Enjoy a warmer home with Ecoease secondary glazing
By introducing thermal insulation onto your windows, you can minimise heat loss.
Single glazing (or ineffective, old double-glazing) in our homes often results in rooms which are difficult and expensive to heat. In fact, a large proportion of the heat generated literally goes straight out of the window. The first thought when looking to reduce heat loss is often to look into buying double glazing. However, whilst this is an efficient solution in many cases, it can be very expensive. Above all it can be a messy process and the finished look is not always in keeping with your property.
As a consequence owners of character homes or listed properties often do not want the appearance of double-glazed windows. In addition, they often cannot get local authority permission for them.
Ecoease uses set double glazing principles along with our unique magnetic sealing system. As a result this helps you to achieve good value thermal insulation for your existing windows. Our Secondary Glazing System provides a discreet second skin. Therefore allowing you to keep the character and beauty of your windows.
The graph seen here shows how effective secondary glazing can be at helping to keep heat loss to a minimum. Generally Secondary glazing actually outperforms standard double glazing.
Have you already fully insulated your home but still have cold rooms and condensation?
Research has shown that up to 48% of heat can be lost through the windows in a fully insulated home. Ecoease® has a calculated U value of 2.7 when using a 20mm gap between it and the existing single glazing. Thus you can benefit straight away from cost and energy savings, as well as warmer rooms.
The thermal insulation benefits of secondary glazing are widely known:
- You can greatly reduce heat transfer, creating warmer rooms
- Resulting in healthy savings on your heating costs
- You can reduce ‘Cold spots’ leading to more comfortable living spaces
- Ecoease can get rid of Condensation problems. This helps you to save time on morning mop-ups and prevent the growth of unhealthy mould and mildew on your window frames and curtains.
How does Ecoease work?
The Ecoease glazing system creates and maintains a sealed layer of static air between it and your existing window. The neatly edged, clear PET panels are fitted to the inside frame of your existing windows. These panels are held in place using our magnetic system.
As a consequence, this trapped airspace reduces the rate of heat loss. It also acts as a baffle to reduce sound transmission.
Nicky Harris said:“Just to let you know the panels arrived today and are a perfect fit. The installation and use of Ecoease panels was so efficient that we were able to save over a hundred pounds on our winter quarter heating bills. This saving went towards the purchase of the next set of panels. Ecoease really is a wonderful product and very easy to fit, I had wondered if the new owners of Ecoease would be as good to deal with. I can safely say you are. Thank you for your excellent customer service and prompt delivery. It is unlikely we will need any more panels as every available window is now done, but I will not hesitate to recommend both you and the product.”
Lastly, Ecoease, like any form of secondary glazing, will only work if you draught-proof your windows first. The purpose of the Ecoease glazing system is not to reduce draughts.
