Replacing your inefficient windows is one of the best home improvements you can make to reduce your energy bills and cut carbon emissions.
Most homeowners will look towards double glazing when replacing their old windows, but listed buildings and properties in Conservation Areas often won’t be granted permission.
This is where secondary glazing comes in, as it doesn’t change the external look of the property and instead a second pane is fitted on the inside of the first, with an air gap to heighten energy efficiency.
Of course, this isn’t as efficient as a double glazed unit but still stands to save homeowners plenty of money every year on their energy bills.
Secondary glazing has become much more popular in recent years, as it shares a lot of the same qualities as double glazing, but comes at a cheaper cost.
Benefits of secondary glazed windows
With secondary glazing in your home to replace single paned windows:
Reduce your heating bills
The two panes of glass will work together to lock heat in your home, ensuring you needn’t turn up the temperature to keep warm.
Add to your home’s security
As you would expect it’ll be tougher to break into a secondary glazed property, so you’ll have peace of mind and less worries of an insecure home.
Cut noise pollution that enters your home
In the same way heat is retained in your home, noise pollution is kept out. This is particularly beneficial if you live near a busy main road or traffic works.
Slash your home’s carbon footprint
The effectiveness of secondary glazing will be directly affected by the gap between the two panes of glass, normally recommended at 100mm. Sound insulation will also improve with the glass’ thickness.

Waste of my time - Measured up and heard no more
By - Barry G.
SAFESTYLE UK LTD
Salesman visited on time. Gave their best price, only for Double Glazing doors. They do not do the Triple Glazing. I want Triple Glazing French Doors, hence I had to decline their offer - bit expensive I thought.
G2S GROUP LTD
I found them the best service and product provider for what I wanted. Though the original price was was very high, but being an existing customer, I had to negotiate much more. I like their product for the Triple Glazing doors. Besides, they are our local Swindon company, so in future, if I have any problem, I can then call them quickly to sort out the problem. The Sales lady, Tracy, and the General Manager, Alex, were very courteous and polite, and never put me under any pressure to buy like other Salesmen do. Well done G2S for respecting customers, specially the old-age pensioners like me. I am now waiting for the Surveyor to do his job and then the fitting date will be decided later.
