Is Triple Glazing Essential?

In recent years, there has been a growing emphasis on the transition from double to triple glazing in the name of efficiency and energy conservation, however, many don’t know the difference. Many people are familiar with double glazing but are worried its not enough for their homes anymore.

Opinion is divided regarding the issue, triple glazing is much more popular in colder climate countries such as Sweden & Norway, and in these countries the glazing is augmented by insulated frames. Within warmer countries the benefit is debated and ultimately come down to a case of comfort. Glazing has to equate to the quality of insulation in your roof and walls in order to create a comfortable balance.

While double glazing has become somewhat of a standard and easily fits with most modern insulation, Triple glazing goes further in terms of its efficiency and heat retention. The main question is whether this is worth it in place of the already standard Double Glazing.

It its important to be comfortable in your own home. Some people don’t like to splash out on comfort and would rather focus on more essential things. Double glazing is the standard and for a reason, if you are worried about the quality difference, double glazing is the standard for a reason, however, triple glazing is more efficient and retains more heat, it really comes down to what you want to put into your home.

Some companies take advantage of people ignorance and will push Triple Glazing as an essential, but this is largely dependant on country, as for here in the UK, triple glazing is more of a luxury than it is an essential.

If you want to put that extra bit of comfort into your home, triple glazing may be worth the investment, however, if your worried about the essentials, double glazing is more than enough for your home.
