The Benefits of Triple Glazing [INFOGRAPHIC]
In this blog post, we unveil an infographic titled “The Benefits of Triple Glazing”. Triple glazing is when your home benefits from three panes of glass rather than one or two window panes. This extra pain increases energy efficiency and reduces the amount of outside noise that makes it into your home.
These benefits are particularly apparent when you upgrade from single glazing to triple glazing. The jump in benefits when you upgrade from double glazing to triple glazing is less significant, but it’s usually worth the extra expense, particularly if your double glazing windows are due for renewal due to aging and wear.
The benefits of triple glazing
The energy efficiency of a window is measured by the U-Value. The lower the U-Value, the better. Single glazed windows have a U-Value of 5. Double glazing has a U-Value of around 1-3, depending on the age of the double glazing. Triple glazing has a U-Value or 0. This actually beats the U-Value of walls. Your walls have a U-Value of around 0.3. This means the ‘payback period’ for triple glazing is generally much quicker than that obtained from single or double glazing.
Whilst you should expect to pay more for triple glazing, those costs are generally not significant. The added cost of installing triple glazing is well worth it given the U-Value benefits you derive from doing so. We particularly recommend you invest in triple glazing if you are building a new home or replacing existing windows anyway.
Another benefit derived from triple glazing is a noticeable reduction in noise pollution. Thus, triple glazing is particularly beneficial for those of you who happen to live in a noisy area. If you live in a built-up area, or adjacent to a school or railway line, installing triple glazing really is a no-brainer.
Now, without further ado, we now reveal our new infographic titled “The Benefits of Double Glazing”. We hope you will enjoy this infographic.
