Your home is your own, but if your home is a grade A or Grade B listed building then there are some things that you are not permitted to do. You need to keep the building looking the same as it did all those years ago and this restricts you somewhat to the changes that you can make. The government rightly wants to maintain the culture and the look of these fantastic buildings, but there are some work rounds that you can do that won’t affect how the building looks but will certainly make it more efficient.
An example of this is using affordable secondary glazing services in Barnsley for your windows and doors to make them more efficient and to reduce your heating and cooling bills. It is a fairly simple procedure where they put an additional piece of glass between your 2 current panes and this means that heat stays in the house where it should. There are a number of other advantages to secondary glazing and we will look at just some of them here.
- The secondary glazing is really discreet and you wouldn’t notice that it has been done just by looking at the window. This means that you have not changed the overall look of the listed building and so the powers that be are fine with it.
- It also acts as a very good sound insulator and allows your home to be much quieter than before. Noise from cars and people stays outside where it should be.
Consider installing secondary glazing for your home today. It won’t affect the look of the building, but it will certainly save you money on heating bills.
