Many houses in the UK are struggling to pay their energy bills. Energy Prices have increased in the average two to the three-bedroom house from £1138 per year to £2500 per year, just in the past 12 months according to National Energy Action 

Energy crises around the UK have left people without any choice and to find ways where they can save extra money during this tough time.

Since energy bills have increased by up to 70%, there is no better time than now to look for ways to enhance your Windows performance which can save you money on your heating bills and reduce your bills.

Single-glazed windows are inefficient as they lose all of their heat through the windows which can lead to higher bills. This can contribute to a rise in energy prices and household bills.

If you upgrade your windows to be energy efficient this will provide a massive help in saving cost on bills. If you are seeking a long-term investment, it is very important to factor in the negative effect the old window will have on your home. Upgrading your old windows to secondary glazing will have a massive help.

What is Secondary Glazing?

First of all, let’s talk about what secondary glazing is.

Secondary glazing involves adding an extra layer inside of an existing window, creating a gap of air between the two glass layers. This air gap works as a barrier to reduce heat transfer, keeping the indoor space warm during cold weather and cool during hot weather. This enhances the thermal performance, provides noise reduction and better home security.

Secondary Glazing is a great way to upgrade your window without opting for any expensive options such as double or triple glazing. Secondary Glazing can enhance your window Thermal performance, reduce heat loss and noise reduction and provide home security.
