Triple glazing is a step up from double glazing and the sure-fire way to run a cheaper and more comfortable home as well as more energy efficient. The norm in Northern Europe and Scandinavia – triple glazing is the perfect solution to enjoying a warmer home for less during those harsh cold winter months and is expected to become increasingly common over the next few years in the UK – meaning now is the time to future proof your home.
Triple glazed can be over five times more effective than single glazed windows. A change like this can make a substantial difference in your household energy bills which is welcomed when energy bills continue to rise year after year.
With your triple glazing, you’ll notice a warmer home – particularly during those winter months. Heat retention is greatly improved and those pesky draughts will become a thing of the past.
With this, you’ll also notice a quieter home as well, thanks to the three panes of glass and argon gas blocking out the sounds ability to travel into your home as easily. Perfect if you live by a busy road or neighbourhood.
Triple glazing works by providing a further barrier against the cold outside and preventing heat from escaping outside. In the case of triple glazing, there are three panes of glass with two gaps filled with argon gas. These air gaps are too small to allow the air to circulate and therefore prevent heat transfer by convection. Because the argon gas is a poor conductor, it reduces the rate of heat loss through the window.
However, it is important that only experienced professionals install triple glazing to ensure you get the very best results from your investment. Triple glazing must be constructed in the correct way with high specification glass, spacer bar and gas filling in order to achieve the maximum benefits. We incorporate the highest specification ‘soft coat’ glass combined with argon gas filling both cavities and bond all of this together using ‘warm edge’ spacer bar to prevent cold bridging around the edges.
