Our standard glazing is dual pane: two panes of glass with Low E coatings and insulated with argon gas.
Compared to a single glass pane, dual pane glass cuts energy costs significantly because of low emissivity coating and the gas filled insulating space between the glass layers.
Triple pane glazing provides three panes of glass with Low E coatings.
Two glass spaces are insulated with argon gas between the panes.**
Triple Pane: Is it Right for You?
Triple pane (three panes of glass) doesn’t necessarily mean a window is more energy efficient.
Glass coatings, the type of gas used in the spaces between the glass, the design of the window, the materials used,
and how well it is installed all play a role in achieving the overall energy efficiency.
Consider the energy efficiency of the entire window not just the number of panes of glass it has.
A poorly designed or installed window, or a window made with inferior materials like vinyl,
may not be energy efficient regardless of the number of panes of glass.
Materials shrink and expand with cold/heat cycles and seals can begin to fail.
Once seals fail, the energy efficiency the windows claimed when new becomes greatly reduced.
