It may seem a bit early to be thinking about replacing your draughty old timber joinery, but it is actually a really good idea to get this done before winter rolls around again! As the team at Eco Windows explain, old timber tends to warp and rattle in the frame, letting warm air out. Aluminium windows conduct heat so are a big heat sink also.
With the timely push for the building of more eco-friendly houses, the time is up on Kiwis accepting damp, draughty and unhealthy houses, and start building warm, dry, modern homes. Eco Windows are leading the charge for better housing in New Zealand. As they put it, “We want to shake up the building industry, change Kiwi expectations, and set a whole new standard for housing in New Zealand”.
Their beautiful windows, doors, and ventilation systems are designed to do just that, as they want Kiwis to stay warm and healthy. This is why they are not only selling some great products, but more than that, they want to contribute some of their background to a movement that just had started to arise. uPVC has the best thermal performance of any joinery on the market and seals 100%, with double glazing.
Eco Windows is a pioneer in the field of Passive Houses. In 2011 they manufactured the first certified Passive House windows right here in Aotearoa and in 2012 the first ever Passive House in New Zealand and Australia was built with their double-glazed, high-performance windows. This first NZ Passive House project was completed with a controlled ventilation system, that helps to keep the house dry, warm and comfortable all year round. The result is a beautiful and sustainable home with dramatically reduced power bills for years to come.
Eco Windows has a vast variety of German windows available, which are all suitable for the high standards and requirements of Passive Houses, and next to sustainable materials, such as wood and aluminium, they offer a wide range of high-performing uPVC windows, and for more information on Wellington windows and doors, double glazing and please go to https://ecowindows.nz .
