Plan for the Future with Sound and Heat Isolating Glass Units
Glass prices in Thailand have reduced gradually over the last years to an affordable level where every customer should seriously consider to think about Double Glass Windows, also called Insulate Glass Units (IGU). The advantage over single glass is that IGU can be fitted with 2-3 Glass Panels and can reduce the incoming sound levels around 25-38db. The spacing of 10-15mm between the panels can be filled with Argon Gas, which has a lower density than Air. The effect is less physical heat transmission from one panel to the other one, subsequently less heat radiating into your room. The outer panel of the IGU can feature a Low-E Coating to reduce incoming sunlight and UV-Radiation that can greatly affect the Life-Span of your Furniture.
With Top Notch IGU Laminate Low-E Argon Gas Solution you can shave of yearly around 30-40% of your Air-con Electricity Cost. Lets look at the Electricity Consumption in the Thai Kingdom.[hr]
This study by the Ministry of Energy Thailand, shows the Energy Consumption from 1997 to forecast 2017.
Another one by the U.S Energy Information Administration shows similar stats.
Thailand is largely importing energy from neighboring Asean countries, which makes it subject to volatile pricing as demand increases. For the every-day user this translates sooner than later into higher electricity cost.
