Double glazing in Canberra in 2014

By Enezeusa 12 May 2014 48

An update… The last thread about it is from 2011.

Does anyone have recommendations about double glazing?

Cheers.

I know this is an old thread and there’s already a lot of great info on here, but if you can’t be bothered to DIY and want to have it done professionally, check out https://malplas.com.au/

We’ve been using them for years and they’ve always done an ace job.

    Maybe they’re great, but I’ve looked at their website in the past, and looking at it again, it’s just as bad. I would like to see some examples of their work before I bother picking up the phone.

Are we allowed to mention a business name on here without being banished? last time I was on a forum and recommended someone I got sin binned, can’t understand why as the question was “who can recommend”

Does argon gas in between the two panes of glass make any difference?

Not in canberra.

So you’re claiming that the laws of physics operate differently in Canberra? Hope you have a source for that.

Canberra isn’t very cold, so the sorts of double glazing niceties that matter in Trondheim and Skarfskerry may not be worth extra cost where the coldest-case-scenario is around minus 8.5.

What about heating and cooling costs, in Canberra? Not too extreme, but could still be enough to make some savings. Some calculation along those lines. I expect there’s something to it.

As for Argon, it’s a noble gas. Doesn’t interact with other stuff (or even itself I think?). It’s like a bunch of silent vow monks. That’d make a good insulator. Seems about right.

(A vacuum would do better, but Argon pays better rent for the space).

Didn’t know it was used in windows. Interesting to bring that up, dungfungus.
