Living in the Adelaide Hills can be hard, especially in winter. You walk out to your car in the morning and your windscreen is covered in ice. Pulling out your ATM card to scratch off the ice is part of your morning ritual.
No more winter blues
Energy bills are on the increase, no matter where you live. It’s an ongoing issue all of us are fighting, but there are options. Windows and doors greatly impact the heating and cooling in your home. Up to 40% of your home’s heating energy can be lost and up to 87% can be gained through windows.
All houses in Mount Barker are susceptible to cold weather and winds. It’s a big suburb with large open areas, such as near the Wetlands, Flaxley Road, Springs Road, Bald Hills Road, Paddys Hill Road, Hawthorn Road, and Old Mount Barker Road.
It’s not uncommon for homes in this region to have fireplaces, so traditional heating is common. Saying this, double glazing can still be beneficial for these homes to help retain the warmth for the entire next day. Many Mount Barker houses also have long, gravel driveways with no cover.
While Mount Barker is a country town, it’s growing, and fast. Homes on Hill Street, Hawthorn Road, Dumas Street, Morphett Street, Mann Street, Druids Avenue, Pridmore Terrace, and Cameron Road are close to the Princess Highway, Cornerstone College, Wallis Cinema, Keith Stevenson Park and Mount Barker High School – all local hubs. These homes could also reap the sound insulation benefits of double glazing.
Condensation is a big thing in the Adelaide Hills too. Your bathroom mirror fogs up and in many homes, condensation on windows and doors is an issue.
Condensation on your windows can cause a number of problems. The moisture can trickle down and damage the window frame, particularly with wood. High moisture levels also encourage mould. Double glazing helps to eliminate these issues through the two panes of glass.
Say goodbye to wintery worries and condensation in your home in Mount Barker. Double glazing is one of the best ways to reduce your energy bill, during winter and summer. It’s a cost-effective way to create a more sustainable home. Learn more about the financial advantages of double glazing.
