Triple glazing vs Double glazing – is it worth upgrading?

Whilst double glazing remains the most popular choice on UK homes, homeowners regularly consider triple glazing instead. But is it really worth the upgrade? Let’s take a closer look and find out.

What is triple glazing?

Triple glazing works by securing three panes of glass within a sealed window frame. The gaps between each pane are filled with air or an insulating gas, such as Argon, which enhances the windows ability to retain heat.

Why you should have triple glazing installed

Reasons to opt for double glazing

Double glazing works the same as triple glazing, however only two panes of glass are used instead of three. Here’s what it has to offer:

What if you already have energy efficient double glazing?

Triple glazing may not be necessary, if you already have energy efficient double glazing. Having secondary glazing fitted instead could provide the boost to security, thermal performance and noise reduction that you’re looking for.

With that said, considerably more heat is lost through a home’s windows than the walls. Therefore, homes with a lot of windows or bi-folding doors could benefit considerably from the improved thermal performance provided by triple glazing.
