Single Glazing is not often found in many households nowadays with double glazing products becoming very much the standard installation in new homes thanks to their fantastic energy efficient properties and the effectiveness of its security features.
This has been the norm for quite some time now but we could be about to see a shift to Triple Glazing. Triple Glazing has been around for a while now but it is starting to gather momentum as the world shifts its focus onto climate change and cleaner, renewable energy in order to preserve our planet for future generations.
What benefits do triple glazing have compared to double glazing?
Their qualities are very similar but essentially triple glazing is double glazing on steroids. For example, triple glazing is roughly 40% more thermally efficient than the highest rated double-glazing windows. They also vastly reduce noise from entering your home making them perfect for properties on busy streets and roads.
Another fantastic benefit is an obvious one and that is increased security. 3 panes of glass are a lot harder to break through compared to 2 or 1 and therefore they will vastly increase your houses defences against any one that may want to take a peep inside to take some of your valuable belongings. This coupled with its energy efficiency rating and ability to keep your home warmer during the winter and cooler during the summer makes triple glazing the perfect product for homes of the future.
However, there are a few cons when it comes to triple glazing windows and these are:
- A higher price tag than double glazing windows
- The units don’t tend to last as long as double-glazing windows
- The extra weight of triple glazing can put added strain on frames and hinges.
Although Triple Glazing maybe a bit pricier it has many benefits that can help you save money on energy bills in the future and with the world shifting to a more energy efficient lifestyle they could be the product of the future for a new generation of homes.
