Ever tried to measure you “carbon Footprint” in the world? Or wondered if you might build your very own Eco friendly house in the middle of nowhere? Interested in Biofuel, wind power or solar energy? Well, it might surprise you to learn that double glazing your home, wherever it is in the world, can both enhance the original building and give you plenty of “Brownie points” in Eco Construction.
We all want to make maximum use of natural daylight and one way to do that is install floor to ceiling Double Glazing. This will flood indoor space with natural light and you will always save on energy wasting light bulbs. When there’s too much bright light flooding in, you can install recessed blinds to provide shade. It’s proven that Double Glazing will also provide the correct and best thermal insulation for your home.
The use of timber framed doors and windows may be more eco-friendly on the face of it, but how many forests have been destroyed and will need to be ravaged again, in order to keep the quality of the frames up to scratch over the years? Once your Double Glazing firm has installed the frames, they will need no more upkeep for the rest of their lives.
Create an eco-stable home using the newly developed window technology known as “Low e”. This entails coating the window panes with a microscopically thin layer of metallic oxide and reflects heat back into the building.
Used in conjunction with green building methods and materials, Double Glazing can reduce carbon emissions, help address global climate change and create a sustainable future. You’re saving money and saving the planet.
