Should People Still Be Living with Single Glazing?

With the clear benefits of installing secondary or double glazing, it may come as a surprise to many of us that people are still living with single glazing windows. Especially with the ever-growing cost of energy bills, it’s hard to believe that some people aren’t reaping the benefits of installing secondary glazing in their home.

If you’re still living with single glazing in your property, keep reading to discover just why you should consider making a change.

Poor security

For most of us, the security of our home is of utmost importance. Preventing break-ins, putting you at ease and keeping your family and property safe is the number one priority. But if you’re still using single glazing windows, you’re making it much easier for thieves to break in. A single pane of glass can easily shatter, providing a quick entry point for burglars.

One of the most irritating aspects of owning a roadside home is the noise pollution. Whether your home is close to a road, an airport or you’re just in a busy city, you’ll understand the frustration of not being able to block out the loud noise. That’s especially the case if you’re still getting by with single glazing. Having only one, thin pane of glass to prevent noise pollution just doesn’t cut it and you may find yourself dealing with a lot of outside noise coming into your home.
