Heating a House

Googling a couple of home-building type sites says to expect to pay $800-$1200 per sqm for double glazing. Our old house in WA had 55 sqms of glass!!! Most of the whole back of the house was glass, would have cost me $50k-$60k!!!

Compared to how much for standard windows? When we had our house built the uplift to DG was negligible over the whole cost of the build and that was when DG was rare here.

It would have cost much more for wooden floors than DG, we went for standard tiles as much easier to upgrade that later and the house was to be rented to start with.  Now we are in we have wooden floors in main living space.

The only way I would have huge, glass floor to ceiling windows is if there was a lovely view - otherwise no.  Too hot unless there is a verandah for shade and too cold in winter unless double glazed.
