3 Reasons to Retrofit Secondary Glazing
Replacing windows in existing homes can be a hassle, especially for heritage or strata homes.
Existing homes can achieve thermal, acoustic and economic benefits of double glazing by retrofitting with a secondary glazing system.
3 Reasons to retrofit secondary glazing on your home improvement project
1. Maximise results
Secondary glazing solutions can be tailored to maximise soundproofing and energy efficiency. For noise reduction, the larger air gap associated with the secondary glazing system can deliver up to 70% noise reduction through your existing window. This will have you sleeping like a baby all year round.
2. Maintain aesthetic of your home exterior
For heritage/ period or strata homes, retrofitting with secondary glazing retains the existing windows and aesthetic character of the building exterior. This allows the heritage windows to be featured, accentuating the historic look and feel of your heritage home. For strata buildings, secondary glazing allows the owner to enhance acoustic and thermal insulation without any structural changes or changing the look of the building from the outside, a key concern of most strata managers.
3. Reduce costs without adding to landfill
Retrofitting with a secondary glazing system is a more affordable alternative than a full replacement. This also means that the existing windows are not taking up room in overflowing landfills. Reduced heating and cooling loads will also provide returns through energy savings and make your home thermally comfortable all year round. Save money and the environment by retrofitting your windows with secondary glazing solutions.
