What is Retro-Fit Double Glazing?
Retrofit NZ Energy Save Double Glazing is a replacement glazing system using your original window frames. We work with your new or existing timber window frames maintaining the original appearance and providing you the benefits of new Double Glazing.
Benefits of Double Glazing
Double Glazing is one of the best and easiest ways to maximize your wall insulation and double glazing reduces heat loss through your windows.
• Better Insulation means a warmer and drier home in winter.
• Cooler in summer.
• Reduces heating and cooling costs.
• You still maintain the look and character of your home.
The Retrofit NZ Energy Save system is specifically designed to maintain the appearance of your house by using your existing timber window frame. The Double Glazed units are factory made with two panes of glass separated by a sealed airspace. The sealed airspace provides insulation. Chris Smith Glass uses the latest Double Glazing manufacturing technology from Metro Glass. There are many glass options available which can increase insulation, reduce noise along with the option of Argon gas and low E glass.
