Residents of central Nebraska may not know about Triple Pane Replacement Windows. For the last 20 years, dual pane window technology has saved tri-city homeowners countless dollars on heating and cooling bills. And while dual pane is still an excellent value (we sell those too!) there’s a new replacement windows technology taking hold, Triple Pane. Superior insulation, sound control and condensation resistance make these innovative products an Energystar favorite. With our national buying power Window Depot USA of Lincoln can offer you Triple Pane Replacement Windows technology, for what our competitors sell Dual Pane.
Triple Pane Windows
In all of the windows that Window Depot USA sells the glass has at least TWO panes. Putting two panes of glass inside of one window is referred to as ‘dual pane’, and is sometimes called ‘thermo-pane’.
These two panes of glass provide an extra barrier to heat loss (or gain) during the heating and cooling months of the year. The two panes of glass, plus the airspace between is what sets the stage for improved insulation. Then when Low E coatings and specialized gas fills like Argon are incorporated we have what we call an Insulated Glass Unit. It is really the engine of the window.
As amazing as dual pane windows are, there is a ‘next level’ energy saving technology, and that is Triple Pane. As you might expect this simply means that a THIRD layer of glass is incorporated into the Insulated Glass Unit. But while this may sound simple, the effects are dramatic!
INCREASED INSULATING POWER
Our Triple Pane windows can increase the U Factor of dual pane, clear glass windows by up to 52%. This improvement comes from a combination of the extra pane of glass, multiple cavities that contain insulating ‘blankets’ of Argon gas, and additional glass surfaces on which to apply our Low E coating technology.Whether you live in a climate that demands more heating, or cooling of your home the key to our Triple Pane insulating power is stopping heat flow.
In heating climates, triple-pane windows keep more of your warmth and energy IN. In cooling climates, triple-pane windows keep more of the radiant heat and temperatures OUT. As Nebraskans, we know too well how our weather can go from one extreme to the other so it is comforting to know you will have a window that can hold up in any type of weather.
ENHANCED CONDENSATION RESISTANCE
Condensation Resistance Factor (CRF) is a measurement used to highlight a windows ability to resist condensation from forming. Whenever condensation is present, the first thing to look for is the atmospheric conditions or more simply put, is your home encouraging condensation. This can come from high humidity levels and/or lack of sufficient air-flow in the home and is magnified by windows that do not provide good insulation.The reason why insufficient windows promote condensation is that the surface of the glass gets cooler as heat escapes.
Highly insulating windows keep the temperature on the surface of the glass warmer, and thus more resistance to condensing the moisture rich air in the atmosphere of your home. Our triple pane windows enhance condensation resistance of normal clear glass windows up to 49%, and can even improve normal dual pane Low E windows by over 20%. There are many reasons to promote good condensation resistance. Excess moisture can lead to rotted window sills, and even mold and mildew promotion. Triple Pane windows offer the highest CRF’s available.
