Triple Pane Windows vs. Double Pane: What’s Better?
Looking for a way to make your home more comfortable and energy-efficient? Look no further than Synergetic Home, Las Vegas, we’ve got you covered! When it comes to window replacement, many homeowners wonder whether they should opt for double or triple pane windows. While both types have their benefits, for desert climates we recommend our double pane blue glass low-e 340 option as it is more energy efficient for a hot climate, and does a better job in heat reduction.
Triple Pane Windows vs. Double Pane
So, what’s the difference between double and triple pane windows? Simply put, a pane is a sheet of glass in your window, and double-pane windows have two panes, while triple-pane windows have three. Insulated glass units (IGUs) combine multiple panes with an energy-efficient spacer, usually filled with Argon or Krypton gas for even more efficiency.
Double pane blue glass low-e 340 is an excellent choice for homeowners who are looking to reduce their energy bills while keeping their homes comfortable during hot summers. This glass has a low-emissivity coating that helps to reflect heat away from the home, preventing it from penetrating through the windows. In addition to the low-e coating, the blue tint of the glass also helps to reduce heat gain by blocking a portion of the sun’s radiation. The combination of the low-e coating and blue tint work together to provide a powerful heat reduction solution.
Triple pane windows have an added benefit of improved noise-reduction features. Their three layers of glass and insulating gas-filled spaces effectively dampen sound transmission and block noise, making your home quieter. The additional pane of glass in a triple pane window creates a better insulating barrier. This helps trap heat and prevent it from escaping, resulting in a warmer and, for cold climates, more energy-efficient home.
