The short answer, as you may have thought, is yes.When it comes to thermal performance, triple glazing wins hands down. The energy efficiency of a window is measured by its U-value – the lower the number, the better. Double glazed windows are typically given a U-value of 1.6, whereas triple glazed windows are rated an impressive 0.8.This means that by simply adding an extra level of insulation, triple glazed windows can provide you with even more warmth throughout the year.And if you live on a particularly rowdy street, and find yourself struggling to sleep through the noise, triple glazing might be your saviour. By the time the sound wave gets through to the final pane of glass (if it gets through at all), it is much quieter and less noticeable than it would be with double or single glazed panes.Plus, three layers of glass are much harder to break than two, making triple glazing a much better option if security is one of your priorities.However, one drawback to triple glazing is that it tends to block out light. It’s much harder for light to penetrate that extra level of glass, which might cause your room to feel a little dimmer.Whilst both double and triple glazing are excellent ways to insulate your home, triple glazed windows have the overall edge.CategoryDouble glazingTriple glazingThermal performance✔ Sound insulation✔Home security✔Light penetration✔ Cost✔ Next stepsWhether you go for double glazing or triple glazing, you can be sure that installing this type of insulation will save you a penny on your bills.

If you’re familiar with double glazing, then you’ll be pretty comfortable with its not-so-distant cousin, triple glazing. Triple glazing takes double glazing that extra step further, by simply adding another pane of glass to the window. This third pane of glass acts as an extra layer of insulation to your house, keeping you cosy during those bitter winter months. How does it work? Triple glazing is a bit like layering up before you brave the winter chill – except the insulation isn’t just coming from the extra layers. There is also a small gap between each of the three panes of glass, which is either filled with air or an insulating gas, such as argon. Argon is much heavier than air, which means it acts as a stronger barrier against any escaping heat.This extra third layer also comes with other benefits, such as blocking out any outside noise, providing greater security, and adding value to your home (more on that later). But be careful, you’ll want to double check whether your walls can withstand the weight of triple glazed windows, as the extra layer can sometimes cause structural damage to walls. Does triple glazing keep heat out? As well as locking in heat, triple glazing also prevents heat from entering your home through the windows in the summer months. The G-Value of a window – which measures the amount of solar intake that the glass allows – tends to be lower for triple glazed windows. And the lower the number, the more effective the glazing is at controlling the temperature inside.This is ideal for conservatories that tend to overheat in the summer, suffering from what experts in the field call ‘the greenhouse effect’. Does triple glazing reduce condensation? With triple glazing, you’ll be able to significantly reduce the risk of getting window condensation. Since triple glazed windows have an extra pane of glass, they offer more insulation, and therefore reduce a build up of moisture around the window.
