Triple glazing, as you might be able to tell from the name, is made up of three separate layers of glass. Between them the gaps are filled with argon, a heat insulating inert gas, and the whole arrangement is set within a rigid sealed unit.
The three panes of glass can be treated with a low-emissivity metallic coating that reflects some of the heat back into the home too, which increases their energy efficiency.
Originally popular in places like Canada and Scandinavia where there are bitterly cold winters, it is now becoming more and more popular across the world as the drive towards becoming more energy efficient increases. The triple glazing benefits are becoming more obvious in places with milder climates.
There are three key reasons people in countries like the UK are considering them:
With weather in the UK tending more and more towards the more extreme, and energy prices skyrocketing, now is the time to invest in triple glazing. It can reduce heat loss by as much as a third more than double-glazing, not to mention the reduction in noise pollution. As part of the global focus on being more environmentally friendly, triple glazing is likely to be in almost every home before long. While it is a little more expensive than double glazing, the cost will be offset over time by the fantastic savings. Plus, triple glazing tends to last longer than double glazing – it is less prone to condensation build up. An upgrade to triple glazing from single glazing or old windows will save hundreds of pounds per year, or around a 50% reduction in energy bills.
