which is filled with the gas. This creates an airtight seal that keeps the gas in and the elements out. The thermal break also helps to reduce the amount of condensation that forms on the glass, keeping your windows and doors clear and easy to see through.
