Staying warm is easy when you choose secondary glazing. With listed or heritage buildings, windows are often the weakest part of the building – as they let in cold draughts that can lead to problems like condensation.
Affixing secondary glazing to your single paned windows to lock the heat inside and make your home thermally efficient. Your installation will produce a lower U-value and could well drive down your energy costs.
Single-paned glazing is not effective at blocking out external noise. Secondary glazing provides a remedy to this problem. If you live near an intersection, or your home faces on to a road, it’s a particularly attractive solution.
Your secondary glazing is fully reversible. It can easily be removed if you want to access the inner mechanisms of your windows for cleaning purposes or ventilate your home on a particularly hot summer’s day.
If you live in a listed building, or your home is in a heritage site, you will probably want to install secondary glazing. High-rise flats often require secondary glazing too, because installing conventional units in buildings like these isn’t practical.
Because secondary glazing is fitted internally, it prevents the aesthetics of a listed or heritage building from being disrupted. You won’t need to worry about harming the visual appearance of your property when you choose this option.
Specific rules exist to protect listed buildings and those located within heritage sites. Although you can seek out like for like replacements, there’s no guarantee your application will be accepted – in which case you’ll need to start again.
Secondary glazing is internal and, therefore, hidden. It is also extremely easy to remove without damaging the installation it is appended to. For this reason, it is normally seen as a permissible development.
