Triple pane windows refer to windows with two spacers and three panes of glass that offer additional insulation features. If you want a home improvement that will give you a high return on investment, replacing your windows with triple pane windows is a good option.
Here are the benefits of triple pane windows:
They Are Soundproof
Triple glass windows can help prevent sound transmission due to the additional pane of glass and the incorporation of spacers between the panes. Spacers help keep the glass panes of the windows at the right distance, which helps to reduce the entry of outside noise. If you live near a busy street, aircraft facility, or construction area, installing triple glass windows can help you enjoy a comfortable indoor environment free of outdoor noise.
More Energy Effective
Three-pane windows may keep your home cooler during hot seasons and warmer during cold seasons. They usually have a high R-value (ability to resist heat flow) that enables them to keep your home warmer during cold seasons.
These windows also usually have a low SHGC (solar heat gain coefficient) that helps them block solar rays during hot seasons. When solar heat is prevented from entering your home, your cooling bills can go down.
Moisture forms when warm air gets into contact with a cold surface. If your home has a high humidity level during cold seasons, condensation can occur on the inner side of the window glass. When condensation takes place on the inner side of your window, it can cause wooden frames to warp or rot. This can also damage your walls and encourage mold and mildew growth. Three-pane windows have extra glass panes that offer better insulation and thus reduce the probability of condensation.
The extra glass layers of three-way pane windows offer increased strength and security. The windows are sturdy and thus more challenging for intruders to break through. Having increased window strength also safeguards your house against harsh weather and offers extra wind resistance.
Improve Your Home’s Appearance
You can customize triple glass windows to suit your preferred size, style, and shape. You can choose a style that perfectly complements your home’s architecture. The following are styles you can choose:
• Sliding windows
• Double hung windows
• Awning windows
• Casement windows
• Picture windows
• Bow windows
• Bay windows
You can also decide the best frame that you want for your windows. You can go for a fiberglass frame or vinyl frame as both go well with triple glass windows.
