Double glazed windows
The staff were fantastic! Clear communcation was used throughout the process including the wait time. They liased well with the family and when the product was in the store room, it took 2 staff members and 1 day to install the mammoth window that we needed to replace. They even came out to our property to adjust the windows the day before Christmas Eve. The windows have truly made a difference in our heating and cooling and everyone in the house is thoroughly happy with them.

Placed our order on 26 October. Still waiting. Communication from the company is not great - we have now made monthly calls for the last 3 months. I hope they are everything they promised.
Good looking product that works well
Ecostar were professional when they came out. Tradesmen were really nice. Easy to deal with.
We had two quotes. One from Nu-Eco and one from Ecostar. Chose Ecostar.
We had old hardwood windows. They had bowed. Sitting at night with the windows shut you would see the curtains blowing. Missus was cold at night in the bedroom.
Now there is no drafts and its fine. Definately keeps the cold out. Curtains don't move any more. Works with the heat. We ordered 8 windows and changed a swing door to sliding door.
Installers were fine. Installed Feb 17 ,2017.
Every house should have it if they can afford it.
We ordered 7 windows and a sliding door in 2016.
We wanted to improve thermal insulation and reduce noise. It certainly improved the noise a lot. We love the windows.
HUGE improvement regarding temperature. Warmer in winter and cooler in summer. Definitely helps. 75-80% improvement from a thermal perspective. Huge improvement. We felt it the moment it was installed.
The installers were excellent. Very good at what they were doing. The Ecostar office is easy to deal with and no drama at all.
Every house should have it.
We ordered 8 windows from Jared in June 2019. We had rotting timber and were interested in sound improvement and heat control. We saw Ecostar on the internet and heard them advertised on the radio.
We had looked at double glazing in the past and had been thinking about it, but it was Ecostar's deal that got us to put it in.
Thermally it has made it 6-8 degrees better in the top room without any heating or cooling and the same down in the lounge. Previously our top room would be 32 degrees on a hot day, now the top it gets to is 26 degree w...ith no cooling at all. There is now zero noise. It has killed the noise. Our son now sleeps another 30 minutes every morning as the birds used to wake him up. No need to paint them which is nice. No maintenance which is great.
Ease, carefree and modern
I ordered 3 windows and 2 sliding doors in August 2012. I wanted a durable product, thermal ventilation and noise reduction. I live right on the street.
It has been absolutely durable. Maintenance free. The windows are really good. Feels a lot lighter in here. I can just open and close them with ease. Haven't had to do anything.
Thermal ventilation has been great. Definitely noticed a difference.
Noise reduction has been good. It is a lot quieter. Hear less neighbors, don't really hear the cars. This was a big change. Used to hear neighbors when they had their parties. Not anymore.
The installers were really good. Efficient. Quick.
Today I'm looking at back door, window and front door.
Has modernized my house
I ordered all the windows in the kitchen. Four all up. It was about 2016.
My old windows were rotted. From a house built in the 1960s.
I am very happy with Ecostar. I drove past and had a look at some of Ecostars installations locally in Dingley and I was happy with what I saw.
The temperature improvement since putting Ecostar's windows in has been great. The room used to be like a hot house in summer and it isn't any more. It keeps the warmth in in winter and keeps the heat out in summer. I don't have any blinds on the windows and don't need any.
The noise reduction has been good.
The Look is Great
We ordered 4 windows from Ecostar in early 2019.
The installers did a good job and cleaned up. We did the front ones as we live on a busy road. Very noisy. The noise has reduced a lot. Before you could hear a lot of noise. Now it is quieter.
We feel great regarding the safety. You can't open from the outside. Very safe.
The look is great. Everybody notices. It looks bigger now.
It is cooler in summer. Before you couldn't stay in the front room on a 39 degree like today and now with our windows we can.
I would give it 8 out of five if I could.
Sleek construction and well engineered
The Ecostar windows and doors are outstanding quality. Double glazing makes a lot of sense. Ecostar know their product very well.
My motiavtion for looking at double glazing is for thermal insulation.
