How glazing can help in energy and cost savings?

Glazing provides homes and buildings with light, warmth, and ventilation. The same glazing can also negatively impact a building’s energy efficiency.

The best way to reduce energy costs by installing energy-efficient glazing or windows for your home or building.  

Glazing primarily allows daylight to enter buildings; this in turn improves residents’ well being and augments their productivity. It also reduces the energy used for artificial lighting. It is important that the glazing system enables ample daylight to enter without the accompanying heat and glare. There are many ways in which this can be achieved. With proper selection and orientation, energy efficient glazing can help provide all round comfort and reduce energy consumption.

The energy efficiency of a building is greatly impacted by the windows and other glazed external surfaces. Using advanced glazing solutions can significantly reduce the need for heating and cooling the buildings, thereby reducing energy consumption and associated CO2 emissions.

BENEFITS OF ENERGY-EFFICIENT GLAZING

• Smaller energy bills

• Smaller carbon footprint

• More comfortable home: Energy-efficient glazing reduces heat loss through windows.

• Reduced condensation: Energy-efficient glazing reduces condensation build-up on the inside of windows.

INSTALLATION

Proper installation is essential for any energy-efficient window to ensure energy efficiency. Therefore, always have a professional install your windows.

Window installation may vary depending on the type of window or the construction of the house. Windows should always be installed according to the manufacturer’s recommendations and proper air sealing is to be ensured during installation, for the windows to perform correctly.
