Tired of aging windows letting your home down?
What are uPVC double glazed windows?
Double glazed windows – which are referred to by some people as twin glazing or secondary glazing – are those that feature two panes of glass with a void in between. Ecostar uses a 20mm void filled with insulating Argon gas for superior thermal and sound reduction properties.
What are the uPVC window pros and cons?
Ecostar UPVC double glazed windows have many benefits, such as:
- Lower your energy bills
- Reduce your carbon footprint
- Reduce outside noise by up to 90%
- Withstand extreme weather conditions
- Don’t fade, crack or split
- Require no maintenance
Virtually maintenance free, our double glazed windows are manufactured to withstand Australia’s harsh climatic conditions without fading, cracking or splitting. No need to worry about painting or sealing!
uPVC window frames Melbourne
Unlike aluminium window and doorframes that expand and contract – conducting heat and cold into your home – our composite frames fit snuggly no matter what Melbourne’s weather is up to! uPVC limits heat transfer through the frame, and in colder areas it can also be filled with foam insulation to further improve the thermal properties.
Used in conjunction with double glazing, which prevents heat transfer through the glass, these windows improve the energy efficiency of your home – keeping it cooler in summer and warmer in winter. In addition, they also prevent the transfer of outside noise into the home, making them a popular choice as soundproof windows!
Double glazed windows improve your home’s security
All our uPVC double glazed windows and doors improve your home’s security. They carry the British police-preferred security specification: ‘Secured By Design’. And, when you choose to double glaze with Ecostar, we upgrade all new Ecostar double glazed windows with toughened safety glass on both panes, providing our customers with even greater safety and peace of mind.
Some perceive the cost of uPVC double glazed windows to be a drawback; the truth is, they are more expensive than traditional single pane windows. However, the improved energy efficiency and thereby reduced power bills – and the fact they don’t need any maintenance – does mean the cost of double glazed windows for Melbourne homeowners is well worth it and you recoup it over time.
If you’ve read uPVC windows reviews, you’ll be aware that not all products on the market are equal. Although our uPVC windows aren’t as cheap as some products on the market, they are made to stringent standards and are far superior in terms of longevity and appearance. You get what you pay for!

What our customers say
"To say we were totally pleased with our Ecostar windows and doors is an understatement. Instantly, the traffic noise was a thing of the past and the house was so quiet. Wonderful. And, despite energy costs having really increased over the last few years, our bills were around 40% lower than in the past. We sold our home for $1.2 million and, bearing in mind where we live, we would never have got anywhere near this price if we had not invested in Ecostar Double Glazing."
Alan and Jan Hume
"I could not be more delighted with such a positive result. We can hardly hear any traffic now, even at peak hours on the freeway. We are sleeping so much better too. In summer the house is noticeably cooler and we use hardly any air conditioning. We can look forward to winter for the first time since we moved in"
"We had our first five windows and a door replaced with Ecostar double glazing four years ago and loved the results so we saved up to get the rest of our house double glazed and we couldn't be happier. The windows look fantastic, they’re more secure, save us money on energy bills and we’re less bothered by outside noise. Ecostar's service was excellent and their installers did a fantastic job, even taking away the old windows as part of their service."
Peter and Jill Garbett
"From the very first meeting it was clear that Ecostar was very professional. We quickly reached the conclusion that Ecostar products were of very high quality. The windows are looking great and we are very happy. I have just completed the Customer Service Survey and I am pleased to say I gave Ecostar top marks for their sales presentation, their surveyor, the office team and their installers. We will defnitely recommend Ecostar to our family and friends."
"Our house now looks fantastic. People walk through the house and cannot believe how much warmer the house has become. The 90% noise reduction has blown me away."
