What is Triple Glazing Windows?

by Imagine Home Improvement Home Improvement

Triple glazing is the most recent advancement in window insulation, but what distinguishes it from double and secondary glazing, and is it worth the investment? Here we answer all of your questions about triple glazing and more. Triple glazing is a window with three panes of glass separated by argon gas, providing an additional layer of glass to insulate your home over double glazing. 

This additional layer makes it more difficult for heat to escape, allowing you to easily maintain your home's temperature. The air gaps in triple glazing are too small to allow air to circulate, preventing heat transfer through convection in the window. Because argon gas is a poor conductor, it slows heat loss through the window. The argon gas in the space between the glass panes can improve thermal performance by preventing heat from escaping, thereby eliminating energy waste. 

When comparing double and triple glazing windows, doors, and conservatories, there are some legitimate advantages and disadvantages to consider. Because triple glazing has an extra pane of glass, each triple glazed sealed unit is thicker and heavier than double glazing, putting more strain on window hinges over time. So, in addition to the extra glass costing at least 50% more, each window and/or door costs more to transport because it is much heavier.

Benefits of Triple Glazing:

  • Improved noise reduction

  • Because of improved thermal insulation, your home will be warmer.

  • Energy-efficient windows can help you reduce your home's carbon footprint.

  • This will reduce the amount of condensation that forms on the windows.

  • Stronger glass panes for increased home security

  • Will increase the value of your home

Triple glazing not only keeps your home warmer in the winter, but it also saves you money on energy bills by preventing heat loss. You will notice a significant difference in your bills as well as the overall comfort of your home after installing triple glazing, especially during the winter months. This eliminates the need to reach for the thermostat. Indeed, triple glazing is five times more efficient than single glazing – imagine how much of a difference that could make in your home. 

Install triple glazing and you won't need to turn the thermostat up as much as you used to, resulting in significant long-term savings. It's not an exact science, but a single-pane window typically has a U-value of around 5, and double glazing used to have a U-value of around 3, though technological advances have reduced that number even further.

In addition to lower energy and bill costs and a warmer home, you will notice a quieter home due to the increased barrier to the outside – implying a more peaceful home.
