Secondary Glazing Delivers Clear Benefits
With winter weather on the way for most of the UK many homeowners are considering measures that reduce their energy bills and make their homes more environmentally friendly. Secondary glazing systems remain a cost effective alternative for many households with the Ecoease magnetically attached panels, for instance, costing around 15% of a typical double glazing installation without any disruption caused by installation or any detrimental impact on environmental performance. As well as lower energy bills, Ecoease secondary glazing can all but eliminate issues such as condensation and sound pollution and can be easily installed in minutes by attaching the supplied magnetic strip around the inside of the window frame and affixing the panel. It’s also a perfect fit for listed and period properties where double glazing is often not an option due to conservation regulations. Constructed from clear PET (Polyester), the same material used for many aircraft windows and soft drink bottles, Ecoease panels are the most fire retardant plastic secondary glazing available in the UK. Paul Lemon from Guildford in Surrey is a recent convert to Ecoease having purchased DIY glazing panels: "We have a large expanse of window area in our holiday home. At night in the winter we could feel the cold so we considered secondary glazing, found Ecoease on the web and got in touch. “I fitted it myself. All I needed was a small hack saw and, since fitting, we have noticed a big difference in the room temperature, the amount of heating required and the level of comfort within the room. I would recommend it to anybody,” added Paul. Southampton-based Julian Worskett is similarly enthused: “We opted for secondary glazing in order to reduce fuel bills and keep our 16th Century house warmer without replacing the windows “The house is draft free and it certainly improves sound insulation. We fully expect to see lower fuel bills later this year,” added Julian. Ecoease secondary glazing is available in DIY and M2F (Measured 2 Fit) versions through www.ecoease.co.uk and a number of reseller websites, such as www.thegreenage.co.uk and www.nigelsecostore.co.uk, or by calling 01536 446398.
