Double Glazed Windows

Double glazed windows are composed of two panels which are fused in one frame and are separated by a small space. The space can either be filled with air or with a non toxic gas like argon. Manufacturers usually leave a space that measures between twenty millimeters for maximum efficiency. The gap between the panels helps by acting as an insulating barrier therefore helps to slow down the rate in which heat escapes from a domestic or commercial building. There are several factors that one needs to consider when looking for glazed windows and some include the window frame material and suitability of the frame among others. You should also consider getting isotherm installers to install ceiling insulation in your attic for best results.  How do double glazed windows reduce heat loss?

Energy Efficient Air Conditioners

If your air conditioner isn’t a newer, more updated model, you might want to purchase a newer, more energy efficient model. Generally, more energy efficient air conditioners will have an Energy Star label. You are assured that air conditioners bearing this label consume less than 15% of the energy than other new models and up to 30% less than air conditioners that are about ten years old. These models might cost a little more, but they save energy and money in the long-run. You should also consider installing home insulations for best results. Contemporary air conditioner manufacturers are legally required to evaluate and rate their products by energy efficiency. The resulting number of the rating is called SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating). The higher the rating, the more efficient the model and the more you will save on energy costs over the life of the machine. For instance, SEER 13
