St Andrews House, Residential Application

Challenge

Anne Dutton (AD) and her family had recently built a holiday house on the coast of St Andrews, VIC. In keeping with the contemporary style of their house, they had installed floor to ceiling windows.

Solution

Australian Glass Group recommended Dutton’s Insulglass Clear providing them a greater glazing capacity with a noticeable difference in comfort and energy savings.

Australian Glass Group (AGG) also took the opportunity to interview Anne for an everyday perspective on how Insulglass Select had made a difference to her home – 

AGG – Your current home in St Kilda is not double glazed, so what made you choose double glazing in your holiday home?

AD – It was suggested to us that double glazing is the way to go and you think OK, it’s the way to go. It’s better for heating and keeping the place cool in summer but I really never realized how good it was going to be until I had it. So of course now with this house (in St Kilda) I am really frustrated and disappointed because I can feel the difference.

AGG – How does double glazing make the difference?

AD – I look at these windows (in St Kilda) and think what a waste; I wish I had double glazing. You put the heating on at the holiday house and you reach the temperature you want in 10 minutes and then it stays off because the house holds its heat…the temperature rarely alters.
