If you’re looking to replace the windows in your property then there is a lot to consider. From the materials used to the style of each window, the choices sometimes appear endless… then of course there is the choice between single, double or triple paned windows.
Double or triple paned windows feature two or three sheets of glass separated by a thin layer of glass; helping to improve thermal insulation and reducing noise from the outside world. If you take simple product price, then double pane windows certainly come in as the cheaper item that gives you the most value for your money.
Double panes can reflect up to 90% of the energy; that means keeping out 90% of the heat on a hot day or retaining 90% of the heat inside on those cold days. Double paned, when compared to triple, also allows more natural light into the room – although this is only a marginal benefit in the overall problem.
On the other hand, triple pane windows can reflect up to 97% of energy, making them the optimal choice if you are looking to keep your property running as efficient as possible. Triple paned will ensure your heating and cooling systems are not having to work harder than is necessary. They also provide maximum prevention from outside noise so if you live on a busy road or in a large city these could be a great solution.
Of course there are pros and cons to all three styles of window panes – and there is no reason why each room has to have the same level of insulation. Get in touch with us today to have a chat and let us help you to find the best solution for your home.
