Glazing specialist Express Glass offers two new glass products designed
to dramatically reduce heat loss within the home or office environment,
reducing energy consumption and cost. Express Glass is a specialist provider of
building glass replacement and associated services Australia wide.
When rising energy bills become an issue this winter, it is important to
investigate how much heat is being lost through windows. Regular single panel
glass windows facilitate internal heat loss from within the building.
Adrian Grocott, Managing Director of Express Glass explains that replacing
the current glass with thermally efficient glass products can dramatically
reduce the homeowner’s energy bills and create a far more comfortable internal
environment. The energy efficient glass continues to work for the life of the
Low E or Low Emissivity glass and Insulated Glass Units (IGU), better
known as double glazing are two glass window products that will drastically
reduce a home’s energy loss in winter.
Low E glass improves a window’s insulation in a single sheet of glass,
with its transparent and durable coating directing heat back towards its source.
Insulated glass unit or double glazing is a factory-sealed unit that
uses a second layer of glass to form an insulating barrier. An IGU can utilise
Low E glass to create some of most thermally efficient glass products available
in the market.
Mr Grocott advises that home owners in the cooler
regions of southern Australia should choose glass that reduces heat loss and
promotes solar heat gain in winter. They can also consult with an accredited
glazier to find the best thermally efficient window solution.
