What is the difference between Secondary Glazing and Double Glazing?

Secondary Glazing and Double Glazing are sometimes confused, but they are in fact different things. 

Secondary glazing retains your existing window and involves installing an additional pane of glass behind the existing window. In contrast, double glazing is one single window which comprises two panes of glass separated by argon or krypton gas which forms an insulating barrier.

Here at Prior Products, we supply both options as they can both be good options for improving the energy efficiency of your home and therefore reducing your heating costs. 

Double glazing can be more energy efficient, however it can be more expensive to install and if you own a listed building double glazing may not be approved.
