Windows are essential to letting light into your home, however they also allow a lot of heat to escape, andtriple pane window installation could be the answer to this problem. Most homes have double glazed windows; however triple glazing is becoming a little more popular every year.

We are told that triple glazing has a number of rewards over double pane windows, however is this really the case? Triple pane windows are made-up to reduce noise and also get better insulation.

Triple or double pane windows

In the past, all windows were made of a single pane. This glass was normally very thin and had minimal thermal insulation. Then double glazing created the idea of ​​using 2 pieces of gas with an inert gas in between. This structure will prevent heat from escaping from your room by providing better insulation. Triple glazed windows will make your home much more energy efficient. Double pane windows are quite inexpensive and offer many benefits over the single pane variety. Triple panel varieties are more expensive, but do they really offer enough benefits to offset the higher costs?

Choice of triple pane windows

Triple pane windows are very effective, but they are much heavier and also much more expensive than a conventional double-glazed unit. The technology behind triple-glazed glass units is still fairly new, this combined with the fact that they are not very common means that the prices are more expensive than you might expect.

Climate

Triple glazing is extremely efficient in insulating your home. Whether or not you want to use triple pane windows will mainly depend on your climate. If you have a very cold winter, you will have to consider triple glazing as an alternative.

UV coatings

There are also a number of different triple pane glass windows that have a special UV coating that will prevent so much sunlight from radiating into your home. UV coatings can be applied to double and triple glazed windows. UV coatings will provide a lot of insulation to your home. This UV coating will prevent heat from entering your home. You may want to consider using UV coated double pane windows instead of triple pane windows as they offer the same benefits at a lower cost.
