Studies have shown that environmentally inefficient windows are responsible for as much as 40 percent of a home’s heat loss in the winter months. This translates into a similar increase in home heating costs and energy usage. Things don’t get much better in summer, either, since the wrong windows are often responsible for the need to use air conditioning more than should be necessary. Allkind Joinery & Glass is a Brisbane company that knows everything there is to know about timber windows and doors. If there is one thing their customers have learned from this prestige joinery over its 40 year history, it is that you needn’t sacrifice style when you choose energy efficient timber windows.

All windows are basically made up of just two components: a frame and glass. As was outlined in an earlier blog, Choosing Windows for Brisbane Winters, timber is the ideal window frame material to use for insulation against heat and cold and double glazed glass nearly doubles a window’s energy efficiency. This makes timber windows from Allkind Joinery Brisbane a perfect starting point for your energy efficient home renovation.

Types of Timber Windows

The next step is to choose the right timber windows for the right application. At Allkind Joinery, you have a range of energy efficient timber window styles to choose from:

  • Timber bifold windows may be perfect for a kitchen or sunroom. They open wide to allow fresh air in and close tightly for protection against the weather.timber louvre windows brisbane
  • Timber sliding windows are ideal when you want to allow plenty of air into the house, but want the windows to remain flush with the walls.
  • Double hung windows can be opened from the top or the bottom, making them perfect for providing room ventilation.
  • Timber hopper windows are ideal for drawing air into the room while at the same time preventing strong breezes from entering.
  • Timber louvre windows are perfect for areas where natural light can be too strong for other types of windows. They can be adjusted to allow as much or as little light in as you like.
  • Glass louvre windows are ideal for large areas where you want combine high visibility with precise ventilation control.

The best way to visualise how you can use these types of windows in your home is to first have a look at the timber windows gallery on the Allkind Joinery website.

This will help you determine which style of timber window will be most appropriate for different areas of your home.
