When it comes to replacement windows, many home owners are surprised at the number of available options. Without industry knowledge, however, it can be challenging to determine which type of window is the right fit for your needs. Understanding one of the most fundamental features of a window – the number of panes – can help make this decision a little easier. Below, our experts discuss the benefits of choosing triple pane glass for your window replacement project.
Outstanding Energy Efficiency
One of the best things about triple pane replacement windows is the impact they have on keeping energy costs down. This means they are much better than single or double pane windows at keeping cool air in during scorching hot Dallas summers and keeping the warm air in when temperatures begin to drop. In fact, triple pane windows are approximately 50% better at insulating a home than single pane and around 25% better than double pane windows.
What this means for home owners is that triple pane replacement windows can provide a significant savings on heating and cooling costs. So much so that the expense of a replacement window project can easily be offset and quickly be re-captured. It also means the home will be much more comfortable for residents who will stay cool in the summer and cozy in the winter.
Moisture build-up in and around window glass can easily lead to the growth of mold and mildew, a problem that’s not only disgusting, but dangerous to the health and wellbeing of your family. Condensation is caused by fluctuating temperatures between the air outside and the air indoors, resulting in water vapor and all the nastiness it can bring.
Because triple pane glass is much thicker, it’s also much more resistant to temperature transfer. Without this fluctuation, unwanted moisture in and around your windows will become a thing of the past. (Already dealing with mold or mildew? Here are a few tips to get the problem under control until you can schedule a window replacement.)
Without question, your family’s safety is one of your top priorities. There are lots of different ways to keep your home safe and secure, from alarm systems and security cameras to smart locks and – you guessed it – high quality, triple pane replacement windows.
Think about it. A would-be criminal would have a much more difficult time breaking through three layers of thick glass than breaking through one or even two. This means that, as an added bonus, triple pane replacement windows are much sturdier against an attempted break-in, keeping your family and all of your possessions safe and out of harm’s way.
Is it time for an upgrade?
If your windows are older, there’s a good chance they’re made of only two or possibly even just one single pane of glass. As a result, you’re likely paying more than you should be on energy costs and possibly even placing your family at risk. A triple pane window replacement can resolve all of this, saving you money over the long term and giving you peace of mind.
