Benefits to the resident
A glazed balcony allows extra space and more comfort. Glazing protects from outside elements: rain, impurities and flying trash. Noise decreases and the space is easier to furnish. Furthermore, balcony glazing increases the value of an apartment. Balcony glazing increases the property value higher than the investment you put in. When selling the apartment, this is a major factor.
Benefits to the building
Balcony glazing is a profitable purchase decision. Studies have shown that glazing protects the facade of the building and its structure. Painted surfaces stay clean and changes in the weather do not erode the facade, resulting in a much longer renewal timeframe. This has a significant impact on the pay-back time of balcony glazing as an investment.
Benefits to the Developer
Including modern Lumon 5 balcony glazings in the construction of apartment buildings raise the standard of new apartments and give a feeling of exclusivity to the families. The glossy façade with balcony glazings and the balconies with Lumon 5 perfect the apartments and make them more appealing to the buyers. Hence, these kind of homes are sold first.
Balcony glazing is eco-friendly
The impact of energy savings arising from balcony glazing has now been studied. According to this study, glazing results in the heating energy savings of 3.4%-10.7% in an 80 sqm apartment, the average value being 5.9%. This is of significance due to constantly increasing energy costs.
Glazing pays off
It is relatively inexpensive to provide the balcony with glazing. Studies show that the glazing's procurement price is paid back within some 15 years through its energy savings of about 6% alone, depending on the shape and location of the balcony. Additionally, he protection of balcony glazing to the structures decreases this pay-back time significantly, because the renovation need is postponed with some 10 years, tells the research result of Tampere University of Technology.
Very small carbon footprint caused by balcony glazing - in four years you have made an environmental action
According to a study made by Ramboll Oy, the total carbon dioxide load produced by the manufacture, transport, installation, maintenance and final recycling of balcony glass panes amounts to about 200 kg of carbon dioxide. The annual energy savings resulting from balcony glazing correspond to about 50 kg of carbon dioxide. Judging from this, it takes, on average, only four years to compensate for the glazing-induced carbon footprint through energy savings arising from balcony glazing.
