Why choose triple glazing over double glazing?
Triple glazed windows are around 40% more thermally efficient than today’s standard double-glazed windows, this helps to reduce your heating bills and carbon emissions so you can rest assured you are not only doing your bit to save the environment but you will save on the heating costs too. With triple glazing, homes are able to stay warmer for longer and you can expect fewer cold spots and drafts near windows.
Triple glazing can help reduce condensation on your windows.
Triple glazing offers a significant reduction in noise pollution – so it is ideal for those living in noisy areas.
Double glazing can create cold patches in the house, due to the higher u value of windows compared to walls and doors. This problem is exacerbated by modern insulation – as better and thicker wall insulation means windows become much colder compared to the rest of the house. Triple glazing is an excellent solution to this problem, as it reduces the difference in U-value between the windows and the rest of the building.
Benefits of Triple Glazed Windows
These windows, when properly installed, can offer the following benefits?
• Triple glazed windows are stronger and more rigid than regular windows
• Excellent resistance to condensation problems
• Helps reduce sound transmission
• Security enhancement, as the thicker area will be harder to break in if someone wants to do some property damage
• Offer great energy savings when compared to regular and double glazed windows
• Installing triple glazed windows is equivalent to upgrade walls and ceilings from R-20 to R-40 (in certain circumstances)
• Triple glazed windows can decrease relative heat loss
• Increases thermal comfort inside the building as they will protect and prevent heat loss
• A combination of double glazed windows and triple glazed windows can be used with the building orientation to obtain excellent results.
