The hosts had to wait until mid-way through the second period to find an opening though, with Noah Clarke claiming first blood for the Giants.
The third period brought two more goals, courtesy of Matt Towe and Sam Roberts - and relief for the Belfast side.
A win was vital as they had suffered a 5-1 defeat at the hands of the Steelers in the sides' first clash of the weekend.
The victory keeps the Giants second in the Elite League, but just a point behind the Steelers with three games in hand and one point above the third-placed Nottingham Panthers.
