Benefits of Triple Glazing
For decades, double glazing was the epitome of window manufacture in the UK, but, like everything, the industry evolves and improves to deliver even more benefits to consumers. These days, triple-glazed windows offer peak performance for domestic homes and commercial properties. Comprising three layers of glass per window unit, each one separated from the next by a layer of insulating air, they improve upon the performance of both their single and double-glazed competitors.
In this article, we’re going to take a look at the advantages of having triple-glazed windows installed on your property and how they can help you save money.
Increased insulation performance
We’ve already mentioned the layer of insulating air between each pane of glass, so that’s as good a place as any to start. Heat energy passes less quickly through air than it does through glass, so these layers act as thermal speed bumps, reducing the passage of heat from your home to the outside. This means that more heat is trapped in your home, keeping it warmer for longer.
Reduced noise transmission
As well as reducing heat transfer, triple glazing will also lower the amount of outside noise that manages to penetrate into your home or workplace. This is thanks to those same insulating layers, which cause the sound to disperse, making it harder to pass through each subsequent pane of glass.
Condensation is not an uncommon sight on the inside of windows, particularly during the winter months, when warm air settles on the cold glass and condenses into water droplets. With triple-glazed windows, the insulated air layers help to keep the innermost pane of glass closer to the ambient temperature of the room, so that warm air will not be able to condense so easily.
Increased energy efficiency
With fewer instances of heat loss, your property stays warmer for longer. This means you don’t have to heat your property for as long or at as high a temperature to feel the benefit. As a result, you use less energy due to your boiler’s fuel consumption being reduced, which will lead to lower energy bills.
Aside from specially commissioned security glass, like you might find at a bank, you won’t find a tougher and more secure window solution than one that is triple-glazed. The three layers of glass are held in place by a solid frame and are fully sealed along the edges. This gives the window unit considerable rigidity, making it tough to break by brute force. What’s more, most modern triple-glazed windows come with state-of-the-art security features, such as deadbolts, triple locks, and more, for your added peace of mind.