I love them because they look bright and fresh
Our ecostar journey started with our son. We saw a presentation at our son and his wife's house that was conducted by Jared. We were impressed that Ecostar changed their windows to make it suitable for Australian conditions to last a long time. We like the security of how you can kick the window.
We were impressed.
I was amazed when we saw our son's windows. Their installation was quick, efficient and they cleaned up beautifully.
Then we ordered four windows. Two lounge, kitchen and main bedroom. We wanted to get rid of condensation and to try to keep it warmer.
From the inside I love the look of them. ...There is now NO condensation, it really does help with keeping it warmer in winter and cooler in summer. Our installation was quick and they cleaned up nicely. 3 of them. Nice guys. I like the fact there is no condensation. I like the frames that aren't rotting windows. I like the brightness. I used to have the curtains drawn but now I have no curtains and it is beautiful. It just works for us. There is one negative side. It makes me want to change the rest of the house to fit in with the windows!
We are extremely happy with the windows. During the scorching days over December and January the kitchen/family room has been kept at a very comfortable temperature without the use of air-conditioning.
They are everything you said that they would be. We give you five stars for excellence.
Security- Completely sealed- No stress now
The family room was very cold. I reakon there used to be gaps. I would feel very cold in there. When there was heavy rain water would previously come into the family room on one side. The carpet would end up getting wet. I was stressed about the room flooding.
Now I don't stress as there are no leaks whatsoever. I just sit there and relax.
I ordered 3 windows and one sliding door from Jared in 2018.
The Installer were very good. There was four installers. One of them was from England. They even fixed a crack in the wall while they were her...e and they did it for me. It was great! The hole in the wall was annoying me. I'm glad its fixed. They did it as a favour. There has been noise reduction. It is a lot quieter. I don't have to have the TV up as loud any more.
We are thrilled with the final result
We ordered 5 ecostar windows in May 2019 and they were put in in September.
The installers were here for two days.
The installation was very good. Two installers.
Love how wide you can open them. Air flow is great.
Appreciate that we could put our plantation shutters back on.
Really happy overall
I have been completely happy with the service I have received on both occasions. The two reps that have been have been very helpful & informative.
The installation of my first lot of windows were done quickly & efficiently by a great team of men.
I am now waiting for the last of my windows to be installed.
Makes the house Pop
We ordered double glazed windows for our house. 8 windows ordered from Jared.
We wanted to improve the look of the house, improve insulation and reduce noise from a neighbor's dog.
The look is great. I couldn't have asked for any better. The windows make the house pop.
The installers were great. Nice chaps with great customer service skills. They were here two days. They were very clean and cleaned up. You wouldn't know they had been there. I think there were two Shane's on the installation team.
Noise wise it is perfect. I can't speak highly enough of the windows highly enough really. It has completely eliminated the noise.
Upgraded the house! I just stand and look at the windows some times.
We saw Ecostar at the homeshow in August 2019.
We ordered almost every window in two houses from Jared in August 2019. They were installed 17-18th of December.
We love them. We love the look of them. You would have to be pretty hard to please if you didn't like them.
It has dulled the noise. No two ways about it it has definitely helped with the noise. Our daughter and her partner has told us they really like it in their home. Definitely improves things.
Absolutely awesome installers. They were fantastic. Fantastic. Hard workers. Ollie was from Norwich, I think Steve was another one.
I feel rich and famous now looking at the windows. Definitely feel like we have gone upper class. ...When speaking with the office it has been fine. Fantastic. No complaints at all. Everyone who has come around has absolutely loved it. The one thing is the price. But you get what you pay for and sometimes you have to pay for quality.
New House Without Moving
My Ecostar windows were installed in July 2019. I wanted double glazing because those windows are west facing and I wanted to improve thermal insulation. Keeping it cool in summer was the main reason.
Now we haven't had to use the air con as much and there has been a reduction in the noise from the road.
The three installers, under the leadership of Ollie, were excellent. Punctual, great at their job and extremely polite. Very modern look.
Overall, I am extremely happy and am now ordering another three windows and a door.
I'm just happy with the appearance of the windows. Very happy!
I wanted to put double glazing in to keep it warm in winter and cool in summer and to be quiet.
