Overview
Canberra is one of the coldest cities in Australia and yet we single glaze most of our new homes still. We insulate our walls, ceiling and floors then put a single pane of glass in for windows and doors. This single piece of glass is not insulated and is where most of our heat will escape from This ebook will explain what you need to do to have a more comfortable home that is insulated. Once you have lived in a high energy rated home, you will never chose to have a home that is single glazed again. Join us on a discovery of how you can improve your home through double glazing,
Description
Double glazing has many advantages, including reducing noise transfer, increasing your insulation and saving on energy bills and improving the value of your home. As the coldest city in Australia we should be doing everything possible to have comfortable homes during both winter and summer. This book looks at what you need to do to comply with the Australian Standard, how do you know what your energy rating is for your windows, what windows suite bushfire areas and how you can maximise and improve the major weakness in your home.
About the author
Karen has owned a double glazing business for over 10 years now and has been educating the Canberra community since this time. Karen is a mother of 5 and was previously a public servant for 22 years.
