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 South East home improvement company 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 means more savings but that’s not the case,’ said Steve.

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. With better performance than triple glazing, Comfort glass sealed units are also more energy efficient than triple glazing. 

With more than 50 years’ experience installing to homes in Suffolk, Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Kent, and Essex, SEH BAC can help you decide the best replacement windows for you.
