Double Glazing or Triple Glazing: Which Comes Out On Top?

With winter just around the corner, you’ll want to ensure your home is thermally efficient before the harsh weather conditions arrive. 

If your windows are over ten years old, they may not be insulating your home as well as they used to. If you’re particularly noticing a draught from your windows then it’s time to consider investing in replacements. 

Not only will a new set of windows improve your home’s aesthetic appeal and help to keep your property draught-free, but they can reduce your energy bills too – saving you money in the long run.

Both double and triple glazed windows are a good option to help retain heat in your home, but that’s not all. They can also reduce the amount of unwanted noise coming from outdoors and make your home much more secure!

When it comes to choosing the perfect windows for your home, how do you know which is best – double or triple glazing?

We’ve covered the differences between the two, so you can make the most informative decision. 

Double vs. Triple Glazing

The main difference between double and triple glazing is quite straightforward. Double glazed windows contain two pieces of glass whereas a triple glazed window is composed of three glass panes.  

Double glazed windows are still amongst the most popular choice for homeowners as they were introduced into the UK long before triple glazed windows. That doesn’t mean to say that triple glazed windows are second best though. 

Both windows help to make your home more thermal efficient, but triple glazing is the best option if you want to retain the maximum amount of heat in your home.  

That being said, you probably won’t need to get triple glazed windows in every room of your home and so it’s best to speak with an expert first who will help you find the perfect combination.
