Double Glazing vs Triple Glazing
Most modern houses, or at least those that have had their windows replaced, will have double glazing. Although this offers superior energy efficiency when compared with single glazing, there is now a more energy-efficient option. Triple glazing.
Triple glazing is something we’ve offered for a number of years, however it still remains less popular than double glazing. This is partly because double glazing has been around for longer, but also because triple glazing isn’t right for everyone.
Many people will see a benefit between upgrading their old double glazing, from around the year 2000, to newer double glazing as the energy efficiency of glass has improved so much over the last 17+ years. With that being said, triple glazing does offer even better heat retention, but the cost is higher than that of double glazing. The payback on energy saved is also similar between double glazing and triple glazing, so for some people double glazing remains their glass of choice.
Most people make the extra investment between double and triple glazing to gain the added benefit of improved sound insulation. If you live near a train line, or on a busy main road, you may wish to reduce the sound that you hear in your home.
In addition, if you have highly energy efficient wall and loft insulation you may experience cold spots around your windows if they don’t match up to the efficiency of the rest of your home.
