Double Glazing or Triple Glazing: Which Is Best For Your Home?

Winter is just around the corner which means you should ensure your home is well insulated before the cold weather sets in.

Harsh weather conditions can take their toll on your home’s exterior over time which means components such as your windows may not be insulating your home as well as they once used to. 

If you’re particularly noticing a cool draught from your windows then it could be a sign that you should 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 could also reduce your energy bills and save you money in the long run.

When it comes to choosing a new set of windows for your home, how do you know which is best – double or triple glazing?

We’ve explained everything you need to know about double and triple glazed windows, so you can make the most informative decision when it comes to choosing new windows for your home. 

What’s the difference between double and triple glazing?

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

Double glazed windows tend to be 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 if you want to retain the maximum amount of heat in your home, then you’re best opting for triple glazing.  

That being said, it’s highly unlikely that you’ll need to get triple glazed windows in every room of your home and so it’s best to speak with an expert who will help you to find the perfect combination.
