ANYTHING BUT STANDARD: DOUBLE GLAZING
8th November 2018
Sustainable living at Nostra Homes – sees double glazing included as standard across our double storey home design range.
Improve your indoor climate whilst reducing ongoing costs.
As well as connecting interior living spaces with the outdoors, windows are a practical element integral to allowing light and ventilation into your home. In an effort to provide more comfort and quality - Nostra Homes offers double glazing* as part of the base price of our Double Storey home design range. This premium standard inclusion, allows our home owners to benefit from a comfortable climate, through a more cost effective and secure solution.
Windows are complex and interesting elements in the fabric of a home, they can be a major source of unwanted heat gain in summer and significant heat loss in winter. Double glazed windows make your home more comfortable, assist in a 6-star energy rating, dramatically reduce your energy costs and help to create a brighter, cleaner and healthier environment.
Premium performance, added cost efficiency.
Double glazed windows are an ideal energy efficient choice with the added benefit of minimising noise. The sealed air gap between the two panes acts as an added layer of insulation. This added thermal resistance reduces the amount of heat escaping in winter and keeps your home at a more comfortable temperature all year round. Double glazing has the reverse effect in summer, preventing unwanted heat from coming into the home. This extra insulation lessens your reliance on artificial heaters and air conditioners and can ultimately reduce your energy costs. Windows can severely impact on the heating and cooling loads of a building. Up to 40% of a home’s heating energy can be lost and up to 87% of its heat gained through windows. Improving windows’ thermal performance reduces energy costs and greenhouse gas emissions.^
A focus on functionality, built for living.
At Nostra Homes we have always prided ourselves on offering a high level of inclusions as standard in our range of designs. Energy efficiency and double glazing are the quiet achievers that work in the background while you keep on living. You may not be able to see the difference, but you’ll feel it. We are building for the future, inclusions that are normally considered upgrades are included as standard in your home. This further improved quality on already superior structural components, ensures a home that will stand the test of time.
Nostra Homes believes in quality, in all aspects of our process and it starts with our inclusions - we build homes that we are proud to call home ourselves.
