In the summertime, replacing the windows in your home isn’t given a second thought. The warmer months are a carefree time of the odd bit of sunshine, BBQs and open windows, but when the cold hits, this thinking dramatically changes.
Draughts and cold winter nights can wreak havoc on a home, affecting your family’s comfort and costing you more on your energy bills. Asking if triple glazing is worth the extra money is a valid question when it comes to updating your home.
Triple glazing is 3 panes of glass with 2 gaps filled with argon gas. This gas acts as a natural insulator to keep your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer, but can this be proven? Well, U-values play an integral role here to measure a product’s energy efficiency.
Old single glazing has a U-Value of around 5.8. A-rated triple glazing windows, like the ones sold by A&B Assets, have a U-Value of around 0.8; proving triple glazing offers improved comfort in your home for you and your family in the harsh winter months. Increased protection from the elements has seen triple glazing pretty much installed as standard throughout Scandinavian countries.
Triple glazing’s strengths lie in retaining your home’s heat and keeping the outside weather conditions at bay. With energy bills rising every year, these strengths are an effective method of saving money on your energy bills. Your home’s carbon footprint may also be dramatically cut, considering the less time heating is turned on.
Increasing the energy efficiency of your home could lead to a dramatic increase in the overall value of your home. When updating your casement, bay, tilt and turn or shaped windows, considering triple glazing is a great investment for your future.
Improved warmth of the home isn’t the only benefit offered by triple glazing, it also offers increased protection from outside noise. 3 panes of glass and argon gas reduce the ability of sound to enter your home resulting in a quieter home; perfect for homes that are next to a busy road or neighbourhood.
