The Thermal Benefits of Secondary Glazing

Secondary glazing is a popular solution for enhancing the thermal efficiency of existing windows. By installing an additional pane of glass or acrylic inside the window unit, secondary glazing provides an extra layer of insulation. This setup helps to retain heat, eliminate cold spots, and reduce draughts, resulting in a more comfortable and energy-efficient home. At Fitter Windows, we will take you through some of the benefits of our secondary glazing. To learn more, read on.

Reduced Heat Transfer

Secondary glazing also helps to reduce the impact of external temperatures on the indoor environment by reducing heat transfer through the windows. In winter, it keeps the cold air out and the warm air in, creating a consistent and comfortable temperature inside the home. During summer, you will benefit from extra ventilation, helping give you better fresh air in your home.

Helps Eliminate Draught Spots

Another thermal benefit of secondary glazing is its ability to reduce draught spots. Draught spots are areas near windows where the temperature is significantly lower than the rest of the room. This can cause discomfort, condensation, and mould growth. By adding an extra layer of insulation, secondary glazing helps improve the temperature in your home, resulting in more comfort.

Secondary Glazing Is Soundproof

In addition to thermal efficiency, secondary glazing offers other advantages. It can reduce noise intrusion by up to 80%, creating a quieter and more peaceful living environment. Furthermore, it provides an extra layer of security, making it more challenging for intruders to break into the home through the windows.
