You DON’T need triple glazing to insulate your home

The glass you choose in your windows can make a significant difference to how they perform once installed in your home – but contrary to popular opinion three panes are not always better than two.

Despite the extra cost, triple glazing is becoming more popular than ever. According to Steve Rawding, Sales and Marketing Director at SEH BAC, however, you don’t need triple glazing to maximise the comfort in your home.

That’s because normal double glazing will suffice with high-performance Comfort glass.

“Glass is a crucial factor in defining the energy performance of your windows and homeowners automatically think more panes mean more savings but that’s not the case,” said Steve.

“With three layers of glass, triple glazing is designed for insulation, however when you’ve got special coated glass you not only get the same level of insulation as a triple glazed unit, but you also get all the benefits triple glazing doesn’t provide, including enhanced security, energy efficiency, and improved noise reduction.”

Smart Low-E coatings on glass, a one-way door for trapping and holding energy, stop 56% more internal heat escaping, and for a good night’s sleep, it provides 20% better noise reduction than older-style double glazing and is also better than triple glazing for reducing outside noise.

As the glass is laminated, it doesn’t shatter, making it much more secure, and it also helps protect furniture from fading, blocking 99% of damaging UV rays.

“Comfort glass ticks all the boxes and provides better performance than triple glazing,” added Steve. “And with the prospect of new building regulations to make homes more efficient and secure, Comfort glass sealed units will be more in line with them than triple glazing. So, it makes more sense to choose Comfort glass.”
