Windows contribute to your home’s comfort, energy efficiency and protection against weather extremes. You can make the most of these benefits by investing in triple-pane windows.
In this post, we’ll discuss more reasons to upgrade your existing windows to triple-pane ones.
What Are Triple-Pane Windows?
Triple-pane windows are now becoming more popular as the U.S. Department of Energy is leaning toward R-5 windows or hurricane-resistant windows. Window insulation is important in areas that experience a lot of temperature extremes. They help in preventing conditioned air from escaping your home.
Multiple layers of glass make up insulated windows. These glass layers are separated by a spacer, which can be a piece of metal or foam. The spacer forms a pocket between two glass panes and manufacturers improve the insulation properties of windows by filling the pockets with inert gas, such as argon or krypton.
Why Invest in Triple-Pane Windows?
Like quality vinyl siding, triple-glazed windows have excellent insulating properties and help in making your home more peaceful by reducing sound transmission. These windows are also better at resisting condensation and the thicker glass area is harder to break. The added layers of glass not only increase your home’s security but they can also give you energy savings.
Installing triple-pane windows has the same effect of upgrading your walls and ceilings from R-20 to R-40. They can significantly decrease relative heat loss, increasing thermal comfort indoors. Using a combination of double and triple-pane windows can be used with a structure’s orientation to further save on energy costs.
