Within the home, dealing with the change in seasons usually involves dusting, washing, storage and hauling items out of cupboards every 6 months or so. Green homes are kept at an even temperature all year round, by means of insulation.
A window or glass door made of 2 separate plates of glass makes up a double-glazing system. An air cavity traps air between the glass layers – and these air cavities actually insulate the home, keeping us comfortable.
Double-glazing helps retain warm air during winter and cold air during summer – this helps save money in the long run.
Through a combination of insulation materials and techniques, a well-insulated home means that utility costs are reduced by more than half. Heating the home in winter and cooling it in summer won’t cost nearly as much.
