Why Triple-Glazed Windows Are Ideal for Homes in Wisconsin
If you’re in the market for new windows, there are a lot of terms that get thrown at you, one of which is “triple-glazing.” Glazing is a term that many homeowners are not familiar with, but it is simply another word for glass, so when referring to triple-glazed windows, you’re talking about a window that has three panes of glass. Triple-glazed windows have several benefits that distinguish them from single-glazed windows, which have one pane of glass, and double-glazed windows, which have two panes of glass. For instance, they are more:
To put it simply, more panes of glass provide better insulation. This is largely because between each layer of glass there’s insulating gas, which is a non-toxic, odorless, colorless gas that is thicker than air, and therefore insulates better. In fact, a triple-glazed window with insulating gas has five times as many layers of insulation than a single-glazed window. This extra insulation will help your home’s interior remain warmer during the winter and cooler during the summer, which will lower the strain on your HVAC system and potentially lead to lower monthly energy costs. This enhanced energy efficiency is especially important in Wisconsin, where the long, frigid winters can cause you to crank up your heating 24/7.
The same insulating properties that protect against the outside elements—multiple glass panes and insulating gas—also protect against outside sounds. This means you will be able to rest comfortably in your home without hearing noise from neighbors or passing cars the way you might with single-glazed windows.
The three layers of glass produce a window that’s much thicker than a single-glazed one, which makes them a superior deterrent against vandals that would otherwise attempt to break in.
