Double glazing is a wonderful invention, no doubt. With the introduction of a second pane of glass, insulation improves greatly. This means that with double glazing your home won’t lose as much heat in the winter, or get as hot in the summer. The second layer of glass acts to trap the sun’s rays and stop excess heat from entering your home in the warmer months. With double glazing, your home becomes more energy efficient, and you won’t have to spend as much on your heating bills.
However, double glazing can be pricey. It also comes with the added hassle of having to replace the entire window. For those with a listed property, changing the windows to that extent is just not an option.
Don’t want to invest in full double glazing? Can’t because of the status of your home? Don’t worry, secondary glazing is the perfect alternative.
At Cumbria Windoworks we’re equipped to fit secondary glazing to properties all over Carlisle and Cumbria. Unlike with standard double glazing, secondary glazing doesn’t require a new window.
Secondary double glazing works by fitting a second, slim window to the inside of your existing window. You’ll save hugely when compared to double glazing. This is because you don’t need to have an entire new unit fitted. So you’ll only pay for the additional sheet of glass.
Secondary glazing, because it’s not a full unit, is also much quicker to install. As well as this, you won’t have to spend any time without a window while your new one is fitted. You’ll get virtually the same insulation. So you’ll enjoy the benefits of lower heating bills, without the larger upfront cost of standard double glazing. Secondary glazing also stops noise pollution.
Even if your home is a listed building, the installation of secondary glazing is considered a ‘reversible change’. So it’s recommended by English Heritage and the Listed Property Owners Club.
Why carry on with single glazing? You can save in the long run with secondary double glazing. Get in touch with Cumbria Windoworks today to order yours. Or give us a call on 01228 904400 for a faster response.
