Why Choose To Add Secondary Glazing To Your Home

If you live in a listed property, or you find that double glazing it outside your budget, you may want to consider secondary glazing.

And while most people think it looks cheap and it’s not as good as double glazing, in this blog we aim to show you the reasons why secondary glazing might not be as bad as people think and why it could prove to be a solid investment.

Energy Efficiency

Once you install secondary glazing over your single glazed windows, you will instantly notice the benefits.

Especially through heat retention. Before, where hot air could escape through draughts and come straight into contact with cold air (due to only have one single window pane) heat could escape easier and there was an increased loss of energy in the home.

Once you install secondary glazing, you will see that heat will be increased throughout the home and retained much easier. You will even see your energy bills reduce on a monthly basis because you’ll find you’re not heating the house as often as you would’ve done previously.

All in all, energy efficiency will be increased quite substantially and you will notice the difference.

Noise Reduction

As with your heating constantly being on, you’re probably aware that there is no soundproofing through single glazed windows and that you can hear everything and anything.

This might not be too bad during the day, but at night when you’re wanting to sleep and you hear a lot of street noise or cars, it can prove to be frustrating.

Secondary glazing eliminates all of this, as the added window panel creates an extra barrier to prevent unwanted noise to get through.

Once you’ve installed secondary glazing you may even have the best nights’ sleep you’ve had in a long time.

Improved Security

If you’ve ever felt the glass of your single glazed windows, you can probably tell they’re quite flimsy and appear to be easily breakable.

You may even wonder how long they’ll last between weather conditions and accidents.

That’s why secondary glazing increases security to keep any unwanted intruders out and to make sure that you and your family are safe and secure in your home.

As well as some being encased in aluminium, these can easily deter burglars efforts, much more so than single glazed windows could.
