How Thermal Glass Coat works.
It’s a liquid coating which is applied to your existing glass. This coating is very new technology that transforms your windows into thermal insulation barriers, blocking Infrared Radiation keeping heat inside in winter and outside in summer. It is a liquid “painted” onto your windows which dries to leave you with a clear view.
Comparing Thermal Glass Coat as a retrofit Double Glazing alternative is easy, but Window Insulation Film is tricky because there is a massive variance in quality, performance and cost. You can get high quality Window film with comparable performance, but it does cost a lot more.
In Clarke’s beach, a couple were quoted $9,000 for 2 very large, high windows in their lounge to be Double Glazed. We did their whole house for $6,000. High performance Window Film would have cost around $11,000. The job took 2 days. After the 1st day, in the lounge we’d only done the 2 large, high windows. The next morning, the client said “that stuff is amazing, I turned the heat pump down 3 degrees last night, and you haven’t even coated the other windows in the lounge yet”.
In Mt Wellington, a Father of a local Church got 3 Double Glazing quotes for the Church’s home. The lowest was $19,000. We did it for $4,000. High performance Window Film would have cost around $7,000. He reported … “I do not use any heating during the day as it is no longer necessary.”
Thermal Glass Coat is priced at a fraction of the cost of installing retrofit double glazing; it is quick and quiet to apply; and it is guaranteed for 10yrs. It is the perfect double glazing alternative for window insulation and UV protection.
There maybe access equipment costs to be added as well.
It’s messy, stressful and disruptive to home owners.
Glass is incredibly heavy. Adding a second pane to many window frames is fraught with unforeseen problems. Damage, leaks, warping and bending. This is glossed over my many retrofit double glazing installers because it doesn’t become an issue until 2 or 3 years after the install.
The applicators have to leave visable join lines on large windows.
Film is known to crack, peel and bubble.
It’s known to have durability issues in hot environments and can even break windows.
We work on the inside, so usually, no access equipment is required (unless you have really high windows inside).
Minimal disruption and mess.
We use your existing glass, so there is no extra weight to cause damage and leaks to your window frames.
Glass remains clear to see through.
Doesn’t crack, bubble, peel or leave join lines.
Can even be used on curved windows.
THERMAL Glass Coat is very durable and is highly scratch resistance, it is nearly as hard as glass.
Glass has a pencil hardness of 7h.
Films have a pencil hardness of about 3.5h.
THERMAL Glass Coat has a pencil hardness of about 5.5h.
THERMAL Glass Coat is guaranteed for 10 years against cracking, bubbling, peeling, and delaminating.
These seriously cold nights and mornings are a reminder to us all that winter has indeed arrived.
Because I am very aware of the amount of heat that escapes through windows I did some research on the many options available to reduce this heat loss and save on power consumption while staying comfortable indoors. As a result I have obtained details of the Thermal Glass Coat, coating system that is simple to apply yet effective in reducing heat loss.
Many thanks for your team’s great work. It was efficiently done with minimal disruption apart from moving a bit of furniture around. We have noted an immediate drop in temperature during the day to our north facing front bedroom that gets full sun. It use to feel like a furnace on entering it during the day & it is so much more pleasant to enter during the night to go bed. The house overall is very stable in temperature and even with cooler autumn temperatures overnight the house temperature does not drop overnight.
Our apartment has a lot of glass facing North and when it is closed up all day while we are working we come home to an apartment that is absolutely stifling. Having Thermal Glass Coat applied has made a huge difference, we no longer dread coming home and opening the door. We are really looking forward to seeing the difference in winter now.
We have a renovated villa in Onehunga. The kids bedrooms face south and have quite big windows so the rooms are very cold in winter so we use oil column heaters to keep them warm.
After having the coating applied we had to go and buy smaller heaters because we could not turn the heater down far enough to keep the rooms at the temperature we wanted. A good problem we thought but didn’t really expect that sort of result so we are very happy.
As soon as came home from work, I noticed the difference. My home (in Hastings) felt warmer when I came home from work and was warmer in the morning as well. I first got it in the summer and it really helped to keep my house cooler, but now I’m finding great benefits in the winter too. I need the heating on less than last winter, even though it’s been colder in Hawkes Bay. The best part is it not being so cold in the mornings there being hardly any condensation on the windows. I definitely recommend Thermal Glass as a Double Glazing Alternative for window insulation.