I ordered two windows upstairs with Ecostar a few years ago.
It is effective. I don't have to use the heater where the windows are any more.
The installers were good. Very efficient. They were only here half a day.
Dealings with the office has been good. The windows took a while to arrive. They were put in just before Christmas.
Updated and improved the house.
We ordered in April 2018 and they were installed around September. We ordered 19 windows and doors.
The windows are excellent from a thermal perspective. In summer and winter.
The installation team was excellent. John, Nathan and a youngish guy from New Zealand. First rate.
Nathan did our survey who did a good job.
It has cut down on noise. Traffic noise is not as pronounced. It doesn't cut out everything, but reduces it. We get a lot of people stopping and looking now. It adds a quality finish to the house. Adds value to the house. It stands out.
Windows are now the best part of the house!
For us getting Ecostar windows in our home was an accident! We stumbled across it. We saw Ecostar at Farmworld in Lardner Park in Warragul.
We wanted to replace our old aluminum windows. I hated the aluminum windows. The panes were coming out of the frames. They were unsafe and 40/45 years old.
We had a quote from Ecostar and we ordered four windows. At the quote we learnt about the uPVC product and the metal inside it. We were a bit shocked at the price, but we liked the no maintenance and the warranty.
Before in winter we were all rugge...d up with jumpers, tracksuits like we were living outside. Now we just wear t Shirts. It certainly works. Much better now. Now on a hot day I touch the outside of my Ecostar window and it is hot, but the inside pane is cool. The installers were really nice boys. They worked really well together. There was 3 or 4 of them. They loved my cooking when I made them a beef and mushroom stew for lunch.
Quality service Quality product
We first placed an order with Ecostar in 2015. We ordered the windows at the front which was 5 windows.
We wanted to double glaze because we were freezing. You could walk past the window and you could literally see your breathe. Being from Canada we wanted to be as warm and comfortable here as we are there. Unfortunately they don't build houses here for Melbourne weather. Our kids think it is colder in Melbourne than it is in Canada because you walk into a house in Melbourne and it is cold.
Previously our old windows would shake in the wind.... We like the look of the Ecostar windows. The effectiveness is good. The house is NOTICEABLY warmer than with our previous windows. Significantly warmer. We can't hear people drive into the driveway. Previously you would hear a pin drop.
We ordered two bays windows, a side window and another out the back. 8 windows in total. We saw Ecostar at the homeshow in 2018.
We wanted to improve thermal performance. We wanted to keep it warm in winter. We wanted to cut out the noise.
The house is MUCH cooler. It used to be very hot. Now it is much cooler where we have done the windows. The noise has reduced.
The installers were very professional and through. The windows were installed in two days.
Today we ordering another 7 items. A front door and 6 windows.
I had heard Ecostar on the Radio but connected with them at the Homeshow as I was looking at putting Double Glazed Windows in my home.
I ordered 7 windows and 2 doors from Ecostar. I chose Ecostar because of the quality of them.
They were installed in August 2019.
Over winter it was a good improvement keeping the heat in.
The installers were here for two days.
Clean and tidy. They cleaned up their mess.
We ordered the windows upstairs and downstairs on the front of the house. We wanted something good and to keep the sun out in summer and the warmth in during winter.
It certainly retains the heat in winter.
We don't need air conditioning in summer anymore. It was 44 degrees the other day and we don't need any air conditioning.
Noise has reduced.
The old windows would rattle in the wind. Stegbar. Now no rattling. Absolutely none. No noise whatsoever.
The look of our Ecostar windows are very nice. They look very European.
We feel like the windows are very secure. Can't compare with what we had before. It was terrible. When we originally built double glazing wasn't in at all and the windows we had were hopeless....
The windows are excellent. They are secure and easy to use. The old sliding door I had I could hardly even open it. I ordered windows in the two bedrooms, the living room, the kitchen and dining room and the toilet.
The installers did a great job. It was a big fella.
It keeps the cool in in Summer and works the other way in winter.
No complaints. Today I'm finishing off the rest of the house with Jared.
Got the service team Kiwi and the other Jared around now who are giving me my 12 month window clean. They have just come round to clean the windows.
