When you’re thinking about replacing your windows, what is the best option for you? We all want a warmer, safer home, and replacement glazing will go a long way to achieving this. Alongside a wide range of styles and configurations to choose from, you’ll need to decide whether you want your new windows to be double or triple glazed. Which one is right for you will ultimately depend on your expectations and the location of your home.
When is triple glazing beneficial?
Triple glazed windows are becoming increasingly common in new build properties. As we continually look for new ways to increase our home’s energy efficiency levels and reduce our carbon footprint, triple glazing will become more popular. Triple glazing is particularly beneficial if you:
- Live in a noisy environment (near a busy motorway or airport, or in a city centre) – triple glazing provides excellent levels of acoustic insulation, reducing outside noise levels by up to 10 decibels more than double glazing.
- Want to glaze large areas without compromising on performance – triple glazing will retain its high levels of energy efficiency even when used to glaze over sized apertures.
- Have persistent problems with interior condensation – triple glazing incorporates warm edge spacers into the design of the sealed unit. This eradicates any problems of damp, condensation, and heat loss.
- Want a truly energy efficient home – triple glazing will make your home as energy efficient as possible. Reduce your carbon footprint and protect the planet for future generations.
