Thermawood Reduces Condensation
Thermawood Retro-fit Double Glazing remains substantially warmer than single glazing. Therefore, condensation is dramatically reduced. Condensation forms when warm air containing moisture meets a cold surface cold enough for dew point to be reached. Double Glazing enables a thermal barrier to form between your home interior and the cold outdoors.
Low E Glass for Maximum Effect
The IGU units can use any type of glass however, for maximum effect we recommend using Low E (low Emissivity) Glass and Argon gas in the IGU. This will dramatically improve warmth and reduce energy costs by significant amounts when compared to a standard glass unit. The Low E glass has a high performance transparent coating that drastically reduces heat transfer inside and out.
Your home is more desirable when it comes time to sell your property as the original character look is still maintained and thus the architectural aesthetics of your home are not compromised.
Good for the Environment
Double Glazing can reduce your energy consumption, saving money and assisting in saving energy contributing to a healthier nation. Many older homes use a much greater amount of energy to both heat and cool due to poor insulation qualities. Double Glazing can substantially reduce the overall costs by retaining heat during winter and cooler during summer, making your home much more energy efficient and creating a much healthier environment for your family.
Improved Air Quality
Teamed with high performing insulation, Thermawood can create an optimal, well ventilated environment that has a high level of Indoor Air Quality (IAQ). The World Health Organisation recommends that the optimal indoor temperature for good health should be between 18ºC and 21ºC. A desirable IAQ will ensure that is will not cause or aggravate illness in building occupants while also securing a suitable level of thermo-comfort.
