Stop Noise retrofit double glazing is a cheaper alternative compared to more expensive replacement double glazed windows. Retrofitting a secondary window onto the existing window frame can produce a sound reduction of up to 70% which is comparable in insulation to a brick veneer wall. The retrofit double glazing is excellent for properties that have heritage listings and may have problems with body corporate.
The Stop Noise retrofit system can not be seen from outside, so it does not change the appearance of the existing windows. The cost of retrofitting is about half the price of replacement double glazing. The cost of fitting the secondary glazing system is offset by the savings you will make in heating & cooling bills. The retrofit system is a noise product and an excellent insulation product. If you have a condensation problem, this system can help to reduce this as well.
As Melbourne winters do get quite cold, along with the comfort of soundproofing, reduced energy bills are also a bonus of the retrofit double glazing system. For more information on how we can help you, call Stop Noise on free call 1800 940 466 for sound advice.
How a double glazing system works
If you already have an existing window then our double glazed window system can get installed easily in your property.
On your existing window we add our double glazed window system onto your existing windows to dramatically reduce cold drafts which hit the outside of a window. So during the winter, you’ll prevent heat loss going out of your home.
At Stop Noise, we create our double glazed windows by adding a secondary glass window and using your existing glass which is why adding double glazed windows will keep your costs down. The two parts of glass get separated by a large gap of air which acts as extra insulation for your home. The large air gap creates a barrier against noise and the outside temperatures.
We can glaze any window frame
We can convert both timber, steel windows and aluminium window frames too.
When converting your existing windows to double glazed windows we don’t remove the existing glass we just easily add our secondary glazed system to them.
When converting existing aluminium windows, we measure the area and create the secondary glass window to the exact specifications at our Melbourne manufacturing plant. The second glass pane gets installed behind your original single glazed existing glass panel, which means it’s a highly cost-effective process because you’ll maintain your current single glazed piece of glass.
Double glazing windows make your home comfortable throughout the unpredictable Melbourne seasons and helps to keep it especially toasty throughout the cold winter months.
How window double glazing makes a difference in your home
Did you know that a single piece of glass actually gives inadequate insulation? Glass is an excellent transmitter of heat which means the temperature inside a room goes straight out the window. When you install double glazing on your existing windows, it prevents heat loss because the layer of air between the pieces of glass stops the heat leaving your home. After all, the air is a poor conductor of heat.
Benefits of a double glazing window system
There are many advantages of installing a double glazing window system for your home and your family as well.
As we’ve said above, glass is a conductor of heat which means it can do an excellent job of keeping heat out in the wrong time of year and letting it in when you don’t need it. So with double glazing, you’re keeping your home at the right temperature all year round.
If you’re like most people, then you’ll know that noise interferes with sleep. Which means you’ll suffer consequences such as headaches, irritability, stress and on-going fatigue. If you find yourself suffering due to noise entering your home, then our window system will help to create a healthier environment inside your home. Double glazing windows create an incredible form of soundproofing that reduces noise levels by 50 to 70%.
Improved energy efficiency
Want to reduce your energy bills and save money? If so then double glazing windows create an energy-efficient house because you won’t need to use as much electricity with heating in the winter and cooling in the summer. The fantastic double insulation that double glazed windows create means your home stays at a comfortable temperature all year round.
At Stop Noise we’re sure you want the best safety and security for your home and your family too. If so then double glazing your windows will help to do this. A double glazing window system makes windows incredibly challenging to smash, break and forcibly open. This difficulty is both from the inside and the outside of the glass. Which means less cracking and splitting from inside your home and deterring people who may try to break the glass from the outside if they are attempting a break-in. Which means increased safety inside and outside your house.
Safeguard your furnishings
Did you know that intense heat inside your home can damage the furnishings? Such as deterioration of furniture, curtains and other materials inside a home. Control extreme heat from doing this and protect your furniture and furnishings for longer.
Increase the value of your home
Having these windows in your home increases the value of your property because of the above benefits. Having a home that is going to maintain a comfortable temperature, have reduced sounds coming in, and higher safety will increase the selling features of your home.
How much does it cost to double glaze existing windows?
Many people ask this question, and the simple answer is that it depends on a few factors so that the cost will vary.
If you’re looking at a full replacement which includes the complete removal of your current windows and the glass pane, then this can vary from $ 800 per square metre up to $ 1,500 per square metre fully installed.
If you’re looking at secondary glazing which gets added to your existing window, then this can be between $500 per square metre up to $600 per square metre which makes it a far more cost-effective alternative to a full replacement. A secondary double glazing system added to the current windows is the best alternative if you’re looking for the most cost-effective solution to your loud noise, insulation or safety problems within your property.
