Triple glazed windows are the latest innovation in the glazing industry for exceptional thermal insulation and a preferred choice in building regulations for new build properties or certified passive house.
Determining whether triple glazed windows are a better investment when purchasing double glazed windows or secondary glazing will depend on property location or type of home renovation.
Of course, double glazed windows have two glass panes, and triple glazed windows have three, but there are many more energy-saving considerations.
Triple glazed windows are a preferred choice in cold climate Scandinavian countries for the heat retention benefits and maintaining a comfortable temperature within the home all year.
If your modern or traditional property is on a busy city road near a motorway or under a flight path, noise pollution can be a disruption to your lifestyle; the extra glass pane offers excellent noise reduction.
In this latest blog article, we take a closer look at the benefits of triple glazed windows.
Triple glazing units have three panes of glass; the additional pane of glass in triple glazed windows makes it more difficult for heat to escape. It improves thermal efficiency and helps to reduce heating bills.
The narrow gaps between each pane are filled with either krypton or argon gas, offering superior insulation performance.
The low thermal conductivity offers a comfortable temperature within the property; in the winter, it’s warm, and in the summer, it is cool.
Heat loss through building materials is measured using what is known as a U-Value. This represents how well a material insulates or holds heat within a room. It’s essential to ensure that your home’s roof, floor, and walls are protected to avoid any cold spots.
When comparing different windows’ energy rating, the industry standard is to assign each window a U-value. A high performing window is better at insulating, offers a lower U-value.
Single glazed windows have an average U-Value of 5.6, whereas triple glazed is as low as 0.8 and older double glazing falls somewhere in between at an average of 2.8, whereas with the latest advancement and technology and introduction of argon gas, warm edge thermal spacers, and Low-E glass recently installed high-quality double glazing can achieve u-value of 1.2 W/(m²K)
Overview of the advantages:
· Reduce energy bills
