When double glazing first appeared on the market, it revolutionised windows by offering improved levels of insulation and better protection against external noise.
In fact, these days, building regulations dictate that the only houses allowed to have single glazing are listed buildings. However, as energy prices start to spiral out of control, many homeowners are looking at ways to make their property more energy efficient. So, with this in mind, we thought we would take a look at some of the reasons why you should consider installing triple glazing in your home.
Reduced Heat Loss
With triple glazing windows, you will see significantly less heat loss than with double glazing due to the increased thickness of the glass and the extra layer of glazing. This is especially beneficial in many modern homes where large, glazed areas such as feature windows and bi-fold doors are now the norm. The fact triple glazing helps to keep heat within the property makes your home more energy efficient and helps keep heating bills at a minimum, even in the cold winter months.
Reduced Levels of Noise
For people who live on main roads or in busy areas external noise can prove really annoying. While double glazed windows keep out noise to an extent, triple glazing takes this to another level, when it comes to keeping the noise of traffic and loud noisy neighbours from your home.
With many burglaries being opportunist crimes where would-be intruders are looking for the easy option, anything you can do to make your house more secure will significantly reduce the chance of being targeted. Triple glazed windows are definitely a deterrent, as the thickness of the glass and extra layers make them extremely difficult to break.
While there is obviously a cost implication when it comes to triple glazing, we feel the benefits listed above make it well worthwhile, even more so when you consider that it is also likely to add value to your home. Z
