In recent years, many UK homeowners have benefitted from having stylish, energy-efficient triple-glazed windows and doors installed at their properties. If you’re planning to renovate your home, here are six reasons why we think you should consider making the switch to triple-glazing:
Improved Energy Efficiency
A triple-glazed window or door incorporates three panes of glass and is sealed within a frame. The tiny gaps between the two sealed units are filled with argon gas, providing effective insulation for the door or window unit.
Although typically more expensive, triple-glazing provides better insulation than standard double-glazing units, which incorporate only one layer of gas. Improved insulation can lead to savings on your energy bills. Triple-glazed windows can help your home retain much-needed heat during the cold winter months and keep it cool and comfortable during the summer.
When it comes to energy efficiency, you should pay attention to a glazing unit’s ‘U’ value. The lower this value is, the better the unit’s performance. Double-glazed units typically have a U value of around 1.4, whereas triple-glazed units should have a value no higher than 0.8.
On a related note, triple-glazing units are designed to eliminate cold spots that can cause condensation. So, you’ll be able to enjoy a clear view from your windows, whatever the weather!
Triple-glazed windows and doors are considerably more difficult to smash or break than most other types of glazing unit and can therefore help make your home more secure and deter intruders.
Increase Your Home’s Market Value
If your existing windows and doors are starting to look tired and dated, upgrading to triple-glazing could be a worthwhile investment.
Just think, if you’re planning to put your home on the market at any time in the foreseeable future, a new set of windows and doors could help you command a higher asking price from prospective buyers. And, in the meantime, you’ll be able to enjoy all the benefits of your brand-new triple-glazing.
